We all need to get our accessories game on. So we at Wabisabiluxury have compiled a quick style guide of the must have accessories every man should be carrying this year!
Even though the number of accessories available for men are much lesser than that for women, we thought that shouldn’t stop you from looking your stylish best. So this list should help you look stylish all year long!

 

1) Watch: To add that oomph factor to any look. The perfect watch is a must! Though everyone is now moving towards the digital watch we at WabiSabiLuxury find a winding watch very romantic.

If you are looking to invest in a new watch might we suggest: the Rolex or the Breitling

2) Sunglasses: The sun is out & now it’s the perfect time to find a great pair of shades. The most important thing before buying a pair of glasses is determining your face shape whether it is round, oblong, square, triangular or oval. Once you have figured out your face shape, next step is picking glasses that will compliment your features.

If you are planning to buy a new pair of shades, make sure that you buy either Ray Ban or Barkley.

3) Belt: Whether it is a casual wear or a formal wear, a look isn’t complete without one thing i.e. Belt. Be it a job interview or an important business meeting where you can’t really show off your wardrobe, a good belt is enough to show off your fashion credentials. They could be worn with jeans, chinos, shorts and trousers, makes it one of the important things every man should have in his closet.

6) Pocket Square: Pocket Square adds a sense of gentlemanism to a man’s outfit. Pocket squares are often not given as much importance as it should get. The fabric of pocket square should look rich & depending on your look, there are different ways to fold a pocket square to match your mood.

7) Bag: All the men out there, keep your style game on point and just like your t-shirts & shirts, have a collection of different bags can be carried anywhere to enhance your look. Why spending so much effort to look sharp only to ruin it all with an average-looking bag? Be it a lavish leather bag for office or a funky bag to college, add that little extra to your look.

Here are our favourite strap bags that will never fail to grab people’s attention. It’s time to look sharper.

8) Scarf: A lot of men think that scarves are for ladies & they avoid even being in the 100 meter radius of the scarves section in the malls. Men need to understand that it does not only keep your neck warm but a simple rectangle of fabric could do wonders to your overall look.

You could get scarves anywhere with different big as well as local brands but these are our personal favourites.

9) Pen: We understand that digitalization has replaced mobiles with pens & there is no need of a pen to note down anything but will a mobile phone ever replace the man’s look that a fountain pain in his shirt pocket gives? We don’t think so.

Have a look at these fountain pens which will perfectly fit into your shirt pockets & enhance your overall look.

10) Socks: The best thing about socks is that you are allowed to experiment with them with the least amount of risk of someone noticing your experiment. When it comes to formal wears, socks add a simplicity to your look.

Estee Lauder: Makeup Saviour

How a plain looking bottle of foundation delivered unexpected results.

We love make up and not just the regular “Oooo I need makeup so i’ll get some”, we love make up in a way that getting the right primer to the final lipgloss is discussed like art (make up is an art). A cupboard full of foundation bottles just because we wanted to try it is how much we love make up!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Make up is one such foundation, living in a city that is always HOT with a schedule that is always tight we’ve come to understand that we need make up that lasts all day long and if it fails to deliver, well then it’s time to break up.

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place foundation was one relationship that we held onto.

What the company promises:

A 15-hour, flawless foundation that stays looking fresh and natural through heat, humidity, and nonstop activity.

blogpost

Well we did not need to hear more, from picking it up at the store to placing it in my Gucci Sylvie Leather Bag our beautiful relationship began.

Keeping my oily skin in mind I applied a light primer recommended by my dermatogolist and using my hands put some foundation on my face.

I am a sucker for beauty blenders so I used a slightly damp beauty blender from Forever21 to dab the foundation covering all areas of my face and neck. (Many forget to apply it on your neck area but it’s important you do so, unless you want to look two toned and avoid all kinds of photography..eh..I didn’t think so either)

Result? I’ll let the comments answer

12pm(Receptionist): “You look very fresh”

2:00pm (Post lunch when i’m almost sleepy): “You don’t look tired at all”

6:00pm(Office Colleague): “Heading somewhere special today?”

9:00pm (Mom): “Are you coming from back from a party?You look pretty fresh, did you go to work?”

In short: It lasted ALL DAY LONG! Beautifully covered my under eye circles, blemishes and stayed on like a second skin. Does not feel heavy on your skin at all and keeps you looking fresh with very little product.

This is one relationship I am holding onto for a very long time, you should try it too.

Tip: Get the foundation that matches your skin, check it under white lights and keep the patch on a little while to see how well it suits your skin.
