Accessory Guide for Men!

No matter what style dilemma you've recently been dealing with, there's always an accessory that will solve it. Having a bad hair day? Sort it out with a beanie which makes you look cool in cool days. You think your outfit is very simple? Just wear a trendy leather bracelet and a men necklace to make your look in a style.

Finding the right details to finish off an outfit isn't something most guys think about. From neckwear, glasses, belts, and bracelets,  there are many ways to have a ‘effortlessly stylish’ look. You just need to know which one or ones are for you. So… Here is a men's accessory guide just before Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Pick one!

  • Hats and beanies - A hat is a great addition to your outfit. Casual hats with a black framed glasses give a playful vibe and a scholar look to a business or a casual  smart look. For example, throwing on a navy or grey beanie with a navy blazer, khaki chinos or jeans, grey jumper, rugged boots, a printed scarf , and a messenger bag is a great touch. It shows you put effort into your outfit but without a big effort.

Quiksilver Caribou hat black: £30

  • Glasses and Sunglasses – Sunglasses are not just for summer anymore. When you see a little sunshine just put them on. Besides in winter season if you are a snowboarder or a skier your sunglasses are for 12 months. And drivers… You never know when the sun hurts your eyes while driving. If it’s a very grey there without any sunlight then you may go with coloured framed glasses for a scholar look. In both cases be sure to know your face shape.

  • Scarves - I know… You are tired of reading  about statement scarves but it’s such a big and important trend that I can’t finalize any posts without mentioning it. For a formal  look you may go with loop knots (fold the scarf in half and put the loose ends through the loop). For a more casual look just swing the scarf around your neck and letting both ends hang on each side.

  • Belts - They say women can’t walk properly without a bag. That’s not true. But we do feel naked without a bag. That’s true.  I think the same situation must be for belts and guys. Guys (You) MUST feel themselves naked without a belt. It’s that much an essential! Belt rules are easy to get right: If your pants have belt loops, wear a belt with them. For a formal look make sure that your belt fits with your shoes. For a casual look go with ‘outstanding’ ones. Try contrast colours.

  • Bracelets, necklaces, and watches – I don’t know if it’s just me but I think men wearing bracelets, watches, and necklaces are very sexy! When it comes to bracelets don’t wear too many. 1-2 is enough. 
- An elegant necklace or a pendant seen behind your shirt or V-neck t-shirt/jumper… Nothing can be that sexy! When it comes to chains & necklaces, always think simple, clean and a little bit traditional. Don’t go for thick gold chain ones! Never! Male chains tend to be constructed slightly thicker than their feminine counterparts, so don’t assume you’ve got to buy the heaviest looking piece.

A great watch makes a huge statement. Lately, affordable watches have been getting stylish upgrades from the variety of different bands available from retailers. It just needs to sync up with your lifestyle and your daily outfit. A leather strap watch is a MUST HAVE! If you accomplished this then you may have colourful or stainless steel ones too. Like any other piece in your wardrobe, your watch needs to make sense with the rest of what you're wearing.

  • Gloves – I must say only go for leather gloves. Maybe it’s the biker charisma or something else but men should wear only but only leather gloves. That’s my idea and I’m standing behind it! They are also functional you know. J You can keep your hands warm. Try to make it good with your watch too.
