You might think that a guide to all the best "manly" accessories would be full of fancy watches and cufflinks, but you'd be surprised to learn that there are simple pieces you likely already own which you can get creative with to improve your look (and still have enough money in your wallet to buy actual groceries).
In this article, we will talk about the different types of accessories a man can wear, and how each can compliment an outfit respectively.
So get your notebook & pen out, and lets get right to it!
When and Why to Wear Men's Accessories
Accessories are like the finishing touches to an outfit - the cherry on top, the icing on the cake, the crux of the biscuit. You get the point. But why do people wear accessories? There are a variety of reasons:
1. Adding value to your outfit - some people like to invest in the finest jewelry because they want to make a statement.
2. For practical use - sometimes, it's not all about the look. Sunglasses could be a great addition to protect your eyes from the sun. Not to mention, you'll also look pretty cool.
3. For smell - fragrance is also an accessory. Smelling great is as important as looking great. Invest in some quality fragrances that you like. Watch Jeremy Fragrance on Youtube for all things perfume.
Necklaces are a great option for men. They can add instant style to pretty much any outfit you have in your wardrobe.
It is important to note what type of metal suits you best. Gold, silver, or stainless steel?
People with cooler skin tones are best suited with light metals like silver, platinum and white gold.
People with warmer skin tones look better in gold: rose gold, copper and brass metal.
People with neutral tones have it well either way.
Match all your metals. Avoid from mixing gold & silver, silver & stainless steel etc. Stick to one type of metal.
Also, necklaces have different chain types.

Apart from providing visual aid, glasses are a good way to spice up your look. You can definitely consider glasses without a degree, like this one.
Glasses have many shapes and sizes. It all depends on the shape and contour of your face.
Since each pair of glasses has a different use case, it truly depends on which you prefer to go with.
Rings are a great way to compliment your hand accessories. Though, there is some etiquette to follow when wear rings. The way you wear your rings could represent culture & tradition, religion or solemnity.
