Not a fan of prints and bold colours? Well, you’re in luck. Minimalistic styles are redefining dapper this season. These four bloggers show us how to ace the look.
Style To Own: The Crisp Shirt
New York-based Adam Gallagher’s shirts range from the classic white and never-go-wrong solid black to summery pieces, like the half-placket and short-sleeves ones he’s seen wearing in these pictures. Neutral shades and slim-fits, sans any prints, are key to nailing the trend. The plus point — they’re so versatile they’ll agree to accompany you to work or even for a Sunday brunch.
Style To Own: Slim-fit Chinos & Trousers
Indian blogger Usaamah Siddique’s website is titled The Dapper Label. Need we say more? Currently one of the most sought after menswear bloggers in the country, he lends an easy and understated, yet youthful, twist to classics. Earthy and pop-coloured chinos, and razor sharp trousers are his go-to styles. The fit is key to getting the look right — make it slim but not skinny. And when the vibe allows neatly fold at the ankles.
Style To Own: The Fresh Knit
Thought knits are chunky and boring? Allow UK-based blogger Joey London to switch your mind. This season’s fresh picks wake up on a Monday morning right beside a pair of sharply ironed trousers and polished shoes. Leave the Fair Isle for the weekend; if you’re taking your knit to work this winter, make it a lightweight and subtle piece.

Style To Own: The Squeaky-clean Shoes
Model, founder of Italian brand Nohow, and men’s style expert Mariano Di Vaio’s shoes are worth raiding the store for. Boots, loafers, trainers or lace-ups, they’re polished and speckless, and in refined neutrals, or of course white the current trending colour. A little tassel will add a lot more character to what already exists.
