I have a golden rule when it comes to men’s accessories: Always start off as a minimalist. You can then add more pieces on as you see fit. I love this rule mainly because it serves as a sort of base for putting together a look. Remember, there is a fine line between dressing up a look with tons of accessories and looking gaudy. It’s lucky then that the Spring Accessories for Men 2013 are incredibly well crafted to match up with not only this year’s trends, but classic trends as well. However, I would first like to examine a trend that works well for both ensemble and accessories.
The trend I’m referring to is the denim trend. This is without a doubt my favorite trend for Spring. This trend has hit retail stores across the country and can easy add a rugged sort of look to any man’s wardrobe. It can also clean up a wardrobe as well. It’s because of this dual nature that I have fallen in love with denim this season.
In stark contrast to the denim trend, we see a collection of bold and brightly colored accessories come down the Spring 2013 men’s runways. Salvatore Ferragamo had a stellar collection of bold colored accessories. They really seemed to draw in attention and in my opinion, were a big part of his overall collection. Another trend that will be sure to be a hit for the later summer months are the lack of socks. This year, socks are out and man ankles are in. This look was seen down the runways of Valentino and Michael Bastion.
So like I said previously, this year is about accessories. These accessories trends can either make or break an outfit. So go out, try new things and stay fashionable my friends.
