The last thing any man wants to do is to go out shopping for accessories! Accessories are considered to be an important part of a woman’s wardrobe and not a man’s. However, this is not true at all. To give a polished look to any outfit, be it casual or formal, you need accessories. Unlike women’s accessories which need to be updated seasonally, you just have to go out once, get the accessories to nail your look and voila’, you are ready to go.
Let’s take a look at some of the must-have accessories you should have.
Tie or Bow
You may not wear ties more often, especially now that most of the workplaces have opted for casual work attire, but you still need to have a couple of them. A simple black or navy blue tie is a must-have as it can be worn with any suit. If you have a bold and lively personality, then go all out for a floral or a patterned tie. However, when you buy a tie, do not compromise on the material, as a second material tie can easily ruin the look of an expensive suit.
This is one hand accessory that almost everyone has. Invest in a classic and timeless wrist watch as it is more about quality than quantity and it is better to have one beautiful watch rather than having some grungy pieces. When you buy a watch, make sure it is age-appropriate as nothing looks more off than a man in 40’s wearing a hip-hop watch. Remember, a watch not only makes you look sophisticated and stylish but also gives you an organized look.
Belts are not only visually appealing, but they are functional as well. Like a pair of good quality shoes, a high-quality leather belt can last you a lifetime. A black or chocolate brown leather belt should be a part of your wardrobe. The age-old rule of matching your shoes to your belt still stands high and should not be broken.
Nothing looks more off than a man taking out an untidy wad of cash from his pocket. A wallet keeps your money organized and holds your identification documents, so it is only fair to invest in a real wallet. Keeping it clean and organized and replacing it with a new one, when the time comes, is all you need to do. Slim wallets are all the rage now, as they are made from 100% leather and reduce the bulk in your pockets.
A multi-purpose dagger or a pocket knife may not cross your mind as a must-have accessory, but it is an essential part of a man’s wardrobe. You may not be living the life of Indiana Jones, but you still need a pocket knife for a thing or two, from opening a box to cutting ropes and even apples! Invest in a good quality multi-purpose dagger, as it will be an accessory worth showing off!
The importance of sunglasses can never be under-estimated. They not only protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays but also give you an air of mystery, too. From aviators to Ray-Bans, they keep you looking fresh, giving you an additional ‘oomph’ look. When you buy sunglasses, choose the frame according to your face shape and buy a sturdy frame that can last for long.
Perfumes & Deodorants
The power of a perfume cannot be under-estimated. Before you even enter a room, it is your perfume that makes an impression. Invest in at least one or two expensive perfumes, how you smell can make a lasting impression. A vigorous and good perfume is one accessory that leaves good looks far behind!
Giant Woolen Blanket
You may not consider a giant wool blanket as an accessory, as you do not put it on, but keeping it in the trunk of your car is all you need to do. A spontaneous countryside picnic with your partner calls for a blanket, and it is for this romantic picnic that we have put a giant wool blanket in your must-have accessory list. There is nothing cozier than cuddling with your partner.
An essential part of any man’s wardrobe, boots always seem to get more done than shoes. They are not just for winters anymore. They come in different styles and can be worn on a daily basis. Boot up for any occasion, invest in a pair that can take you places.
There is nothing more stylish a man can wear on his fingers than a durable tungsten carbide black ring, to compliment his attire. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a wedding band, tungsten rings have been in vogue for over a decade now. As the saying goes, the devil is in the detail, that little extra something will make every man look sophisticated, stylish and fun.
