Cufflinks and Watches

For some men fashion is not important. But you don’t have to live for fashion to know all about accessorizing. This is when you add items to your outfit to make it stand out and become unique. These items can include jewelry, watches, cufflinks, wallets and even shoes. But how do men choose their accessories and which suit them best? How do men match their accessories to their personality?

The most important thing to think about when accessorizing is to determine what style you are going for. Some men like to go modern and sleek whereas others prefer the more classic look.

* Classic

You can never really go wrong with classic. This style consists of timeless pieces that you can match with pretty much anything. Classic pieces will not date or change with the times but will instead keep you looking smart and sophisticated for as long as you wear them. An example of a classic accessory would be a gold pair of plain cufflinks.

They would match any suit or shirt and will look expensive (even if they are not)! Classic watches will usually have a gold or leather strap with a face that contains roman numerals. Again this is a piece that will not age or date. Going for classic accessories are a good investment because they will stay with you for the rest of your life.

* Modern

If you are going for the modern look then stainless steel, titanium and funky designs are more your thing. With modern fashions being designed to look chunky and solid, you won’t find anything subtle! Modern watches for example are almost a fashion trend in themselves. It seems nowadays that the bigger the better! Men’s modern watches now contain more jewels and carats than their wives’ jewelry box! Of course with modern jewelry come the modern way to wear it. It is all the rage for men to have their ears pierced now and great big diamonds are so in! Think P Diddy, think David Beckham. Both men have very good fashion sense and both men have several sets of big earrings!

Of course it’s not always about fashion. Sometimes it’s what you feel comfortable with or what reflects your personality. If you are a traditional sort of guy then the classic look will definitely be for you, whereas if you are into your fashion trends and like to look your best then you will probably want to go for the modern accessories. Everyone has their own unique personality which is why you can buy all kinds of accessories to suit each taste. If you enjoy surfing and outdoor sports then you will find a huge range of waterproof watches and wallets that are perfect to take to the beach with you.
