How Men’s Accessories Can Make or Break a Look

List: Posted: 12/10/10

Accessories are anything that a man carries or wears. So, what kind of accessories belong in every man’s wardrobe?


When it comes to hats, one trend that just won’t quit is the ski cap, which is now worn by young men even on the hottest of days. However, for a far more timeless hat, think more along the lines of a fedora.


A wallet is one of those accessories that no man can live without. The trend has been toward wallets that go in the front pocket, so that the back pocket doesn’t get worn, and so that a heavy wallet doesn’t cause posture and back problems while seated. A wallet is also safer in the front pocket.


A briefcase is no longer considered a must-have on the list of accessories for men, because sleek phones and smaller gadgets have taken the briefcase’s place. In fact, a briefcase now looks out of place in some situations.


Classic watches and leather belts are staples. If you can’t afford a Rolex, you can find one with similar styling at a much lower price in any department store. A belt is one of those very obvious accessories that a man wears, so make sure yours are all in good condition. A worn belt is simply unattractive. L
ong socks are also important.

The little details in a man's apparel accessories can make or break an entire look, so be sure to choose carefully.
