Back To The Fashionable Future

Keeping up with fashion is such a chore. Entire magazine racks are dedicated to public information announcements about animal print and leather jackets and thigh-high boots and even whether your wireless or Bluetooth earphones are in fashion. It changes by the day. You could lose sleep over such tight deadlines. It’s hard to keep up. Thankfully, there are a couple of retro fashion staples – more accessories really – that will never go out of fashion and can be the cherry on the cake for almost all tastes in dress sense. Don’t believe us? Let’s take a look at some top ideas you can keep within arm’s reach to help provide the finishing touches to your forays into fashion.

Glasses for all occasions

Old skool cool glasses come to no old-skooler and certainly no cooler than retro browline glasses. These frames suit all occasions, from the boardroom to the ballroom and even to the bar afterward for a nightcap. As you would expect from the name, browline glasses highlight the brow area, which is one of the most expressive parts of the face. By highlighting a solid brow, your look will instantly benefit from becoming more mature and worldly-wise. Popularised in the 1950s, this style of frames has never gone out of fashion. People simply love to don a pair of browlines to give the impression of a more grown-up attitude. Want to set off your look with nuances of sophisticated and well-seasoned maturity? Browline glasses have the answer. 

Digital wristwatches

Remember when we were children? Every kid on the block had a digital watch and every adult had boring old analog-style timepieces strapped to their arms. Fast forward to the modern-day and digital watches are back with a bang. Multiple big brands offer a yearly range of digital styles, with popular colors including all gold, all silver, and all black. Although some brands have experimented with the full calculator look (remember those? With the tiny buttons? Yeah, more of a gimmick than actually practical or useful), but we’d recommend sticking to the original simple digital face for a simple retrograde style that will add an element of fun and individuality to all settings without going over the top. And yes, this style of watch can even work well with workwear and evening attire. But a word of warning – everyone will want to take a look!
