We know… you’re broke after all the holiday gifts you had to buy. But, you still want to look sharp. Go buy yourself 2 basics and then add the details to change them up.

Basic 1: a slim leg or straight leg pair of tan pants. Basic 2: a blue slim fit oxford button down shirt.

Kyle Kornowski shows you how to keep it casual but add a detail to get the looks he deserves.

  • Start: the oxford shirt and the tan pants
  • Add: a hoodie for a casual layer up
  • Detail: a pattern knit tie like this one from our archives
  • Shoes: Converse chucks are a casual choice
