If you haven't heard the news, we are well and truly in the era of accessorising. However, this is a topic which usually surrounds female fashion-so hopefully, this post brings something that's a little different.

Contrary to popular belief, men can win at accessorising as well. In fact, just like women, it's something that can make or break their outfit. This guide will now take a look at some of the best tips you can adopt if you are serious about pulling out all of the stops with your accessories.

It starts with the shoes

Some might suggest that shoes aren't accessories, but we're going to disagree. In fact, we will go as far as saying that these are one of the most crucial accessories you can purchase.

First impressions are made with your shoes; so choose them wisely. Of course, shoes are something of a loose term and nowadays, and boots are just as acceptable. These smart men's boots by Dune tick all of the boxes-they are elegant, while still holding the obvious practicality factor that you'll need in day-to-day life.

Invest in a rucksack

Some men will cram their pockets full of items, while others will turn to a carrier bag. Suffice to say, neither option is satisfactory.

As we step into 2020, one of the only acceptable solutions comes in the form of a rucksack. They are versatile, meaning that whether you are hitting the gym or the office, they are completely fine.

Cufflinks can make the difference

Nowadays, shirts are common both as formal and casual wear. What makes them stand out that little bit more? Cufflinks. One only has to turn to the movies to see the effect these have in action and while they might be subtle and small, they can transform any bland shirt into something utterly stylish.

Scarves can work a charm

Over the last decade or so scarves have made a real surge in the world of fashion. They are something that can draw the right sort of attention to your face and provide that splash of colour that some outfits desperately require.

Nowadays, anything with stripes and checks seem to work. In terms of what isn't working, well, simply wearing a scarf in the wrong weather is enough of a turn off for most. Trust us, we've seen it time and time again-just because scarves can look great, it doesn't mean to say that they need to be worn in the middle of summer.

Rings aren't just for wedding fingers

Some men will be completely turned off by this next suggestion, particularly as some struggle to get to grips with even wearing a wedding ring!

Nowadays, at least, rings are a real style accessory. Like anything, there are do's and don'ts, but as long as they tie into your outfit somewhat you shouldn't have any problems. These rings don't have to be expensive, and so-called fashion rings are perfectly OK.
