5 Essentials for Guys in 2019
We're only a few days away from a new year, and with that comes the new year resolutions that we never stick to. For as long as 2018 has been (yeah, we actually had a Winter Olympics this year), it's time to get ready for 2019. I can't help with every new year resolution, however, if one thing you want to do in 2019 is to up your style game, keep on reading for some essentials you'll need in your closet to look your best next year.
Here are 5 closet staples you need for the last year of this decade:
Plain White Tee
A classic. Sometimes we can take for granted the classics, but it's always good to go back to them to set you apart from the crowd. However, remember that white shirts can get discolored and grungy quick without proper care. Even with proper care, it's good to get a few new tees every once in a while. Check out the Chase Tee with a chest pocket here.
Solid Color Sweater
Like the plain white tee, a solid color sweater can go with anything and is easy to wear. Put a button up shirt under it and wear it to the office, put a blazer over it and go out for the night, or just wear it with blue jeans or chinos and you're good to go anywhere you please. A sweater is one of the most versatile pieces of clothing you can own. Get your new sweater here.
Henley's are one of those underrated pieces in fashion. I love a good henley shirt or sweater. For one, it can make your shoulders and collar bone look more muscular because of the way it falls on you. It's a great way to add some depth to your figure. It's also great for layering. Try it out for yourself here.
A great way to show your personality in a subtle way, the crazy sock craze has taken off in the past couple of years. It's actually become taboo when you wear plain socks in some circles. I love a good patterned sock or a pair with a cartoon character on them. Let your ankles show your personality with these.
I've heard a saying "spend money on your shoes and your mattress, because if you're not in one, you're in the other." A good boot can last you for years and can add that element to your OOTD (outfit of the day) that makes it stand out. Get your winter boots now.
Let's take it back to the grade school days when you had those large Jansport backpacks with all of your books and binders, and before you had back problems. Okay, now forget about that horrible flashback and focus on something new and better. I think backpacks and bags for men should be more of a thing. Guys, don't be afraid of carrying a backpack, they're convenient, practical, and they look great! Check out this solid black one for the next time you go to the office or Starbucks.
Happy New Year!
