Joe Ottaway is a professional menswear stylist and image consultant.  He’s best known for his modern sartorial style, using simple yet classic methods.  Joe styles some of the world’s most famously dapper gentlemen.

This week Joe offers some top tips on styling accessories into your attire.  It’s something that’s often overlooked but can make all the difference.

 

1.The Tie

Joe says:

Invest in a knitted tie. The texture adds a great touch.

Using a windsor knot is very classic, but make sure to wear it with a cut away collar.

2. The Pocket Handkerchief

Joe says:

Never forget a handkerchief in your blazer breast pocket.  It brings focus to your chest and away from your stomach.

Also the colour and pattern doesn’t necessarily need to match your tie.

3.The Vital Touches

Joe says:

Sunglasses are a great addition.  Try Persol or a great young British brand, Finlay & Co.

Last but not least, good socks are by far the best way to inject character into your outfit.
