Purposeful details adds more power to your outfit, and shows everyone that you pick up on the little things. Here are a few quick and cheap upgrades.
Socks don’t always have to be black and white. The fun guy knows that socks add personality to dull duds like khakis and navy dress pants. A colorful stripe or a hit of camo will also earn you a nod of approval.
The right cuff links can hint at strong poker skills, a love of old coins, or a strong solid guy. Solid metal is simple and classic; flashy gem styles say you miss high school.
Trousers require a slim, sophisticated leather belt with a subtle buckle. Belts meant for denim and casual pants are thicker, with bolder hardware. Both should roughly match your shoes in color and texture details.
If you’re wary of bright shoes, limit the colors to laces. Even brown dress shoes can work with green or orange laces. Deeper hues are understated, while neon brights add attitude.
