Well-chosen accessories can take an outfit to a whole other level and make it go from 0 to 100 instantly.
We know that accessories are what complement the outfit and show that you have taken the time to make the outfit look good and that you have not just thrown on the first pieces of clothing you saw. We also know that accessories used wrong and without confidence can ruin the whole look easily.
Many men are not comfortable with wearing jewellery or accessories. If you want to give wearing accessories a shot (which you should). Don’t be afraid to experiment with different accessories until you get comfortable with the right pieces that work for you, like smartwatches, bracelets, rings and sunglasses etc.
If you haven't been using bracelets before, it's time to start now. Men's bracelets have been among the top men's accessories for a while now and they'll continue to be there in 2019 summer also.
Your personal style has an impact on what types of bracelets suit you the best. Whether you're into classic clothes or street style or anything in between, there is a perfect bracelet out there that fits the style perfectly. Remember that a bracelet should be there as a subtle detail. Not as the centrepiece of your outfit, but definitely as a distinct part of the look.
If you are wearing a suit and tie on a daily basis, something metallic and luxurious looking, like a silver chain or a beaded bracelet with metallic details is a great choice. If your wardrobe consists more of comfy and casual clothes, you’re probably going to do better in more laid-back bracelets. Try a macrame bracelet, a trendy leather anchor bracelet, or a beaded bracelet in your favourite colour.
Tip: Depending on the style of the bracelet, you can wear just one or stack many to maximize the effect. The rule is, you can stack as many thin cord bracelets and beaded bracelets on the same wrist as you like, but don't mix more than one big metal band on the same wrist. Also, do not match the bracelets on both of your wrists. Preferably, leave one wrist unoccupied.
One thing is sure: wristwatches never go out of style. A watch is a form of self-expression. The style of the watch on your wrist tells other people a lot about your lifestyle. That should be kept in mind when choosing a watch to wear. Some people like to own just one, good quality watch that they can use in any occasion. Others prefer to have more choice and variety and own multiple different wristwatches that they can alternate even daily.
There are two major trends that can be easily noticed when looking into today's watch trends. The first and more common trend is watches with very simplistic and plain design. The outlook is usually very minimalist and the color is neutral. The great thing about these types of watches is that they are often very versatile and can be used with casual outfits as well as with classic suits.
Tip: A watch is something other people pay attention to. We recommend having at least two watches - a casual smart one to track your health data and one for more formal and festive occasions.
Not all men are confident enough to wear rings. The opinion of too many men is that the only ring a man should wear is a wedding band. Luckily things have changed lately and men have started to realize the potential of rings as fashion accessories. Men's fashion rings will be a more common sight in 2019. As more men start wearing them, the more others get the courage to follow.
Tip: With rings, less is more. You can't wear a ring on every finger without it looking like it's too much. Wear one, two or three rings at the same time - not more.
Sunglasses are both practical and timeless. They were first created to protect eyes from all the harmful rays of the sun. Nowadays, sunglasses protect eyes just like in the old days. However, they are more often used plainly as statement pieces to showcase one's personal style. Some people own numerous pairs so they can match the right pair of glasses with the occasion, their outfit, and mood.
Whether you like to use sunglasses or not, you definitely should own a classic pair of neutral colored sunglasses, like aviators or wayfarers. Be it a casual day, party or funeral, these glasses can be easily used anywhere. If all the basics are covered, you should definitely play with colors and textures, and maybe add mirror lenses to top up the look. Find a great selection of affordable, good quality sunglasses here.
Tip: If you're looking for a good pair of statement glasses, try wearing clear, non-prescription glasses. A well-fitting pair that suits your face shape can make you look cool and trendy in any situation.
Last but not least, you should make sure all your accessories are neat and in good shape.
