men's accessories that are fashionable and durable for traveling

Over the past few decades, men’s fashion has finally started coming out of the shadow of women’s fashion. While fops in Victorian England abounded, men’s fashion came to a halt in the twentieth century. It seemed like the suit had become the be-all-and-end-all outfit, and we’d only ever see variations on the same theme.

One fashion statement that took a while to catch on with men is wearing accessories. There are men who consider accessories distinctly feminine, focusing on items like purses and jewelry. But more men than ever are comfortable with accessories today.

Accessories are great fashion items for when you are traveling, as they do not take up much space in your luggage and can uplift any outfit. If you're looking for fashionable travel accessories for men that won’t break in a suitcase or on a crowded train, here are some ideas.

Bold glasses frames

Many men choose glasses frames that are bland and missable. The reason is because they still associate glasses with an archaic idea of nerdiness. Old habits die hard.

However, designer men’s eyeglasses frames are anything but bland. They add a whole new dimension of fashion to a look. They can make a person immediately stand out in a crowd, creating distinction and a sense of fashion forwardness.

Bold men’s glasses frames are great for traveling because they are also durable. Unlike subtle and delicate frames, they will take more than a bit of wear and tear to break.

Moon bags for men

Moon bags, otherwise known as fanny packs, have always been very practical for travelers. The problem is that they also used to be at the very wrong end of the fashion spectrum.

But today they are one of the best travel accessories for men, and not just because of how handy they are when running around a foreign city. Moon bags have come into style, with men around the world sporting different kinds of fanny packs for the sake of fashion alone.

A modern moon bag will uplift your outfits, while remaining durable and useful throughout your trip.

Stylish backpacks

Most people associate backpacks with backpackers. That’s no big leap, after all. However, you don’t need to be staying in hostels or slumming it to wear a backpack around a new city. Even if you have a comfortable hotel or villa, it is always useful to have a small, stylish backpack with you.

Backpacks are especially useful if you don’t have a moon bag but come in handy even if you do. You can keep snacks, sunscreen, water, and all the different items you are probably going to need at some point.

A fashionable backpack will make you feel less like a tourist and more like a fashionable man with international tastes.

Travel accessories for men can be fashionable and durable at the same time. We are living in a time in which men are finding accessories fashion forward, rather than exclusively feminine. The above accessories will serve you well as you travel the world.
