Must-Have Accessories for Men

When it comes to menswear high-quality and well fitted clothes are important. However it’s often tough to stand out in a pair of jeans or chinos and an oxford shirt. Therefore it’s vital to ensure that your personality shines through with well-selected accessories that complement and highlight your style.

A classic watch

This is a vital accessory that can really enhance any outfit regardless of the occasion. Whether you’re suited-and-booted for a wedding, going to the office, or heading to the beach in a pair of shorts and a polo shirt, a good watch will instantly add class and style. It’s really worth sinking some money into this one – after all, it’s better to own one incredible watch than several standard ones. Something like an Omega Spectre is an ideal choice. Not only does it look good, but a luxury watch is a solid investment that will only gain value over time.

A slick wallet

Wallets are first and foremost a practical storage space for money, credit cards and identification. Every man needs one but make sure you find a wallet that works for your lifestyle. For example, if you seem to carry excessive amounts of cash, then a basic billfold or trifold is your answer. If you find that you only carry cards and ID, then you’re probably after a super slim wallet that can easily fit into your pocket. On the flipside of this, you can get a money clip to compactly store cash. There are a variety of different styles, so always take note of the brand and the material that the wallet’s made of. A good rule of thumb is to always go with something leather as it’s the most durable, practical and generally aesthetically pleasing.

Perfectly shaped glasses

This category only applies to some readers, but if you’re lucky enough to have great vision then don’t feel too beleaguered. For the rest of you, glasses are a necessary evil that’s not always a bad thing. Glasses can add a certain depth to your features and indeed change your look entirely, which is why you should always take special care when choosing the right pair. Always match the glasses to the shape of your face. The basic tenet is that if your face is lacking a certain quality, then the right frames can provide it to add balance. For example, if your face is very sharp and angular, then a set of round glasses will add some curves. When it comes to frame materials, it all depends on how much you’re willing to spend. Plastics are a good, cheap option and will likely last for a long time. If you’re looking for something more lightweight and flexible however, titanium alloys are a good direction to go in.

A killer tie

A tie is one of the most noticed accessories when wearing a suit, and can often provide the entire character of an outfit. Ties are available in a multitude of colors, styles and patterns. It’s important to recognize what will work for your current outfit. In recent years, skinny ties have been in vogue and seem to cater to a more form-fitted suit. But depending on your needs, a wider tie may also work. In terms of materials, try stay away from synthetics; a solid cotton or silk tie is always a good bet, and won’t set you back too much. It’s also important that you know how to actually tie a tie. But for those who struggle, there’s always the lazy man’s tie.
