Although most of us would love to have a closet filled with elegant clothes, few of us have the budget to own all our favorite looks. But with these four timeless, classic wardrobe pieces, it's possible to create a variety of outfits without breaking the bank.
This piece is essential for a wardrobe, as it can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Ideally, the best shirt should be a light color (such as ivory, light blue, pink, or lavender), but white is also suitable. If it has any sort of pattern, it should be subtle tone-on-tone vertical stripes, and this is a wardrobe piece to splurge on. Designer shirts for men are usually tailored to best fit your figure, and they look great with or without a jacket. For casual wear, a designer button-down shirt can be paired with a nice pair of dark jeans and the sleeves rolled up, but it looks equally fabulous under a suit jacket for a professional or formal look.
Because this garment is often invisible, some men will neglect it, but a high-quality undershirt is essential for presenting a polished look. The undershirt should be tailored to your shirt, so you don't want to wear a tank top with an light-colored button-down shirt. The best undershirts aren't sleeveless, but have a small sleeve on them; this helps to protect your more expensive designer shirt from armpit stains and ring-around-the-collar.
Every man needs a pair of comfortable jeans, but not every man looks good in stonewashed denim. Dark blue jeans are less sloppy-looking than lighter washes, but the most essential part of choosing your jeans is fit. Skinny jeans or pencil jeans don't look good on most men, but a straight leg or trouser cut will provide extra comfort and a more attractive look.
