Women have their purses, shoes, scarves and a million other chachkies that they carry, men on the other hand tend to be a little more refined and carefully curate what they’ll need based on the occasion. Whether you’re sitting pool side, hitting the gym, going on vacation or just heading in to work, each scenario requires a distinct set of accessories that help complete your look. From briefcases to coloured shoe laces, here’s your guide to some key men’s accessories you’ll need this summer, no matter where you’re going.
Summer is here, but is your style game up to par? We’ve given you tips on the hosttest style for this season from colourful chinos, to double breasted jackets but what about accessories? As with all things in fashion, it’s all in the details and having the right accessories to compliment your wardrobe is crucial. From watches to bags, our team of expert stylists have put together a great list of must-have summer accessories.
Jenna’s Picks: Daniel Wellington watches are great for summer because they go with everything. From tee’s and jeans to 3-piece suits. They are lightweight, non-pretentious and come with an array of interchangeable straps. What more could you ask for?!
Susanna’s Pick: Anderson’s belts are a great alternative to the traditional leather options in the market. These playful colours are sure you help you stand out of the crowd and brighten up any summer outfit. Wear them with a nice pair of chinos, loafers and short sleeve button up and you’re set to hit up any rooftop party this season.
Mallory’s Pick: Lets face it men rarely wear rings. But when Vitaly Design offers them an option made of both steel and ceramic its pretty hard to say no! These pieces are great because they can be worn individually or stacked together. I personally love seeing guys stack the 2-finger ring with a single.
Sam’s Picks: With nonstop torrential rains hitting this city, we don’t blame you for wanting to get away. These weekend bags are great for quick trips to the cottage or mini road-trip to anywhere that isn’t here. And if you’re a fitness buff, you can also double up these bags for the gym. Let’s face it, you can do way better than those monogramed “gym” bags.
Shae’s Pick: Knits are a great alternative to stuffy silk ties in the summer! Knit ties add summer zest to an office suit or dressed down for date night with a sport coat. Every man should own at least one.
