ACCESSORIES TAKE CENTER STAGE


DESIGN ON A DIME II


GREAT


July’s “Great Design on a Dime” was so popular that I’ve decided to repeat its theme for August! This month though it’s all about accessories. Accessories can take an outfit from blah to bananas. A man’s sartorial choices for acces- sories show the world and those around him, who he truly is. For August we’re talkin’ sunglasses, hats, watches, totes and shoes. Accoutrements not only make the outfit, they also make the man!


1. SUNGLASSES A summer staple, sunglasses


are not just for protection but are a status symbol. Choose a classic style to sport season after season.

Style Note: A blast of color adds wonderful whimsy to any look!
