Men can no longer be left behind when it comes to accessorizing. No, not the heavy gold chains and bracelets which sometimes do the rounds in the name of snazz. We mean, classy, sophisticated, intriguing conversation pieces to upgrade your outfit from blah to ‘blew our mind’! Here are our favorites :
Brooches: Complete your royal Jodhpuri outfit with a brooch, or add one to your jacket and jeans to add the oomph or wear a matching brooch to the pocket square on your suit. There are plenty available from designers like Mrinalini Chandra, Vallya by Nitya or online stores like ebay and amazon.
Bow Ties: While James Bond in his well cut suit, crisp white shirt and bow tie might make us go weak in the knees; today, bow ties are not restricted to black tie events and special agents. Designers are putting out Clip On as well as Pre Tied Bow Ties to make this piece more easy to use. Available in several prints and colors, a bow tie can be worn with a formal shirt and trousers or even with jeans and a waistcoat.
Scarf & Pocket Square:If jewelry is not your thing, a pocket square can be a great way to add color and interest to your outfit. From international designers like Hermes to modest picks from Indian retail stores, you can choose to splurge or save on this piece.
Socks: Yes, this humble staple from your wardrobe has undergone a makeover! Today one can find candy colored, quirky prints, polka dots to chevron style socks and we love them all. Wear a hot pink colour socks with formal grey trousers and brown brogues and be the talk of the party. Or go for polka dotted ones with formal suits and see how women notice your sock game. Happy Socks and Footsy have interesting range of socks available online.
Suspenders: We want you to have these so we can steal them from your wardrobe! Just kidding. Everything vintage is making a comeback and so should suspenders. Plus they can be fun an playful, if you know what we mean :p.
Loafers, bow ties and suspenders. These boys are way too cool for school!
