Accessories are an easy way to make a basic outfit pop. Although jewelry is the first thing to come to mind when pumping up an outfit, there are many other options for those who want to take a more subtle approach.
For men in particular, the junky or colorful costume jewelry that generally serves as a simple fix to any woman’s dull wardrobe is pretty much out of the picture. Instead, this Fashionisto found a way to make a stylish impression by adding a few understated elements to his classic wardrobe.
A dark belt is a great way to break up an otherwise monochromatic outfit. It separates the body into more proportional sections while creating a polished and put together look. Colored shoes like the ones this Fashionisto is sporting are another great way to add excitement to a garment. Anyone can pull off a discrete color like the dark blue featured. For those more daring try something bright or printed; neon colors are an especially hot trend for the summer, or add a splash of animal print—a great pattern in small doses.
These accessories are gender neutral and a great way to spruce up even the most professional outfit. It adds flair to the look without being flashy or over the top, which results in a tasteful and sophisticated, yet totally trendy outfit.
