Unless you live on a beach, it’s hard to get out of wearing pants, a shirt and shoes on a daily basis. Accessories, on the other hand, are items you wear for one of two reasons: because they perform some sort of practical function, like a belt that holds up your pants, or because they enhance your outfit stylistically, like a killer leather cuff or a bit of bling. When it comes to fashionably standing out in a crowd, it’s the latter category of accessory that can really make your outfit pop.
From cufflinks to cell phones, the accessories you choose to wear or carry can have a dramatic impact on your appearance; they make your look truly yours. Though many men may not realize it, accessories perk up even the most basic ensembles, making tried- nd-true wardrobe staples look fresh again. So, instead of overhauling your wardrobe several times a year, simply have a quick browse through our accessories features every now and again to ensure your style is always up to date, but that your wallet remains heavily padded.

MEN’S ACCESSORIES FACT
Though in ancient times neckwear often signaled social status, it was during the Thirty Years’ War (1618-1648) that neckties became a thing of fashion. When Serbian mercenaries in the French service of the Military Frontier wore traditional knotted neckerchiefs, the Parisians went crazy for them. Soon afterward, men and women across Europe started sporting fabric around their necks.
