Must have summer accessories for men in 2024 - to stand out

It might not seem obvious but summer is actually prime time for accessorizing.

Why? Because when the temperature soars, every guy is going to walk out in the same shorts and shirt combo and white sneakers.

Not all accessories are made equal however, so buckle up, and pick from this list of best accessories for summer 2024.

Show a little personality
Amidst the sea of white shirts and shorts, how do you set yourself apart? The answer lies in injecting personality into your outfit with statement pieces.

Start with a simple pendant and rings. We recommend titanium rings because they’re lightweight and non-allergenic. Titanium catches the sunlight in all the right ways, making it a standout choice.

Finally, you need bead bracelets. Any summer outfit is incomplete without a ‘beach vibe’ and bead bracelets will help you do just that. Besides, they look better than watches for casual places.

Get a statement belt
Don't overlook the power of a good belt. It's the unsung hero that can breathe new life into even the most basic outfit.

For summer 2024, opt for woven or braided leather belts, or go for a canvas version for a more relaxed vibe.  They can inject new life into a plain pair of chinos and shirt if done right. For this summer, go for a woven or braided leather belt or even a canvas version. They'll add some much needed texture to your summer fits.

Add a Chest bag
Nothing ruins an outfit like bulky protruding pockets. And that’s a problem for summer because there are no heavy jeans or jacket pockets to hold your stuff. Shorts and linen pants don’t look good with a fat wallet and phone crammed inside.

To solve this, get a cross body bag. They’re perfect for keeping your essentials close at hand without weighing you down, crossbody bags are both practical and stylish.

Smell like summer

Finally, you need summer fragrances. The perfect colognes for summer are non-heavy and have citrus, floral, or aquatic notes that evoke the feeling of sunshine and ocean breezes. Here are a few recommendations:

Armaf club de Nuit intense men: Long lasting woody scent with notes of citrus

Jacques bogart silver scent: Lemon minty fragrance that’s also long lasting

Light Blue by Dolce & Gabbana: With notes of Sicilian lemon, apple, and cedarwood, this fragrance is reminiscent of a breezy day by the sea.

Jo Malone London Wood Sage & Sea Salt: This unisex fragrance blends earthy sage with fresh sea salt and driftwood, evoking memories of coastal walks and sandy beaches.

Sensitivities to Smells: What You Need To KnowThere you go,

We’ve mentioned the most neglected accessories here but we’re assuming you’ve already got the essentials down…like sunglasses, no show socks etc. If you're filling all these boxes, you're ready to experience a stylish summer.
