The Golden Rules to Accessorizing your Suit

While selecting the perfect suit for a wedding can be tedious on its own, finding an appropriate accessory for it can take all the fun out of shopping. Don’t sweat it just yet; we’ve got you covered with the Golden rules to keep in mind while looking for the right accessories to take your style game up a notch.

  1. Add color to your outfit

While the color options for suits are limited to the more demur shades of the color wheel  ; accessories are the best way to break that monotony and add color. Add a touch of pop with a bright Pocket Square and Lapel Pin or let a loud Cufflink do the trick.

  1. Don’t mix more than 3 colors in your outfit.

If your cufflinks have color, make sure it co-ordinates with your tie. The accessories are there to compliment your outfit, not overpower it.  If tempted to mix more than 3 colors, try and keep them in the same color palette.  Same goes for your lapel pin/ lapel flower, which should be in the same color family as your tie/pocket square.


3. Don’t shy away from prints

Prints can be overwhelming at times. But done in moderation, they can take your outfit to a whole new level.  A touch of printed pocket square with a coordinated Lapel Flower can be a chic addition to your outfit. Printed ties can be another fun way to pep up your plain outfit. Just take care to not mix more than one print.


  1. Do Tie / Fold the accessory appropriately.

Nothing can be a bigger fashion faux pas than a neck tie or Bow tie worn wrong. Same goes for an unkempt pocket square. Thankfully, there are plenty of tutorials out there to help us. Or just play it safe with a pre-tied Bow Tie and a simple fold Pocket square.

5.Don’t mix metals in your outfit

If you are opting for a pair of Silver cufflinks, don’t add a gold tie clip. Same goes for a lapel pin. Keep the metal same and play around with the design.

  1. Dress according to the occasion

That funky pair of cufflinks is best kept for a friend’s wedding, not a dinner with the Board members. It is important to keep in mind the occasion when opting for the accessory. For instance, the best time to flaunt that Lapel Flower is during a wedding.

  1. Knowing how many accessories to wear

Just how many accessories is too many? Fashion gurus worldwide agree that as long as the colors and patterns are well coordinated, there is no limit to how many accessories can be worn at the same time. So go on..get crazy , get dapper.
