Today’s fashion world might be fast paced, but there’s no excuse for men to slip up in the trendiness stakes. The age-old adage that women should spend more time on their appearance than men is now practically obsolete. But forget about the cult of the metrosexual: it doesn’t have to take time or money to look good in men’s clothes. All you need is the choice items in your existing wardrobe and a few of this season’s must-have clothing accessories, and you’ll be well on your way to adopting your own distinct sense of fashion.
For starters, choose the right men’s bag. A functional, yet stylish, bag is a clothing accessory in which many men will do well to invest: for instance, choose a large canvas or leather hold-all and you’ll have the perfect bag to take on business trips or weekend breaks away with your partner. Moreover, a canvas hold-all is a trendier alternative to a rucksack and a preferable alternative for many men who’d rather not carry a tote or a camera bag.
It’s equally important to choose the right hat with which to accessorise your clothes. A plain white visor or printed cap, for instance, could be perfect additions to a simple t-shirt and jeans combo, while a jet black trilby would be the ideal way to finish off an outfit on a big night out. Make sure you establish which hats look best on which face-shapes before making a purchase, however: if you’re simply not a hat-person then it’s best to steer clear of them. Similarly, watch which hats you pair with which items of clothing: a trucker cap worn with an oversize white t-shirt and baggy jeans will likely look more K-Fed than drop dead.
