Men’s fashion has definitely come a long way. Men do not only have a wide range of options to choose from nowadays, but they are left with that daunting process of choosing accessories for a certain event – something that we girls have been doing since the moment our moms stopped dressing us up.
However, even though the female wardrobe shows her femininity and style, the one of the man is definitely a work of art, since, let’s be honest, they are not left with so much choice.
Anyhow, the wardrobe of a guy tells a lot about him, but even more than that, it’s the accessories that reveal those personality nuances we’re looking for when we’re meeting a guy. So, gentlemen, these are the most important accessories that you should own if you want to come across as extremely fashionable:
Tie it up
First and foremost – ties. We all love a gentleman by our side, and if you’re going to a certain black tie event, you really need to know how to dress properly. First of all, you need to have a good tailored suit (we’re not discussing this, it’s mandatory), but the success lies in the details.
For example, having a good tie can make or break any look – so say goodbye to bow ties as they are quite passe at the moment, and embrace the power of the good old tie. Wearing a good tie does not only show power, but also style, positivity and smartness.
Time for shades
Regardless of the fact that you’re going on a holiday or not, you need a pair of very good sunglasses. This is an inevitable part of any spring or summer look, but that doesn’t mean that you won’t be needing them in winter and autumn as well.
This is one of the most popular accessories men rock, and it’s very important that you choose high-quality sunglasses. Make sure that you use ones that are made of good materials as you don’t want your eyes to suffer, and most importantly, choose ones that go well with the shape of your face. For example, a pair of round glasses pairs nicely with a square face.
On the watch
There are men whose only accessory is a good watch, and sometimes this is more than enough. Owning a good watch is timeless, especially if the watch is a high-quality one. However, in this new day and age, you don’t need a vintage watch in order to look fashionable.
Namely, Apple watches have become so popular that many men opt to wear them instead of the ones with a leather band. If you opt for this choice, though, make sure that you use fashionable and good brands. Among the many popular carbon fiber accessories, you will also find carbon fiber Apple watch covers that do not only look good but are also flexible, durable and will protect your electronics. You can also opt for a golden digital Casio watch which can also look hella dapper!
If you are already rocking your signature style watch and want to add an extra oomph to your outfit, you can always rely on the right jewelry to work in your favor. Men’s bracelets have been in style for ages and now men are exploring different way to style them either by wearing discreet ones next to a watch or stacking leather and beaded ones to make a statement.
Around the belt
There is an accessory that can be worn anytime, any day, regardless of the type of event you’re going to. It’s the almighty belt, and suffice is to say that every fashion-minded guy should own at least one.
However, if you really want to look amazing every day, you need to own at least a couple of them, and pair them up with your shoes. This is why having a leather black, brown and light brown belts is imperative!
Put it in the bag
A bag is not an accessory, it’s essential. However, even though many guys have at least one bag that they rock, it’s very important to know what kind of bag you should have. There are many options to choose from, starting from small bags and briefcases to stylish duffel bags, and all of these are important. However, a leather bag is the one that you really want, as it’s always very stylish and formal, and if you opt for this step, make sure that you choose a high-quality one as you want it to last for a long time.
Audacity of socks
The last but certainly not the least accessory are socks. Sure, this is not an accessory per se, but since there are so many beautiful and crazy patterns out there, it’s pretty obvious that we’re not wearing socks to keep us warm, but to look fashionable. You can choose any pattern that you want – flamingos, avocados, even Donald Duck, make them a bit visible under your jeans or pants and you have yourself quite a stylish look.
Yes, guys don’t have so much choice as far as accessories are concerned, but you can do your best to make the most out of the ones that you have. Next thing – start your car, go to the mall and get yourself the best out of these!
