It might be cold and dreary outside, but that shouldn’t be stopping you from planning for the summer. Men’s fashion in summer can be tricky to get right, and while the colder months are easy to look good in (layers for the win), a little planning can go a long way. If you can’t wait for the warmer months and you want to step into the summer looking your absolute best, here are some of the most important accessory trends for men in 2020. Plan what you’re going to wear, and 2020 could be the year that you step outside and glory in knowing that you look as fantastic as possible.
The Headgear For Everyone
While not everyone thinks they suit a hat, they are an indispensable accessory for the summer. There are some strong hat trends this year, so it’s worth trying a few out just to see what works. Of course, hats don’t just look good; they’re practical accessories, too, and can be great for shading you from the sun. Try on the following hats and see what suits your style and your head:
- Panama: Expect to see the fashionistas in your group of friends to rock a Panama at least once this summer. It’s a versatile hat, and it’s seeing a huge resurgence in 2020. That’s because a Panama looks good with both formal and casual wear, and they’re ideal for when it’s hot outside. Remember, you can opt for dark Panamas, but the lighter, classic tones are far more versatile.
- The Cap: It feels like the cap never goes out of style, and 2020 is no exception. Caps are the hat that non-hat wearers can cope with, and they can look good when you pick the right type. Avoid the snaps unless you’re going for the roadman look, and go for the classic soft peak. The growing popularity of Peaky Blinders has seen a resurgence of the flat-cap, but you’ll need to get the suits to match.
Timekeeping is Timeless
If there’s one accessory that every man should have a few of, it’s the watch. There was a period in the early 2000s where watches fell out of fashion for a while, but that trend has (thankfully) vanished. Now, a watch is something that you simply don’t want to leave the house without. That’s because a watch can be the perfect finishing touch to any outfit for any occasion. Although you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing the right watch, this year, you should invest in one of the outstanding Audemars Piguet watches for men (they do have a watch range for women as well if you and your partner want to match). When it comes to watches, you want quality along with classic, timeless design, and Audemars Piguet watches deliver on all counts.
One of the more surprising trends for men in 2020 is the rise of the bracelet. Forget those chunky, gold, gangster bracelets. Instead, look at those bracelets that are either stainless steel or made from natural stone. Gold jewellery is passé in 2020 for men, so try to avoid it at all costs this year (however, it might be back in 2021, so don’t sell it quite yet). Natural stone bracelets are definitely the way to go, and you’ll add a real touch of class to your 2020 ensemble by matching colours to what you’re wearing. Alternatively, opt for plain grey for the elegance that will match the rest of your wardrobe choices.
Upgrade your look in 2020 by picking the accessories that will make you stand out. Plan your accessories now, and you’ll be wardrobe-ready when the summer finally returns.
