Men’s Accessories Part I: Scarves

Lupe Fiasco loves sportin’ scarves

I often meet guys who feel like their style needs more. . .they like the way they dress, but they want to be able to stretch their look- meaning they want to be able to wear the same outfit in different ways. Well, the best way to diversify your style is to add accessories. The most basic accessory is a belt, but that’ s more of a necessity. . .we’ll talk about belts another day.

Below are the accessories that can enhance any man’s look if worn properly, I will write about each of the accessories one or two at a time over the next few weeks:

1. Scarves
2. Ties
3. Hats
4. Suspenders/Braces
5. Shades
6. Glasses
7. Out-of-the-box accessories

Lets start with Scarves.

Scarves have hit the hip-hop scene hard ever since Pharrell, Lupe, and Kanye began wearing them and it’s a trend that will be around for awhile. I know there are some people who are getting tired of see people sporting the same black and white “arab scarf”, but hey “what are you gonna do”, lol. . . I think it’s cool to have a scarf or two around, it’s something extra to have in your wardrobe and it almost instantaneously gives you a “hollywood look”.

It seems like every male celebrity wears scarves these days:

Pharrell tends to rock designer scarves only

Lil Wayne has been wearing scarves alot recently, above he’s
at the BET Awards after party. He wore a red and white scarf
during his latest MTV performance of “A millie”

Jay-Z

Jermaine Dupri and Chris Brown

Kanye West

Like I somewhat mentioned earlier, the basic scarf in the “arab scarf”, it comes in a variety of colors usually black and a bright color. I think this is a good choice for men who want to play it safe, but remember that “arab scarves” worn by men usually give off a more hip-hop look.

Those who want a classic and clean look should avoid that type of scarf. Focus on getting silk-type scarves that are more neutral in color and that you could possibly wear years from now. This scarf is and should be timeless in look and it’s the type I highly recommend for Urban Gentleman.

You can buy these scarves anywhere and everywhere now. . .I recommend 3 places:

1.) Amazon.com – they have a great variety for great prices
2.) Mall (from GAP to Urban Outfitters)- you will be able to find the trendiest styles at your local mall.
3.) your local thrift store – shopping here allows you to be unique, if you spend the time searching you could possibly find a designer scarf for a really really really cheap price.

Check out these scarves:

For in-store designer scarves: Barneys and Neiman Marcus
(scarves are often seen as either unisex or for women in the retail world, so you may have to visit the women’s accessories area to find these types scarves.)

You can now buy the EXACT scarves Lil’Wayne and Kanye West wear (plus many more) at The Urban Gentleman Store, click HERE.
