Accessorising your clothes can be a great way to alter and improve your current style, but it can also be a way to totally destroy an outfit. There are so many different types of accessories but there is a fine line between doing it right and doing it very wrong. We must all understand the pitfalls and try to avoid them.
One of the main pitfalls when it comes to accessorising is the overload. Aim to keep things subtle because there is no need to pile on one item after another. Necklaces and bracelets are the most common forms of accessory for the younger generation. These two items can add some style and twist to your outfit depending on the basic look you are trying to achieve for that day. If you are on your way to a job interview with your best suit on, there is no need for a wrist full of beads, or three overlapping necklaces poking through your shirt. This is where an understanding of good fashion really does help.
Causal accessories work well in a casual environment, so adding some colour to a jeans and tee-shirt look might work well in your favour. Inhale Fashion believes that experimenting with accessories can be great addition to an outfit but it does not need to be forced. The most stylish accessory for all ages is the ‘Watch’. When wearing any watch make sure that the watch is left untroubled. Your watch should stand out on its own so make sure you do not try to blend it in with bracelets or beads on the same wrist. Another stylish accessory that can add a touch of class to any outfit is the pocket -square. Pocket squares come in various colours and pattens and fit neatly into your blazer top pocket. Whilst a white pocket square is normally reserved for more formal occasions, pocket squares in other colours can be worn even when simply wearing a blazer and tee-shirt. In most cases try to match the colour of your pocket square with the colour of your shirt, or your tie if you are wearing one.
The earring is another accessory that has always been an option for men. Earrings on men can look great if they are done right. Try to stay away from anything too big or chunky. The old cubic zirconia’s that used to turn green after a month should be banished forever.
Fashion should be fun and accessorising is very much apart of that fun even for guys. The Inhale Fashion gent should not be competing to have the most accessories in the room. Keep things simple and keep it moving.
