Fall is officially here, which means goodbye shorts and hello layers. When it comes to autumn fashion, there is one detail that a lot of men neglect: accessories.
I accessorize every outfit, so I want to help other men ramp up their casual attire to create head-turning looks with a few simple adjustments. I took a walk around Mall of America to find some of my favorite accessories, and here I’ll demonstrate how to pair them with a variety of outfits.
Fossil is known first and foremost for its amazing collection of watches. Their customizable bands allow you to match your watch to any outfit, any season, any day. They have a wide selection of styles including their new hybrid smartwatch. Whether your band is made of stainless steel, or black or brown leather, each Fossil watch can help elevate your daily looks and add a hint of sophistication at the same time.
Pro-tip: The Fossil at Mall of America allows you to engrave the back of your watch right in the store!
No matter the season, I always have a pair of sunglasses in my car. Everyone needs a good pair of them. If you want sunglasses that set you apart, TOMS is might be your best bet. Some people don’t know that the philanthropic retailer has more than just shoes; they also have a wide variety of sunglasses! Whether you rock a pair of huge aviator shades or tone it down with a classic black rimmed pair, there is bound to be a style for you at TOMS. Plus, every time you purchase a TOMS eye wear product, you provide a person in need with a full eye exam by a trained medical professional.
A good bag is a necessity in the fall when you have just too many things to bring into the office. H&M has a variety of bags—from weekend bags to leather shoulder bags. I found this one and absolutely love it because it fits my laptop as well as a few files in case I need to go to an offsite meeting. It’s also compact and fits nicely by my side on the bus or train.
People who know me know I have a slight obsession with scarves. This is really one of the most versatile accessories you can wear this season. Anything from a heavy infinity scarf (like the one shown above) to a thinner fashionable one can add a pop of color or print to a solid-colored outfit. I’ve purchased some of my favorite scarves from all over MOA, including at H&M, Nordstrom, American Eagle and Gap!
