The 9 Best Mens Accessories to Upgrade in 2017

BY: Editors | 29 Nov 2017

Face it: the trends can be hard to keep up with, and so can the amount of new accessories produced each year.

If you're struggling to stay on top of men's fashion trends, then you've come to the right place. Here, we've collected the nine best mens accessories to upgrade in 2017.

1. Stylish mobile case

In the age of the smartphone, it's important to stay on the cutting edge. Not only will having a mobile case help prevent cracks and scratches, but a distinctive one will keep you from confusing your device with another, which is everyone's worst nightmare. 

2. Watch

Sure, your phone can tell time, but an elegant timepiece shows a little extra effort. Ironically, even in 2017, the watch feels...timeless.

3. Leather belt

No matter what type of trousers you wear, a belt can really top it off. Leather belts are quite versatile, as they complement both suits and denim. 

4. Scarf

Make your entire ensemble stylish by adding a scarf. This accessory is a sneaky cool addition to your wardrobe. They help fashion a look that has gained in popularity throughout the decade. Whether wearing a suit and an overcoat or a bomber jacket and jeans, a scarf in a luxury textile polishes off the look.

5. Sunglasses

The best sunglasses for men tend to be ones they didn't get for free at a pub. Classic Wayfarers go with anything from board shorts to boardroom suits, and matte-finish frames add a modern edge.

6. Leather wallet

No one wants other people to hear his wallet opening. Nix the velcro, and opt for a wallet made from Italian leather. Don't be afraid to experiment with colour—black and brown are timeless, but navy and merlot are lovely alternatives.

7. Oxfords

Oxfords were in stylish in the 1990s (and also the 1890s), and it looks like they're back again. And for good reason: An oxford is versatile enough to pair with trousers, tailored shorts, and suits. There's more to a lad's shoe collection than trainers and whatever he wears to weddings.

8. Cufflinks

Cufflinks never went away: they're a must for men who attend a lot of formal occasions, like black-tie weddings or job interviews.

9. Messenger bag

Think of it as the happy medium between a rucksack and a briefcase. These days, the best-looking messenger bags have a modern design with architectural details.
