Male accessories are becoming steadily more colourful, original and interesting. They provide a means for men who are somewhat wary of too much colour in their clothes to try a little more zest in the extras.

Ties have always added colour, almost their raison d'etre now. However, simply adding a garishly patterned tie to acchankies.jpglift an otherwise rather dreary suit - some TV pundits are guilty here - just shows the wearer doesn't really have taste. A tie should have some relation to the shirt or suit with which it is worn.

The brilliant tones of the pocket hankies here may pick up on a more subdued shade in a shirt. They should not be colour-matched with a tie but be left to provide their own burst of colour, the tie plainer and more subdued.

accwatches.jpgWatches have embraced colour , especially at the less pricey level but also now at levels that are certainly not throw-away. Long gone are the days when a watch was the one and only, with a wardrobe of them now providing plenty of time for change.

And though formal hats stay steadfastly neutral, more casual designs, as here, provide a heady mix of colours. There are also colourful straw trilbies that are in favour with young men about town.

Sunglasses have long accyellowtime.jpgsince stopped being just about the sun. This summer's versions are particularly chunky and macho, but generally with dark frames rather than colours. Watch for more colour next summer.
