There is not much variety for a man´s wardrobe, as you know; it’s not as diverse as it is for women. If we are talking about classic clothes, the possibilities of there being a variety in blazers and pants are slim.
Fortunately, accessories can help us, from ties to cufflinks, to maintain a personalized style. Here we have a series of elements that are essential in order to define the masculine wardrobe:
The tie is an accessory that is the symbol for the formal menswear. The designs and overall patterns which you can choose from are many: From the silk fabrics, like a classic black tie, which we should all have in our wardrobe, to the more common striped patterns, generally defined by diagonal stripes of different colors, to reach the polka dots and the trimming, often with plaid, windowpane or with the brand’s logos.
Cufflinks add a personal style to the shirts: there are many types and designs. You can find some made of fabric, more casual, and in every color possible, often in two-tones, in order to combine them with the pocket square, and the tie or shirt. They can be made of metal or have a chain link between the two disks. They are ideal for tuxedos.
Ones that can really make you stand out are those that are personalized with your initials or a symbol that represents you.
Usually made of silk, a pocket square is basically a small handkerchief that is placed in the breast pocket to add some personality to the blazer.
As a matter of fact this little piece of fabric is one of the most elegant accessories in a man’s wardrobe. You can combine it with your tie or without it during the summer. Remember to always match it to the color-scheme of your outfit, but never choose the same patterns.
