A Wooden Watch
It used to take a certain kind of man — an outdoors-y, mountain-climbing, manly one — to rock a wooden watch. Those days are far behind us, with the wooden watch trend expanding by the season. Not only can they make every look fashion-forward (with a dab of dapper), they are insanely comfortable to wear.
Bowties were once reserved for movie sets, your grandfather’s smoking club, and Bill Nye, but they’ve found their way into the closets of some of the best-dressed gents, so much so that they’ve become a «new» fashion staple. For a black tie moment or a first date, a bowtie can mean great self-expression through fashion.
Blue Suede Shoes
Argue with Elvis? Go ahead, I dare you! Blue has pulled head-to-head with classic black as the go-with-everything color, and suede is a go-with-everything material. Wear your blue suede shoes casual with no sock and a cuffed pant, or dress them up with some slacks — either way, listen to your inner King!
Scarves are no longer just for winter. With fashion house after fashion house offering a variety of materials and prints for their spring 2015 collections, a scarf is a tasteful way to complete an outfit. In certain cases, just throwing a scarf over your shoulders gives you a certain air, dare I say, presence.
Get ready for props from every human being with functional eye sight and at least one iota of good taste. Tweed blazers almost demand respect for the wearer. They can be worn through ¾ of the year (never in summer) and are arguably the most affordable jacket for the fashion weight they carry.
Details make outfits. They separate the well-dressed from the dressed well. Nothing says you have individual taste like the presence of a pocket square. They are abundant, inexpensive, and will give every outfit the splash of Dean Martin every guy I know wouldn’t mind.
Belts are functional and fine, but suspenders are FUN! They can be worn with any pant, slack or even shorts (depending on your bravery). They have a certain «nerd chic» that’s defined the last 5 years of fashion-forward style, and again, they’re fun! Don’t be afraid to wear them any way that fits your personal style. Trust me, it only makes them better.
These seven essentials will always bring out the best of your personal style, while making you look and feel confident and on-trend, even trailblazing. So how many of these essentials live in your wardrobe?
