When it comes to accessories, I know most men don’t like them. They think it’s feminine or something like that to have too many accessories. The truth is, accessories can finish off an outfit and even make it more practical. Here are 10 accessories I consider a must for all men!
A Knitted Scarf
Knitted scarves are a great way to accessorize an outfit, plus they’ll keep you nice and warm on a chilly day. There’s really nothing feminine about a knitted scarf, as long as it isn’t neon pink. You can find plenty of ‘manly’ styles on the high street.
A Leather Belt
A leather belt to keep your trousers up. This is an obvious one, and actually one most men will already have. Women use belts for more of a fashion statement, but men actually need them to stop their backsides from hanging out. Either way, a good leather one is essential!
A Man Bag
The man bag is unfamiliar territory for most guys. However, they’re perfect for running errands on a busy day. They’ll fit all kinds of important stuff and they look effortlessly stylish too. Women love these, believe it or not. Joey from Friends hated the idea when Rachel suggested it to him, but he loved the bag in the end. I think you will too.
A Leather Wallet
To go with your man bag, of course! A leather wallet will last a lifetime, and the more you use it the more character it’ll get.
A Good Watch
A good watch is a must for everyday wear and night time attire. Women notice a good watch more than you think. It doesn’t need to cost a fortune, but it should be high quality. Shinola watches for men will give you an idea of the kind of watch you should be looking for.
Sunglasses are a must, and not just for fashion reasons either. They protect the eyes from damaging sun rays and will stop you getting premature lines around your eyes. Trust me!
A Grooming Kit
Carry a grooming kit in your man bag – you never know what might crop up when you’re out and about! These kits usually contain things like nail clippers, files, scissors, and more.
A Travel Bag
A travel bag won’t be something you carry everywhere, but it will come in handy for weekends away and such. Make sure you choose a timeless style, like a barrel bag from Fred Perry!
You’ve probably already got a tie, but is it giving off the right impression? I like my ties to say a little something about me. Be adventurous with your tie if you like; you can afford to be!
Little details make all the difference, so invest in some statement socks. You might not see them all the time, but when you sit down they might just make people smile.
