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.
