A New Year is the perfect time for a new start and there’s no better way to start afresh than with a new winter wardrobe. As well as our own wardrobe, we need to give some consideration to our man’s. As January sets in, a man’s wardrobe can begin to tire but the New Year is the perfect time to set this right. Here’s how you can make sure that your man has the catwalk look for 2014.
Out With the Old, In With the New
The first thing that you have to do is get rid of all those old clothes he will never wear (and the ones you hate and don’t want him to wear). By doing this, you’ll immediately be able to spot gaps in his wardrobe and, as a result, you can prioritise what you buy. Plus, by donating to charity, you’ll be doing some good for the community and could potentially fulfil a New Year’s resolution. Even the Beckhams are doing it, so there really is no excuse.
Make Smart Casual the Standard
Once you’ve highlighted the gaps you’ll need to fill them. In order to do this, you should think of an overarching theme and stick to it. This year’s fashion shows have really highlighted the smart casual look as being the one that will define 2014. Blazers, long sleeved shirts and smart shoes are all perfect for this and can be teemed with jeans to create the ultimate look. The level of formality you opt or will depend entirely on your man (he has to be comfortable and confident after all), but handmade leather shoes from somewhere like New and Lingwood are nigh on essential.
Start the Summer Prep Early
Finally, it is never too soon to start preparing for summer. This year should see a complete abandonment of slogan t-shirts and instead you should opt for a smart polo t-shirt. These are incredibly versatile and can be worn almost anywhere; thus making them the perfect must have item for any man’s new wardrobe.
To conclude, if your man’s wardrobe is starting to look a little tired, now is the perfect time to refresh it. It is best to make a clean break from the 2013 wardrobe, so clear some space and incorporate an entirely new look for the upcoming season. Endeavour to make smart casual the norm and start preparing for summer now. It’ll be here before you know it.
