You might have seen from my previous post about attending the Dolce and Gabbana Alta Sartoria Show. Within that collection, one thing that I thought looks beautiful was the laced fedora hats. Here is a quick and simple way to get that hat, costing less then 30 pounds.
First you will need to look for a fedora hat that fits you and try to look for ones that do not have any décor on it. Such as ribbons, pompoms, and etc. Then get a laced headband that is just around the same circumference as the hat. Wrap the headband around the hat, allowing half of the lace on the brim and the rest on the main body. Kind of like making a 90-degree angle. Just like that you have a laced fedora hat!

Clip-on Earring as Lapel Pins/Brooch
More and more men have dress their suits up with lapel pins. Depending on the occasion, the pin can be extravagant or minimalist. Brands such as Burberry, have recently added to their collect with very extravagant bijoux pins, or Lanvin, with the simplistic jeweled pins. These can go from 100 to 700 pounds per pin.
So I am here to get you the look for less. Hey, you might even have all you need with you right now. First look for a pair of nice clip on earring, (TIP: try amazon) and avoid hoop earrings. Depending if you want the extravagant look, choose a dangle one, or a simple stud style design for the minimal look. Then choose a suit that have the lapel hole built in and clip the earing on using the opening. There you go, you have just made your suit look like a million bucks! If you live with a lady that wears clip-on earrings, you might be able to borrow one, and if not, get a clip-on converter and you can extend your range of earring choice!
