    Currently obsessed with the color red, any ideas for a good way to incorporate more of it without having to buy multiple red shirts, etc? I picked up a red gingham shirt and really like it so I'm thinking a versatile red accessory is the way to go next.

    I'm picturing maybe a red dialed watch, a belt with red accents...what else is there? I'm a CPA and our office is business casual, shirt and no tie is the norm. Thanks!

    How about cufflinks? Tasteful black sunglasses with a hint of red/red stripe, etc. On more casual days, one of those web or cloth belts (like navy with a red stripe down the middle). Monday mornings, red eyes might suffice...

    I picked up some red silk knots at Macy's, they come in a pack with some other colored knots as well. I like the idea of red shoe laces too, didn't consider those.

    These sometimes are available in a burgundy/dark red. This guy here in the forum sells red bracelets, too...

    Canvas belts with red in them. Nice red pen in shirt pocket (since you're an accountant).

    Red is an awful color for mens clothing. there are a few shades/patterns in ties/shirts that work, but 9 out of 10 guys will get it wrong.

    I'm always the 1 in 10 that gets it perfectly. [​IMG]

    Burgundy socks generally work very well for me. Bright red socks don't really do it for me most of the time, though. If you're hoping for a more vivid red maybe cufflinks or an accent color in a pocket square.
