The focus of this post is to highlight some men’s accessories, specifically: what kinds of accessories and how to wear them.
Some of me and Cy’s favorites are the basics—funky socks, patterned ties, and colored shoe laces. Me and Cy believe that men’s accessories serve a valuable purpose: to add a little flare and fun to your overall look. For example, earlier today I purchased a piece called an ascot (a smaller, broader neck tie) from our favorite clothing shop in Ann Arbor, Today Clothing.
Now, I knew what an ascot was from reading about them before, but I always had—until then—a misconstrued perception about them being an article of clothing that you could expect a yuppy butler to wear. WRONG. The particular ascot that I bought is a red-colored, patterned ascot made from a local craftsman.
When I put it on and tucked it into my denim jacket, I was stunned. It looked really dope because I had accents of red throughout my outfit—the Levi red tag on the jacket, and my red shoe laces. So, what I’m trying to say is that I think most accessories work best when they can compliment the other clothes that you’re wearing. In other words, peoples’ eyes will naturally coast from red-to-red throughout my outfit. Sounds silly, but try it out.
Some of my other favorite men’s accessories that I think are making a major resurgence into men’s fashion are pocket squares and tie clips. Both pieces can add great flare to your look. A proper pocket square can really add balance to a suit and tie ensemble, while a tie clip is a nice bling accessory that adds class to your tie and can really connect the ensemble.
These are little ideas and suggestions from us to consider. We challenge you to try them out. See what people think if you rock some of these items. We have received many compliments from pulling off some of these items and you can, too!
