A new year often means a new wardrobe update, and if you are one of many men across the country looking to outdo yourself in the style stakes in 2024, then there are a few things you are going to want to add to your casual wardrobe because,l et’s face it, getting suited and booted right is easy.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at the 8 casual pieces every man should own in 2024.
1. A Gilet
A stylish gilet is a must for any man’s wardrobe. Why? Because not only does it keep you warm when you are out and about, but it leaves your arms free, and lets you show off more of your perfectly put-together ‘fit than the average coat. If you don’t already have one, it’s time to change that. Just avoid anything too puffy unless the Michelin man is your style icon, of course!
2. Classic White Tee
Classic white tees are classic for a reason, They go well with anything from jeans to joggers and even chinos, and you can pull them on in an instant. If they are crisp and clean, and not gungy and grey, there is no way you will not look good in one, especially if you hit the gym once in a while – it is a new year, after all!
3. Smart Joggers
Gone are the days when joggers were just for lounging around doing nothing much at home or working out in the gym. These days, you can get joggers that are every bit as smart and stylish as formal trousers, in their own way, which means you can pull them on and go out to the pub in them no problem.
4. Denim Jacket
The denim jacket is a timeless piece that screams casual cool whenever you pull it on. It’s versatile, durable, and gets better with age, so the sooner you invest in one, the better.
Chinos are something you should have in abundance when you are building your casual wardrobe. Why? Because they hit that perfect middle ground between jeans and joggers. They’re comfy, but they also look a bit more dressed up. Choose a tailored pair in a few colours and you will always have something to go to when jeans and joggers just won’t do.
6. Minimalist Sneakers
A pair of clean, minimalist sneakers can elevate any casual outfit. That’s all.
7. Button-Down Shirts in Fun Prints
Looking to inject some personality into your wardrobe? Then you really can’t go wrong with button-down shirts in fun prints. Sure, they’re not for everyone, but if you like them, it’s an easy way to add some flair without going overboard. Think subtle, not a Hawaiian shirt that’s loud enough to be heard.
8. The Perfect Pair of Jeans
Jeans are great with anything (well almost). So, make an effort to find the right fit for your build, and you’ve got a loyal companion for life. Remember, trends come and go, but a classic cut is forever.
You know you are going to look good no matter what 2024 throws at you when you have these 8 pieces in your wardrobe, so get out there and know them dead!
