Fashion Friday: How To Choose Accessories For Men


I’ve always been willing to try something new, challenge my own sensibilities of what compliments my personality. When I look at all the trends and different looks for the season, it’​s important for me  to filter them, translate them into what makes me look and feel great. Accessories are a little tricky for men, maybe you’re a cufflink guy or a tie bar person, but whatever accessories you choose make sure it fits you. Nothing is worse that a person translating a trend that doesn’t fit their lifestyle or personality.

Trends in men’​s fashion don’t change very often, so for me the trick in staying sharp are impeccable accessories. For guys it’​s a matter of nailing down the details. Think a little outside the norm. Deconstruct your wardrobe. For example, depending on the fabric, look at the vest of your three-piece suit as a separate accessory. What else can you wear it with? Can you add a pochette like you would a full-blown suit? Waistcoats on their own are a great alternative for men to express their personal style. Never copy anyone else’s style. Remember, the goal is to draw inspiration from the things around you and develop something fresh and new that’s complementary to your personality.  It’​s all about tweaking the details…for suit guys, a pop of color and pattern in the pocket square. Start with a piped one, then move on to pin-dots or a plaid pochette or even this killer one from Drake’s of London. For guys who are a little bolder or who like a little “flash”​, try lapel pins like this  from Bowties & Sneakers and Fine and Dandy  or silk knots, these pieces give a sport jacket or blazer a little personality and depth. Or how about a dash of flair for your tie bar. Maybe you’​re a little more “​Rock &​ Roll”​,  add a natural rustic leather bracelet (in moderation and age appropriateness of course) from Novica

I like to experiment with different looks, and you should too. Don’t be afraid to take some chances with texture, colour, and patterns in achieving a killer outfit for your personality. Remember, “​Style is Internal.”​
