An Understated Look
Even if you don't care much for fashion, wearing a few choice pieces of fine jewelry can elevate your look in ways that few things can. The simple act of putting on a nice watch or wearing a gold chain that's just visible under your collar takes five seconds as part of your daily routine yet receives immense payoff the rest of the day. Your colleagues, friends, and partners will subconsciously take note of your understated elegance when a pair of cufflinks finds itself part of your daily ensemble. Dress like the man you want to become, and you'll see the results in no time at all.
More Than a Watch
Watches and timepieces are more than functional accessories; they're pieces of wearable art. Every man should own at least one watch for everyday purposes to automatically dress up any outfit without even trying. Your everyday watch can be as simple as a watch face to keep the time and date, or you can choose one with more functionality, such as a compass, altimeter, moon phase display, and luminous display. Some watches are equipped for water resistance up to a certain depth. Regardless of how many features you choose, remember that your watch should be a blend of style and functionality that is ultimately an extension of you.
It can be difficult to figure out how to incorporate anything more than a nice watch into an outfit in the traditional workplace without seeming too much. Enter your best professional companions: cufflinks, tie bars, tie clips, and lapel pins. Whether you're presenting at a big conference or just want to look nice for your colleagues, lapel pins are a great and subtle accessory to up your status. A tie clip can hold you together during the most stressful of times. Custom cufflinks can be engraved with your initials, or go above and beyond and inlay them with the company logo for you and your staff as a holiday treat. With these accessories, you'll look and feel like the smartest one in the room.
For Today or a Big Day
The groom's wedding jewelry is equally important as the bride's — with most men wearing a traditional suit and tie, every accessory is worth more to make the day unique and extra special. Whether you opt for a pair of jeweled monogrammed cufflinks or a simple, modern tie bar, these little details will add an intangible elegance to your wedding day wardrobe. Consult your partner to decide if you want to match their accessories or the wedding theme. When picking out your jewelry, don't forget to choose something that complements your wedding band style and metal!
