Fall is here and it’s time to put your best foot forward when it comes to style for the season. Here at KamaMan, we like to think of the advantage that accessorizing brings as a team effort; each piece plays a key part to build a complete look. They all must function well together and not visibly compete for attention, creating distractions.
A few thoughtfully picked accessories can tune up and top off your aesthetic for a sharp statement. Investing in quality pieces that provide both versatility and functionality on a daily basis will set you ahead of the game. This is prime time to get acquainted with the added ability to spice things up visually with inviting dimensional textures. Color palates of all hues can benefit from this easy way to awaken a look. Check out how we’re bringing in the season with some accessorizing strategy essentials that cater to your strengths:
Rugged luxury is the name of the game. Cashmere is one of the most versatile fabrics and a great way to layer with the added effect of an inviting ribbed texture. Aside from looking undeniably dapper, scarves are downright practical. They also add an opportunity to play with a little color without going overboard. Selecting a shade that complements the rest of your look (think black and grey) will work wonders when it comes to brightening up your demeanor. Cashmere is refined enough that you can pair with a suit and overcoat without risking the appearance of preparing to do battle with a blizzard.
When you want a guaranteed masculine necklace that will withstand even the most adventurous conditions, trust in tungsten. This natural element signals strength, it is solid to the core and nearly scratch proof. This pendant is tastefully paired with a black carbon fiber inlay on a study link chain for a dimensional piece that will be right at home hanging from under a scarf. If you’re prone to monochrome (and who doesn’t love bold blacks or confident charcoal shades?) utilizing subtle inclusions of striking materials like tungsten makes for an eye-catching shine that lasts forever and is ready to elevate even the most low-key looks.
Opting for a timekeeper with a lightly textured steel strap doesn’t overpower other wrist effects, but instead adds balance and focus. There’s a lot of range in price point for timepieces, but if you’re looking to go the distance, trust in the Swiss when it comes to guaranteed quality. Craftsmanship comes full circle in this sophisticated model with no detail left untouched. The polished texture of the black stainless steel band paired with a case composed of matching sandblasted stainless steel, shiny gunmetal indexes and sunray dial is what effortlessly cool is all about.
Comparable on the durability scale to tungsten, black ceramic is an extremely hard, light weight non-metallic material that has recently gained traction in men’s jewelry. The distinct black color is not a coating; it’s the real deal. This means if the bracelet is scratched, it won’t reveal another color underneath. A carbon fiber inlay adds an extra touch of assertive edge to the piece. Interlocking links add alluring dimension and textural notes. The sturdiness of ceramic allows you the freedom to wear daily, without worrying about it overwhelming other wrist pieces such as your watch.
The right pair of shades is always going to treat you well. Aside from the obvious benefits of protecting your eyes from those ever-present UV rays, sunglasses are equally a mainstay for the style-conscious. Men have a diverse offering of styles, shapes and colors to choose from — making it easy to showcase personality. The Justin style is inspired by the highly iconic, classic Wayfarer. The smooth rubberized finish and array of gradient frame colors and lenses are a fresh take on a favorite. Opting for a pair of universally flattering shades will add instant suave to your saunter.
Accentuate your accessories. Bracelets and your watch should complement each other, so casually coordinate them accordingly.
If you plan to wear several bracelets for a fashion-forward approach, a leather bracelet is a smart choice to “anchor” the look.
Size matters! When dressing your wrist, balance your beads and bands smartly with your timepiece. If your watch is on the chunky side, you have the option of rocking a thicker bracelet paired with smaller beaded bracelets. Conversely, if your watch is thin, stick to similar structured bracelets to complement it. You don’t want to overpower your watch with huge beads.
Metal or steel pieces makes a big statement and should be worn with a more toned down outfit choice. These masculine materials can stand on their own as a focal point.
Solid metal bracelets wear best as a solo piece and you don’t want the metal scuffing your watch, so wear the bracelet on your free hand (non-watch hand). Think: railroad spike cuff
Keep things simple with this masculine black silicone bracelet that is encircled with an inlaid cable that meets at a stainless steel center plate. The lightweight silicone makes for an easy wear to take you through the day. The polished stainless steel hidden clasp completes this refined look that is versatile enough for work or play.
