Most people, most of the time judge you by what you’re wearing, and if you care about what people think, you should care about what you wear. Life doesn’t get much simpler than that.
Hope you guys are having a great weekend :-), I’d like for us to go back to the Basics today, the little things that shouldn’t go wrong, because like many other things, when you don’t get your basics right, you never really get the real thing right.
Yeah it’s true that fashion is dynamic. Very at that. It allows for a whole lot of creativity, trying new things, modifying old things and the like but then again, it’s someone that’s good with the rules that can break them like a Pro.
The first thing I’d like to draw your attention to is FITTING. There’s no use buying the most expensive tuxedo in the galaxy and then you wear it and it looks like someone put you in a sack, Lol that’s just wrong. So whatever you’re making, buying, or wearing, make sure it fits properly. Fit is King.
Black, White, Brown, Grey, Navy Blue. These COLOURS are the essentials. If you want to start building your wardrobe, start with those colours. They are your must – have. They’ll save you time and time again and they give you more freedom with your details. Now im not saying it’s not alright to have diverse colours, Lol no! I for one loves colours but these are just the basics, Ill probably dedicate a post to just colours later on.
DETAILS make the outfit and by details here I mean accessories, shoes, hats and the like. What’s specialabout details is that its not just having them that matters but actually using them properly. I’d write about a number of them and How best to use them.
I don’t joke with my shoes! Lol and I’m sure you don’t either. Shoes can be that detail that’ll just nail your outfit, from casual shoes to formal shoes, Black and Brown for starters, and there are different types of shoes but we won’t be going into the details just yet but good shoes are a slaying essential.
It’s basic and a safe move to match your shoes with your belt so yeah, do that and you’re safe! There are exceptions yeah but hey, this post is on basics :-p
Also wrist accessories like watches and bracelets are very key! Though some more important than others, you should have a wrist watch on before you wear a bracelet. It’s also important to know that there should be a connection between this things, I mean if your wrist watch is gold, the metal on your belt, or your tie clip, or your cuff links shouldn’t be silver. You’re not the Olympics. If you wanna do gold, do gold. If otherwise be thorough with it. Yeah it Might seem like a it’s no big deal but trust me, it is.
If you’re wearing a blazer, pocket squares would do you a lot of good. There are some not so essential details also, the likes of collar tips and sleeve garners but if you have them, use them.
Hatssss! I looove hats! Lol you must have noticed that by now. It’s always cool to have at least a Hat in your wardrobe, could be a Fedora or a boater hard or a pork pie Hat, hats are badass.
Always pay attention to the most insignificant of things, even your socks is part of your outfit. I have my reasons which I’d definitely share with you guys later on.
Most people forget to talk about your COLOGNE! It’s not a piece of clothing nor an accessory, true that, but you sure haven’t done justice if you look dressed to the very last detail but you don’t smell nice, Naah! So you should have a very nice and manly Cologne to go with your outfit. It does give confidence as well.
I’m sure there’s a lot of things you’d have had me talk more about, I will, not just in this post. This post is just to remind us of the basics we shouldn’t get wrong, subsequently I’d talk more know them. 🙂
Pull yourself together. Always. Everywhere. Every occassion has minimum standards. Meet them. Surpass them. Have a lovely weekend guys. Feel free to drop your comments , I appreciate every single one of them.
