Since luxury wristwatch are made with precision and quality, you can be sure that they will last you for many years to come. So, to complete your outfit, get a beautiful timepiece that perfectly suits your style or preference.
Washable cloth mask
Vaccines may be rolling out, but that doesn’t mean you should stop wearing a face mask. You can easily get surgical masks, but let’s be honest, they look boring. Also, disposable masks can get expensive in the long run and aren’t good for the environment. So, get a washable cloth mask (or two) that you can get a ton of use from. Choose your favorite colors or printed ones that match most of the outfits in your closet. In the long run, you’ll save more money and the environment in the long run!
White sneakers are probably the most versatile footwear you can get! You can match them easily with any outfit, may it be casual or semi-formal. And if you get ones in leather, you can even get away with it on formal occasions! Sneakers are comfy to wear on long walks and casual short strolls, so get a fresh pair for yourself for going out.
Reusable face shield
Another one on our list is an essential that’s perfect for this pandemic. Just like disposable face masks, there are also disposable face shields. But there is already too much plastic waste daily, so you shouldn’t contribute more to it. Get a reusable face shield that you can just sanitize and keep with you wherever you go. A reusable face shield is meant to last you a long time, so it’s not flimsy like the disposable ones. Just like washable face masks, you can save money and the environment in the long run with this! Reusable face shields come in different styles, sizes, and colors, so you have more options. You can choose one that can match your wardrobe color palette, so it can look fashionable, too!
Snazzy ankle socks
Socks are so underrated nowadays. But there’s an unwritten rule that says you should match the color of your shirt with the color of your socks. When wearing pants, socks are usually hidden, but it’s nice to have a good pair of matching socks. Get fun socks that suit your style and personality since they can peep through your ankle area every now and then. A pair of snazzy socks might not be seen constantly, but knowing that you’re wearing them can uplift your mood. Socks don’t have to be just plain and boring. Show a bit of your personality with fun pairs that you can mix and match with your outfits!
Crisp white shirt
Another versatile essential to your wardrobe is a crisp white shirt. You can pair it with slacks, khaki pants, or shorts. It gives an elegant vibe without looking like you’re trying too hard. You can easily dress it up or down, according to your liking. And whether it’s a formal or casual occasion, you can wear it either way. Roll up the sleeves for a more laid-back look or keep it buttoned on your wrists for a formal look.
A tie is a small accessory that can change the overall look and vibe of your entire outfit. Such a small thing can make a big difference! Get a snazzy tie with a simple or stylish print or design—depending on your preference, of course. Express yourself with a snazzy tie and add some fun to your usual semi-formal and formal outfits.
