WHEN IN DOUBT, ACCESSORISE…

Clothing is undoubtedly essential for protection and warmth, but if your wardrobe relies solely on clothing, it may lack excitement and style. Jewellery has become an inseparable part of clothing and plays a huge role in fashion; if you’re looking to transform your look, impress someone on your next date, or find a simple way to put together a fresh fit, you’ll want to learn how to utilise jewellery and accessories. When it comes to tailoring, the thoughtful selection of accessories sets you apart from the crowd. Don’t be just another guy in a suit—pair your tailored look with carefully chosen accessories to make a lasting impression.

Why is jewellery powerful? It can spice up essential clothing; if you have a favourite black shirt that you wear too often, make it look unique every time with different jewellery. For a casual look, pair it with a simple silver chain. It’s a confidence booster, we all know that amazing feeling we get from putting on a great piece of jewellery but don’t forget less is sometimes more. It’s simple to go overboard with accessories, so be mindful to avoid cluttering your overall look, so if you’re drawing attention with a statement chain, put on only a few rings that compete for attention.

If you’re into statement earrings, make a bold fashion statement with eye-catching, oversized, or uniquely designed earrings. Perfect for elevating casual and formal outfits, Sleek watches are a timeless accessory that adds sophistication to your look; you can choose minimalist designs or classic styles to complement various companies. Stylish bags are not just functional; they’re a crucial style element. Go for leather or fashionable canvas totes, clutches, or backpacks that suit your taste.

Sunglasses protect your eyes and add a cool factor to your ensemble. Stay on-trend with shapes that complement your face, and it’s worth trying on different styles before you buy; you’ll find that one pair that suits your face and seriously makes you look cool and don’t be swayed by anyone. Wear the ones you like, and don’t buy them cheap, they won’t last.

If you’re into hats, whether winter or summer, you can’t go wrong with a fedora. Hats are versatile accessories that can instantly upgrade your look; you can experiment with fedoras, wide-brimmed hats, or beanies for a trendy touch, or even if you’re not into big hats, a porkpie, distinct from a fedora with its short-brimmed design, carries connotations of a more working-class background and perhaps a bit of a fiery temperament. And never invest in a car that requires you to remove your hat while driving.

Scarves are not just for warmth; they can elevate your outfit’s sophistication. Play with patterns, textures, and draping styles for a chic effect. Consider a cashmere scarf matching or harmonious shade with your outfit, whether a suit or jeans and overcoat, coupled with a stylish tote in a complementary hue. From a functional standpoint, quality men’s scarves serve the dual purpose of preventing cold air from seeping into your winter coat and offering a helpful face covering during chilly winds that target your T-zone.

Transform your outfit with a statement belt that cinches the waist and adds flair. Think about  experimenting with textures, colours, and unique buckle designs and if you opt for a belt, choose a discreet option that seamlessly blends into the suit, or go bold with a statement piece like a suede belt; personal style should be as diverse as the occasions you dress for, allowing you to express yourself with confidence and flair. 

Collectively, these accessories contribute to a polished and classy appearance. Mix and match them based on your style to create a unique and trendy look.
