Most Americans out there feel dissatisfied with how they dress. Add on to this the fact that most people haven’t made many public appearances as a result of the COVID 19 pandemic, and you have a difficult state of fashion.
Men already have it tough when it comes to fashion — they have fewer options than women because a level of restraint is important to look masculine.
However, if you want to take full advantage of the changing fashion trends, you have to start looking at men’s accessories. This article will walk you through some of the best.
Styles come in and out of fashion all the time. However, since the 1950s and 60s, fashion has had more of a bent towards the world of streetwear. Jeans, t-shirts, and general casual styles are considered the height of fashion, and except for high-brow occasions, being “overdressed” is usually passe.
However, this might not be true anymore. Many key figures in the fashion industry believe that streetwear is soon to die out. Rising out of this will be more formal styles that still keep it cool.
We recommend rocking a tie — much like the jazz musicians of the 50s and 60s. Combine the buttoned-up tie look with some contemporary shirts pants, and you’re bound to look great.
If you’re considered about staying masculine, remember that ties are great men’s suit accessories.
- A Classy Scarf
If streetwear is set to peter out in the next ten years, minimalism is as well. Men, inspired by retro outfits of previous generations, are going to put together opulent but masculine outfits that truly make their fashion shine.
We recommend getting yourself a one-colored scarf. A cream-colored scarf can work wonderfully in contrast to a mostly black outfit. However, if you wish to go with a more rustic look, you can combine patterns with more rustic tones.
Scarves are compact and make ideal travel accessories for men.
- Dress Shoes
In allegiance with the above observations about fashion, we recommend you wear dress shoes for many occasions. Dress shoes can class up the most casual outfit — wearing them on the bottom of chinos and a t-shirt can turn heads, especially if you have on other accessories.
- A Nice Watch
A great watch is yet another thing that can transform your standard outfit into something fantastic. Tons of people focus on wearing great belts, and the right watch paired with a belt can truly make an outfit shine.
In the post-streetwear world, it’s going to pay yet again to look classy. We recommend a Tissot, watches that work well and also show off your fashion sense.
Understand Men’s Accessories
Men’s accessories are tough to navigate. However, if you can optimize your use of ties, classy scarves, dress shoes, and watches, you can meet this new wave of fashion with an unrestrained level of class.
