Witty Accessories

We live in a very stressful age. These days fashion all about seriousness and being appropriate for each occasion. One way to lighten up your days is by wearing playful, yet tasteful accessories. It’s a great way to feel like a child again without being icky, and even put a smile on other people’s faces. So below I am presenting some witty accessories that, in my opinion, can be casually worn without undermining your outfit.

The Moustache Tie-holder.
As you all have surely noticed, moustaches have been in since the last year. Moustache themed accessories came in hand in hand, to take place as a funny retro looking touch on your everyday dressing. I’ve seen many of them, from socks to mustache patterned shirts, but this simple tie holder can be elegant enough not to exaggerate the hole outfit.

Eyeglasses-Patterned Socks.
Socks are a small part of your outfit, but providing you are wearing plain-coloured pants you can play with different styles and patterns on socks. I like the playfulness of these ones, as they are neutral and can me worn with almost anything.

Gold Anchor Bracelet.
Anchors were the main theme of the last summer and hopefully they are here to stay. Anchors can add to a classy suit as well as enrich a casual look. From cufflinks to belts and buttons, anchors, and generally nautical themed clothing, is a great way to celebrate the summer. Captains are cool, aren’t they?

Warbler Pin.
I love pins and brooches. Made of gold, brass, iron or even suede or wood, I thing it’s a kind of male jewelry that we all missed. Fortunately they’re not just for girls anymore. I find this warbler pin fascinating. Its neutral theme and discrete size can make for a great subtle decoration to your dull shirt.

Vintage Map Watch.
I don’t know what it is that makes vintage maps so cool, but I’m really fond of them. This one is classy but not necessarily formal. The leather strap can be really versatile, while the vintage map background makes it really interesting.

Skull Earrings.
I always wear a pair of earrings. It’s the only part, of my teenage years as a goth kid, I am holding onto. I would definitely wear this pair of golden skulls without second thought. In my opinion we should all outgrow the taboo of wearing skulls, we are not in the 80s anymore. Either with a rock look, or a casual night out, these skull earrings are enough to give you a load of bad-boy confidence.

Nerdy Cufflinks.
Nerd is the new jock. It is obvious from the sudden explosion of comicbook-based cinema to the comeback of suspenders and big glasses. I know we are not in high school anymore, but nerd-style is the latest fad now. So why not play with it a little? And since everybody loves Star Wars, this Stormtrooper cufflinks can only be shadowed by… maybe Darth Vader cufflinks.
