Hi, Donny Galella the stylist here. When we go shopping for clothes, we can sometimes feel overwhelmed with all the choices and we can miss out on finding some great pieces.
Never fear, I have put together a list of my favourite items right now. Many of these items can be mixed and matched together, providing you with loads of cool outfit combinations.
One of the biggest trends for mens style right now is 'Nautical' - all things navy, white with a dash of red.
Here are my top picks:
White shirt with trim detail
Here is a pic I took of a friend wearing it, I love the stripe detail that runs along the button panel. Simply pair with some navy or beige shorts or chinos, you can't go wrong with a white button down shirt. Every man should have one in his wardrobe.
Shirt $39 EVERY DAY
Navy and white print shorts
You may have noticed print shorts are everywhere at the moment, these feature a cool geometric print in a classic colour palette of navy and white. They make a statement but are not overly out there, in fact they look great with the white shirt I just mentioned or even the $15 australian cotton tee.
Shorts $29 EVERY DAY
Indigo shirt with detail
Another must have is a nice denim or indigo shirt, this one also features a red and white stripe that runs down the button panel. I really love nice details on garments. A cool shirt to wear with shorts, jeans or chinos. Leave a button or 2 undone, so everyone can admire the feature detail of the shirt.
Shirt $35 EVERY DAY
Light red blazer
This light weight blazer will ensure you look the goods this summer, wear it over a navy stripe t-shirt or crisp white shirt (maybe the one mentioned in point 1) and pair back with navy chinos or beige chinos. It is light weight so perfect to wear for many months of the year. It even has lining in the top pocket that you can flip out and wear as a pocket square, giving you instant extra style points.
Blazer $89 EVERY DAY
Slim cut stripe polo top
Navy and white stripes are always a good idea. For day pair this with some navy shorts and for night, dress it up with navy skinny chino pants. Made from a really nice cotton and cut slim.
Polo top $35 EVERY DAY
White canvas shoe - $15
These are a real style steal, which will pretty much go with all the above mentioned items. If budget allows you could also splurge on a pair of all leather Geoffrey Beene style.
Canvas shoe $15 EVERY DAY
Navy leather boat shoe $69
Boat shoes are trending right now, a cool style that can be worn casually or dressed up - with shorts, jeans or pants. The white stitching and soul add that nautical touch.
