To me, being creative with accessories as a part of your outfit will help you stand out. Here’s my quick guide for what kind of accessories to keep top of mind.
I always wear a watch with my outfit, whether I’m dressing up professionally or casually. Sometimes (but not always), I’ll try to match my watch with the color of my shoes. That’s not a hard rule though. I just pick what I think looks good with the outfit I’m wearing. In my opinion, a watch adds a sense of elegance to a man. Depending on what kind you wear, you can go with a style that makes you appear powerful or a style that is trendy.
Sneakers lighten up the formality of your outfit. I’m a huge fan of wearing sneakers with business casual or business professional clothing. In the West Coast, there is no real “business suit” in the workplace anymore. Everyone wears jeans and hoodie at work these days! If you’re a classic Gent and you don’t want to come off a certain way, consider wearing sneakers with your suit.
I have to wear a pocket square with my sport coat or suit jacket! The pocket feels empty otherwise. I know plenty of guys who prefer to keep it empty. I have no problem with that because it does resemble classic style, but I also know guys who are lazy. This essential accessory will make your outfit look more complete!
