Whenever it comes to styling outfits be it formal or casual wear, every little detail matters. Your outfit can be one to remember or a hit-and-miss, all because it wasn't accessorized well.
Accessories like your belt, socks, jewellery, shoes play a vital role in taking an outfit from basic to next level.
Accessories are often taken as an optional thing when it comes to putting an outfit together. Often we don't realize the errors that we make while matching one's accessories. Such a minimal step can transform your whole look and be the difference between a plain old meeting and a kickass first impression.
Here are 4 guidelines one must consider sacred when it comes to matching accessories:1. Match Your Belt To Your Shoes

Let's start with accessory basics, shall we? Most men know this rule already but do they actively consider it while dressing up? Here's why this is a crucial step in accessories. You need to match your belt to your shoes. Like a black belt, shoes should be worn with black shoes, a brown belt should be worn with brown footwear. Making the look uniform in colour keeps the aesthetic on point and makes you look professional.2. Select The Right Tie

Matching one's tie to their outfit is an essential step. Any old tie thrown on a shirt wouldn't compliment your outfit unless it goes with the colour scheme of the look.
The right tie should stand out but have some elements of the theme of the outfit. Be careful while choosing a printed tie and remember to go for darker colours as they are more versatile. Also, your pocket squares should match your tie in some way or the other. Be it the same colour, print or pattern.3. Matching Metals Is A Thing Too

Yes. You read that right. Be it the frame of your glasses, watch, cufflinks or belt buckle, metals play an important part in making your outfit look as coherent as possible. Make sure it's all from the same metal family as shiny objects draw attention and are easily noticeable. This step would add finesse and symmetry to your outfit. Mind your metals, lads!4. Choose The Right Sunnies

Sunglasses are not just for the sun, they contribute an extra layer of style to your outfit. Choose your sunnies according to the setting you're planning to wear them in. The tint of your sunglasses should compliment the colour scheme of your outfit and make you stand out. Choose a rectangle or an aviator in a light tint for formal occasions and reflective sunglasses in a round or wayfarer style for more casual outings.
See? It's the little details that separate boys from men.
