Mens Fashion – Make a Style Statement with the Right Accessories

Updated on May 30, 2013

Men accessories, quite unlike its literal meaning are no longer just an ornamental part of a man’s ensemble. These are items that one wears for main two reasons:

For performing some sort of practical function, like a watch to check the time, and for boosting your outfit stylistically, like cool shades or designer cufflinks.

When accessories are worn with the intention of standing out in a crowd, they can really make one’s outfit a class apart.

If you want to make an individual style statement, then accessories in the form of a scarf or a simple necktie can create a dramatic impact.

The modern man is fast realizing the importance of accessories in his wardrobe. A good one can transform even the most mundane outfit and rather than discarding those outfits worn nth number of times why not enhance it and give a new look by adding some trendy accessories .

Eyewear - Increasingly, eyeglasses are being taken up as fashion accessories for men of all ages. Adding eyeglasses to one’s outfit can have the effect of making you look more sophisticated and classy. Non prescription lenses are mainly used in eyeglasses used as accessories so as not to deform the vision of those wearing them. Sunglasses on the other hand can impart both a trendy as well as stylish look, but one must select the frame with utmost care as it can make or mar one’s fashion statement.

Neckties and Scarves - It was in ancient time that a tie signified social status. Now it is sported as a fashion accessory .It can be further stylized by a fine tie-bar although this will give a more formal look but nevertheless leave an impact.

Slim narrow ties can also add a trendy, fashionable touch to your outfit.

Watches - It is no longer a timepiece used mainly to know the time but becoming a style statement in itself. A designer watch on your wrist can draw attention to it for many years to come. While choosing a watch you must take into consideration your lifestyle. Casual watches don’t blend in office or formal situations it can create a negative style statement.

Belts - The general rule is matching your belt with your shoes which gives a formal look - Black shoes, black belt. But for a rocker look, team a metal studded belt or a big buckle, with some dark skinny jeans.

Shoes - A perfect outfit is nothing without the right pair of shoes. It can make or break an entire ensemble. Five pairs one must have are: ankle boot, brown and black dress shoes, sneakers and casual shoes.

Hit the pavement in style this summer with these few tips in mind!
