As the majority of guys slowly become more fashion conscious, men’s Jewellery has become more in demand.
With this being said, not everyone has jumped onto the male jewellery bandwagon. It must be that fear of not being able to pull of those studded earrings or that leather bracelet correctly.
After all, jewellery is primarily considered to be a woman’s forte – leaving the ties and cufflinks to the chaps.
There are various types of jewellery available in the market tailored for men, some featuring detailed pendants/symbols and others keeping it simple and minimalistic like this £95 Tateossian x MenswearStyle bracelet.
It’s important you know your taste when it comes to choosing jewellery. Do you prefer silver, gold, metal, wood or steel? Is leather an issue for you? Do you prefer rings, bracelets, earrings or necklaces, and most importantly what do you want your jewellery to say about you?
When you first dive into the wonderful world of men’s jewellery it’s important that you begin slowly and small. Let’s face it, looking like Mr. T is the last thing you want in 2014 right?
Watches from My Bag, rings from Thomas Sabo, cufflinks from Duchamp or bracelets from Tateossian are often good classic starting points. As you begin to progress, you’ll soon find necklaces and maybe rings more appealing to compliment with your bolder statement outfits.
Most gents are under the impression that wearing various pieces of jewellery will lead to their outfit looking less sophisticated and over-complicated. The key to avoiding this is to pick pieces that compliment each other without overpowering the rest of your look.
This watch by Triwa for example would add sophistication to both a casual and tailored outfit since the timepiece carries a level of classic elegance yet modern tones at the same time.
If your aim is to sport jewellery everyday it’s important that you opt for masculine options. Avoid bright, flashy types – keep those for the ladies.
Stick to your personal sense of style, items which you’re comfortable in. Then brush up on your attitude, it’s all about how you wear it and how your confidence prevails in doing so.
However, it’s important to remember that if you’d like to wear jewellery for a more formal workwear look you’ll most likely find yourself restricted.
Your choices should be kept down to the very basic types of jewellery; these can be tie accents, cufflinks, wedding rings and watches.
There you have it, a quick and easy to follow guide on how to slowly accept the wonderful world of men’s jewellery.
Start simple and small, and within time you’ll grow comfortable with sporting bolder accessory statements. Have fun with it and remember, by making mistakes, it’s the only way we’ll learn.
