In today’s economic climate, buying a whole new wardrobe in 2014 might not be the most practical decision. However, the exciting variety of accessories for men on offer, from leather watches to pocket squares, still offers some scope for sartorial experimentation.
Shinola Runwell Chrono
Telling the time shouldn’t be a perfunctory affair. Shinola is Detroit’s best-kept secret. The company lovingly crafts artisanal leather watches with a striking, quirky appearance. The Runwell Chrono, with its bold digits, exaggerated shape and unlikely color combination immediately brightens up a sedate outfit. Let the hours go by with one of the coolest watches of Shinola’s collection of 2014 that will have you looking sharp even as you ensure you’re on time for every appointment.
David Yurman Bracelets
Arm candy isn’t just for the ladies anymore. David Yurman’s bracelets for men inject just enough grit to have a masculine touch without stepping into punk rock territory. A plain leather wrap bracelet makes a formal outfit look a little less stuffy while a hippie-style beaded bracelet adds a sense of fun to the most casual of outfits.
Paul Smith Pocket Squares
These days, it seems like pocket squares are all the rage, and it’s easy to see why. A whimsical, slightly retro look that’s formal enough for the boardroom helps you toe the line between cool and competent. Paul Smith’s pocket squares in psychedelic hues and polka dots add a dash of color to an irreverently worn blazer.
It’s time to embrace offbeat accessories in 2014, not least for their ability to give outfits from years gone by a new lease of life.
