As classic as your suits are, it never hurts to add different accessories to finish the look and make it your own. Here are different ways to pull your outfits together, giving it personal details and characteristics.

Just when you think there is no way to make a dressy button up even dressier, cufflinks to the rescue!

There are so many different colors and styles of cufflinks. Make it more personal by getting your initials on them, making introductory hand-shakes impressive and farewells memorable.
Nothing holds an outfit together like a nice leather belt, literally and metaphorically. If you are trying to give your look a more modern feel, give your belt a sneak peek by leaving your blazer unbuttoned. When color coordinated with the right pair of shoes, belts can be a trendy detail to your outfit.
Ties and pocket squares are must-haves in every gentleman’s wardrobe. While they can be worn separately depending on occasion and personal preference, these two go hand-in-hand and are often color/style coordinated. These accessories will give your suit a fresh, clean look while making it more modern.

Just make sure not to wear them indoors or at night, you don’t want to be “that guy”.
