Men Fashion: looking to build your workwear wardrobe? There are a few factors that need to be taken into account before rushing off to the stores. Go for pieces that are versatile, good quality, fit you well and are reasonably priced. Markham’s menswear range has already considered all these factors so that you’re able to build your wardrobe with a variety of items that suit your style preferences and can work all year round. Core pieces that every man should own include a suit, simple sneakers, a jacket that can be taken from smart to casual, brown shoes and shirts.
Core Clothing Colors
Styling your clothes can be tricky and you might find yourself asking questions such as, “What can I wear this pink golf shirt with?” or , “Will this statement tie work with my suit?” If you’re not one for standing out then try pairing a brightly coloured item with muted neutrals. Sticking to a colour palette and adding a subtle pop of colour with a pocket square or shoelaces always proves that less is more. A basic golf shirt in a bright colour is a perfect alternative to wearing a shirt with your suit, but keep the fit slim when wearing it with a more formal outfit. When picking out your polo at the store, opt for a shirt with sleeves that end mid-bicep and that slightly hug your arms. A shirt that’s too fitted is never a good look. Never forget that when it comes to colours like white and grey: They go with everything! Wearing key pieces such as a pair of trousers or a jacket in these colours means that you can have fun mixing and matching your workwear combinations with your classic colours acting as a base for the rest of your outfit.
If you don’t particularly enjoy wearing suits, a lightweight bomber jacket is a great alternative. Investing in a bomber in a classic colour like navy or black will allow you to mix and match your formal trousers and shirts as you please. You’ll look stylish while remaining 9-5 appropriate. When buying a bomber jacket opt for slim cuts with simple styles that will remain a classic. Simple sneakers in white are not only great for more casual outfits but when paired with a suit can help you achieve that smart-casual look. Tan brogues or lace ups on the other hand go with more formal attire that won’t necessarily work with more casual shoes. Tan shoes work well with navy, grey and denim colour clothing.
