Style On A Budget: 15 Men's Style Essentials Under $20

When men take their first meager steps toward being stylish, they worry about one thing…


At first, looking great can seem like a considerable expense – the $300 sport coats, the $200 shoes – and that's on top of the effort you need to put in.

Style On A Budget: 15 Men's Style Essentials Under $20

That's not entirely true. Believe it or not, there are a plethora of tools under $20 that can significantly upgrade your style game.

Let's talk about them…

This article is brought to you by Chassis – one of the best-selling ball powders online. I recommend it because it does the job powerfully without any burning menthol or pasty talc. 

Instead, it contains baking soda – nature’s best odor prevention. It’s not a cover-up, it actually neutralizes odor. With this powder, you'll have no chafing, no smell worries, just a clean masculine scent. Click here to check out Chassis.

Tongue Scraper Shoe Deodorizers Vitamin Soap bars A Manicure Set Body Powder Cotton Pocket Squares Thread/Woven Belts Nylon Watchbands Dress Socks A Wooden Beard Comb Tie Clip Lapel Boutonniere Money Clip Cotton Neck Tie Cedar Shoe Tree

Alright gents, let's get into it.

1. Tongue Scraper

Do you brush your teeth twice a day? Great, but the job's not finished. There are hundreds of species of bacteria that infest the tongue at any given time. For this, a stainless steel tongue scraper does the job.

A stainless steel tongue scraper will kill the germs a toothbrush may not reach.

The price is certainly worth it for better breath. They're available at prices between $7 and $10.95 on Amazon.

This budget men's style essential won't even collect mold or rust.  It's a no-brainer!

2. Bamboo Charcoal Shoe Deodorizers

If you go to the gym, then your sneakers probably stink.

Charcoal deodorizer bags are sold by numerous brands at a range of prices, but you can easily find sets for less than $10.

A pair of charcoal sacks will keep your shoes smelling fresh.

Charcoal has long been used as a natural filter for water and alcohols, as well as an odor absorbent. Simply stick them in your sneakers after the gym, and wait a few hours.

Wouldn't it be lovely to have shoes that smell as good as they look?

3. Vitamin Soap Bar

There's nothing wrong with your typical soap bar if it keeps you clean, but like all things, it could use an upgrade.

Vitamin bars are infused with vitamins such as A and E. The former helps with vision and maintaining a strong immune system. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps to reinforce your cells.

Vitamin bars will help strengthen your body, as well as cleanse it.

You can be clean, and help your body as well. They're a great tool every man should consider buying.

You can find these for about $15 in various stores.

4. A Manicure Set

A man can be absolutely diligent with his appearance, but if his nails don't look the part, then his appearance shatters.

Every man should have a complete manicure set, in fact, you NEED to have one.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a good set for over $20, making this an exceptional budget men's style essential.

5. Body Powder

There is no shortage of body powders out for men to choose from. Despite their menial differences, most of them are divided between cornstarch and talc-based powders.

There are disadvantages to both. Cornstarch doesn't last as long. Talc, while more resilient, is linked with ovarian cancer in women. If you're a lady's man, then this might prove a… difficult situation.

For reasons like these, that I'm happy to promote Chassis – a budget men's style essential that is atypical and just $19.95.

6. Pocket Squares

If you head into Men's Wearhouse, it's EXTREMELY unlikely that you'll find anything below $20. High-end silk pocket squares will cost you upwards of $70.

However, there's absolutely no shame in opting for cotton pocket squares. In fact, if you favor texture in your outfit, it's even preferable.

Pocket squares can upgrade an entire look when used correctly. Click here to learn more.

Fortunately, you can find whole sets of cotton pocket squares for $20 or less. If you're looking for a powerful accent to your latest outfits, look no further.

7. Thread Belts

Leather belts are a must to any man's wardrobe, but what if you lean on the more casual end of the spectrum?

If that sounds like you, then there are plenty of stylish belts that don't come in leather – with various patterns and colors. Unsurprisingly, they're much cheaper.

multicolored belt for men

A woven belt can be an effective means with which to add pizzazz to your outfit.

If you're looking to add some pizzaz to an outfit, then this budget men's style essential can be just as powerful as its leather counterpart.

8. Nylon Watchband

Similarly to woven belts, nylon watchbands are a great way to accent an outfit. If the watch itself is of high quality, then it's ok to mess around with different bands.

A nylon watchband is a low-cost way to experiment with colors and patterns.

Nylon bands are especially useful in hot weather, where sweat eats away at leather much quicker than in other, more temperate climates.

9. Dress Socks

I'm not going to waste your time talking about why socks are important. I am, however, going to stress the impact they can make.

colorful men's socks

Dress socks are an underestimated style tool. For less than $20, they're worth some experimentation.

In an otherwise subtle and subdued ensemble, bold dress socks can perform a function similar to that of a pocket square.

Why not experiment a little, and buy yourself a colorful pair?

10. A Wooden Beard Comb

This is for a more particular demographic of guys out there, but I felt as though they should be represented.

A wooden beard comb should run you no more than $10. Some come with a leather sheath, bringing it closer to $20.

If you're a bearded man, then a wooden comb is a must.

This budget men's style essential has a significant advantage over regular plastic combs – since the latter is made using a mold, it usually leaves behind sharped and jagged edges which are prone to catch on your facial hair. Wooden combs, however, are far less likely to do so.

This makes for a more comfortable experience.

11. Tie Clip

Not only is a tie clip a utilitarian addition to any man's wardrobe, but it also makes a strong statement. A tie clip is one of few accessories which can be showy and professional at the same time.

Clips can be put to work in professional and casual environs alike.

tie bar infographic for men

A tie clip provides any outfit with much-needed visual balance and flair.

You can find whole sets for less than $20 on Amazon.

12. Lapel Boutonniere

A boutonniere is a floral decoration placed on the lapel of a sport coat or suit jacket. On more casual attire, a matching boutonniere applies a unique pop to an ensemble, one which is rare these days.

A boutonniere says “old school” without screaming “old.”

You'll be more likely to find stylish men wearing pocket squares, good watches, and tie clips. You're much less likely to find a man wearing a flower on his lapel.

It pays homage to a more classic iteration of style while still being appropriate to the modern age.

13. Carbon Fiber Money Clip

Money clips are a sound and safe way to carry cash and keeping it organized. Carbon fiber is also among the more durable materials you can find this budget men's style essential in.

At just $12, this might be your rebuttal to the bulkiness of a traditional wallet.

carbon fiber money clip men

Money clips – especially carbon fiber ones – are sleek and practical.

14. Cotton Neck Ties

Let's be honest, a cotton necktie won't be likely to make the cut at the office. If you just enjoy ties and love the look, however, this is something you should consider.

men's cotton tie

A cotton tie can easily make any outfit look twice as jaw-dropping for half the price.

Though you should own at least one silk tie, they are considerably pricey. You can enhance your style considerably by being creative with various cotton ties available on the internet.

Amazon has a great selection of gorgeous ties that will run you no more than $15 – if that.

15. Cedar Shoe Trees

These useful tools can vary in price, but you can easily find one to fit your needs at a price range below $20.

Why own a shoe tree?

cedar shoe trees

Do you care about your finest shoes? A shoe tree is a must.

These wonderful devices keep your shoes at the right size and shape, keeping their structural integrity intact. They also make polishing easier for the same reason.

If you have the leather up against a hard surface, then you also don't need to worry about applying too much pressure while cleaning.
