We can say that majority of men does not care much about fashion accessories but when men need to show up for events and special occasions we are sure that they are as passionate about getting the right accessories for their outfit as women are. In this post, we are going to talk about five accessories that tremendously underrated but they can be the game-changer or the highlight of an outfit. We are not going for the usual suspects such as watches, ties, necklaces, shoes, wallets or rings. These are what we call mainstream accessories. We rather talk about these five: cufflinks, bracelets, money clips, tie slides and lighters.
What are cufflinks? Essentially cufflinks will hold together and secure the buttons on a shirt around the wrist area. These accessories became famous, first of all, because they are practical. Men love practicality. Further on, cufflinks became more of a jewelry for men. These items can be made out of expensive materials like silver, gold, or diamond but stainless steel, as well. The cool thing about cuffs is that you can wear them with a suit or when you are wearing a shirt for the semi-formal look. Moreover, one can personalize cufflinks by engraving their initials, a symbol or an emblem
We talked about bracelets as one of the top accessories men can have in their jewelry box. We can also say that it is one of the most underrated items, as well. Depending on your style or the event you are attending, a bracelet can be your choice of accessory. Although, make sure you are not wearing cufflinks, rings, watch and bracelet. That can easily overwhelm the outfit. Be careful in your selection and match up the accessories to fit your style. A simple chain bracelet or bangle can do the trick. Maybe, go for a personalized bracelet that has your favorite quote on it.
Money clips are not even considered an accessory by many. But we do think this is an indispensable accessory for men when attending a formal event. Why, do you ask? Well, if you are attending a formal event, it is likely you need to wear a suit. And you know what does not go well with a suit? A wallet! It is just not comfortable and it also looks horrible. There are only a few options when it comes to putting a wallet away. You can put the wallet in your back or front pocket of your pants. Or you can keep it in the inside pocket of the jacket, which will make your chest to look uneven. What it the perfect alternative? Of course, a money clip. It will hold your money, credit card, driving license and your ID. Super practical and it looks good when you flash it in front of the crowd.
Also called, tie clip, tie clasp or tie bar, is a practical item so one clip his tie to the shirt, preventing the tie to swing around and keep it straight. This will prevent your tie hanging in a dish or a drink when leaning over. As all the accessories we listed until now, the tie clip comes in various types and can be personalized to your preference. This accessory is becoming more and more popular due to its practicality and the classic touch it gives to a formal look.
Last but not least, lighters. First of all, you do not have to be a smoker to have a lighter on you. Secondly, we are talking about stylish lighters, like Zippo lighters. These lighters are windproof and have style. Moreover, you can personalize it to your taste. You will never know when you might need a lighter. An engraved message can make it a perfect gift for him.
We selected these items because these accessories make an instant impact whenever a gentleman, like yourself, shows it off. The other reason we selected these accessories is because these items can be personalized, which ultimately makes even a bigger impact. Just imagine going out for a dinner party and wearing cufflinks with your initials on it. Boom! The subtle little detail that makes a huge impact.
We think these are the most underrated accessories for men. They are affordable, practical and stylish. What do you think?
