Menswear Accessories Spring Summer 2011
Accessories can make or break an outfit – Every girl knows that. But what about men? In truth, they have it easy compared to the subtle politics and coordination of a handbag or a brooch.
My advice for mens accessories is to keep it simple, stick to colours you’re familiar with – Which for most men will be blacks, browns, blues and neutrals.
This set of accessories, in slick and shiny shades of black is an easy look can that can adapted for work or play. Perfect for business trips or the city.
Take inspiration from the country with soft brown leather, and simple check accessories. This look is great for travelling and patent leather loafers are particularly hot this season.
Stay fresh and casual by introducing a splash of colour into your outfit. It need not be as bright as these cobalt accessories, but don’t be afraid to incorporate some colour and have some fun.
Classic brogues in two shades does two things – It shows you have exceptional taste, and it gives you an extra colour to use when creating your outfit. This neutral set of accessories in degrees of brown and beige is perfect for a more leisurely, sporty look.
