5 Alternate Accessories to Add to Your Wardrobe

It can be challenging to keep up with the latest fashion trends because things constantly change. One minute your wardrobe is up-to-date, then all your clothes are lame the following week.

While that fact may dishearten you, you can keep your outfits looking fresh with a few accessories. You might have thought about adding them before but didn’t think they would match your swag.

That’s understandable—finding the right ones can be tricky. But with our guide’s help, you’ll easily enhance your wardrobe. Take a look at some of our suggestions below.

1. Cuban Link Chains

Cuban link chains have been popular for decades. Rappers and athletes have always worn them to help their outfits stand out. The pieces tend to be large and flashy, which involves a hefty cost.

Now you may be clutching your wallet a little tighter thinking about the price, and we get that. Upgrading your wardrobe is a priority, but you also don’t want to break the bank.

But you won’t have to. There are Cuban links that don’t cost a million dollars and still look stylish.

However, you’ll need to consider a few things before purchasing one. First, do you want a gold or silver Cuban link chain? Each pairs well with specific outfits, so you’ll need to scan your wardrobe to see which chain is the better fit.

Secondly, how long do you want your chain to be? You can have the “rapper chain,” which might seem like an absurd size. Or you can choose smaller Cubans chains such as:

  • 4mm
  • 8mm
  • 12mm

These sizes reference the chain’s width. Length-wise, they can be 50 to 54cm. Figure out which type of chain best suits you and watch your outfits come to life.

2. Bracelets

A classic wrist accessory that most people wear is a watch. They can complement most outfits and are great for telling time (obviously). 

However, one downfall is their heaviness. Not to mention, if the watch isn’t the right size, you’ll be adjusting your wrist all night. 

But what if you don’t want to have a naked wrist? What other accessories can you wear? Enter the leather bracelet.

It’s a subtle piece that can complement most outfits and won’t take up as much space as a watch. You can wear leather, metal, or rope bracelets, depending on your style preferences. And if you still want to wear your watch, bracelets can provide an added boost in the background.

3. Rings

Most men wearing rings often limit it to their wedding band, which isn’t bad. However, by doing so, you’re limiting your stylistic potential.

All rings don’t have to be band-like or have a stone; you can also have open rings with no stone. There are also signets, which can make you feel like a boss.

Another ring that could elevate your status is a pinky ring. They were worn in the olden days to signify a man’s wealth. 

You might see rich movie villains fiddling with them while sipping a glass of whiskey. Wearing one won’t make you a villain (hopefully), but you might draw some attention from interested parties.

4. Sunglasses

Sunglasses are a wardrobe essential; you can never go wrong with a pair. Of course, they’re better to wear during the warmer months when the sun is at its peak. They help protect your eyes from the UV rays.

However, you can also wear them during the cooler months. People may look at you weird for wearing them during these periods, but the sun is still shining, just not as long (depending on where you live).

But sometimes, wearing them isn’t necessary; you could have the sunglasses hanging from your shirt pocket or the middle of your t-shirt. Either way, having a handy pair is always a bonus.

5. Hats

Although these could be categorized as clothing, hats are also a great accessory to add to your wardrobe. Different types of hats can make your outfits stand out, such as:

  • Fedoras: Great to wear with blazers or sports coats
  • Beanies: Wear a brighter color to help your winter outfit stand out in the dreary weather
  • Baseball caps: Upgrade your athleisure swag with one of these
  • Bucket hats: If you miss the summer of 2019, you can tap into it by wearing these hats that go with most outfits

These Accessories Will Enhance Your Style

You don’t always need a big, flashy accessory to stand out. The best ones have a subtle but lasting impact on passing eyes.

Figure out which ones complement your style. Then try a few different combinations to maximize your outfit potential. You’ll look like a fashion pro, and before you know it, everyone will be asking you for fashion advice.
