The most well-dressed men are not always those who wear flashy clothing in the latest fashions rather, they are the men who pay attention to detail. Yup, that’s the secret to dressing well for both men and women actually. For men, no flash needed, just a few pieces that speak to your character and interests. Here are a few classic pieces, on which you can put your own spin, that will help you join the ranks of well-dressed men.
The jacket is one of the strongest voices of an ensemble. You can decide to purchase a jacket that embodies the look that best speaks to your personality. This jacket from All Saints Spitafields Birdik Jacket for $295 elegantly straddles a country and an urban look.

The dress shirt in no way has to be stuffy or conservative. Case in point, its loud and colorful Hawaiian cousin. And we can’t forget its warm cousin whose company is preferred by lumberjacks worldwide. Here, we opted to show you a lightly striped button-down Hancock shirt from J Crew for $64.50.

We know it’s important to layer as we transition from summer to fall. This merino sweater comes in classic solid colors from Brooks Brothers for $98. It’ll keep you temperate and will quickly become a staple in your fall and winter wardrobe.

You have your choice of when choosing pants—chinos, wool pants, corduroys—though here, we’ve opted to share a dark wash pair of jeans in a relaxed fit from H&M for $40 with you. If you still haven’t switched over to a dark pair of blue jeans, or if you’re looking to get another pair of jeans, here is our suggestion to you. Jeans aren’t going out of style any time soon and neither is the dark wash.

Coming in close second, the most important part of a fall wardrobe is the shoes. Shoes are the perfect way to inject a bit of personality into an outfit. My husband is a fun guy, but you wouldn’t know this about him by looking at his bald head and buttoned up way of dressing. Then you look down and notice his orange sneakers, which beg the question, is this guy crazy, fun or a combination of both? I’m still trying to figure out the answer to that question myself. Needless to say, the shoes say a little something about his jokester of a personality. You don’t have to go down the route of orange sneakers though. A pair of checkered Chuck Taylors from the Tannery for $60.00 will add cool factor to your outfit.

Socks are an important part of an outfit too. They, like an orange pair of sneakers can speak of your more quirky side. Try to push yourself out of your comfort zone of wearing black, brown or grey socks. Try a pair of Happy Socks for $12 from Uncle Pete’s.
