Romeo's World

When it comes to men’s fashion, layering is the ultimate tool. If you look at the world’s biggest runways and most prestigious men’s fashion shoots, almost every man is rocking a layered outfit and that’s because it’s one of the easiest ways to instantly upgrade any look. While some may possess the inherent style and wherewithal to throw together an outfit and channel their inner David Beckham, there are some of us that are slightly more stylistically challenged. This post is for those who need a few go-to outfits to help achieve that effortlessly layered look. With just a few tricks in your arsenal, you can make your closet not only far more versatile by creating multiple looks from a few key staples, but you can instantly go from casual street style to business professional with just a few tweaks. 

Dress Up a Crew Neck: A Crew Neck with a Button-Up

When opting for a sharper look, this is your ultimate go-to combination. Sharp enough for the office (or Zoom call), polished enough for a special night out, and cool enough to hit up the bar with friends, this outfit will instantly up your style game. Opt for a contrasting, lighter button-up with a solid sweater to achieve a perfectly balanced look. If you want to take the look into a casual yet still sharp after-work affair, neatly roll the sleeves of the button-down over the cuffs of the sweater so that the contrasting color or pattern of the shirt cuff is visible. If you want an even more casual look, just bunch the sweater sleeves up a bit to show off the cuff of the shirt. Keep the look smart by ensuring both pieces fit perfectly so the look isn’t frumpy or layered. 

Dress Down a Crew or V-Neck: A Crew or V-Neck Sweater & Your Favorite Tee 

For the perfect street-savvy look, pair your favorite crew neck or v-neck sweater with a casual tee shirt and your favorite pants. Keep it clean and polished by opting for layers in the same color family or always choose a white base layer. Deep tones and bright colors are complemented by white and ensures that your layers aren’t clashing and fighting for attention. 

Dress Up a Cardigan: A V-Cardigan & A Button-Up

Perfect for smart-casual occasions, such as a day in the office, a business lunch, or a cocktail party, a fitted cardigan pairs beautifully over a button-up shirt, trousers, and your favorite dress shoes. Always remember to mindfully pair your color combinations so the pieces complement each other rather than clash and fight for attention. Explore some of our favorite color combinations in our previous blog post here

Dress Down a Cardigan: A V-Cardigan & Your Favorite Tee

The best aspect of the cardigan is it can make you look relaxed, casual, and still polished on the weekends. And with a wide array of colors (from toned-down neutrals to bold, bright colors), you can choose a cardigan that best fits your own personal style and complements your existing wardrobe. Pair your color of choice with a graphic tee, a pair of sneakers, and your favorite jeans for a cutting-edge street look. If you want something slightly more refined, opt for chinos and a solid colored, slim-fit tee. 

Dress Up a Sweater Vest: A Sweater Vest & A Classic Suit or Blazer

Soften the look of a tailored blazer or classic suit while still maintaining its style and formality by swapping out the usual waistcoat for a sweater vest. Far more comfortable and functional, a soft merino wool sweater vest will keep you warmer during the winter months and will provide any suit with a more modern and cozy aesthetic. Just remember to select a fitted piece, so your suit fits perfectly and you avoid looking too bulky.

Whether you’re going for casual street style or a polished business look, the perfect outfit can not only elevate your appearance but can take your confidence and attitude to new heights. In addition to topping off your look with accessories like an amazing scarfbeanie, or a bold watch, there’s another element to ensure that your style is complete from head-to-toe: the right cologne. Not only can the perfect scent give you a boat of confidence, but there’s something primitive about our attraction to the right scent. Some colognes are capable of grabbing our attention and luring us in. The right scent can make a statement, whether you prefer warm, woodsy scents, brighter citrus, or clean fragrances. You may have your tried and true go-to brand, but here are some of our favorite colognes if you’re looking for something new to add to your everyday routine: 

Creed Aventus

Perhaps the most iconic of all perfume houses, The House of Creed was born in 1760 when it was commissioned to provide the English Court with custom-tailored clothing, scented leather gloves, and fragrances. The first bottle was made in 1781 when James Creed was asked by King George III to bottle a fragrance after the monarch was enamored with a pair of scented riding gloves. Since then, the brand has represented the pinnacle of luxury scents, with Creed Aventus being the brand’s most celebrated and sought after cologne. ScentHacks.com stated, “...Creed Aventus smells like a masterpiece that can shine with its perfectly blended scent DNA and a strong presence and performance. This scent has really earned its rating of 10/10. It’s not only the best Creed fragrance out there, it’s the best luxury scent you can get period.” The scent features notes of Corsican blackcurrant, Italian bergamot, French apple, and royal pineapple, while birch and patchouli give a smoky finish.

Bleu de Chanel

For those seeking a woodsy scent, Chanel’s Bleu de Chanel cologne is a must-have addition to their arsenal. A distinctly masculine scent, it melds the scents of amber dry cedar, incense, ginger to provide an aromatic woody scent, with bright notes of grapefruit. Experts say that as the user wears it, mint notes and spicy pink pepper undertones are also released, creating a potently addictive scent. Created by Jacques Polge for Chanel in 2010, it has quickly become one of the brand’s best-selling fragrances.

Maison Martin Margiela’s Replica Jazz Club

The right scent can transport you to places, memories, and moments in time. For a sensory trip to a classic jazz club, pick up Maison Martin Margiela’s Replica Jazz Club, which immortalizes the ambiance of a Brooklyn jazz club with notes of musk, vanilla, tonka bean, and vetiver. Tobacco notes evoke the cozy atmosphere and warm scents of hand-crafted cocktails and smoking cigars. If this sounds a little too left-field, just trust us that it smells really, really, really good (and the simple bottle is such a cool design).

Bvlgari Le Gemme

The crown jewel of Bvlgari’s fragrance line, the Le Gemme collection is the brand’s most luxurious collection of curated scents. Created by Master Perfumers Alberto Morillas and Jacques Cavallier, the line was inspired by raw stones and materials. According to Cavallier, he wanted to “take care of the raw materials, and try to customize each one per fragrance. That means, as they are full of natural raw materials, they are more simple. It’s about expressing a more lateral sensuality or masculinity, which makes them more sophisticated.” While the entire collection is amazing, we love the Le Gemme Ambero Eau De Parfum with earth vetiver root and spicy ginger for a warm, woody scent. For a richer, muskier scent opt for the Le Gemme Masculine Falkar Eau De Parfum which features tanned leather notes and agarwood.
