Accessories are pieces of clothing, jewellery and other items that add something to an outfit. They can add colour, contrast or interest to a look and they are usually worn to reflect an individual’s style or fashion preferences. They can also be used to add personality and flair to an outfit or to express one’s unique personality.
From hats to handbags, a well-chosen accessory will complement any wardrobe and add a finishing touch. They can be seasonal — sandals for summer or scarves for winter – or may be chosen to add a touch of class or a hint of humour. Accessories are often made by small businesses, and when purchased from these companies you will be supporting them and helping them to remain in business.
The word accessory comes from the Latin word accessorius, meaning to add. A good accessory enhances or improves a thing, adding to its usefulness, convenience, attractiveness or safety, such as a flash light for a car. It can also refer to a person who assists another to commit a crime, for example, the man who distracted the old lady while the other guy stole her purse was an accessory to the theft.
Men’s accessories are a great way to elevate any outfit and they come in a wide variety of styles. Meqnes belts are a perfect example of accessories that effortlessly blend functionality and fashion. They can add a sense of luxury to the most casual of ensembles, or they can add gravitas and sophistication to a suit or tuxedo dress.
