Why is that we, as men, are afraid to accessorize? We tend to think that it’s less manly to add a bracelet, ring, or a scarf to an outfit because ‘only women accessorize’. But let me tell you guys, sometimes all it takes is one accessory to bring the look together. I like adding accessories to my look because it gives my outfit some personality and has it screaming “dang, I look good in this!” Your outfit and accessories can speak, and what let people know who you might be as a person.
So today’s look is all about taking that everyday outfit that sits in the back of your closet, and turning it into something brand new and making it stand out by simply adding some accessories. This look I have on is made up entirely of items from my own closet…all were gifts that people have given me from previous special occasions. It’s easier than you think to put together a killer look like this with things that you have had hidden in your closet for years.
I wore one of my favorite button-down green, some may call ‘Mister Roger’, sweaters. The thing I love about these sweaters is you can wear them with just about anything. Ladies, you can also get one of these sweaters and pair it with something as well…so it’s not just for us guys! I paired it with my favorite jeans, and I decided to role the legs a little so that you could see my brown Aldo brogue shoes. Fellas, you can wear brogue shoes with just about any look, any time, because they are that versatile. My scarf was dark blue with shades of green that I wrapped once around my neck in order to add a dash of personality to the look. I’m a big fan of gold things, so I decided to wear my gold Geneva watch and my black and gold onyx bracelet. I have to say, this is by far one of my favorite looks. So bottom line here guys, don’t be afraid to accessorize! Here is a perfect chance for you to start adding accessories and begin scarfing around! -JT
