For most men, fashion sense doesn’t come naturally. Men sometimes have a harder time than women putting together a look for work or pleasure that conveys sophistication and style. Besides taking your time purchasing classic apparel pieces, such as quality jeans, a suit that fits well, and basic oxford shirts, men can also improve their style with accessories. Here are the most important accessories men should own to upgrade their style.
When it comes to jewelry for men, less is more. Most men only wear a wedding ring and skip other pieces, such as bracelets and necklaces. One accessory piece that men shouldn’t skip is a quality watch. Ideally, you should invest in two watches, one dress watch for special occasions and one everyday casual watch.
Another essential accessory that men should put a little more money into is a wallet. Choose a quality leather wallet that will endure everyday use and last a little longer than something cheaper. Wallets are used multiple times a day, and pulling out an old, worn wallet in front of business associates and friends can give everyone a certain impression about you.
Most men have a few baseball caps in their collection and that’s it. Upgrade your accessory game by purchasing a quality men’s hat that doesn’t have a sports logo on it. A dress hat will add instant coolness to your outfit and give you an edge on style. Putting a little more care in upgrading your casual baseball hats can also completely change your look.
Carrying a bag is another accessory essential if you have an active lifestyle or a busy work agenda. Throw out your old gym duffel and consider getting something a little classier to take to your next workout. Choose a bag that has material that is water-resistant and doesn’t hold onto sweaty smells.
Lastly, belts don’t always get a lot of attention because most men don’t really pay attention to them when looking at an outfit. Wearing the wrong belt will get you noticed, for the wrong reasons. Take some time to purchase a high-quality leather belt for your dress-up days and a second one for your casual days where jeans are more appropriate. Make sure your belt fits properly and matches the look you want.
If you want to look your best every day, there’s no need to buy the latest men’s apparel fashions and break the bank. Instead, keep it simple with quality accessories that you can use each year, no matter what is in style.
