This season, men are discarding casual wear to embrace a sharper look. The tailored trend has been prominent on the catwalks and now stylish guys are adopting this look by swapping jeans and tees for slim fit suits and beautifully tailored formal shirts. You don’t have to go out and buy a brand new designer suit to smarten up your wardrobe; a few carefully selected key pieces will do the trick.
For a professional and polished appearance, a crisp white shirt is a wardrobe must-have. Make sure it fits perfectly and it is vital that your shirt is crease-free. Fashion really is cyclical and classic accessories which haven’t been prevalent for years have made a re-appearance. For a subtle nod towards the gentlemanly aesthetic, add a silk handkerchief to your jacket’s breast pocket. A vibrant colour will immediately brighten up your outfit and a slim tie in a similar shade will pull the look together. There is a huge selection of cufflinks available at the moment. Add a touch of humour to your double cuff shirt by opting for a quirky design.
The dapper trend is not solely for the office. The off-duty look has also smartened up with men opting to wear sleek shirts paired with jeans at the weekends and for evenings on the town. For a sharp yet casual outfit, go for a stylish men’s shirt with a unique design and an eye-catching pattern. Traditional English shirt maker, Hawes & Curtis, has a fantastic range of striking fashion shirts to accommodate contemporary gentlemen. Wear your shirt collar open without a tie and dress it down with jeans or chinos. A tailored blazer will complete the look.
