So I was just pondering about this earlier the week: how the hell did bracelets so stealthily creep into the fashion stable of today’s men. There used to be a time along history when men just stuck to wearing a statement watch on their wrist and nothing else, but that has certainly changed. Take a look around these days, and you can see almost 80% of guys around town are spotting bracelets of some sort.
I think the trend of men wearing bracelets really crashed in only in recent years when actors like Johnny Depp started stacking bracelets of different textures on his wrist, which somehow made wearing bracelets seem like a man’s thing to do. Well I personally always felt my wrists to be empty if I had nothing on them; be it a watch or a bracelet and so I always make it a point to wear something on both wrist to ‘dress’ them up.
So if you may ask, how do you wear the bracelets on different outfits? Here’s some ways that we usually wear them by:
Wear it casual
If your outfit for the day don’t require you to put on something formal looking, you are at the absolute liberty to wear bracelets of any sorts and you can even mix things up a little. Go ahead and be bold if you want to, but of course always bear in mind the balance of things and not ‘overbold’ it…
A one piece wrap bracelet with colors matching your main outfit. It doesn’t come off as too striking to the eye yet it does something to complete the entire look.
If you’re up for it, stack them up. Use bracelets of different textures such as fabric, stones, wood, and metals to complement each other. This creates the fuller and more adventurous look on your wrist.
There are times in a man’s life when we are called to put on a suit and man up (unless you have to wear a suit every day to work), and that doesn't mean that bracelets cannot be integrated into your formal look.
If you're looking at just adding a slight tint of bright color tones into your outfit whilst not going over the top, simply add a bright colored bracelet underneath your cuff. This way, it would not stand out too obvious but enough to show your colorful side when it pops out once in a while.
Nobody enjoys having our favorite watches scratched up in any way. So if you want to leave your watch alone, simply put on a clean metal cuff bracelet on the other arm. It not only protects your favorite watch, but also complements the watch with the similar metal element on both arms.
Well that’s it folks. If you’re inspired to have your bracelets on, hop over to our shop to check out the variety of bracelets we have in stock.
