It’s the Little Extras That Count

There’s an old saying that “clothes make the man.” Well we’d argue that it’s the shoes (and belts, and wallets, and jewelry, and bags) that make the man or woman. Well-chosen accessories can tie the whole look together – a look that started with well-chosen shoes, of course!

At Dardano’s, we aren’t just about shoes. We have a very nice collection of accessories for men and women. Take a look at what we have to offer you to help you put the finishing touches on your look.

Accessories for Men:

Socks:

Smartwool Men’s New Classic rib socksWhat goes on before Dardano’s shoes? In most cases, it’s a pair of socks. We’ve got you covered there with Smartwool Men’s New Classic rib socks ($17.95) just right for work.

Smartwool also has men’s feet covered for more adventurous times with the Men’s PHD Outdoor Lt. Crew ($20.95). For sports, Smartwool has a Men’s PHD Run Ultra Micro ($15.95) sock with a low profile.

Belts: 

A belt does more than just hold up one’s pants. It defines a waist and finishes off a well-chosen look. Whether you believe in matching your belt to your shoes, we have belts to enhance your wardrobe. Take, for instance this Johnston & Murphy Woven Dress Belt ($79.95). The texture adds interest.

Johnston & Murphy Double Calf Belt Or, this Johnston & Murphy Double Calf Belt in a cognac shade ($49.95). This one could go from professional to casual with a quick change of the trousers.

Wallets:

A good wallet is one of those accessories that always needs to be practical but only occasionally has to show off its good looks. Like when you reach for it to offer to pay for that important business lunch. Then it needs to impress as much as your presentation did. Good thing there are wallets like the Osgoode Marley ID Front Picket Clip ($25.95). There are pockets for credit cards, a spring steel money clip and an ID window for your essentials.

Osgoode Marley also make the Flipfold Wallet ($43.95. This time, there are seven credit card pockets, a specific ID window and a bill compartment inside.

Messenger/Laptop Bags/Backpacks:

Keen Keizer Commuter BagOnce you start filling this Keen Keizer Commuter Bag ($130.00) and see how much you can put in it – lunch, workout clothes, an extra pair of shoes, etc., you’ll wonder how you ever did without it. Slip it on and it’s a classic bike-commuter bag that you can also use to safely house your laptop with multiple pockets to keep everything organized.

Accessories for Women:

Socks:

A variety of cuts of shoes requires a variety of cuts of socks for women. Take, for instance, the Smartwool Women’s Secret Sleuth ($12.95) with a low, stay put cut. Or the pretty crew sock, Smartwool Women’s Flowering Lark ($19.95) peeking out from under trousers.

And so many times, a beautiful pair of tights are just what an outfit calls for, like these Smartwool The Tight II in black or charcoal ($46.95).

Jewelry:

We have unique jewelry options that go well with our shoes, belts, bags and other accessories. The Hobo Be Unique Bracelet ($26.00) with premium leather construction and a split strap design has nickel finished bead ornaments. It comes in a variety of colors.


Wallets:

 The Hobo Metro Slide wallet omething so functional needn’t be boring. The Hobo Metro Slide wallet ($64.00) in red keeps everything handy while looking very stylish. That’s just one of a wide variety of styles we have.

Handbags and Totes:

Check out the unique detailing of the Baggallini Delight bag ($64.95) which comes in a variety of colors. The look of a knitted cover makes it a conversation piece while it holds a large amount inside.

Backpacks/Messenger/Laptop Bags: 

The Keen Keizer Commuter Bag ($130.00) isn’t just for men. With its cavernous main compartment, laptop sleeve and organizational pockets, women will love it and find many uses for it too. But women get a few more choices like this really clever Ellington Charlie Backpack Purse ($259.00) that converts from should bag to backpack with a simple tug on the straps! With vintage Italian leather, the look is broken in but the function is practical.

Keen’s Adele Computer Bag ($85.00) is an attractive workhorse of a bag with a stylish, streamlined design that holds a laptop and interior organizer pockets. The exterior has a large, file-sized pocket plus places for a water bottle, phone, keys and other essentials. As an extra, the adjustable strap can go from shoulder bag to cross body bag in an instant.

You’ll look truly put-together with Dardano’s accessories. Find the right looks for you.
