Published on 10 August 2021 at 11:06

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.


1. Hand Size. If your hands are small, you should wear smaller ringers. If your hands are large, wear larger rings.

2. Balance Your Jewelry & Accessories. You don't want to overcrowd a hand with jewelry. Sometimes less is more.

3. Match Rings To Metal Accessories. You should always keep to the rule of wearing one type of metal at a time. If you're wearing gold, then the rest of your accessories need to be in gold too.


Apart from keeping your pants from falling to your knees. Usually worn in a formal setting,  belts can be a great way to add some class to your outfits.

It's important to note that your belt colour should match your shoes.

Black belt with black shoes, brown belt with brown shoes.  

This is not a hard rule to follow and can greatly enhance any of your outfits.

Belts are a great staple to invest in as you find that they'll last you for a very long time so it won't be hard to grow a collection of different colours.

Ties & Scarves

Ties are a gentleman’s delight and, believe it or not, your choice of tie in close to natural language.

Choose a tie that has the right colors if you want to express happiness or opt for a patterned tie for a touch of creativity.

Scarves are undoubtedly the male accessory that goes hand in hand with ties. A scarf is often considered an art medium, which gives you an immediate advantage when it comes to fashion.

You can use your scarf in different ways and wear it in an infinite variety of styles.  


One of the most important accessories that you should invest in is a watch.

They are classy and versatile, thus making them one of the best investments in your wardrobe.

You can choose from a variety of brands, materials, colors, shapes and sizes.

Plus, they will last you for many years, so consider buying a high-quality one.
