Fellas, the days of summer are long gone and the new season is officially here. However, being ushered in to fall doesn't mean your wardrobe has to get turned down. Colors and prints can still reign supreme. And instead of copping new clothes, you really only need a few add-ons to elevate your current masculine style. These accessories will serve your closet well, and nothing will set you back more than $75.
For the Gentleman
Aldo Coccino Watch ($25, aldoshoes.com)
Though everyone seems to tell time with their phone, there's nothing more suave than a man with a fly watch. This timepiece takes any button down and trousers from basic to sharp.
For the Boho
Forever 21 Multi-Stripe Scarf ($10, forever21.com)
It's not cold enough for a heavy wool scarf, but a fairly lightweight one is an essential transition accessory. Wear it under a leather jacket to add luxe texture. If you typically shy away from color or prints, the scarf is a quick way to change it up a bit.
For the Businessman
Zara Combination Messenger Bag ($70, zara.com)
What's a step up from the backpack, but not as formal as the briefcase? The answer: a messenger bag. Not only will it hold your essentials for the day (wallet, phone, tablet… little black book maybe?), the neutral hue is sure to go with your daily fits.
For the Risk Taker
J.Crew Factory Cotton Braided Bracelet ($10, factory.jcrew.com)
Bracelets don't have to be dainty and feminine, especially thanks to materials like braided leather, medium sized beads or stainless steel. It's rugged and wearable for men.
For the Trendy
Topman Fluorescent Smart Belt ($32, topman.com)
You've got belts, probably plenty of them. And we bet most of them are black or brown. Those are staples, but every now and then you need to keep them guessing. Sure, it's pretty loud, but when worn with dark denim or navy trousers, it's just enough.
