Accessorising is something we need to do with smart and casual outfits. It might not be something that springs to mind for a man’s casual outfit but items like caps, beanies, sunglasses and wallets are all accessories. For the smarter outfit, things like ties, bowties, pocket squares, canvas and leather belts, hip flasks and cuff links all need to be thought about.
Once you’ve picked your outfit, you’re going to need a pair of men’s socks. As with all accessories these come in many varieties; sports socks, trainer socks, branded socks, plain monochrome or jazzy colours. Not to mention the various patterned and print image socks. It sounds trivial but the right pair of socks can set an outfit off.
When you’re at home chilling, nothing beats a pair of men’s slippers on a cold day! Great for when you get out of bed to keep your feet warm, super comfy when walking around on hard floors and, if you get a pair with hard bottoms, you can even take the bins out in them.
If you’re out walking in the country, tending to your allotment or garden or camping, a pair of men’s wellies is a must. Their ability to keep you dry and warm is why they’ve been a mainstay of every man’s wardrobe (or boot rack!) for hundreds of years, but don’t forget your warm socks to go with them.
Men’s smart shirts are both everyday wear and Sunday best! If you work in the type of environment where a shirt is compulsory, perhaps with a smart jacket, you need shirts that provide day-to-day comfort and wear and tear but that look the part, even at the end of the day. If you’re attending a formal event such as wedding, the shirt has to be crisp and sharp, even when you’ve got the tie around your head… And to go with the shirt you need some cufflinks – again, one of those items that can really set an outfit off. Finally, you need some men’s formal shoes. Your suit or trousers colour will define what colour your shoes are, but leather is a must for the formal shoe.
