Men's fashion is a tricky thing to get right. There are so many rules and guidelines that it can be hard to know what works for you and your body type. Luckily, we have plenty of accessories at our disposal that will help us look dapper no matter what we're wearing. Here are ten great fashion accessories for men:
- A watch
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of accessories is a watch. Watches are timeless, and they can be worn with any outfit. For example, if you’re going for a more formal look, you might wear a silver or gold watch with your suit while still looking elegant. If you’re casual, then you might try wearing a rugged leather strap watch with jeans and a t-shirt.
- A pocket square
A pocket square can be a great way to add some style to your outfit. You can use it to match your tie, or even your shirt or pocket watch. This accessory is very versatile, and there are many ways you could wear it.
- A tie bar
A tie bar is a small piece of metal that attaches the tie to your shirt to keep it in place. There are different length tie bars to suit different ties, with the most common being 38mm or 58mm in length.
Cufflinks are a great way to add a splash of color to your outfit. They’re also an easy way to express your personality and interests in a subtle way. You can utilise more casual style cufflinks and more formal style cufflinks depending on the occasion and your personal style.
A tie is a neckwear and an accessory which men wear to create a more formal look. Neckties are strips of fabric that are tied around the neck, often in a bow shape. The first documented use of ties date back to 4000 BC, when Sumerian priests would wear them under their robes to show they were not carrying weapons.
The modern tie we know today originated in France during the 17th century as a cravat – a long strip of fabric worn around the neck with points hanging down over one shoulder. The word ‘cravat’ comes from Croatian or Serbian ‘krvavit’ meaning ‘to stain with blood’, because this type of neckwear was often worn by soldiers who used it as bandages after battle...
Bracelets are a great way to add an extra touch to your outfit. They can be worn with almost any outfit, and are suitable for any occasion from casual wear to formal attire. Bracelets also come in a variety of materials, so you can get one that matches your style and personality.
Sunglasses are a great way to add some style to your outfit. They can be worn with any outfit, from casual or formal to athletic or everyday. Sunglasses can be used to add a bit of color and contrast, or they can simply be the focal point of an otherwise typical look. No matter what your style is, there’s always room for sunglasses in your life.
Even with the existence of Apple Pay/Walle, a slim leather wallet or a money clip a is a must-have accessory for men. It's something you should always have on you and makes a great fashion accessory. You don't need to carry too many things in your wallet or money clip—a few cards, some cash and a few of your business cards should be sufficient to get you through the day.
There is nothing better putting on a fresh pair of socks. Socks are a great way to add a bit of personality to an outfit, and it's something that's unique to each person. Whether you buy them from the store or design your own, socks can be fun and quirky or classic, even if you just wear them around the house.
- Business card holder
When you're out with friends or co-workers, it's important to be prepared. If a potential business contact asks for your number and you don't have a way to provide it, they may think that you're not serious about the meeting or that there's something wrong with you. A good business card holder will hold all of your cards in an organised fashion so that they're easy to get to when needed. You can also use a money clip as a more compact business card holder.
