9 Items Every Man Needs in His Closet

Heed the advice of Belk style guru Arlene Goldstein for what’s in this season in menswear and consider yourself fashion savvy. Goldstein says the idea is to incorporate items that exude style and are comfortable. Here’s the hot list for spring:

1. New Polo — Throw out your old polo for one in a more modern fit with neat details like special pocket treatments.

2. Patterned Shorts — Plaids, camo, tropical florals and prints are charming essentials to this warm weather wardrobe necessity.

3. Preppy Shirt — Raise your cool factor with options in oxfords, retro plaids and chambray, just to name a few.

4. Cargo Short — Add attitude with industrial details like grommets and pair a gray shorts with an English tan belt for the coolest look.

5. Linen Sportcoat — This season’s completer piece in garment-washed textiles helps update your look effortlessly.

6. Bold Color Dress Shirt — Embrace daring colors like bright green, cantaloupe, teal and pink for spring.

7. Old-School Ties — They may be old-school, but these ties offer a youthful edge with grown-up elegance.

8. Khaki Suit — Keep it slim and consider this every cool guy’s uniform for the summer. As Goldstein puts it “naturals have never been so natty.”

9. Driving Moc — Inspired by Ivy League, this laid-back loafer is a great alternative to the boat shoe.
