It looks like we are all less creative these days with the advent of Internet and the birth of Instagram feeds. Influencers tell us what to wear, how to wear it, and we all follow suit. They can’t tell us though which trend to follow, and which to ignore.
The structured bag is one trend with staying power that is worth investing in. The little hand-held sculpture is sure to bring the Grace Kelly in you, regardless if you wear it with jeans or with a cocktail dress. We are not trying to influence you, but we’ve done some work to help you. You are welcome.
From the myriad of bags available in stores, we chose few that are affordable and versatile (cross-body, shoulder, tiny-tiny). Incidentally, they are also bags we wish we had in our closet.

Creating a checklist of fashion staples isn’t some way of making everyone conform to a certain type of style. On the contrary, wardrobe staples create a foundation for every person’s wardrobe which, in turn, allows them to express themselves however they want with the other clothes and accessories they purchase.
Today we’re detailing a list of men’s wardrobe must-haves; items that will ensure he always has something to build a stylish outfit around. Whether you’re studying up for yourself, a friend, a parent or a special someone, you’ll definitely come away with some shopping inspiration. We suggest you take notes.
A White Dress Shirt
The crisper and whiter this dress shirt is, the better. It’s easy to layer and accessorize and goes with pretty much everything. This is a good staple for women, too. Make sure you keep your white dress shirt pressed and spotless because anything less will read sloppy.
Crew Neck Tee
In addition to a crisp, white dress shirt, make sure you’ve got several crew neck tees in your wardrobe, as well. Choose whatever colors you’re drawn to most. The more neutral (red, white, black, blue, brown), though, the easier they’ll be to style. Wear them under blazers, cardigans or even on their own.
Dark Denim Jeans
This is another wardrobe staple that works for both sexes. Dark denim jeans that fit impeccably are timeless and, again, easy to pair with whatever else is hanging in your closet. Don’t hesitate to invest in a quality pair — just make sure they’re not embellished, as trendy items don’t have as long of a shelf life.
If you’re not wearing a pair of jeans, the Chino pants are likely going to be the next article of clothing you reach for when dressing yourself in the morning. They’re classy, timeless and neutral. In other words: they are versatile and easy to style.
Like a fitted shirt or pair of jeans, a blazer is another one of those wardrobe staples you just can’t skip. Even if you’re unsure about how much wear it’ll get, give this one a chance, as its versatility may surprise you. You can wear it over that crisp tee or crew neck or you can even dress up a printed tee with it. Neutral colors and unembellished designs are your best bet when it comes to longevity.
A Quality Belt
The amount of times you reach for a neutral belt may astound you. Belts are such an easy way to “spice up” your outfit — a detail that shows you’ve got a sense of style, but aren’t trying too hard. Opt for a neutral, unembellished belt in both black and brown and you’ll never need to buy another belt again.
A Handsome Watch
Feel free to tap into your own style preferences with this men’s wardrobe staple. Again, since this is an essential item, we recommend investing a little bit into something that’ll last you for many, many years. When shopping for a handsome watch, think about its potential over the long term. Is this something you could pass down to your son? And your son to his son? If so, that’s the kind of show stopper watch that’ll earn you compliments and prove to be a worthy investment.
BONUS: Knee-Length Shorts
We felt the need to add one more item to our list: knee length shorts. While this one’s not a must have like the other items on our list are, they’re one of those pieces that’ll serve men ages 20 to 40 very well. We suggest buying a pair or two in neutral colors. They’re easy to dress up or down and will get you through the warm months in cool style.
Would you add or subtract anything from our list of men’s wardrobe staples? And if you’re a women, what are your thoughts on a man with excellent fashion taste? Does it make him more desirable? On the flip side, does a lack of style sense deter you from pursuing him?
