2012 was the year when minimalism became really popular. Whether in art, architecture or apparel, clean cut lines and simple harmony of colours made an impression. The minimalistic look is slick and dapper and we are here to help you pick out some must-haves to go minimalistic.
White dress shirt – A timeless classic. You will definitely feel good about yourself when you wear one of these. A classic white shirt is the best thing a man can have in his wardrobe and it can be worn with almost anything. You are going to end up wearing this more often than not, so invest in a shirt of the highest quality.

Navy blue blazer – The navy blue blazer is your perfect ‘get out of jail’ pass when you can’t think of what to wear to a party. This blazer looks best with a checked shirt and can be teamed with grey or khaki coloured trousers or if it’s a more casual event, then team it up with a fitted v-neck t-shirt and dark jeans.

Chinos – When buying chinos, it’s important that they fit you perfectly. Get a pair of straight fit chinos and team it with a shirt and blazer. For a summer’s day out, wear it with a stripped t-shirt or a linen shirt and to finish it off wear a pair of comfortable sneakers or loafers.

V neck sweater – Next time the weather turns cold, get rid of the turtleneck sweaters and invest in a cotton v-neck sweater. The fit is very important so don’t buy anything that is bulgy. For an understated yet stylish look, pair it with a white shirt and beige coloured trousers.

Gray suit – We have all admired Barney Stinson and the way he looked so at ease in a suit. A well tailored gray suit makes you stand out amongst the crowd and has a great visual appeal. The thing about a gray suit is that it is doesn’t look too formal. You can wear it to the business meeting, a wedding, an evening out at the new lounge…the possibilities are endless.
