When it comes to being a man, it’s no secret that your dressing options are composed of the standard players: shirts, shoes, pants. Perhaps with a pair of trusted aviator shades or black leather jacket thrown in for good measure. The fact of the matter is that wardrobe choices for men aren’t nearly as dizzying as they are for women. Less complicated is a positive thing, but it can also lead to inevitably finding yourself in a style rut. So how do you keep the contents of your closet fresh? The secret is simple: accessories. A well-crafted piece can take a look from so-so to sharp in 10 seconds flat. The right rugged necklace or finely-crafted bracelet can amp up your look with minimal effort and expand your styling options tenfold. Learning to accessorize isn’t complicated. It’s not an overhaul of your persona, just an enhancement.
Whatever mode you’re in—weekend warrior—or boardroom VIP, the benefits of accessorizing know no boundaries. Versatility is boss in the game of subtly adding the finishing touch to your aesthetic. You’ll be surprised at the boost of confidence that hits when you grab a braided cord leather band or slip on a handsome stainless steel bracelet. Here’s five hand-picked pieces that will get the job done—and then some.
Accentuate your accessories. Bracelets and your watch should complement each other, so casually coordinate them accordingly.
If you plan to wear several bracelets for a fashion-forward approach, a leather bracelet is a smart choice to “anchor” the look.
Size matters! When dressing your wrist, balance your beads and bands smartly with your timepiece. If your watch is on the chunky side, you have the option of rocking a thicker bracelet paired with smaller beaded bracelets. Conversely, if your watch is thin, stick to similar structured bracelets to complement it. You don’t want to overpower your watch with huge beads.
Metal or steel pieces makes a big statement and should be worn with a more toned down outfit choice. These masculine materials can stand on their own as a focal point.
Solid metal bracelets wear best as a solo piece and you don’t want the metal scuffing your watch, so wear the bracelet on your free hand (non-watch hand). Think: railroad spike cuff
