Now that fall 2023 is upon us, it’s time for stylish men to throw away their entire wardrobes and completely start over, right?
Not quite! Discarding every garment from season to season is not reasonable, nor is it financially wise.
The surest way to stay on trend without breaking the bank is to add a few new accessories! Doing so will keep a man’s look modern and on par with the hottest runway looks.
Here are some exciting accessories to add to a sartorially sophisticated closet:
Crossbody bag—A sleek crossbody bag offers an equal measure of function and fashion. Check out Blue Seven (MyBlueSeven.com) for a great style that fits your personality. (photo 1)
Sunglasses—Even though the temperature is dropping, there are plenty of sunny days to sport the latest silhouettes in sunglasses. You'll find a nice selection at Blue Seven. (photo 2)
Bucket Hat—No longer only worn on bad hair days, bucket hats are a great way to modernize last year’s outfits. Chic, affordable styles can be found at many stores, large and small.
Scarf—Now larger, bolder and more luxurious, a statement scarf is an easy way to be trés chic in the chilly autumn air. Try one in merino wool or cashmere. Some nice ones are listed on Etsy; you’ll also find some upscale scarves at many stores in the metro catering to the well-dressed man.
Fragrance—Every man needs a signature scent this fall. Why not splurge and select a dramatic cologne from Cayman’s (Shop-Caymans.com). Best-sellers include Bond No. 9 New York Wall Street, Creed Green Irish Tweed and Creed Aventus. (photo X)
