It’s usually the smallest details that matter the most, and the same can be said about men’s accessories. Finding the right men’s accessories can often feel like trying to solve those seemingly easy puzzles that somehow end up being a surprising head scratcher. Our advice? Be intentional and go for the big picture. Start with the corners and then the border before you try to fill in the landscape with 100s of identical, vaguely green pieces. Remember, accessories are more than just the finishing touch, sometimes they’re the glue that brings the whole ‘fit together (no pressure). And almost always, accessories bring that added dose of utility.
Here’s a few ways how: 1. Find a sturdy, neutral leather belt to break in day-by-day that pairs well with just about everything—all while keeping your pants up 2. Get a classic style of polarizing sunglasses to (safely) enjoy the sun and look good doing it. 3. Swing a scarf around your neck and slide on some thick wool gloves when you can start to see your breath outside. You get the point. The best accessories are functional and timeless because you need them. It’s not all about utility though. If you find that perfect bracelet or necklace to complete an outfit, we dig it. Keep it simple and you will have an infinite number of outfit combinations to test out.
There are a few fundamental accessories that everyone should have at their disposal. You may not need a scarf, but everyone needs a good wallet. Whether you’re strictly cards or a cash-carrying enigma, keep it all stashed in one place with the Stonewashed Titanium Wallet + Money Clip from The Ridge. It’s a minimalist’s wallet at heart, and the tough exterior will keep your hard-earned money protected. And nothing really beats the look of a classic leather belt, so check out Flint and Tinder’s Made in the USA 365 Belt. It ages with you and the full-grain leather will last forever. As for frames, the classics will always be in style, so find something like the rectangular frames of the Sunseekers Sunglasses from Huckberry. Wear ‘em for any occasion, and when the golden hour shines a little brighter, snag some polarized lenses to enhance your visibility and your look.
