Some suiting accessories are wardrobe essentials and these include ties. You can, however, take it up a notch and extend your accessory collection to include cuff links, pockets square and even lap pins. Wearing a suit daily can be repetitive and boring, especially if you stick to regular neutrals such as black, charcoal and navy. Accessories are the one way to update your suit and express your style.
Whether you're suiting up for the office or selecting an outfit for a dinner date, a tie seems pull together your look with different textures and complementary colours. Remember to balance the width of the tie against your lapels and shirt collar and find a knot that fits your face and you really can’t go wrong. If you’re keen to step it up then go for a tie in a colourful pattern, floral is often a win. You can also add interest to your look by choosing a bright pocket square. The colour of pocket square should complement your tie, but not match it. Don’t be afraid to experiment with bold patterns and bright colors, but if they aren’t your style, stick to neutrals and refold your pocket square into a different shape. With the revival of retro styling in suiting so have lapel pins become increasingly popular. Stick pins, usually adorned with a rosette, are increasingly popular and, similarly to a pocket square, are a great way to complement your tie. Cuff links are both practical and stylish, and they don’t have to be too overwhelming. Even if you shy away from jewellery and accessories, you can find a pair that will suit your style and taste and complement your outfit. Choose from solid colour knots to understated geometric shapes with minimal detail.
