Despite the commonly held belief that men’s fashion accessories are relegated to a belt, watch, and tie, men have far more options says Dev Randhawa. Following are a few lesser known items that can accent any look.
A compelling substitute for a standard neck tie, a concrete or marble bow tie, is sure to stand out. If sticking with a standard tie, a tie chain is a stylish and functional alternative to a tie clip. In addition to bringing elegance to an ensemble, the chain keeps the tie down while allowing freedom of movement against the shirt, preventing a tie from bulging as one moves. To keep things dressy without a tie, a collar chain provides a little extra interest and can be worn with or sans tie. If the chain feels like too much, consider the more subtle collar pen. Earrings are in vogue for both sexes, but many men do not want to commit to a piercing. An ear cuff fills the gap and brings a little rock and roll to a look. Switch from a wrist to a pocket watch for a hint of nostalgia or steampunk. Even shoes can be easily styled with metal shoe clips, silver for black shoes, and gold for brown.
A belt, watch, and tie are only the beginning. Whatever the desired impression, there are more accessories available than ever to help men achieve it.
