Men, men and men…cant live with them or without them. Edgy accessories like bow ties to chelsea boots can make every man a clooney in no time 😉
TAKE A BOW
These stylish and upbeat bow ties are the dandy’s version of the skinny tie. And the best part is a ‘tux is not mandatory’.
Keep It Classic: To all the men, know that a subtly dotted bow tie with a tuxedo is error-proof.
Shine On: A silk lacquered bow tie adds zing to a formal ensemble.
Play It Up: Contrast bold patterns to always make a statement.
Focus Point: Make the bow tie the loudest part of your look. Pair a colorful one with an all-white or all-black ensemble.
Tone on Tone: Keep it cool with a same color bow tie as the shirt.
Pattern Profiles: Include patterns of varied sizes like: stripes, gingham, plaid, dot, paisley, houndstooth and herringbone etc.
GET THE BOOT
Sleeker and more modern than ever, the Chelsea boot works just as well with a suit as it does with beat-up jeans.
The right pair of pants is key
Wear pants with a narrow bottom, so that the pants sit tight, just a little way up the leg of the boot. You need to see just enough of the elastic gusset to know it’s a Chelsea boot – otherwise it just looks like a very plain shoe.
Invest in shoe trees
They help shoes keep their shape and also stop them from cracking because the leather doesn’t crease as it dries out. If you can, try to find trees with a high instep, as the Chelsea’s shape is all about that gorgeous curve running up the front of the boot from the toe.
COLOR ME LAD
It’s all about color for menswear designers these days. And most luxury lines have taken to pastels specifically, offering jackets in lilac and mint. Besides being impeccably cut, their distinctive hues will look good at a brunch or a dinner party.
A bag is such a functional thing, that most men can’t do without one nowadays. Look at your life – do you walk around with an iPad, a wallet, files – and then work to make yourself a bag. The simpler, the better. You can get yourself a black soft leather tote in deerskin with a little tubular handle, and it’s really beautiful too.
