When it comes to men’s fashion, jewelry is probably one of the most underrated elements. But that is now starting to change. Gone are the days when, for men, accessorizing meant putting on a watch or just your wedding band. Donning other pieces, like necklaces and bracelets, is now en vogue.

The right piece of jewelry can make a world of difference in not just your outfit but also your confidence level. If you have a daily uniform, whether it is a suit or a t-shirt and jeans outfit, adding jewelry is a quick and easy way to add your own touch to an otherwise boring look.

Over the years, we have seen men’s jewelry take on many intriguing forms. But, from the puka shell bracelets 70s to the neon bracelets of the early 2000s, one thing that has remained constant is the popularity of bracelets. And for good reason. Bracelets are easy to wear and relatively simple to style. With just a simple men’s beaded stone bracelet, you can lend any outfit that extra bit of pizzazz.

If you are only starting to dip your toes in the men’s jewelry waters and are unsure how to style your bracelets, we have got your back. Read on for a few tips to wear and style men’s bracelets.

  • Pick the right fit and size

  • When it comes to choosing your bracelet, or any piece of jewelry for that matter, size and fit are key. Your bracelet must be proportional to the size of your wrist and not be too loose or too tight. It should sit comfortably on your wrist. If you are unable to determine the right size, beaded bracelets are a safe choice because they are usually one-size-fits-all.

  • Keep it minimal

  • Unless you know your way around stacking bracelets, it is best to stick to just one or two bracelets on your wrist. Also, try to keep one wrist bare. If you want to wear your watch on one wrist and bracelets on the other, go for simple designs that do not take the attention away from the other accessories.

  • Consider the occasion

  • Although bracelets are one of the most versatile accessories, it doesn’t mean that they are appropriate for all occasions. Attending a black-tie event? A bracelet that sticks out from under your cuffs might not be the best choice. While you should wear bracelets that complement your personal style, it is also crucial that you consider the occasion while doing so.

  • Pair your bracelet with your watch

  • Stack one or two bracelets with your watch on the same wrist for that effortlessly casual look. For this, go for thin bracelets. Beaded bracelets are a great choice as they can be paired with all kinds of watches, regardless of the style. Make sure, however, that the bracelets sit closer to your wrist, below your watch.

For the sartorially inclined man, bracelets are a great way to take your look up a notch while flaunting your unique personal style.
