MUST-HAVE ACCESSORIES FOR MEN



If clothes make a man, accessories completes his look. Do you think of accessories as items you throw on just before you dash out the front door? If yes, you are going to accessory hell. But, it’s not too late to save yourself from the wrath of no accessories or worse, bad accessories. If you are a man of style, you need to know the essential accessories you must own.


A watch is not just an accessory; it is an extension of your signature. In fact, style purists insist that a watch is the most important accessory you will own. If there is one accessory worth investing in, it’s a watch. You would rather have one worthy watch as opposed to 10 passable watches.


Like your watch, your tie warrants for close consideration. Your choice of tie depends on how formal or informal the occasion is. Either way, it is an item of clothing that you can push boundaries with. Your tie can add edginess to your overall look, be a conversation piece, a work art or just a mere extension of your look. Your tie can become whatever you make of it. Choose wisely.


Your wallet is another accessory you must invest in. The reason is that most men take their wallet for granted. How, you wonder? Well, it is time to give your wallet a closer, more scrutinizing look. Is it wearing off? If it passable? Is it something that gets you around? If your answer is yes to any of these questions, it is time to go wallet shopping. Your wallet has to look classy, feel elegant and of course, since it houses your money, cards, etc.., you have got to give it its due importance in the accessory ladder.


You can wear: A belt is more than an accessory that holds your trousers in place; it is an extension of your ensemble. You have got to remember that your belt should always complement your shoes. So when choosing a belt for your outfit, ensure that you have a pair of shoes that matches your belt.


There are few things that personify elegance, class and attention to detail, and your brief case is one of them. Your brief case pretty much determines whether you mean business or not, and of course it ups your style quotient. A man with a brief case means serious business and it’s imperative that you get one. However, since men’s fashion has seen a revolution and you are spoilt for choice when it comes to bags, some fashion watchers now consider the brief case much paternal. But, this is one accessory that is timeless and will always be in style.
