A great-fitting suit is one thing, but a polished look from head to toe is everything. Whether you’re getting ready for your big day or looking to change things up at the office, there are many ways to liven up your suit without breaking the bank. Today, we’ll walk through a few tips to give your style a welcome breath of fresh air.
1. A Colorful Pocket Square
Pocket squares come in all different colors, patterns and textures. Choose a bright color for a fun accent to your suit, or a modern pattern, like this Printed Linen Pocket Square—a small houndstooth pattern in hunter green. Remember, the color and style of your pocket square should simply complement your tie, not match it.
2. A Unique Tie or Bow Tie
One of the most popular ways to accessorize, a unique tie is a great way to add a pop of color texture or pattern to your suit. For example, our Light Blue Cargo Stripe Tie and Hunter Green Cargo Stripe Tie practically go with any color suit, for any occasion. And for a more casual, fun look, try our Teal Bulletin Dot Bow Tie.
3. Trend-Right Suspenders
Don’t be afraid to show off some suspenders now and then (or, if you want to sound fancier, you can call them by their old-school name: braces). Depending on which type you wear, this accessory can be dressed up for a more formal touch or worn casually. We recommend our Black Festival Texture Solid Loop Suspenders for starters.
4. Statement Socks
A new pair of socks are a wallet-friendly way to upgrade your look. Try our comfortable Black New Argyle Socks for a subtle, elegant touch, perfect for any occasion. Want something a little bolder? We’ve got you covered with our FUN Socks Blue Twill Geo Socks.
5. A Classic Belt
If you’re used to wearing your suit without a belt, now’s your chance to give it a try. Our classic Black Pebbled Leather Belt is a good start. The brushed and high polished buckle completes the look and gives it a professional look. Plus, double stitched edges with double keeper will help this belt last longer. Try it in brown, too!
6. A Lapel Flower Pin
A lapel flower pin is the perfect option for those tieless occasions, or as a substitute for a pocket square. Add flair to your suit coat or blazer with our Black Studded Stripe Lapel Flower Pin. If you’re looking for something with a pop of color, our Lavender Linen Lapel Flower should do the trick.
7. Elegant Cufflinks
When you have to go formal, you can’t go wrong with a classic. Our Silver Square Cufflinks have a textured surface to make them unique while fitting into any formal occasion. And for an unexpected twist for any occasion, our Brown Woodgrain Cufflinks are a simple way to switch things up.
8. Some New Shoes
Dress shoes should do more than look good, they should help get you through the day. Try our Fliteless Black and Espresso Cap-Toe Oxford Shoes. They’ll fit in at any office or stylish event, but give you the comfort and performance of your favorite running shoes—seriously, they’re the most comfortable dress shoes you’ll ever wear.
9. A Quality Shirt
You can never go wrong with a slim, modern fit dress shirt that’s appropriate for both the office or the bar. Try our Mizzen + Main Manhattan Dress Shirt, available in white, plaid, tattersall, gingham and check. This performance fabric dress shirt has a more crisp traditional look while crafted from a stretchy, lightweight fabric with superior quick dry, moisture-wicking properties.
