There are many reasons for us men to be envious of the fairer sex. Though I’m just generalizing here, they can hold down a job, raise a child and make a man feel like he’s the only one that matters all at the same time. But maybe let’s wade to the more shallow side of the pool. The right confidence in a woman can open doors, earn free drinks at the bar and while women often do whatever they can to avoid getting noticed, we men will do anything to attract attention! One envy I’ve carried with me ever since high school when my older sister would take an hour in the bathroom in the morning is one of fashion. I’m no fashion guru, but I’m either in my jeans and a t-shirt, or a suit. There’s really very little middle ground. My sister would make the whole family late trying to figure out what accessory was appropriate for a given occasion, and well, now we can too. You don’t need a man-purse, but heck, even those are coming into fashion, so maybe you do! Here are a couple of ways a man can augment is wardrobe by accessorizing in a classy and noticeable way.
1. A Wooden Ring
Believe it or not, this new fashion trend is percolating into pop culture and is about to volcanically explode, so now is the time to be the first. A wood ring can come in so many styles whether it is inlaid with fine jewels or precious metals. The thing is, it’s wooden and therefore kind of definitively classy. I have been perusing a wide variety online, and to be honest, I wouldn’t wear anything else. Personally, I don’t love the look of something flashy or shiny, but I do feel a hair more confident with a little something extra. A wooden ring could be the perfect thing for you.
2. Rolex watch.
The Rolex is like a handbag, a hair tie, and the right heels, all rolled up into one. But for a man. A Rolex doesn’t ask to be noticed, it insists on it. Where a wooden ring could be more of a subtle accent, the Rolex is the taser of accessories. It surprises and shocks and commands attention. This is not to say they are not classy, they are. The Rolex and class have been synonymous since seemingly the dawn of time. One thing the sets Rolex brand watches above all the rest is that rolex service is second to none, just like their watches.
The days of the nerd like stereotype going with glasses have gone the way of the dodo. They’re gone. I’ve been a glasses wearing man my whole life and whereas I used to walk down the street and hear ‘four eyes!’ now I hear ‘for sure!’ Seriously fellas, and I can’t stress this enough, glasses are sexy. For those of you lucky devils who have never needed to squint at the board or a road sign, there are purely cosmetic glasses with no prescriptions. Ladies love them. Even if you don’t have that engineering job or the college degree, the right pair of glasses negates all of that. You will be taken more seriously immediately and you won’t be able to help but feel a little more confident every time you look in the mirror.
