Regardless of your age, lifestyle, and occupation, there are certain accessories every man should have in their wardrobe. That’s not to say you should wear them every day, but an occasion will come along when they’ll be essential. Pay attention to the following list and you’ll be glad you took notice. And once you’ve invested in them, they’ll last a lifetime.

Being able to dress well is key to the way you feel. It also plays a big part in life, leisure, and business. If you want your wardrobe to stay fresh and up to date, the right accessories are essential. If you’re going for a trendier look, step up your game by trying something new like a dog tag necklace or a black cuff bracelet.
Here are the essential accessories we recommend:

A White Pocket Square or Handkerchief

You should have at least one suit in your wardrobe, even if you only get to wear it once a year. You can top your suit off with a white pocket square, folded and peeking out of the top pocket. Best of all, it’s an accessory that won’t break the bank.

A Tie Bar

This is another accessory that’s often forgotten about, but it can add a special touch to an outfit. If you’re worried about your budget, then choose a plain silver one but if you’re ready to splash out choose gold, platinum, or titanium.

Dress Socks

You might think no one notices your socks but you might be surprised. Keep your white socks for everyday use and look for something a little heavier and preferably patterned.


Not every man enjoys wearing sunglasses, but they’re great protection for the eyes. They also stop you squinting, which as we all know is one cause of wrinkles. Choose the right frames for the shape of your face, but apart from that, almost any pair will add a stylish touch. You can even shop for prescription sunglasses for men online, and have them sent to your door.

Dress Shoes

Trainers are great for lounging around but sometimes you need to up your game and dress shoes fit the occasion. They look good with a suit but don’t look out of place with trousers, jeans, or chinos.


The bag you choose depends on the occasion. For more casual occasions a backpack is great. However, if you want a more professional look choose a weekender bag. Not only will you be able to fill it with lots of useful things, you’ll also look good at the same time.

Casual or Dress Watch

You don’t have to be a watch man to own a watch. Why stop at one when there are so many stylish watches available. Discover watches by Omega, for example.


These are a must-have item and one will never be enough. You need to have a selection so you can mix and match according to the occasion and the outfit you’re wearing. Black or brown belts are great for the office. For a party you can afford to be a little more flamboyant. For your jeans or chinos, try being adventurous with the colours.


Your wallet says as much about you as a pair of cufflinks or your belt. What will people think about you when you get your wallet out to pay for lunch or coffees? It might seem like a luxury to have more than one, but it’s much better than having a pocket full of change.
What you wear and how you wear it changes your mood and the way people treat you. If you want to dress to impress, include some of the accessories as often as you can.
