If you’re looking for a way to get a drab outfit to stand out, consider accessorizing it. Whether you’re a man or woman, the right accessories will get heads to turn your way. If you’re a man who craves attention, then consider adding these accessories to your wardrobe.
Wear the Right Shoes
Many men only have sneakers or dress loafers in their closet to wear with a suit for special occasions. However, they have many more styles of shoes from which to choose. They can also choose from more colours than black or brown.
If boots are more your style, you can also choose from an array of dress boots for work or important events. Some of the shoes and boot styles you should consider are:
- Saddle Shoes
- Dress Boots
- Western Boots
If you cannot find the right shoe size, consider getting custom shoes, so they fit correctly and comfortably on your feet.
For men who are balding or always wearing a cap, baseball caps are not appropriate as work wear, unless it is casual Friday. Like shoes, hats come in many styles and colours. Trade your old Yankees or Cubs cap for hats like:
- Flat Caps
- Pork Pie Hats
- Derby Hats
- Panama Hats
If you’re going to invest in hats, then buy hat boxes, leather cleaner for leather hats, or a brush to get rid of dust and debris, so your hats always look great.
Dress the Eyes
For men that have beautiful eyes, don’t hide them behind eyeglass frames if you need corrective lenses. Instead, wear contacts so that you can show your eyes off to the world.
Contact lenses have come a long way, with many disposable options, so that you can find the perfect pair to help you see clearly.
If you haven’t had an eye exam in a long time, make an appointment with an optician to get the right prescription for contacts. While you can buy them at most large pharmacies, you can order contact lenses online and choose from a larger variety of brands.
Take Work Home in Style
Although most laptops will fit in an attaché or book bag, you can damage your device by not having proper protection for it.
Many laptop bag designs have padding to help protect the laptop and the computer accessories you need for it, like jump drives.
Whether you prefer leather, fabric, or polycarbonate laptop cases, you have a large variety from which to choose.
You can find bags that are appropriate for busy students or professionals and which can carry your laptop and the essays or presentations that you need to bring with you as well.
Get a Grown-Up Coat
For men who wear a suit or dress shirts with slacks to work every day, they shouldn’t wear their jacket from college or a puffy coat unless it is bitterly cold. On fall and winter days, look for long coats that can keep you warm when outside or coats that are longer than your suit jacket.
Most top, duffle, or peacoats contain wool, cashmere, alpaca, or acrylic blended with other materials to create warm, handsome-looking outerwear.
Wear your ski jacket on the slopes or your bomber jacket with jeans and find something that looks more fitting to work.
By paying attention to the accessories you wear with your clothes, you can make an ordinary outfit look extraordinary.
