One major change in the modern dapper gentlemen and how he dresses is the newfound acceptance and prevalence of men accessorizing. No longer reserved for ultra cool celebrities, the modern dapper is now to not leave the house without at least something to make your outfit pop. And there’s no better time to start trying out new accessories to bring the right kind of attention to your outfits with more and more fashion labels bringing out men’s fashion accessories.
Your accessorising does not have to be purely aesthetic it can be truly functional as well. A watch is the perfect wrist piece to wear at any occasion and keeps you from staring at your phone every two minutes to see whether the board meeting is over yet. If you’re wearing a watch for the first time try a simple dive watch, as they’re the most versatile and suitable with almost any outfit.
Do not forget during the harsh summer to protect your eyes with a pair of sunglasses, and be sure they match your face and outfit. One of the biggest turnaround trends at the moment is the resurgence of broad-brimmed hats. Keep the sun off your face and look stylish with a sleek and simple hat in a dark shade
Accessorising is a gradual thing; don’t feel as though you have to have every possible accessory on at once.
Take things slowly start off with something simple like a pocket square or tie bar and then as you grow confidence and interest try adding a few new items here and there.
Soon you’ll find your old everyday suiting outfit is more stylish than you would have ever thought.
Choosing the right accessories should enhance your outfit and your personal style, they shouldn’t overpower it. What’s too much? It’s a lot to do with confidence and your own perception.
The man who’s worn three rings on each hand his whole life won’t take much adjusting to start wearing a fourth but the man who’s never worn a ring before might be more hesitant. So it’s all about finding where you’re comfortable. But as a general rule less is more as each accessory will stand out greater on its own.
