Things have moved on for the fashion-conscious man. No longer are they tied to white collars and ties. What a man chooses to wear can be seen as a reflection of their personality. Regardless of age, lifestyle and occupation, there are certain items a man should try to include in their wardrobe. If you’d like to treat your better half to some of the following essential accessories, they’ll be pretty much set for all occasions.
A Functional Umbrella
You can never tell when you’re going to get caught out by the weather, and it’s better to be prepared than arrive at an important meeting soaking wet. There are many excellent brands of umbrella, so don’t be tempted with a low-cost alternative as it’ll break just when it’s needed. The best umbrellas come in a range of sizes and can be made from an array of different materials. The more daring gents out there might be tempted to choose one with a carved handle.
These have a variety of uses, not just for blowing the nose. Choose handkerchiefs made from linen and they’ll last a lifetime. You might be lucky enough to have a few that have been handed down from previous generations.
Black Leather Shoes
If you’re going shopping for fashion accessories, start off by looking for the right pair of shoes. A key pair for any gent’s wardrobe is going to be a pair of black leather lace-ups. They work well with a suit and jeans and can be worn for all occasions. Encourage him to be a little more daring with a pair of colourful, flashy socks.
No longer an item for just the office, a tie can be used to make a bold statement, whatever the occasion. It’s an accessory that can be matched with almost any item of clothing, although he’ll have to be careful when it comes to different collars. Not all types suit the wearing of a tie. Play it safe with solid colours or choose bold and bright patterns.
A cool and trendy pair or two of sunglasses are essential summer wardrobe items. Sunglasses for men come in a wide range of styles, shapes and colours. Match them with what’s being worn or to suit a particular mood.
City gents would traditionally be seen carrying a briefcase and while this style of bag still has a place, there are a much wider selection of bags for men to choose from. Why not try a crossbody bag or a vintage satchel? It really depends on what he wants to carry in his bag as to the size you choose, and there are prices to suit all budgets.
There are more options for the style conscious man nowadays. They are now able to mix and match, and experiment with a wide range of colours as well as follow fashionable trends. No longer do they have to worry about wearing drab colours, and with the right selection of accessories, any outfit can be brought to life.
