Staying current with today’s top trends is important to many men, and wearing the right clothes can certainly help keep you up-to-date with what the chicest men around are doing. What many men forget, however, is that accessories are just as important as clothing when it comes to looking stylish. Everything from the right belt to the right men’s eyeglasses can set you apart from all of the other men that are content with looking boring all the time. Here are some of the basic accessories that every fashion-conscious man should have in his closet.
Even if your eyes are perfectly fine and you don’t need vision correction, a sleek pair of glasses can be a great way to add interest to a basic outfit. Some of the most popular eyeglasses today are chunky and extra nerdy. These thick-rimmed, plastic frames are relatively low cost, so you can feel good purchasing a pair of glasses that you may not even need. The best thing about glasses is that they are easy to switch out and try some new styles. Don’t be afraid of going bold with your glasses, since you can stick with a neutral clothing choice and still look great.
Nothing dresses up an outfit like a nice tie, and having a little bit of extra variety can give you a huge range of color choices so that you can get extra creative. Wearing the same ties over and over can get pretty boring, and people may just start noticing – especially if you are prone to spills at meal time. Try branching out and trying some fun and interesting patterns and prints on your ties. Not only can you look dressed up with the right ties, but you can even look trendy by picking today’s hottest styles of cuts and colors.
This accessory is not just fashionable, but it is practical as well. Having a nice pair of sunglasses can not only keep you looking cool, but they can help to protect your eyes from sun damage, which is no fun for anyone. There are plenty of sources for low-cost sunglasses, so don’t feel like you have to spend a lot to look good. While spending a little more will get you some higher-quality sunglasses, you can have a greater variety by picking up one or two different styles of cheap frames.
Investing in a high-quality, good looking watch is a great way to complete your wardrobe. While you may not use a watch to actually check on the time much anymore, thanks to smart phones, a nice watch looks really good with both a suit and a casual outfit.
Many men are content with owning a pair of work shoes and a pair of casual shoes, but you don’t have to stick with just a pair or two. Try looking for some interesting new shoes that will draw attention to your personal sense of style. If you usually only wear casual shoes, why not pick a dressier pair just to switch things up a bit. Don’t be afraid of thinking outside of the box to create some interesting outfit combinations.
