Accessories pull a man’s entire look together.  Everything from your watch to your belt helps complete the outfit.

Watches serve two purposes, style and time.  It is always important to know the time, but most of us men pull out our cell phones before we look at our wrist watch.  So then why do we wear watches?  Watches are for looks more than telling time now-a-days.  They portray the type of person we are from classy to sporty to even trendy.  Pick your style and buy a watch that fits your personality because women do notice the little things.  A man should always have a least two watches; a dressy watch and a casual watch.  Just like shoes you wear the appropriate watch for the occasion.  The dress watch should consist of silver of gold, a classy look with no bright colors for the face. 

The casual watch should fit your style whether it is sporty, trendy, fashionable, or sleek, make it your own.  This watch should tell people something about you.

Here are a few examples:

Fossil Textured Silver Dial - Womens Casual Leather Watch   Fossil Dish Digital - Black - Starck Watch    Fossil Silver Dial - Mens Metal Dress Watch

Belts and Buckles:  These accessories help with making the outfit flow from top to bottom.  Since every man should own a pair of brown and black shoes, they should also own a belt of both colors to match.  The reversible belts: great idea… horrible taste.  Buy two belts please.  The belt should be at least 1 inch wide, the skinny belts don’t help separate the pants from the shirt.  If you want to add a little class to your look add a chrome belt buckle to really make the look shine.

I hate to say it, but belt buckles are in style and are a great accessory. 

Hats are for all types of reasons, occasions and miscellaneous uses.  Hats can be for covering up your hair when you don’t feel like combing your hair or for when you’re headed to a ball game in the sun.  Hats are for purpose and style.  Make sure you hat is communication with your clothes.  Your hat must match what you’re wearing, in terms of colors, style and functionality.  There are all kinds of hats, find hats that work for you and add character to your outfit.

Shoelaces Hold a Man Together

Shoes are a very important part of the style you are trying to achieve in an outfit.  Shoes portray the type of man you are to a woman.  Believe it or not, many women judge a man on his shoes.  Women check a man out from head to toe, ending at the shoes.  That is why the right shoes need to make a lasting impression, sending their eyes back up for a second look.  You only have a few seconds to capture their attention, don’t blow it with the shoes.

There are many types of shoes out        Free Shipping at
there and you need to find the shoes         
that fit you and not just your feet. 
Different occasions require different shoes. I am not saying you need 50 pairs of shoes like women, you just a few different styles that are still in style.  Every man should have a least 5 pairs of shoes.

A nice pair of Athletic shoes – for playing sports and working out.  These shoes should only be worn when participating in sports or some type of activity.  These shoes can be worn during the summer when you out in the sun wearing shorts.  Never should they be worn out to dinner or a club.  They are considered eyesores in the evenings, especially at a bar.  Some clubs won’t even let you in if you’re wearing athletic shoes. 

A clean pair of casual shoes – for day events and wearing around the town.  These shoes should be very comfortable because these should be your main shoes.  The trick is to find a pair that is comfortable but still fashionable.  These shoes should not contain a lot of color.  They should be black or white.  If white, keep them clean.  They are many designers out there to choose from find a pair that match your style.

A casual pair of sandals. – for those nice days in the sun.  Sandals can be worn with shorts and pants.  The only place they shouldn’t be worn is to a formal occasion.

A pair of black dress shoes – for going out on the town.  These shoes should be worn on dates, to dinner, and to nice occasions.  I refer to these shoes as your power shoes, the female version of the high heel.  These are the shoes that are going to get girls attention at the bars. Trust me.  These shoes should be worn with a black belt and when wearing pants, never shorts.  Keep them shiny. 

A pair of brown dress shoes – very similar to the black dress shoes but they are for a more casual night on the town.  The black shoes are your power shoes, the brown shoes are your casual shoes.  These shoes should be worn on similar occasions as the black ones but only when wearing lighter colored materials.  A brown belt should also be worn while sporting your brown dress shoes.

 In a future blog I will discuss clothing color management, which will cover what colors should be worn with black accents or brown accents.  Accents referring to shoes and belts.
