10 Things You Need to Upgrade Your Wardrobe in 2016

It's a good year to separate the man from the boys.

The athleisure look may be trendy right now, but come 2016, that sneakers-and-jogger-jeans look that you've been rocking so confidently is sure to fly out the window.

Withstand the fickle waves of fashion by going for something more timeless next year. Opt for grown-up versions of your current closet mainstays—essentials that you probably already have, but can still afford to upgrade. Top those off with accessories that add a sophisticated touch to your wardrobe and you're more likely to survive 2016 in style.

Don't let 2016 sink-in without the following pieces in your closet:

1. A bomber jacket
Bomber jackets were all over the menswear runways for spring/summer 2016. Throw on a leather one in a classic hue and watch the ladies’ heads turn!

3. A grown-up backpack
Still walking around in your trusty high school carry-all? If you're looking for something more mature, don't fret: you can still go for a backpack. Just make sure that it's a simple, sophisticated silhouette that's well-constructed and done in good materials.

Lace-up oxfords add a touch of class to any outfit. Choose a subtle change in color such as Burgundy, Mustard, and Navy to up the ante of your shoe game this year.

Nothing is more essential to a man's wardrobe than the navy blazer. Consider it your go-to for any and all occasions that require a little more than just a collared shirt.
