A guest post from Regina, a stylist with the Ties n Cuffs blog (bio below).
Fads will always continue to pop up through the years, but there are some timeless pieces that will never go out of style. That being said, it can be very hard to discern between the trendy and the eternally fashionable at times. If you want to make the most of your wardrobe, you’ll need to fill it with staples that can help tie together an outfit in almost any situation. To make things easier, we picked out these five things that every dapper dad loves to wear.
For the longest time, cufflinks were considered to be a subtle accessory that should only be used for special occasions or upscale corporate wear. However, this isn’t the case anymore. Cufflinks are now quickly gaining the respect they deserve for adding a personalised touch to any outfit. They’re elegant, and help you keep your suit’s cuffs in perfect shape. What’s not to love?
2. A Tailored Suit
A suit that fits well will be a suit that flatters you, helps you look professional and will turn heads. While tailored suits may be somewhat expensive, the fact is that they are investments that are well-made.
The best part about suits is that you don’t have to wear the complete set to make a great fashion statement. A beautifully tailored suit jacket paired with a pair of jeans or khakis can be the perfect outfit while you’re out on the town with friends.
3. A Set Of Quality Ties
It’s very hard not to take notice of a high quality silk tie, and it’s a wardrobe staple that can go from the boardroom to a hot date with ease. The best part about silk ties is that they can literally set your outfit’s colour scheme, or just add a unique pop of color to an otherwise drab shirt.
Men who pride themselves on their personal style will often have a tie collection that ranges from single colour silk ties to customized ties for special occasions. Truth be told, you really can never have too many ties.
4. A Pair Of Jeans That Actually Fits
Jeans will always be a fashion wardrobe staple – regardless of your gender, income, or background. Good denim will always flatter its wearer, and will always add a touch of masculinity to a weekend outfit. The best thing about jeans is that they can be dressed up or down to suit almost any occasion, and that they can offer you a nearly infinite number of looks.
5. Belts And Belt Buckles
Belts, much like cufflinks, both tie an outfit together and help you keep your clothing in the right position. A good belt can make a personal statement, and can easily transform business fashion into club fashion with a simple switch of the belt buckle. In most cases, a simple black leather belt is the best wardrobe staple choice, mostly because it can go with almost any suit or casual jean combination. However, we’ve noticed that quite a few stylish men have belt collections that rival their tie collections – and that’s not a bad thing, either.
A good wardrobe is one that will help you maintain a touch of class in any situation. It’s a must for those who want to improve their career, their social lives, and even their love lives. Even though a good wardrobe is necessary for a better life, great style can be its own reward, too.
