When buying glasses, there are certain things that should be taken into consideration to ensure that the right pair is chosen. Glasses can be a great accessory and can complement the look of the wearer, if the model is carefully selected.
The most important thing for men to assess is the shape of their face. One of the biggest mistakes that guys often make is choosing a pair of glasses that does not properly fit their face-shape. For example, people with a long face should wear larger frames that make the face look wider.
Most glasses will fit most heads naturally; however, some models will cause the eye-line to be off centre, which may not only look strange, but could hinder the wearer’s eyesight. This is something that is always worth checking.
The colour of the frames should depend on the wearer’s most common style of dress. Black frames are the safe option for guys who would like something neutral that can go with most clothing; however, if people want something a bit more interesting, then the colour should be determined in conjunction with the skin tone and the everyday look that the wearer possesses.
A lot of guys do not realise that their glasses may need to be adjusted in order to fit their face properly. One of the most important elements of looking good with glasses is ensuring that they are not slanted and that they comfortably fit on the bridge of the nose. Glasses that do not fit perfectly simply look strange.
The Christmas season brings with it a host of holiday parties, from office parties to parties thrown by family or friends. For those who may not have much money to spend on their party outfits, here are a few tips that may be helpful.
Get a party dress with a sequined or glitzy finish Frock and Frill have a great selection of bedazzled dresses. You can also opt for a simple black dress and dress it up with sequined accessories. These items are not very costly.
Buy a few inexpensive tops with shiny or festive details and pair them with smart or elegant black trousers that you already own. You can add some shiny bracelets or earrings to add to the festive theme.
Go for cheap costume jewellery and bags, since you will only use them a few times for a few parties and as such, quality is not so important.
Lastly, shop for all of your items at thrift stores or flea markets. When shopping online, look for those sites offering deals, or search for discount coupons that are redeemable at those online stores.
Although all we seem to be getting at the moment is rain and cold, there sunshine is on its way. This summer’s fashion focus is all about bright and neon colours, quirky patterns and lots and lots of handbags. Handbags are the key fashion accessory this summer and here are a few hints and tips to ensure that you are “in with the trends”:
This trend seems to be growing quickly and emerging from nowhere. Bags this summer are becoming a lot more sophisticated and are often decorated with lots of diamonds, jewels and bling. With this trend though, you need to be careful not to over-do it, the key to pulling this look of successfully is remembering that less is more.
Leopard print was all the range last season, however we have moved on from this. When it comes to bags this summer, animal skin is in! Whether it is snake skin or crocodile skin, as long as it is wild, but classy, then it will sure grab you some attention! Again, like with the ‘Modern Embellishment’, less is more. You should try more subtle and neutral colours for a more expensive and up-market look.
We have witnessed a new sporting theme coming about in our spring clothes and it is set to be pretty big for the summer too. To go along with this, many designers are making their bags “see-through” with a sporting twist. Clear bowling bags and gym bags will be everywhere this summer and although it is a strange trend, it is sure to be a big hit!
Gorgeous pastel and ice cream colours have proven to be a favourite when it came to handbag colours this spring, and the trend will be sure to carry on all through this summer! The colours are easy to wear and will go with all most any outfit. This is a perfect summer handbag style and is especially good for those who like to follow the fashion trends without making too much of a statement.
Men aren’t often complimented for their ability to accessorise. While this may be true of men of the past, there is a sudden surge in men adding little details to their wardrobe. Nothing makes a man look more professional, charismatic and confident than one who can add little touches to his wardrobe, and pull it off perfectly.
Many men’s high-fashion and business magazines are strong proponents of one particular look, the tie bar. There’s been a sharp increase in men seen wearing them, both in the workplace and just out on the streets. Unfortunately, not all men know the secrets to making the tie bar work for them – until now.
There are some definite rules to wearing a tie bar that need to be taken into consideration. One of those is the placement of the accessory on the tie. The rule on this is quite simple, according to GQ Magazine it goes between the third and fourth buttons of the dress shirt. Anything any higher or lower is just not right and doesn’t give you the polished look that you want.
Another important rule is that tie bars should clip the entire tie to the shirt. This serves a practical purpose, keeping the tie in place while you move in your everyday life, but it also looks much sharper this way.
Tie bars should never be wider than your tie. If you are wearing a skinny tie, either make sure you have a very short tie bar or forego this look altogether. If the bar is wider than the tie, the look is just going to be unpolished and unprofessional.
If you manage to master all of these tie bar rules, you’re sure to impress everyone in your life, from your boss to your partner. Nothing exudes confidence more than a man who knows how to put the finishing touches on his sharp look.
The foundations of designer menswear are very often overlooked when trying to define a distinct image. Accessories add that finishing touch that will not only make you stand out, but can turn your outfit from good to outstanding. The most important aspect of dressing is simplicity, and when dealing with accessories less really is more. Just the simple addition of a watch or necklace could be enough to complete your look.
What Accessories to Wear
There are some accessories that are essential regardless of your outfit. The wallet is one of the most important aspects of fashion and with hundreds of different styles, there should never be an excuse not to find something that suits your style.
Many people claim that they don’t suit hats but in most cases, this is false. There are literally hundreds of different styles of hat. Usually when shopping, a man will completely ignore the hat section of a shop assuming straight away, that nothing will be found. Hat shopping can be difficult, but with a little perseverance you could find a hat that will suit any style.
One of the most recent fashion accessory trends is the men’s leather necklace. Necklaces can be worn both under and over a t-shirt. Most people choose to wear a necklace over a t-shirt if the clothing has minimal design, this will give the t-shirt a more interesting look. The most recent range of Julie Ann Turner leather necklaces are currently on the rise.
Formal Fashion Accessories
Ties are probably one of the most overlooked parts of formal dressing. The tie can add an elegant touch to your outfit. Not wearing a tie can look great if you are going for a smart but casual look, however a tie can simply be all you need to bring your outfit to the next level. It’s always worth having a selection of ties to choose from, this should include skinny and thick ties in a variety of colours. This way you will be able to adapt your tie to the style of your outfit.
Watches, cuff-links and tie-pins can also be a great addition to a suit. When buying jewellery it’s important that you keep the same contrast across the board. Being subtle is key and there is nothing more obvious than having a mixture of colour when wearing accessories.

If you already bought one last year, the good news is, this accessory is sticking around for a little longer yet. The snood is loved for its versatility; it is easy to wear and can be teamed up with a smart tailored suit or a simple, everyday outfit. Some consider the snood to be unsightly in appearance and less elegant in comparison to a traditional scarf. Yet the snood holds the added advantage of lacking in bulky knots and lumps and so contributes to a sleek image.
The snood comes in many different colours. You can either opt for a daring, coloured snood or a classic, no fuss snood. If your wardrobe consists of bold statement outfits, a neutral snood would be your best bet.
