Don't Underestimate Accessories
Why they play a major role in your style.
How’s it going? staying dapper? I hope you are! 💪
So this week, I’m lifting the lid on perhaps the easiest way to add style to your look.
They are a great way to express your style and enhance your overall fashion sense.
From classic watches to stylish hats, there are numerous accessories that can add a touch of flair to any of your outfits.
Let’s dive straight in and explore ways in which you can use accessories to elevate your fashion game! 😎
We start with one of my favourites.
Watches are a timeless accessory that you must have in your wardrobe. If you don’t, get yourself one.
Not only will they add a touch of sophistication to your outfits, but they are also functional.
As you will know, there are a wide variety of watches available, from classic leather strap watches to modern smartwatches.
Remember, there is no hard and fast rule about which style you should opt for. Choose a watch that speaks to your style.
TOP TIP 1: A metal wrist watch will go well with almost any outfit (not a sports outfit though!). Treat it as a statement piece.
TOP TIP 2: If you do prefer a leather strap watch, match its colour with another piece in your outfit. Not with your top/shirt/sweatshirt though, as it sits too close to your watch, blends in, and doesn’t allow for the separation of colour.

Don’t follow the crowd by keeping your sunglasses locked away until the Summer.
As we begin to enter the latter stages of Winter, sunnier days (while still chilly) will become more frequent.
So it’s the perfect time to stand out from the crowd with a pair of sunglasses.
Again, similar to what I mentioned about watches, try your best to match the colour of your sunglasses with another piece in your outfit.
TOP TIP: If you don’t fancy wearing them all the time whilst out and about, simply tuck them over your top. This way, they are still on show and part of your outfit.
I have to be honest, aside from woolly hats in the winter, I don’t wear hats myself.
However, I know that a lot of guys dig them! You might too, hence why I’ve included them in this.
No doubt, hats offer versatility as an accessory that can enhance the visual appeal of your outfits.
With an array of options from fedoras to baseball caps, there is a diverse selection of hats to choose from.
Depending on the desired effect, hats can be used to either add an air of sophistication or to create a more casual appearance.
As I always say, make sure to choose a hat that complements your personal style. Hats are great for colour matching too!

I love a stylish belt.
Belts are not just a functional accessory, but they have an immense ability to add style to your outfits.
But remember, you can only be stylish with a belt if it’s visible and not hidden under your shirt/top. Simply tuck some or all of your shirt/top into your pants so that your belt is exposed.
Also, allow yourself to be flexible in choosing the material of your belt(s). It doesn’t really matter which you opt for.
TOP TIP: Choose a belt that matches the colour of your shoes/sneakers or your watch.
BEFORE YOU HEAD OFF…
Remember, it’s not just items of clothing that determine your style.
Accessories can be just as effective if combined well with your outfit.
So, why not start accessorising this week?
Good luck and stay dapper! 💪
