Yes, it’s currently winter gents; however spring is just around the bend which means one thing – warmer weather is on its way!
However, with the warmth comes the battle of attempting to dress sharp without sweating excessively. As the hotter months begin to arrive, men all around are reaching to the back of their wardrobes for the timeless combination of chinos paired with a polo.
If you’re anything like me, you like to stand out from the crowd and to do this you need to accessorize!
Accessories are essential to any outfit. Not only can an accessory bring an outfit together, but it also allows you to get creative with your outfit and express yourself.
If the thought of this makes you anxious, don’t worry. We’ve got a list of accessories you need to get for your wardrobe before spring hits.
Although we are currently in a time where lugging cash around is rarely required, that does not imply you need to avoid the natural leather wallet.
A leather wallet resembles a great wine – it improves with age which’s specifically why this is just one of the most important accessories to have this spring.
Although you can’t spot a man’s leather wallet at first glance, you will gain a feeling of sophistication and elegance carry this thing around in your pocket and when you take out your crisp, leather wallet to make a purchase you’ll be sure to turn some heads.
A watch is something all men should own, because not only is it an extremely useful accessory but it is also very versatile. A great men’s watch can be paired well with an informal look or a suit and tie, transitioning with ease.
There are several different designs, colours and brands so when it comes to choosing the right watch the whole process can be quite overwhelming. It basically boils down to two alternatives – leather or metal?
After you’ve decided this then you can start thinking about style, colour and shape of your dream watch!
In terms of the colour of leather watches, it is typically best to select either a black, brown or neutral colour which means that it will go with absolutely everything in your wardrobe and you’re more likely to wear it every day.
However in regards to steel watches, silver and gold are both sophisticated options and will never go out of style!
A great belt could last a life time if cared for well and if you’re not looking after your belts then you need to reevaluate because a good belt does not just simply hold your trousers up but more often than not they tie together your whole outfit.
A leather belt is an outright need for every well-dressed man. Like a good watch, a belt is never going to be outdated which means that you need to try and purchase one that’s going to last.
When it comes to picking a colour, it is safest to tick with a neutral shade once again. This just ensures ease and convenience when putting an outfit together and avoiding unwanted colour clashes.
In terms of buckle selection it’s often best to go with something simple and traditional. This just ensures you’ll get the most wear out of it. However, if you are feeling confident and creative go for something more original!
If you’re not currently wearing sunglasses, let me introduce you to your new best friend.
Sunglasses don’t just assist you with your sight on those perfectly brilliant spring days, they are also an excellent method to conceal those undesirable dark circles that commonly impend under your eyes the morning after. It’s okay, we’ve all been there!
It can be difficult in terms of choosing the right sunglasses that compliment both your style and shape of your face! Therefore it’s best to go with a pair of sunglasses that you like and feel most comfortable with.
You can’t go wrong with timeless designs like the Clubmasters or the Aviator, so if you’re struggling to choose a style they are always safe options. Like always, picking a neutral tone will be your best bet so search for a black, brown or tortoise shell design
