A faithful head-gear when it comes to best caps for men and a smart choice for a fashionable accessory for men. Baseball caps have been in style for as long as I can remember and the fact that they could be worn with anything is insane and honestly life-saving. These caps are extremely comfy and super-cool.

2. Types of rings for men

We don't usually see men wearing a ring except for the one he got at his wedding. But that's going to change. Rings are one of the magical fashion accessories for men which not only defines class but adds zest to an otherwise okay-ish outfit. Go on, get a load of the list and buy one if any of it rings any bells.

Signet rings

Raised and flat-faced on a shank, signet rings come in different shapes and sizes. Guys, a signet ring can do wonders for a semi-casual look. Don into your dark shaded knitted sweater, black jeans, black sneakers and finally complete the ensemble with these rings.

Mood rings

Formerly, mood rings were actually used to detect mood. You see, these rings have a special type of crystal that changed colours based on the temperature of the bearer's finger. But today, even though they go by the same name and look similarly nifty, their job is to amp-up your style quotient gangsta style. Slip it on when wearing a loose blazer with white sneakers and probably a pendant necklace.

3. Necklace Designs For Men

For people who say necklaces are indefinitely feminine, looks like you're driving back in time. It's 2021 and a lot of things has changed. Girls can ride a motorbike and guys can wear necklaces. However, if you still need help in finding the right fashion accessory for men in the form of a super-classy necklace, here are some suggestion that might help.

Pendant necklace

Three words for this... common, popular & versatile. Pendant necklaces are one of the best kinds of necklaces for a man since they're small enough to rest comfortably against your breastbone and trendy enough to make a fashion statement.

Leather necklace with pendant

Leather necklaces should be a go-to fashion accessory for men. They're personal, minimal and add character to your basic outfit. One can wear it daily, layer it with a leather jacket or just walk breezily with a plain white t-shirt and blue denim jeans.

Chain necklace

Chain necklaces, be it square, rounded or more are a classic male adornment most popular with an off-beat street look. Usually worn with baggy t-shirts and jeans, a chain can spruce-up a super-cool ensemble in a jiffy. However, if you're feeling a bit more, layer it with another one but of a slimmer length and design.

4. Bracelets for men

Whatever may be your style, a knockout bracelet with it always separates you from the crowd. But there are some rules you can follow to be on-point every time you choose a bracelet for your outfit.

Beaded bracelet

Beaded bracelets might be an old-school way of saying that you're cool but it still works. My only advice would be to not overdo it and try to wear it when you're not too dressy.

Chain bracelet

Men often limit themselves to a single bracelet when going with a chain one. And that's probably for the best. You don't want your hand look like it's having an arm party. Regardless, my personal sense of style prefers a slick silver band over a chunky one but you toots feel free to pick up a heavy piece if it pleases you. Moreover, there's also plenty of room to add another to complete the look. The picture right here is an excellent example of what we're trying to convey.

5. Best kinds of ties

Do you know what's drop-dead gorgeous? A man wearing an impeccable tie or a bow-tie. It's one of the must-have fashion accessory for men that one shouldn't avoid.

Printed tie

Printed ties mostly look great with a plain formal shirt but there's no telling what more one can do with it until you try it out. We suggest you pick the colour of the shirt and tie of the same tone and make sure that one print should be calmer than the other. What works the best is a darker shade for the tie and lighter for the shirt, and you're good to take over the world.

Formal plain tie

Nothing says handsome and well-endowed than a simple tie with minimal pattern on a plain white shirt. It's one of the most loved fashion accessories for men and the fact that it's a risk-free fashion choice is also comforting.

6. Earrings For Men

Hear me out. If you guys wish to get your ears pierced and stick a really good earring into it, just do it. Shun the voices that tell you otherwise. Here are some basic earrings for men you got to look into.

Silver earring

Silver earrings can easily be a part of statement jewellery list for men. They are slick, don't draw too much attention and still tastefully noticeable that not only it add gravitas to a man's overall look but also separates him from the crowd.

Bling Stud

Bling is a fashionable man's game. Goes with everything you wear, however, in this case, size does matter. For a more casual, everyday look smaller bling would be your best option. But if you're going all the way with a fancy tux or suit, a bigger circle would be appreciated.

9. Cufflinks

Either you don into a stunning Suit with cufflinks or don't bother to dress-up at all. Cufflinks are one of the most underrated fashion accessories for men but a man who manages to complete his look with one is a trendsetter. If you wish for someone like that, here are some options you'd definitely appreciate.

10. Scarves & mufflers for guys

Not just to keep you warm, scarves and mufflers are great fashion accessories for men that could amp up your style to great lengths.

Silk scarves

The secret to making a fashion statement with silk scarves lies in the technique one uses to tie them. A country look with a check shirt and boot-cut jeans would need a plain scarf tied around the neck twice. A business look prefers a scarf that matches the pocket square of the suit and wrapped all over the neck in a triangular fashion. Finally, my favourite, a simple knot-printed scarf. It gives a well-dressed man a fresh look which no other fashion accessory could offer.

Protects you from cold and raises your style quotient to hot. Now, that's the kind of climatic difference every man would appreciate. I personally prefer a loose muffler with minimal design, however, you can single knot them or fold it around your neck depending on the outfit you're wearing. A business look will benefit more from a loose hanging muffler, a boy-next-door look will get attention by a single-knot.

Current Fashion Trends

Northern hemisphere fashions (North America, UK, Europe and so on)

Southern hemisphere fashions (Australia, NZ and so on)

You don't have to be trendy to be stylish. And there is certainly no need to slavishly follow a current fashion trend look -- in fact it's preferable not to! However, to keep your look contemporary it is important to incorporate at least 1 or 2 current fashion trends into your outfits. And, it can be fun to update your look, especially when you're armed with a few guidelines to make the styles you like work for you.

The most cost effective way to update an outfit is by adding one or more current fashion accessory. For example, adding a new pair of shoes or boots in a current style perhaps combined with a contemporary necklace or scarf and earrings can totally transform an outfit you already have and give it a new lease of life.

Fashion Trends Today

It used to be that a fashion trend would last a decade. Look at the 50s and 60s. Now it seems the latest fashion trends barely last a season.

However, I find on closer inspection it's not as bad as it seems. Often the main fashion trends stay the same for a few seasons in a row with minor trends coming and going more quickly. And with the more frequent changes older styles come back into fashion again more quickly!

The good news is that today's fashion trends combine into many 'looks'. And there are a number of styles for each style trend, for example when the latest pant style is skinny leg, wide, straight legs have also been in vogue. So it's usually possible to find at least one look that suits your body shape and your style personality.

Plan Your Wardrobe for the New Season

It can be confusing (and expensive) hitting the shops at the start of a new season without a plan. If you do you may well end up with items that are too similar to what you already have, or that don't go with anything else. Shopping is more productive, more fun and costs less when you have a plan that you (largely) follow. At the start of a new season it's a good idea to...

Clear out your wardrobe

Audit your wardrobe -- even if you don't do a full clear out, at the very least audit your wardrobe for gaps...

What items do you need to purchase for the coming or current season?

What is looking worn and needs replacing?

What item do you find yourself wishing you had as you get ready to go out for a daily activity or a special occasion? Make a list of things to buy.

Research the current season's trends...

What hot new trends excite you?

Will it suit you and your lifestyle needs?

Does it suit your body shape, your coloring and your personality?

Check out my observations on the latest fashion trends below.

Now go shopping. Have fun!

Making Current Fashion Trends for You

If you really like a particular fashion trend but it really isn't the most flattering look for you it helps if you can understand what it is about the style that isn't working. After all, when we buy clothing off-the-rack we probably will have to make some compromise. What's not working, is it...

The silhouette of the garment?

The length of a top, jacket, skirt, pants and so on?

The shape of the neckline?

The color?

The pattern?

An internal design line?

Understanding what it is that isn't working may allow you to minimize that element...

If the silhouette is wrong for your horizontal body shape can it be altered?

If the length is wrong for your vertical body shape can it be lengthened or shortened?

Can the neckline be changed by wearing a camisole underneath or adding a necklace or scarf?

Can the effect of the color be minimized in the ';vital V' area (the area formed between the outside of your shoulders and the center of your bust)?

Is the scale of the pattern wrong for your body scale?

Or is the color contrast of the pattern not the best for your coloring? Does the garment come in another pattern or color combination? Can you minimize the pattern in the 'vital V' area (as above)?

Is the color contrast of an internal design element low enough that the unflattering design element is minimized? Or can it be disguised, for example by wearing something such as a waistcoat over the garment?

Using these general guidelines checkout the current fashion trends below.

Women's Current Fashion Trends in the Northern Hemisphere

Although I now live in Sydney, Australia, I visit the UK once a year to visit family and friends and often manage to include a European country in that trip. Of course while I'm over there I take the opportunity to trend watch. I also lived in the US for several years and have many favorite American clothes shops that I still look at online. So, my trend watch sources for the northern hemisphere include magazines (both online and offline), online shops, fashion newsletters, online fashion forums and, once a year, visits to UK and sometimes European shops.

Women's Current Fashion Trends in the Southern Hemisphere

It used to be that if you lived in the southern hemisphere fashion trends followed those of the northern hemisphere’s previous season. For example, last season’s northern hemisphere winter trends became the fashions for this southern hemisphere’s winter season. However, southern fashion trends today aren’t that straight forward. The internet and the increasing ease with which we can buy clothes online has changed things.

The internet has made northern hemisphere fashion information and clothes available to everyone in the world at the same time. Shops in Australia selling high end European and American designer labels, for example, have to have the current northern hemisphere styles available as they’re released or be in danger of losing sales to the internet.

However there is also a growing number of great southern hemisphere designers such as Alana Hill, Carla Zampatti, and George Gross who take the current runway trends and interpret them to be relevant for the southern hemisphere season and the local lifestyle.

I live in Sydney, Australia, so my southern hemisphere new fashion trend information comes from my observations of what’s in the shops, what friends are wearing and people watching here in Sydney. These observations are supplemented with my favorite fashion trend resources including magazines and websites.
