Accessories Make the Man

Or at the very least, make you appear like you ‘know what you are doing.’

Yesterday, when creating outfits for a client, she looked in the mirror and said, ‘Oooh, this looks really good together; I wouldn’t have thought of this.’ To which I responded, ‘Yes (!) this scarf with that bag just makes you looks more interesting…like you know what you are doing.’ At some point, we’ve all had a moment where we wanted to look interesting—set apart (in a good way).

For women, there are a million + ways to accomplish this. For men, not as many…but I’ve been discovering accessories that are giving guys more ways to add interest, for when they walk into a room. Below are a few examples—a mixture for many different tastes!

Denim ties: Take a look at the raw edges.

    Those ties are incredible! Absolutely love the quirky designs. Nice blog too, there aren’t enough fashion resources for blokes I don’t think!
