It can sometimes be a tough task figuring out how to stock your wardrobe with stylish fashion accessories. Curating the perfect collection with items you’ll actually wear takes time, money, and effort. And at any given moment, there is a high chance you might not have either of those things to give.
You don’t have to fret as it’s your lucky day. We have compiled a list of basic stylish essentials (shirts, pants, suits, and shoes included) that you don’t have to break the bank to get and which can help set the foundation for a successful wardrobe.

The overcoat is one fashion item you want to have in your wardrobe. It can be an essential item when the temperatures are colder. From work to date night, it dresses up any outfit. You can opt for a charcoal-blue colour to help update a hitherto classic style so it’s a bit more modern.
Casual Button Down
You can never go wrong with a button down shirt. On weekends and casual Fridays when you need to be a bit more dressy and a routine silk shirt is too fancy, a polka-dot one that comes with a special washed fabric will do just the trick. It’s just as comfortable as you think.
Formal Button Down
On the days when you need to appear in a more formal attire, a blue dress shirt will match with any blazer, pair of slacks, or tie you might already have.
Crew Neck Sweater
Cashmere, merino wool, cotton, cable knit, or otherwise, a crew neck sweater pairs well with everything. Whether you slip it on over a button down shirt or wear it solo. One with a high quality blend will last through the seasons.
A white tee will go with everything, and if you don’t own one, you are definitely sleeping. You can go for one that features a stylish V-neck. You will feel so comfortable in it that you won’t even know you’re wearing it.
Lace-Up Dress Shoes
This is something you want to own because no ensemble with jeans, a button down, or suit is complete without them. They go just as well with your dinner-out slacks as they do your black-tie wedding tux.
Dark Wash Jeans
Dress them up, dress them down, rock them on the weekends with a white tee, or if your workplace is more casual, with a button down and fancy wing tips. A pair of dark wash jeans is one of the most important utility pieces you need in your wardrobe.
If you don’t already own one, this is one thing you really want to add. Suit up with confidence as the dark Suit is designed for the modern man. Some features a double-button, double-vent jacket that has an interior passport pocket, plus a little extra stretch for more comfort.
The charcoal colour is dark enough for formal occasions that it could also pass as black. Just get an updated one that won’t make you feel like you’re wearing your dad’s suit.
A slim, refined line of black belt can add a contemporary touch to an otherwise traditional and sometimes boring wardrobe staple. Go for one with genuine leather, it’ll work with any and all trousers in your dresser and last through it all, too.
Thick, bulky neckwear belongs in the past and definitely not in your wardrobe. Ditch your wide tie and pick up a Skinny one. It’s suitable for everyday use, plus events like parties and weddings.
Want to wear sneakers without having people know you’re wearing them? Then go for a stylish, comfortable, and light suede oxford kicks. It is a perfect option that you can rock absolutely anywhere.
