Accessories can be an excellent way to exhibit your style and personality without speaking a single word. Done right, your ensemble can be a pure reflection of who you are.

Here are 2016’s hottest men’s accessories.

Scarf

Scarves are manly! There is hardly anyone left who hasn’t tried on men’s scarves. While some seasons demand the need for one, ultra light, longer scarves are almost perennial (sans summer) in many areas. And then there are summer scarves!  Depending on how you wear it, a scarf can be a subtle or a bold fashion statement; but a discernible one for certain.

Sunglasses

Ah! Do these not go without saying? So far it seems that 2016 is a year for round shades. Now we know what you’re thinking – unless you have cheekbones that can save the world, rocking round shades may not really be an option for you. But that’s not really the case. Most round sunglasses this year feature enough taper to look good on any face shape. Try on a couple before you make your mind up.

Look out for premium, exquisite backpacks

Backpacks

Backpacks are all the rage this season. Let’s be honest, backpacks have been popular for a while now but this year is speculated to take the trend to new heights! 2016 has already seen designers moving from low-hanging, bright stripes and large sizes to high-end, more ‘grown up’, leather designs, and we expect this trend to continue.

Baseball caps

Baseball caps are still here! Out with the oversized, New Era style caps, street style has a new favorite. Confident, relaxed, bent brims and texture – wool and leather baseball caps are expected to grab and hold all the attention.
