Closet staples are workhorses that can be worn every day for different and various occasions. These are your shirts, pants, and shirts in strict shapes, clean styles, and neutral colors. And, yes, they can be a little safe in their uniformity, but that’s why they work. Here’s how to mix up your wardrobe essentials, so you don’t look like everyone else.

Have it your way with a classic striped crewneck T-shirt or a multi-colored striped shirt.

The light and cool linen shirt is perfect for summer. To amplify its refreshing feeling, pair it with shorts with prints of palm trees or geometric patterns. Don’t be afraid of bright colors. Go for a fun summer vibe.

These Kando pants are lightweight, stretchable, and sweat-proof, and that’s why men like them. Also, they’re versatile: They can anchor a casual look with a bomber jacket or complement a workplace uniform when punched up by a patterned sport coat. Look for checks, whose boldness reflect your confidence.
