In the past few years, bracelets and wrist fashion have become more popular among men. It’s a subtle way for men to show off their personalities without going over the top, which can be difficult in the corporate world of business suits and clean, white shirts. Bracelets may not be for everyone, but if done right they can add a subtle fashion touch to your wardrobe.
Many designers and jewelry experts stress that you have to feel confident about wearing any type of jewelry in order to look good in it. If you feel uneasy about adding accessories, chances are people will be able to tell. An article in Vogue suggests: “As it turns out, a strong accessories game may actually be an indicator of character and defined sense of self.”
So, if you’ve got the confidence, here are some tips for embracing the trend.
- Think about your personality. What message are you trying to convey about your style? What fits your personality? For example, if you enjoy golfing, consider finding a bracelet with a subtle golf theme.
- Remember that less is more. You don’t want to overdue it. Wearing one or two bracelets at a time is fine, but it becomes unprofessional and tacky when they are halfway up your arm.
- Don’t be “matchy-matchy.” Coordinate your bracelet and your outfit, but don’t be afraid to throw in a new color. That extra pop of color can add some personality to your look.
- Pair bracelets and watches together. Don’t be afraid to wear both! Again, they don’t have to match perfectly.
