While finding the right clothes is a challenge, though, it's an incredibly fun one. Whether you want casual, professional, or athletic clothing or whether you want some new accessories, there's a great buy out there for you.

Every man wants to add new casual and business casual outfits to their wardrobe. Whether you're going to be having a night out with the boys or want to look great for a first date, casual wardrobe items are essential. Read on to learn some of the best casual trends that you're going to want to know going into the new decade!

Long-Sleeved Shirts

Going into 2020, you're going to need some long-sleeved shirts. This isn't just because it's cold out, but also because they're going to be a huge fashion trend come next year. You can wear them basically anywhere since they're so versatile! Whether at work or getting ready for a night out, long-sleeved shirts are an absolute necessity.

There are so many styles you can get these outfits in that you're sure to have an awesome time experimenting with new styles, too. Turtlenecks and V-neck shirts are great, and there are so many other types of shirts to try as well. It's also really fun to try new patterns and styles. Get long-sleeved shirts in all your favorite colors, and remember that plaid is really in style as we start the new decade!

Casual Blazers

Remember when we said that long-sleeved shirts are good for wearing to work? Well, it's true, but you're going to need to spice things up a little bit first. In a traditional office environment, you can usually get away with wearing an appropriate long-sleeved shirt as long as you wear a casual blazer over it.

In 2020, slim-fit blazers are bound to be all the rage. These are especially awesome when they're plaid (see: a pattern that's all the rage) and made from comfortable wool.

Khakis and Cargo Pants

Maybe they're not ideal for business situations (not even maybe- just don't try it), khakis and cargo pants are the most styling casual pants on the market today. Baggy and comfortable, they allow for freedom of movement while still looking great. They also have a lot of pockets, meaning that you can carry anything around that you think you may need.

These pants are ideal for a day out hunting or golfing. They're also great for hitting the town with friends or a significant other, so you definitely need a pair for your 2020 wardrobe!

When you think of the Roaring 20s from last century, you probably think of men like Jay Gatsby- dashing, debonair, dapper. Well, the 20s of this century are bound to be the same insofar as men will want to put on their best-pressed suits when headed to work or parties. Read on to learn about some of the best professional and formal outfits on the market today!

Business Casual

While there's a lot of debate about what business casual actually means, everyone can agree that it's essential to any man's wardrobe. Generally, you're going to want to don a pair of nice pants, a collared shirt, and a blazer for business casual situations. Ties are likely too much for these situations, though they are a great addition if you choose not to wear a blazer.

In the fun and casual environment of 2020, you're going to need to get yourself a couple of nice blazers to go with those casual turtlenecks that make great first date outfits. They're perfect for showing the world that you care about your appearance and, while being fun, have a serious side as well.

Three-Piece Suits

For more formal situations- the ones in which you need to look your best- three-piece suits are still en vogue. These classics never go out of style. They come in blue and navy, which are both great colors for standing out while still appearing professional and businesslike. 

Just because you're looking formal doesn't mean that you can't also have fun peacocking. Styles like plaid are bound to be huge in 2020, especially during the winter, so you'll definitely want to add some plaid three-pieces to your wardrobe!

It's All in the Shoes

Of course, shoes are also an absolute necessity when putting together a formal outfit. Dress shoes are a must, and you need to buy them in multiple colors- generally black, brown, and coffee- in order to make sure that they go with anything you may choose to wear. If you like white pants, you're going to need white dress shoes, too- no exceptions. You'll look like a penguin otherwise!

Make sure that your shoes also match your belt and other accessories that you may be carrying around. We're going to get into those accessories momentarily, but remember to keep the shoes you love on your mind when shopping for them as well.

The stereotype that sports and fashion don't go together is 100% false- in fact, you're going to need to spend some time putting together a great wardrobe before getting active. Read on to learn how to do this with some of the best trends in athletic clothing for men as we head into 2020.

Compression Outfits

Compression outfits consist of multiple garments- usually a shirt and pants as well as compression socks- that fit tightly around the skin. Because of the airy fabric, they allow for a lot of movement. They also are insulated so they hold onto body warmth, making them perfect for outdoor activity in the wintertime. In the summer, they let you feel the breeze because of their thin fabric while still avoiding bug bites!

Loose Shorts

Another type of athletic outfit that finds appeal in being airy are loose shorts. These are perfect for jogging in as well as for playing sports like basketball, soccer, or tennis that require a lot of running around.

In 2020, quick-dry shorts are certain to be all the rage since they, well... dry quickly. If you get wet from the rain, you won't be forced to sit in a soaking wet garment all day. They'll air out just as fast as the rainfall that hit them.

Winter Tracksuits

Winter tracksuits are the perfect outfit specifically for the colder months of 2020. Made of casual cotton, these outfits are perfect for those of us who like to go for daily jogs or long walks. They're insulated so you can go out no matter what the weather is like. Just remember to bundle up and wear a hat and gloves over your tracksuit if it's still too cold out for comfort!

Accessories provide a necessary flair to any outfit, and it's just as crucial to shop for them as it is to get the best clothes. Whether you're looking to buy a watch or a cool new tie, there are tons of affordable accessories out there for you. Read on to learn what some of them are and how to pair them with your new outfits!

Luxury Watches

Watches aren't just a functional piece of equipment used to tell time- your phone can do that. What your phone can't do, though, is show off your class, status, and taste. This has been a function of watches for centuries, ever since people in the 1750s were considered upper crust when they pulled a nice pocket watch from their waistcoats. 

Luxury watches are an absolute must-have for any man's wardrobe. Whether you want gold or silver, special functions or simple classic ones, or a beautiful face dial, there's a luxury watch out there just waiting to be paired with your favorite suit.

Ties and Belts

Neckties and belts are crucial for any professional outfit, and they're a good idea for lots of casual ones as well. These are awesome accessories because there are so many options as to what to buy! Whether you like solid colors, checks, stripes, or Victorian designs, there's an affordable necktie that you're sure to love.

Similarly, with belts, there are tons of different materials out there. Leather is common and is one of the most durable fabrics out there for belts, but there are other materials out there (like polyester) if you prefer them.

With both belts and ties, keep in mind that you're going to want to get a wide variety of them- having a tie or belt clash with your outfit (or each other) is a huge fashion don't. You need to avoid this at all costs.

High-End Wallets

A man's wallet is his trophy. It carries his money, which is a pretty important task in and of itself, but it also is a masculine way to show off the taste and sense of the wearer. While choosing a functional wallet is important, it's just as important to choose something in a color and style you like.

In 2020, snakeskin patterns are bound to maintain their popularity. We're also headed into the year of durable, waterproof fabrics with a variety of classic patterns printed on them.


In the modern age, it's impossible not to carry electronic accessories around with you. Going into the next decade, wireless electronics are essential. While not all of them can be carried with you at all times- save that for your cell phone and its sleek case!- each of them performs a fashionable function in a man's life.

Wireless mobile chargers are essential to making your phone work, and you're going to need gadgets like the wireless car cup charger while on the go!


Choosing the right clothing and accessories can be a challenge, but it's a fun one. If you look into your options, expand your wardrobe, and have a clear understanding of the decorum of the situation that you're going into, you're going to have a great time getting ready for any event. Whether you're headed on a first date with the girl (or guy) of your dreams or hopping in the car to go to a business meeting, there are a plethora of outfit varieties to choose from.
