It’s the same way you would shop for a button-down shirt, It’s all about what you gravitate towards and connect with. Don’t overthink it. Go for versatile pieces that adds an attractive touch to your everyday look. In terms of cost-per-wear, a bracelet, ring, or necklace that won’t overpower your 9-to-5 look and adds a stylish accent to your weekend garb is worth the splurge and will become a signature accessory that enhances your personal style.
I think that’s the special thing about jewelry, You can have it for years and have a lot of different experiences and memories while wearing it. It’s been through a lot with you and essentially becomes part of you.
To help guide you with your next jewelry purchase, we try to break down how men can wear jewelry and what pieces to look for.
The trend use to be a thicker kind of leather or metal, but now, we’ve moved towards minimal, refined bracelets that a guy can easily layer or wear on it’s own, I like to combine a simple cuff with another bracelet that has a different texture, be it rope or leather. Nothing that’s too overwhelming or looks like an ‘arm party’.
When it comes to wearing multiple bracelets, it’s best to look at it as a balancing equation. A stylish bracelet shines on it’s own, but if you want to go a little more bold with your look, just make sure the combination isn’t too distracting or heavy. If you’re already wearing a watch and a wedding band on one hand, add the touch of metal or cord to your other wrist.
If you’re wearing a signet ring, I would recommend wearing it without another ring on that hand, like the trendy ring style for men. It looks dope on its own and there’s no need to add to it. But if your style vibe is a bit more bold, you can possibly add one more to that hand, but definitely not more than two rings. ‘Less is more’ should always be the rule.
A super thick or heavy band will look outdated and feel uncomfortable to wear throughout your active day. Chunky over-the-top rings become distracting to any guy while he’s typing at the office or doing physical work. The best rings are the lightweight, minimal stunners that you might even forget you’re wearing, except for when the compliments roll in from onlookers. we recommend sticking to sleek rings that are no wider than 4-millimeters.
Go for something minimal that feels personal and can be worn both on top of your shirt or tucked in with just a sliver of chain peaking out around your neck. A modern chain necklace with a length that hits mid-chest adds character to a basic T-shirt and jeans for killer style. we suggest avoiding big, thick, diamond-cut chains. The high-polished look can be tricky for guys to pull off, so go for something a bit more unique and ruggedly stylish.
A great way to layer is to start with a 24-inch simple chain (with or without a pendant), and then layer a 22-inch smaller chain with a pendant to add interest to your everyday T-shirt or sweatshirt. You can mix and match complimentary metals for next-level style.
Whatever jewelry you choose, and no matter how you decide to wear it, it’s important to go for something that you truly love and will wear daily with ease. A piece of jewelry encapsulates the journeys, adventures, and big moments of your life, taking on sentimental value that’s priceless.
