How much jewellery is too much for men? Can you wear one and still feel masculine? Beyond wedding rings, guys begin to feel iffy when it comes to putting on accessories like bracelets and bangles. While it is easy to get into the mindset that bracelets are pretty much just a feminine thing, the fashion world is telling you otherwise — wearing jewellery is genderless.
Bracelets can be a part of a stylish man’s wardrobe without looking disruptive or feminine. In fact, these accessories help to accent your look and elevate your sense of style – making it classier, more elegant and luxurious.
Just like shoes and suits, you need to find a piece that looks best on you. If you’re new to the idea of wearing jewellery, it is important to keep it minimum and subtle. Each piece should serve a purpose and not looking too flashy – so you may want to keep your options to just one bracelet or three at maximum. All you want to achieve is a nice sense of class without looking over the top. A statement yet simple piece include Cartier’s Juste Un Clou and the Tiffany T Square bracelet.
Look for metals that are suitable for your skin colour – whether it is silver, gold or pink gold. If you have a warm undertone to your skin, gold shades would complement you best. However, it is recommended to always try everything on you, make comparisons and then choose what you like based on what you see and how you feel.
Whether it is a minimalistic white gold piece or an elaborate chain, jewellery should be intentional – it is to enhance your daily looks. A casual outfit can look extremely suave with just a stack of thin bracelets while a formal look can look expensive with just a metal bangle under the watch.
Now that you have an idea on how to choose a bracelet that works for you, here are some of the latest men’s bracelets you should have in your arsenal.
