Him vs Her: Must Have Accessories For Summer

The battle of the sexes is always an interesting conflict.  So we took it upon ourselves to challenge a male and female accessory lover, to tell us what they thought this summers must have mens accessory is.  Below you will find the first installment from our male writer.

A lot of men disregard layering in the summer complaining “its too hot to layer.” The thing is, designers and retailers do check the weather. They adapt their pieces perfect for warmer weather when the SS season hits. Heavy weight cotton blazers become lightweight linen blazers, heavy knit cardigans become loose, lightweight cardigans, and the list goes on. Now taking into consideration layering is OK in the summer, today I want to talk about mens summer scarves.

Scarves are always acknowledged as a winter accessory but this season things have changed. Lightweight acrylic scarves have become extremely popular, along with neckerchiefs. Wear a summer scarf draped lightly around your neck, focusing on the design and colour to add a vibrant touch to your style. It’s not going to increase any heat, and the simple addition of a lightweight summer scarf is going to dramatically transform your look.

Herschel bags keep it in the family

The story of Herschel begins in the early 1900’s, in Wick, Scotland.  Then after a trip across the Atlantic and a family business handed down through the generations, backpacks and bags are still being created today.  They are created with American heritage, world travel and fashion firmly routed within every bag.  We salute you Herschel, good job.

Walk with a Swagger and Swoon someone with a bow tie

Zelia Horsley makes us fancy

In 2008 the jewellery world was introduced to Zelia Horsley (Twitter - @ZELIAHORSLEY, Facebook - Zelia Horsley). She moved fast, and was named as a “HOT 100” nexgems sponsored by SWAROVSKI. She knew that everyman needed some fabulous in his life, and so she introduced the world to her collection "FANCY MAN" which is an extravagant, manly, wearable range for men. 

 Keep up the good work girl, and make us all a little more 'fancy', but not in a French kind of way.

Boga wants your skin

Another beautiful find from Turkey in the form of Boga jewellery.  Boga is run by Levent Ă–zbek and he specialises in mens cuff links but also does so much more... We are loving the animal skin used across their different pieces from snake, crocodile, stingray, ostrich leather, tortoise shell and horn.
