A number of men I speak with about style have a difficult time being able to create a signature look because they aren't looking to spend tons of money. In a word: understandable. What I typically tell these men is simple- fit, accessories & a little creative confidence.
Watches, bags, socks, necklaces, shoes, scarves... buying accessories that are special and pairing them with your basics are an easy way to pack a lot of punch on a limited budget.
Here's my roundup of great men's accessories that offer a little extra punch:
Lined boot: Opening Ceremony, Bag: Diesel, Socks: Urban Outfitters, Cream Scarf: Topman, Bowtie: Topman, Straw hat: Goorin, Reading glasses: Urban Outfitters, Watch: Nooka, Bracelet: Urban Outfitters, Grey Boots: Rankin, Grey Scarf: Diesel, Cap: Urban Outfitters
Update: This shop is new and fantastic for menswear and makes me wish I had somebody for whom to buy these delightful goods.
