1. Casual Topper
This is one of those pieces I’ve had for years that I kind of forgot about. I make it a point to only keep clothing that I actually wear, this one just got lost at the back of a closet somewhere.
Funny thing is, this is probably one of my most complimented knits – but like many of my favorite pieces – I found it at a discount store on a rack of stuff that nobody wanted. I was like $4 or something. It’s the type of piece that doesn’t look like much alone on the hanger, but when styled correctly can really tie a look together.
Bonus Tip: Don’t write-off a potential purchase until you’ve really considered how you could potentially style it. For example, a lot of guys wouldn’t think they could pull-off a cream henley with pink flowers, but pair it with a classic navy quilted jacket, brown check shirt and roughed-up jeans and suddenly you have a look that is masculine and handsome.
Bonus Tip II: You may have noticed that I wear this belt a lot. Just goes to show that if you find a good slim, casual brown belt, it goes with just about everything. In fact, I’m wearing it in all three looks in this post.
