accessory (n) - an article or set of articles of dress, as gloves, earrings, or a scarf that adds completeness, convenience, attractiveness, etc., to one’s basic outfit.
Every Wednesday I’ll be defining a new word that’s important to know in the menswear world. Today I’m starting with the letter A for accessory. We all know what accessories are but you may not know the importance of them in an outfit. Take my outfit for example. I kept things very simple with a blue blazer and white shirt but the accessories make it much more stylish. A pop of color in the red tie and hints of brown in the watch and pocket square help pull it all together. You don’t need to go overboard but try adding a few accessories to every outfit and you’ll see the difference. Shop some of my favorites below.
