2021 has been an amazing year for men’s fashion and it’s only going to get better and grow stronger. That can only be enjoyed if you are having a complete wardrobe which means making sure you have all the essentials covered.
Men’s fashion is not as basic as people think no matter what your style is. There are multiple ways of styling yourself, so you’re never caught wearing the same thing over and over. Trends come and go but some fashion staples are timeless and very valuable for all seasons.
Here is a list of fashion staples for a Ghanaian man’s closet for y’all to know what is missing in your closet.
1. A Well-Tailored Full Suit That Fits
The best suits are those that make you look stylish, fits well and are comfortable to wear. A well-tailored suit can be worn for special occasions. You should get one in navy or grey colour if you are not a big fan of suits.
2. White Long Sleeves Shirts
A white long sleeve shirt pairs well with everything from trousers, jeans to shorts. It also matches well with any colour and can be dressed semi-formally or even for a very formal setting. Get yourself a couple of white long sleeve shirts and save yourself from stress.
A T-shirt can be paired with virtually any other piece of clothing as it is incredibly versatile. Find one that fits and hugs the body, not a second skin. Don’t limit yourself when it comes to colours, go wild. Happy styling.
4. Anything Ntoma
Ntoma is also known as African print and it could be in a form of trousers, shorts, shirts or even a jacket. All that counts is how you style them to suit the occasion. Find that perfect ntoma to look and feel like the true African king you are. Thank me later.
5. A Blazer or A Jacket
The difference between a blazer and a jacket is a discussion for another day. They are casual chic, ideal to match jeans and elegant shoes, as well as tailored shirts and elegant trousers. Perfect for all seasons and that casual lunch date you have been looking forward to.
6. Chino Trousers
Chino trousers are a good alternative to jeans and suit trousers. They are ideal for all seasons and perfect for all occasions. There are endless options of what you can wear chino trousers with, from t-shirts to jackets or blazers. Pick Beige colours because they match well with other colours.
7. Jeans Trousers
Jeans are versatile and cool to dress up. All you have to do is look for a pair with just the right amount of stretch to stay comfortable all day long because you’ll be wearing them a lot. Black jeans or dark blue jeans always saves the day.

Shorts can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion and there are a variety of colours, patterns and prints. All that matters is that you pick the ones you feel comfortable wearing. Now grab your favourite T-shirt for the ultimate smart and casual look.
