If you’re a man who wants to dress well, you’re going to need to go beyond the basics. That’s right, you’ll need to get some accessories. Not like purses or earrings though; you need accessories for men. But before you do that, you’ll need to know some basics.
First thing that every man needs are some belts. Not a single belt, you need multiple belts. Why? Because your belt needs to match your shoes, and you also need more than one pair of shoes. The standard is three belts; a black one to go with black shoes, a brown one to go with brown shoes, and a casual one to go with sporty shoes.
You’ll also buy yourself a watch if you want to look good and classy. Not some cheap watch you can get at Wal-Mart. You’re going to get a fancy watch, either leather or metal, and you want it to look expensive. If you’re buying a watch for less than 100 dollars, you’re buying the wrong watch.
If you wear formal clothing often enough, you should look into buying some cuff links. These are used to tighten the sleeve of a dress shirt around the wrist, and it looks a lot better than using buttons. And that’s the point of getting these men’s accessories, right? Looking good.
You also want to be prepared for any kind of weather. If it’s cold outside, let’s hope you have a nice looking pair of gloves. I’m not talking about ridiculous snow-gloves, you need some fancy, quality, leather gloves that restrict the movement of your fingers as little as possible. A scarf is another thing that a lot of men wear to keep warm when the weather is cold. Matching your scarf to your shirt can really make you stand out as a fashionable guy.
And if it’s raining, you’ll need an umbrella. There is nothing formal and fashionable for a man that has a hood attached. If you live somewhere with a lot of rain, invest in a quality, black umbrella, preferably one that can folded into a compact size when not in use. Nothing other than black is acceptable.
If you own all of the above, you have a good set of accessories for men, even though there’s more to look into, of course, like glasses, pocket watches, even some necklaces and rings. If you don’t, then you should probably get to it!
Like Mark Twain said, “Clothes make the man.”
