Jewelry and Bracelets are often connected to women’s fashion but that is not true. Men who wear jewelry become more common every day. It is a simple way to show your character to the outside world. A men wearing a necklace with a cross is probably religious while a wedding ring indicates your relationship status. So, it’s a good way to show personality.
Accessories are not just watches anymore, it can also be a stylish scarf, rings or other kinds of jewelry. Here are my top three.
Designer or Classic Scarf:
Scarfs were made to protect your most sensible part of your body which is your neck from the cold. The role of scarfs changed dramatically. Back in the days they were mainly used for comfort and not stylish purposes. Now, scarfs can be used to highlight the whole outfit by dragging all the attention towards it. if you want to achieve that, use a designer scarf. Here is an example.

Belts are usually covered by a shirt or a jacket but why? They can be easily used to add a color or a pattern to an outfit. A trending design is the seat belt. Here is an example.

Jewelry can show a person who doesn’t know you a lot about your character. A chain with a cross for example indicates that you are religious. It can also be simple used as stylish accessorie to give your outfit a different vibe. Here is an example.

These wear my top Accessories for men. Of course there are watches too, but I think they are already known and a well accepted essential. Accessories like the ones above can give your outfit the specific vibe you were looking for. So, be brave and try it..
Jackets were made to protect you from the cold and to keep you warm but they can also be used as a highlight piece. Here are my top 5 jackets for the upcoming winter and spring season.
Pilot jackets were like the name already says, made for pilots. That trend goes back to the 1920’s and increased its popularity through movies like Top Gun. The stylish jackets can be worn in either winter or spring depending on their inside material. Big logos and colorful prints on the outside give the jacket a vintage and stylish look. Here is an example.

After designers picked up the style of hiking shoes and other outdoor equipment, it was only a matter of time until they designed fleece jackets. Trending colors are mocca and cream but basic colors are always good to wear too. Here is an example.

Flannel is a really soft material that keeps you warm and protects you from the cold. It is often worn by construction workers because it is really thin compared to a normal winter jacket. Flannel jackets usually feature basic square patterns in different colors. As for the fleece jackets, creamy colors are trending. Here is an example.

Puffer jackets are usually very thick and warm. The inside is filled with feathers which gives the jacket a puffed look. Puffer jackets exist in various variations and can be worn with basically everything. Navy blue or Black are good colors because they are more resistant to dirt, especially with the rainy and snowy weather. Here is an example.

Coats are a really good options for people who are required to work in suits.Not a lot of winter jackets can be combined with a suit but coats definitely can. It is a timeless piece that makes your look seem more professional. Dark colors like navy, black or brown are really good options because they match with more suits. Creamy and beige colors are more extraordinary but still a very good option. Here is an example.

These are my top five winter jackets. Having at least one or maybe even more would put your wardrobe and your style to the next level. I would personally stick to more basic color ways because winter jackets are usually more expensive and should therefore last longer. So, they probably last longer than a color trend and it would be sad to buy a new jacket because the color isn’t trending anymore.
Hats are a way to highlight or a complete an outfit but adding a specific style or color to it. It can also be used to cover a bad hair day or a quarantine cut. The lockdown of barbershops should us the actual worth of stylish hats and therefore we looked for possible hat trends in 2021.
