Welcome to our guide on how to build a capsule wardrobe for men! Traditionally, capsule wardrobes embrace versatility, and are composed mainly of neutral-colored, interchangeable clothing and must-have basics. As timeless pieces, we're centering our guide on how to wear a polo shirt, and the best polo shirt brands in the Philippines. Let's get started on curating your very own men's capsule wardrobe!
1. Polo Shirts
Short-sleeve polo shirts are a staple in any man’s capsule wardrobe. Match a dark-colored polo with fitted chinos and loafers for a simple but polished day-to-night look. Colorful polos, on the other hand, can be reserved for casual outings. Linen polos or polo shirts with embroidery make breezier, resort-ready additions to your wardrobe; wear them open with a plain undershirt and lightweight shorts for a relaxed, beach-inspired look.
At Kultura Filipino, we carry a wide range of polo shirts from favorite brands like Islas Filipinas and Tropiko.
By adding these polo shirts to your capsule wardrobe, you can level up your casual style, support local brands, and show off your Pinoy pride.
2. Shirts and Tees
For the office and beyond, we recommend having three long-sleeve, button-down shirts in colors like white, gray, cream, navy, or black, since these are easy to mix and match. For casual days, choose T-shirts that follow the same neutral-toned color palette. You can style these tees with tailored pants as well or layer them under sweaters or jackets for cooler, rainy days.
In order to maximize your outfit options, choose classic pairs that are easy to match. Chinos in colors like cream, tan, navy, or brown, are ideal for casual occasions – we recommend up to three pairs. Navy, black, or charcoal-toned slacks are essential for more formal dress codes. Complete your pants selection with a pair of jeans to wear while running errands at the mall, hanging with friends, or for other relaxing activities.
On warmer days, stay cool by opting for shorts in place of trousers. While sticking to neutral tones is always advised, shorts are typically worn during the summer – so you might want to throw in a brighter, colorful option, like green or blue, to stay in season.
5. Jackets and Blazers
Elevate any look by completing it with a tailored blazer – great for the office and slightly dressier events. During the weekend, swap out the blazer for a classic denim jacket, or a lightweight cardigan for a cozier feel. A trench coat, puffer, or sporty bomber jacket can be useful if you often travel to cooler climates.
