UNDERDOG ACCESSORY. Being one of the most underrated men’s pieces does not stop the scarf from invading the runway for functional and stylish purposes

DOS:

  • EXPERIMENT WITH DIFFERENT KNOTS
    Some knot variations can tone down your attire, while the others will spruce it up.
  • INVEST IN QUALITY EXAMPLES
    Transcending seasons and styles, a scarf of quality material can last a lifetime.

DON’TS:

  • FEAR THE “FEMININE” UNDERTONE
    The scarf has been a men’s staple item for aviators, soldiers and cowboys for ages—it’s definitely masculine.
  • BE RESTRICTED BY SEASONS
    Thinner scarves, such as linen and cotton, can work well for both colder and warmer days.

KNOW-HOW:

  • jacket

One of the best things about a scarf is that you can have fun with it. Combining a patterned jacket with a patterned scarf—as long as they are subtle and within the same tone—is just one example.

  • scarf

Choose an example with a simple pattern but dashing color composition. When layered underneath a sharply tailored suit, such a scarf will act as an elegant, one-of-a-kind accent. Just ensure that your suit does not come in a striking motif.

  • watch

A stainless steel watch always attracts attention—and it will never go out of style, too. Opt for one with a fabric strap as there are variations aplenty. Additionally, to enhance your smart appeal, choose one with a chronograph feature.
