Accessories Men Wear with Suits

by Finley

When a man gets dressed up in a suit, his accessories need to be dressy and formal as well. Accessories help complete an outfit. There are some accessories a man does not want to forget when getting dressed up.

Tie

Men can choose between a necktie, a bowtie, or even a bolo tie. It doesn’t necessarily matter which type of tie a man chooses to wear, but a suit is not complete without a tie. If you see someone wearing a suit without a tie, they may look sloppy and incomplete. When it comes to ties, you can choose from an unlimited amount of colors, patterns, and designs.

Pocket Squares

Pocket squares are for show only and they go in the suit jacket breast pocket. Normally, men will coordinate the color of their pocket square with their tie. The tie and the pocket square shouldn’t match exactly, but the colors should complement each other. A pocket square can be folded in many different ways. Some folds are more formal, but the pocket square in general is a dressy accessory.

Cufflinks

Cufflinks are an accessory that add style and help complete a man’s formal look. Cufflinks replace the use of buttons on the arm of a French cuff dress shirt. Cufflinks come in many different colors, styles, and sizes. You can choose which ones to wear based on your mood or your outfit.

Suspenders/Belt

Suspenders and belts both hold your pants up. However, only one should be worn at a time. When a man takes off his suit coat, it looks silly if he is wearing both suspenders and a belt. There are belt buckles for men that can be changed out on some belts. This can help complete the look of any suit should you decide to wear a belt instead of suspenders.
