Boys can Accessorize Too!

Boys Formal Accessories:  We always hear about girls accessorizing and how the “accessories make the outfit.” Well, why don’t we ever hear about boys accessories? Boys’ accessories are just as important to their attire, especially formal attire, as girls’ accessories. Many people just don’t associate boys with accessories. Regardless, there are many ways boys can accessorize to enhance their appearance.
For example, a few simple accessories can be a boy’s chain necklace, a ring, bracelet or a hat. It’s odd how these items are considered accessories for girls, but not boys. However, there are several accessories that play an important part of boys’ attire. These include socks, belts and ties. There are certain types of socks a boy needs to wear with dress clothes. Likewise, those same socks would not look right with jeans. Boys’ belts are the same way. A belt designed to be worn with slacks or a suit will not look appropriate with a pair of jeans. But, if one wears that particular belt with slacks, it immediately makes him look sharper in appearance. There are also casual belts that will enhance his appearance when he’s wearing jeans.
Other ways boys can accessorize is when they are wearing dress clothes. Many boys do not think a shirt is an accessory, but more of a necessity. Yes, it is necessary to wear a shirt, but if you pick the right shirt it acts more like an accessory. This is particularly true if you are wearing a black suit. For example, a white dress shirt is considered normal, but what if you wore a crimson red shirt? The shirt is now an accessory. And, you can make your outfit look even better when you put a black formal tie on with it. Don’t think this accessorizing is just for older boys and men. Little boys can get in on it too.
