“PEOPLE WILL STARE. MAKE IT WORTH THEIR WHILE.”
– HARRY WINSTON
Men’s accessories can take an outfit to a whole other level- make it go from 0 to Fab instantly and complete your look. Accessories for men tend to be ignored, but it is a new decade and I’m here to help you elevate your look with pieces that can add a touch of class, color and character to your 2020 look!
“Everyone looks at your watch and it represents who you are, your values and your personal style.”
— Kobe Bryant
An accessory that does not go out of style… a watch.
I’m from the school of having one good watch, meaning save your coins for this particular accessory amigo.
Although I have a few friends that have more than one less expensive watch to match with their particular outfit. The new skeleton watch trend continues to be strong and is not going anywhere on this new decade.
A watch (like a handbag on a woman) is something other people pay attention to. I recommend to have at least two watches – a casual one to wear daily and one for more formal and festive occasions.
Could your wrist use a little enhancement?
“Good memories are like charms…each is special. You collect them, one by one, until one day you look back and discover they make a long, colorful bracelet.”
Bracelets have exploded into popularity in the men’s fashion world. The beaded ones are proven to be one of the most versatile styles of bracelets.
One of the things that make these so popular is their affordability.
They come in many shapes and sizes and can easily be combined together. I suggest to get a couple of SETS: browns & cool tones like silver or black.
You can wear one or stack them for an extra effect!
Does this ring make me look engaged?
Men’s fashion rings will be a more common sight in 2020. The belief that the only ring a man should wear is a wedding band is gone and I’m not mad about it. These days there are a lot more masculine rings available which makes it easier for us to express our style. Large jewels, real or not, tend to look gaudy and are ultimately distracting from the rest of the outfit. Also, don’t over do it with a ring on every finger, you are not Liberace.
With rings, less is more.
“Sunglasses are like eye shadow: They make everything look younger and pretty”
They were created to protect our eyes from the sun, but sunglasses are both practical and timeless. During WW2 the invention of Pilot Glasses now called aviator glasses, became exceedingly popular for the entire duration- Classic, stylish, sexy… these are my favorite — or you can look at what’s trending in terms of shapes, colors and eras. Make sure you pick the right frames for your face shape, as rounder faces look better in glasses that are more rectangular, and faces with sharp features, such as a strong jawline, can more easily wear round glasses.
I will bring more accessories in future columns: belts, hats and scarves so stay tuned.
In the meantime don’t underestimate the power of wearing these fashion accessories as they can easily make or break our outfits and style.
