Photographer, lifestyle writer, and Cravat nominee Vincent Ko takes us on this look at 5 of his favorite accessories from the past year.
Nothing says attention like a gold watch. Everyone should have one in their closet. It doesn’t have to be an expensive gold watch. A gold watch will make you look like a million bucks. However, make sure you choose the right gold tone. You don’t want one that looks fake.
Let your animal instinct come out! These rings are for those who want to be a little edgier. Wear black t-shirt and black skinny jeans and I guarantee you will look like a rockstar. They never go out of style and they don’t fade.
Another must have accessories are chains bracelet and spikes bracelet. Wear all of them at once. You can never have too many bracelets. If you’re feeling lazy but still want to look somewhat edgy and cool-you can throw on a basic shirt and pair it up with skinny jeans. They will spice up your look! I like to wear all of them at once on my hand.
Another item that every man should own is a pochette. You can also call it a business clutch or just clutch. Don’t be afraid to carry it. We’re living in the 21st century. If you can find a vintage one than that’s even better. You can put all of your stuff in there – cellphone, wallet, digital camera, keys… It makes you look more professional and proper. Besides you won’t have to worry about losing your stuff.
Don’t you hate it when you see people shove everything in their pants pockets? I personally don’t want to walk down the streets with bulging pockets.
A good pair of loafers is what every man should own. They’ve been around for a long time and they’re here to stay! You can pretty much buy them anywhere – online, outlet, mall. I like vintage loafers, myself, just because they’re one of a kind. You can rock these babies with anything; jeans, pants, shorts, etc. They can be casual and they can be formal. I wear them everyday, except when it’s winter.
