Failsafe Outfits You Can Put Together In Seconds
They say time waits for no man. And as any man who’s slept through five morning alarms and faced the near-impossible challenge of finding something appropriate to wear in 30 seconds will tell you, they’re not wrong.
So, when trying to pull together a Failsafe Outfit, you have to make sure you chill, check your calendar, and stick to the basics.
For the corporate office; bring your A-game with a navy or blue single-breasted suit, a crisp white shirt, brown brogues or Derbies and a tonal tie in a slightly lighter shade of blue. Job done.
For The Business-Casual Office, It pays to play business-casual safe with a combination that leans smart-casual but lets you feel comfortable. Try a white Oxford shirt underneath a neutral jumper in merino or cashmere, some dark- or grey-colored chinos and a pair of leather loafers for a look that’s professional.
For The Weekend, Steer right with something casual, but not careless – like a classic white crew-neck T-shirt and selvedge jeans. This Failsafe Outfit seems Weather dependent, you could stop here or throw over a lightweight bomber in the evening or a beige camel jacket when the cold really bites.
For A Night Out, Make it easy with head-to-toe monochrome. A grey T-shirt (or black if you’re worried about sweat/swill stains) worn with slim jeans is a failsafe outfit that works everywhere. Cap off with a pair of black Chelsea boots to bring this look’s rock aesthetic to its natural conclusion and throw on a black leather biker or smart bomber jacket for the journey to and from home.
