New Year, New You

OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW – WARDROBE INCLUDED

 

Happy New Year from the team at Calibre - better late than never. 2016 was a blast and we can’t wait to see what 2017 has in store. When it comes to New Years’ resolutions, there’s always the few that get resurrected year in, year out. From getting lean and buff to eating clean and chasing dreams, we’re all about the positive vibes.

One thing’s for certain though – your wardrobe could use a fresh update. Dressing is a form of art and every occasion calls for a different inspiration. We’ve collated the very best to bring you this season’s edits.

RESOLUTION 1: CHASE THAT DREAM JOB – WHAT TO WEAR TO A JOB INTERVIEW

 

Whether you’ve decided this is the year to get that promotion or to start your own business and become your own boss, you’ve got to put your best foot forward.

In a professional setting, sticking to understated black, blue and greys for your job interview outfit ensures all focus is on you. Blacks give a suave sophisticated touch and is associated with the psychology of leadership whereas blues help to inject some social prowess and can indicate a strong team player. Presentation is key and first impressions really do matter. For a little injection of your personality, consider a unique tie or boldly printed socks.

When in doubt, reach for your collection of business man wardrobe staples and suit up.

RESOLUTION 2: CELEBRATE LOVE – WHAT TO WEAR TO A SUMMER WEDDING

 

It’s the season of love. With Summer upon us and Spring around the corner, you’re bound to have a wedding invite or two lined up. Whether it’s an intimate garden affair or a lavish event worthy of news coverage, we’ve handpicked a few of our favourite options to put you in the running for best dressed wedding guest.

Stay on-point with a navy and white theme, paired with tan accessories, a timeless combination. Think a crisp white shirt with a sharp navy blazer with matching pants; if it’s a more casual dress code, pair with tailored chinos or play with prints and stand out from the crowd – make it your own. Don’t forget to have your grooming down pat, so get that mop of hair and smattering of facial hair in check.

RESOLUTION 3: STRENGTHEN BONDS – WHAT TO WEAR FOR AFTERNOON DRINKS WITH THE BOYS

 

Whether you’re just kicking back with the boys over a few beers and the footy or celebrating a milestone birthday, this is your chance to put your own spin on casualwear. Forget the wife beater and footy shorts, make your mum proud with our spiffy casual selections.

Get those summer vibes happening, think plain basic tees matched with linen shorts. For a dressier option, opt for an eclectic printed short sleeve shirt with tailored chinos, throw on your favourite pair of boat shoes or plimsolls and you’re ready!

RESOLUTION 4: EXPLORE THE UNKNOWN – WHAT TO WEAR ON HOLIDAY

 

Prepping for an adventure through South East Asia or a party marathon on one of the beautiful Mediterranean islands? No adventure is complete without mint travel photos to share and tell the tale, so make sure you pack some Instagram-worthy outfits. Play with fun prints and bold colourways to stand out.

When you’re out doing the tourist-route, play around with a statement coloured t-shirt and relaxed shorts. For a night out on the town, go for a signature short sleeved shirt with cropped jeans. Unless you’re ready to lug around a giant suitcase or committed to doing the laundry every second day, pack easy basics. That way, you can mix and match for easy rotation across different outfit options.

RESOLUTION 5: TEST THE WATERS – WHAT TO WEAR ON A FIRST DATE

 

Single and ready to mingle? Whether you’ve been talked into going on a blind date or you’ve been doing a bit of swiping on Tinder, first dates can be exciting but incredibly nerve-racking at the same time. But one thing you can certainly count on, is an outfit that won’t disappoint.

Get your game face ready and your confidence flying sky high with smart separates and an excellent pair of shoes. Whether you opt for a pair of classic loafers or a luxurious pair of sneakers, simplicity is key when it comes to getting your first date outfit on point.

STEP OUT IN STYLE WITH OUR PREMIUM FOOTWEAR

And there you have it – our two cents on what your wardrobe for the coming months should look like. Covering you from head to toe, casual gatherings to fancy weddings.

We wish you all the happiness, success and of course, wardrobe wins, for the upcoming year.
