Basic things with a casual look
Hello dear friends,
Casual wear is relaxed, with the right amount of elegance and laid back and suited for everyday use. Casual clothes typically blend personal comfort and individuality – since you have to mix and match different garments to create your unique look. You can, quite literally, wear what you want. If there are no strict rules and few limits, there still are style guidelines for Casual clothes worn outside of the privacy of your home, however. Whether you choose to keep it simple or are feeling a little adventurous, Casual can be interpreted slightly differently depending on the situation and venue. This leaves you with the difficult task of figuring out what to wear to find the sweet spot between overdressed and underdressed. The Casual style is very much influenced by trends, from high street to high end.
If you want to project a more polished appearance, opt for a quality pair of jeans in straight-leg styles and a dark wash. For a more laid-back, off-duty look, go for cuts in lighter hues.
Inherently casual, T-shirts are an essential part of any man’s basic wardrobe. The humble T-shirt is easy to wear, subtly stylish and as versatile as it gets – it can be worn with anything, even dressed-up tailoring. For your T-shirt, the rule is to keep it simple. Opt for classic crew-neck cotton T-shirts in plain colours. White, navy, black and grey are good starting points.
Casual long- or short-sleeved shirts are essential when you want to look a little sharper. For a more relaxed look, you can unbutton and roll the cuffs. A white classic shirt is a foundation.
For a ‘classic’ look, wear white sneakers that can be worn with virtually every style – go for leather if you want a more polished look. Don’t limit yourself to sneaker only, however. There are many other casual footwear alternatives such as desert boots and casual brown shoes.
Accessories are perfect to add a touch of personality to your casual outfit and enhance your overall look. You can stay consistent with accessories that will support your look or go completely in the opposite direction to create your own unique style. Think a high-end watch with your most casual outfit or a dressed down belt with your premium denim or great cap or hat. I love accessories.
