Making a statement is as much about the accessories you pick, as it is about your outfit. The simplest way to make a statement is through an interesting laptop bag or slim hold-all. Not only does it help you make a statement, it is an accessory that you can change easily to create different looks. For the adventurous, we’re recommending one with a geometric print. However, if you prefer sticking to classic prints and patterns, a crocodile-skin one in interesting colours such as deep red and cobalt blue is perfect.
Textured shoes often get dismissed for being too ostentatious, but if you pick the right pair, it is just what you need to elevate your everyday suit. Stick to classy finishes because you want the shoes to amp up your outfit instead of bringing it down.
If you find yourself pulling out the same black tuxedo jacket at all formal parties, it’s definitely time for an update. Stay true to black-tie dressing by picking a classic silhouette. However, feel free to experiment with fabric and colour. Sport a rich-hued velvet one that’s perfect for days when there’s a slight nip in the air.
