The In’s & Out’s of Men’s Accessories
Nov 04, 2014 03:58 PM Back

Accessories are the secret weapon of a well-dressed man. They are those special hand-picked items that give you that snazzy polished look. Which favorite accessories give you your exclusive style?

It doesn't matter if you're wearing a suit or sporting a casual style – you're not dressed completely until you accessorize.

Now, men's accessories are those essential extras you slip on before heading out the door: Masculine watches, cufflinks, ties, tie bars, pocket squares, hats, scarves, briefcases, shoes/socks, belts, and favorite jewelry.

Ah, remember the great debonair men of the silver screen, those Hollywood icons; their appearance was impeccable with stylish accessories from head to toe. So, it's just seems natural that men reprise wearing unique accessories to create that classy style. For them, jazzing up their image is an expressions of individuality and personality – giving them a way to stand out in the crowd.


Your watches should match your lifestyle. If you're the kind of guy that wears a suit to work every day your watch needs to reflect that lifestyle. That doesn't mean you have to have one that is super expensive with complicated features. It means, select a watch that fits your dress style and occasion.

If you're more the creative or active type – have fun with the style of watch you wear. Try an edgy or sporty brand for a fun, yet charismatic style.

Some guys like the mix of eclectic and traditional styles, thus pairing a leather, beaded, or metal bracelet next to their watch.

Ties, Tie Bars, Cufflinks

Guys, here is where you really shine and give a lasting impression. Ties, tie bars, and cufflinks are vital essential accessories – so don't be cheap. Be picky and select quality ties that are silk and are well-made. Ties are meant to enhance your outfit, not stand out.

Tie bars complete the total look of a classy tie – adding that extra dapper appearance. You don't have to go crazy buying all kinds. If your have three sharp looking tie bars and three sets of cufflinks, you're ready to go to any event.

Try to keep your wardrobe filled with a silver, gold, and one colored tie bar. Check out Karako's cool tie bars in fun shapes like glasses, guns, scissors, and fountain pens.

Cufflinks are those polished accessories that give a guy that extra edge. Have at least three sets in a mix of silver, gold, and black.

Shoes, Socks, Belts

Really, these are accessories. Simply, when choosing these clothing items wisely, the colors will complement your outfit and give you an awesome pulled together presence. It's sort of like adding polish to a car.

The modern well-dressed man should always have updated shoes. Meaning, they should have a slim profile, rounded toe, and always be polished. If you're still walking around in the squared toe shoes from a few years ago, it's about time to buy some new ones.

For belts, the easy to follow rule is belts and shoes should be on the same page when it comes to color and style. Now, socks are another story. Men, today are wearing socks of all colors, patterns, and designs. It's almost a sign of their individuality and somewhat a rebellious nature. But if you're attending a formal or somewhat traditional setting, it's advised to match your socks to your pants.

Pocket Squares

You wouldn't think such a small piece of fabric could make such a huge difference in your appearance. Pocket squares are those handsome fashionable square fabric pieces that are folded and tucked into the breast pocket of a man's suit coat.

They add pizzazz to any suit with a splash of color and exceptional style, even jazzing-up a sedate suit.

The next time you get dressed think of adding accessories to your outfit. Even if it's a jean day or a casual weekend, add those fun and funky accessories that show off your personality.

Karako understands the 21st Century man who wants to look stylish and unique every time he steps out day or night. Stay in the know! Check out our weekly blog post for more tips, ideas, and stylish trends.
