Typically my view is that clothing should be functional first. There are, however, some accesories that I wear only to add an extra element to an outfit.
It’s okay to have a little fun with your clothes. If anything, it shows confidence and comfort.
Here, three ways to use a simple “neckerchief” to give your look a new spin.
1. Rugged & Cool
A neckerchief puts the emphasis on the details, and can turn a simple look into a well thought out one.
Put some thought into your fabric selections. It doesn’t have to look dandy, or un-masculine.
Bonus Tip: If you’re going to try the neckerchief, tie it low on the neck so it only peeks out from under the shirt. Buttoning one extra button can help keep it subtle as well.
Bonus Tip II: A “neckerchief” is simply a triangular cut of fabric (or a bandana folded in half).
Bonus Tip III: Love Clarks original desert boots, but want something that will set your feet apart a little? Invest in a well-made pair of chukka boots, you can find them anywhere. Not only are they more comfortable, durable and can be dressed-up, next to a pair of Clarks they are like men next to boys.
Bonus Tip IV: I’m not a big fan of chambray (or denim for that matter) in the summer. Early fall is the best time to break it out. Keeping a seasonal wardrobe not only looks more appropriate year-round, it also gives you clothing to look forward to wearing every season.
