What will the smart man be wearing this summer? Maybe some of the fab men’s accessories on our weekly wishlist?
Guys love to accessorise as much as girls, they just like everyone to think they don’t. But give a man the change to carry a bag, and he’s there. Sunnies are a given. Bow ties and braces? Hipster cool. Trust us, men’s accessories are a great gift!
It’s summer (well, it’s on it’s way, trust us, just after all the hail and rain has gone), so it’s time to get a new straw hat. You know you want one guys! (£12.99, H&M). Socks are a necessity in a Scottish summer, but, guys, just not with sandals? That’s fine for us girls, but not guys, okay? Have fun with your socks with the brilliant Happy Socks from JOY – there are loads of styles to choose from, and they’re £8 a pair.
Man bags are amongst the most popular men’s accessories – they’re a modern man essential. Choose from a canvas satchel style (£45, RJR.John Rocha, Debenhams), or a bright backpack (£35, JOY) or, if a big bag isn’t your style, just a simple laptop case (with some Harris Tweed style) from BHS (£20). Summer wedding means you might need a new tie – choose a patriotic red white and blue striped style, £20, Jeff Banks @ Debenhams.
A good leather belt is an essential in any wardrobe of men’s accessories – we love this vintage style brown one from J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams (£22). A classic pair of sunnies is a must, but they don’t have to be expensive. These black classic style are £14, Red Herring @ Debenhams.
Desert boots are great spring to summer footwear – we love these in tan suede and leather from French Connection (£98). We love these fun hammer and saw cufflinks from BHS (£10) – might make the men in our life think about those summer DIY jobs!
Braces and a bow tie is about as hipster as you get – find them at H&M in a set (£7.99). Finally, also at H&M, we think this anchor fastening striped bracelet is a great summer touch (£6.99).
