12 of the hottest accessories you need to invest in this season

With spring already starting to sweep across the city, prompting us to reach for a perfectly prescribed chilled beverage, it also encourages us to start thinking a new set of style trends for the months ahead.

The best way to embrace the new season is through accessories – they're an easy way to update any look, and you can have a bit of fun along the way, too.  

Here's a breakdown of the very best picks you can add to your cart.

At eye level

Trends in sunglasses change all the time, however this season there will be a return – but not limited to – round sunglasses (top bar included, as reported earlier).

Paired back and sharp to give a classic look that can really go with any wardrobe. Think men's style icon Johannes Huebl – the guy can do no wrong.

While black and brown remain timeless, the key trend to look for is clear acetate.

This style will easily work with your existing wardrobe, whether it be weekend beachwear or head-to-toe black.

The kerchief is king

The perfect in-between of a handkerchief and a scarf, the kerchief is a great addition to any modern wardrobe.  Don't be mistaken – these aren't just seen on the polo fields or Coachella, either – they did the rounds of Pitti Uomo and the trend has really kicked off from there.

The kerchief has a double benefit, too – wear them around your neck with a collared shirt, or pop them in as a pocket square to sharpen up any look. Our pick is anything red (wear it with denim or chambray) navy & white or if you're game, a bold print or motif (Gucci has the goods).


The colour of time

One of the big trends in timepieces at the moment are pops of colour with all the big brands releasing styles with a solid colour-way (Omega, Tudor and Rolex), and bright blue dials (Tiffany & Co, Van Cleef Arpels).  Also, smartwatches are still a massive trend, with brands like Louis Vuitton having entered this space in a big way in recent months with the release of their Tambour Horizon collection. When digital dials like this drop, more screen time we say.

Keep your cash classy

It's important to keep all your cards and cash (no coins) in a sharp looking wallet, one that's going to slide into a jacket pocket with ease.  Micro-wallets have been trend for a while now, and one that is expected to continue.

Anything from the America's Cup Collection from Louis Vuitton is worth investing in. Collectible and cool, the standout is their pocket organiser with a bright yellow and white V Gaston across the front of it.

Raw materials

When it comes to your fists, the more is more trend is something that is sure to take off over the coming warmer months with more and more men wearing jewellery as a part of their accessory wardrobe.

Johnny Depp kicked this off many years ago, but still rings true as a legitimate trend if worn well.

Speaking of, rings are an easy way to embrace this trend, and we recommend silver as it can be easily matched with your watch on most occasions.
