The key to creating a practical and stylish travel wardrobe for men is to start with a few basic pieces. This travel capsule wardrobe concept will help you to establish an easy-to-wear style that suits your everyday lifestyle, wherever that might take you. Once you have these staples in place, you can start to add other timeless or on-trend pieces to your collection in an easier and more logical way.
Here is a short list of things that are essentials for a man’s travel wardrobe. Believe us when we say that all this, at one time or another, will be useful to you and you will be glad you invested in these timeless style staples.
It is very important that everyone has at least one nice suit in their wardrobe. Even if you do not have to wear suits in your daily life, it is always important and useful to have elegant clothes for when the occasion calls. However, make sure that the suit looks good, fits you well and makes you feel as comfortable as possible in it. It is good to choose a more neutral colour - grey, black or dark blue are good choices.
It is good to have a pair of smart, official shoes for when the dress code is formal or casual-formal. If you have just one good pair, it is advisable to choose brown or black in terms of colour. Nice shoes are a wonderful addition to your overall look. Do not be afraid to combine them with casual attire, such as jeans and a sports jacket, you don’t have to keep them just for suits.
A Good Bag
If you’re going to put the effort into finding quality clothing and other timeless pieces then it’s important that you have a bag of some sort to carry around your daily necessities. It’s pointless going to all of that trouble to find smart trousers, a great jacket or fine-fitting jeans and then ruining their silhouette by stuffing the pockets with your phone, wallet, keys and whatever else you need. You don’t need to have an extensive collection of bags. A practical rucksack or satchel bag is all you need, as and when you require it. They’re also handy to have for when you travel or go on business trips!
Yes, we know you can check your phone or tablet at any time. However, a good watch speaks volumes about your taste, as well as showcasing your style preferences. A good watch can be considered as the grandfather of accessories. Again, this is similar to investing in a quality belt – buy it once and it will last you forever (or for at least many years)!
A Timeless Belt
Invest in a timeless leather belt and it will last you for years! Not only is a belt a functional wardrobe staple, it also helps to elevate an outfit, making your overall look appear smarter and more formal. In some situations, a suit or business attire looks far better put- together when worn with a belt.
