Having a wardrobe that conveys luxe doesn’t have break the bank. I’m a big believer in looking your best, but spending thousands on an outfit isn’t an option… yet! With winter upon us, what pieces will help you gain the luxe look?
When the temperature starts to drop, a sweater is usually the first piece we reach for to keep us warm. Banana Republic has some great quality sweaters to choose from, whether it’s merino wool or a silk-cashmere blend they have you covered. For my look, I choose a camel color sweater, because it is a neutral palette that is good for daytime or nighttime. I suggest sticking to a neutral color (black, gray, camel, etc.), since they give off a luxe appearance.
Once you’ve picked your sweater, pick the perfect coat to match. Now, coats might cost you a pretty penny, but picking the right one will make it a great investment. Again, I suggest picking a neutral palette that way you’re able to mix it with other items in your wardrobe. For my look, I picked a charcoal colored wool blend topcoat. A topcoat is the perfect coat for a luxe appearance, because you can wear it to the office and hang it over your shoulders for a night out.
Finally, the right shoes and pants are needed to complete the look. In the modern age a fitted look on a man equals clean, so be sure to pick a pair of pants that aren’t baggy. I gave my luxe look some edge by pairing it with black skinny jeans. They give my look a casual touch without diminishing the luxe appearance. If skinny jeans aren’t your cup of tea, try a pair of slim jeans or chinos. Now the shoe is just as important as the clothing you wear. A derby shoe, like the one I’m wearing can add the final touch of luxe to your look. Sneakers and boots are nice, but a dressy shoe is classic luxury.
Looking luxurious doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money. Buying the right pieces will help you gain the luxe look for winter, plus confidence doesn’t hurt either.
Will you be rocking the luxe look this winter?
