9 Essential Items For A Minimalistic Wardrobe

We all want a minimalistic wardrobe that also looks amazing. So here’s a list of 9 must-have items that are basic yet sophisticated. You can wear them to many places and occasions, ranging from a casual weekend brunch to a first date.

Brown Boots

Every man should have a pair of good quality brown boots in his minimalistic wardrobe. You can pair them with slim chinos for a refined look or with jeans for a casual look. With a good pair of shoes, you can get away with having a pair of dress shoes in most occasions.

Oxford Shirt

We have so many button-down shirts in our wardrobe, but we wear only one or two. Instead of buying so many shirts and wasting your money, go minimalistic and buy only one or two good, versatile ones that you can wear with many different outfits. A classic blue oxford shirt will get that job done for you. In addition to that, you should own a basic white button-down shirt as well.

Gray Chinos

Chinos are versatile as you can wear them to a trendy nightclub, a high-end restaurant or your regular desk job. So add a well-fitting pair of gray good-looking chinos in your new minimalistic wardrobe. We recommend the Commission pant by Lululemon as they don’t get wrinkled and aren’t too stretchy.

Bomber Jacket

Bomber jackets can work well both as a highly casual piece and a slightly formal one, making it perfect for a minimalistic wardrobe. The best-selling colors are black, navy, tan and green. Get yours from Zara for $50 each, which is very inexpensive if you see how high quality their jackets are.


As long as you don’t have a dress code to follow, you can wear joggers. You can wear them when you’re traveling, chilling with friends, at the gym or even grabbing a quick bite to eat at most restaurants. A minimalistic wardrobe calls for versatile pieces and joggers are exactly what we want. We recommend Lululemon for this. It won’t be cheap, but the joggers will look great, feel amazing and last a lifetime even if you use them heavily.

White Leather Sneakers

White leather sneakers look good and refined with just about everything, from jeans and joggers to even shorts. If you need something highly durable in your minimalistic wardrobe, go for the ones made by Greats.

Quick Dry Shirt

This is important for someone who travels a lot or tends to be close to water normally. To go minimalistic, you need a T-shirt that can be worn several times without you having to wash it. Go for a Lululemon “Metal Vent” T-shirt as it is also smell resistant. That makes it perfect for working out as well. Also, while it can’t be worn at formal occasions, it looks good enough as an everyday shirt.

Dark Jeans

A minimalistic wardrobe calls for fewer but hard-wearing items. We recommend you to own one pair of jeans at a time and replace them when they are worn out. Make sure you get a darker pair of jeans as they much more versatile than any other wash. They will look amazing with every outfit you wear them with. For this, we recommend Levi’s because you’ll a huge variety of styles and fits there.

White T-Shirt

The best thing about a well-fitting white T-shirt is that it looks amazing under any jacket you wear. Whether you’re wearing a bomber jacket or a pea coat, your T-shirt will make all your minimalistic outfits stand out. There are so many different neck styles and lengths these, but we recommend you to stick with something simple like a J Crew shirt.
