Summers bring out the best in men’s dressing and the essence of it is minimalism. As the heat is soaring, there is a dip in price tags everywhere, thanks to those summer sales.But, do you really need to invest in fresh upgrade to get through the season? With just 15 items in your wardrobe, you can curate for yourself sharp looks that can last at least a week. Read on to know the perfect ingredients for a dapper week.

Polo/roundneck t-shirts – 2

Opting for two t-shirts in subtle shades can last you at least two casual days. Style them with a light-coloured blazer or jacket and a light pair of trousers to get your day going. Try your hand at solids and stripes for a sailor-style mood.

Neck ties – 2

For formal days, neckties can be saviours. Instead of going all out on quirky patterns or formal prints on the tie, balance your picks to reflect your style the best. Experiment with one flat-bottomed tie for a party weekend while you pick the classic V for a groomed impression.

Dress shirts – 3

A wardrobe staple for all men, formal shirts or dress shirts can work wonders with the right shade of trousers and a light jacket. Since summer rules out all the dark solids, make your pick from light greys, blues or off-whites.

Pair of trousers – 3

While beige pants are eternally summer-friendly, go versatile with off-whites, greys and browns. If you are someone who has a casual, sporty vibe going, replace a pair with good quality ice-blue or white denims.

Pair of shoes – 2

The options of shoes are endless. Make sure you have a pair of brown office shoes, and a semi-formal boots in your wardrobe that complement every trouser-shirt combination in your summer collection.

Jacket – 1


As mentioned earlier, go for lighter, pastel shades to beat the heat. While layering adds style, picking the wrong colour can make the otherwise dapper outfit look incomplete.


Apart from these 13 items, get a good quality belt and add a pair of shades to frame your face.
