Let me tell you why menswear rocks and sometimes womenswear doesn't. The simplicity! The slow moving tortoise of menswear to the fast moving hare that is womenswear are like night and day when it comes to things like care, not to mention accessorizing. A polished strong watch, perhaps some cufflinks with a classic flair and a tasteful tie and hanky combo that don't produce a rendition of 'Send In The Clowns' is easy enough to make a statement usually.
Now let me tell you why womenswear rocks and sometimes menswear doesn't. Not every man wants the simple, the clean the classic. As modern times is evidence of, more men nowadays want to create a similar flair to their female counterparts. However, and this is what rocks for the ladies, the options are more heavily available for women than they are for men. Menswear, while more adopting to change, still remains that slower moving animal. Especially when it comes to accessories. Well thankfully, the pictures painted, references suggested and characters paid homage to are what lie in women's accessories that liven up the doldrum than can be that little black skirt suit, matronly shift or holiday cocktail frock.
Now speaking of the holiday, most women want to shine like that star in the east and there are countless ways in which to adorn the ear, dazzle the wrist and liven up those collar bones in order to do so. However, with all the holiday hustle and bustle aka crap to deal with, parties to keep track of and dresses to squeeze into to hide the love of egg nog, isn't it much easier to have a strong rotation of staple pieces that can create magic just as much as any dangling mistletoe would.
