A gentleman’s wardrobe is indeed a work of art and reflects someone’s work ethic. The contents of the wardrobe separates the real men from the rest and for many men, coming up with the right wardrobe can be a huge challenge to fathom. It’s really never easy and to some people, it may appear like it’s time wasting. However, after you have had the right items together, building the right wardrobe is easy. And surely accessories play a very important role in doing so. I chose some unique accessories to feature here, some of them are unique in their own way and we think twice before incorporating them in out outfit. So here is a guide to use these beautiful pieces of art.
I am not going to talk about the basics which we all own. From belts to socks to bags, we know how to use them very well. Let’s take a notch above the basics and try to use some of the below features pieces.
Other than providing you protection against the suns rays, sunglasses also add a touch of style. There are many styles that are available and one of the best is the aviator frames. But let’s try something vintage this time. Pataaka has some amazing sunglasses and I chose these Vintage Tea ones. You can check them out here. It’s stylish and adds a retro touch to whatever you wear.
2. Bow Tie
Bow-tie can prep up any outfit, if worn rightly with colors and patterns. You can pair it up with an elegant slim cut suit, be it corporate affair or an evening out. Even a tailored blazer is apt for the look. But these days we have so many options available. From the ready made bow ties to the classic self ties, they are available in prints, different textures and materials. I chose a bright comic print bow tie from Pataaka. As its printed and quirky, I paired it with a classic blue shirt and ripped black denims. Not every bow tie is for black tie event after all.
Men’s suspenders can either be a hit or a miss. There are many ways you can wear suspenders and in many colors also. Suspenders usually give off that snazzy, trendy, casual, hipster look, but it can also achieve that sexy business attire look if you play your suits right. I chose the polka dotted suspender to keep the quirk factor alive. Try it with basic solid shirts at a party or even to work on a Friday.
Brooches are always considered as a women’s accessory. But gone are the days and today it’s one of the most selling accessories online. Pataaka has a range of such brooches which you can try on your blazers or waistcoats. Add a little spunk to a boring outfit by just adding one or may be two.
Another unique way of wearing these collar pins is using it on your shirt collar. It looks like a collar pin cum brooch and looks fashionable. Try it out with your basic shirts and make an impact.
There you have it, some easy style tweaks you can make to your wardrobe and outfits to help create a truly unique personal style. These accessories can make or break any outfit so be careful in choosing the right ones for the right occasion.
