Todays guestposter looks at shopping on a budget…..
Polo shirts for men and chinos for men are essential this summer
As the weather gets warmer, you’ll be thinking about reducing the number of layers and concentrating on clothes that look and feel great. Men’s fashion is a big market, so there’s plenty of choice, but if you’re short on time or shopping on a budget, there are three essential pieces you need to consider.
Trousers come first. A good quality pair of cotton traders chinos for men will see you through spring and summer and back into the colder months, giving you fantastic value for money. Jeans that are made from great denim, have thoughtful detailing and are a good fit will look fantastic at any time, and can be dressed up with an open-necked shirt, blazer and smart shoes, or dressed down with a simple t-shirt and a hoody. Jeans are affordable, easy to care for and look great, so if you haven’t bought yourself a new pair for a while, now’s the time to do it.
Owning a good range of tops is useful, but if you can only buy one thing in preparation for summer, make it polo shirts for men. These are incredibly versatile pieces and look good on any man – smartening the look but not making things too formal. You can wear yours with shorts, jeans, chinos and tailored trousers, and use it as a key layer over lightweight t-shirts and under sweaters and jackets. You can buy a 100% cotton polo shirt for a very reasonable price and, because they are available in a range of colours and styles, you’ll be able to find the perfect piece for you.
And finally, it might be time to update your knitwear. Stylish men understand that a good quality jumper or sweater will quickly become a wardrobe favourite. That’s because they are easy to wear, easy to look after and can transform your style from informal laid-back to smart casual in one step. Look for plain, lightweight, V-neck sweaters for an easy summer style.
Any man of any shape or size can’t go wrong with these three key pieces in his wardrobe. Of course, you might want to supplement with other spring/summer essentials, but this is a great way – and an affordable one – to start. With a great range of menswear on the high street and online, it’s never been easier to buy new clothing, and you’ll immediately look and feel better when you have some brand new clothes in your collection.
