Jewelry is often considered a purely female affair, but men worldwide often look amazing wearing male jewelry. These tips will help you get started in jewelry and help women with a traditionally masculine style.
When in doubt, keep it simple. Start with a classic silver leather wristwatch. If you wear a watch regularly and can afford it, consider a more sporty diver’s watch with a stainless steel strap. Then tune in to tie accessories and cufflinks.
Once you are comfortable with these generally accepted pieces, you can introduce other jewelry such as necklaces at will.
As with any significant life change, small steps are often better than giant leaps when it comes to adding jewelry to your wardrobe. If you’re the type of guy who’s never worn jewelry before (aside from the puka shell necklace you thought was so cool in high school), you don’t need to target Puff Daddy right away. Being too noticeable too quickly can make some men uncomfortable. So it is best to start with something simple and elegant to get a feel for the jewelry and see how you want to add something from there.
If you don’t have a good watch yet, this is an excellent place to start. A good watch from a reliable luxury brand can be an accessory for a lifetime. This purchase creates an obsession for some men who switch from inexpensive calculator watches to avid watch collectors after trying their first watch. When you find a watch that you like and satisfy you, you can try going from there to a simple metal link bracelet for the other wrist or contrasting a leather and metal bracelet for the non-watch.
You can’t escape it. Although it only takes up a small percentage of its visual presentation, people focus on jewelry thanks to its sparkle and unusual use by men.
To further complicate matters, people may interpret the meaning of the same piece of jewelry very differently. For some, decorative rings symbolize success and wealth; for others, they indicate that they belong to organized crime.
This means that a man should be careful when wearing jewelry that is not up to standard. It’s easy to look flashy when he adds nondescript jewelry to his everyday outfit. However, jewelry can add a useful piece of color and uniqueness to an outfit. How does a well-dressed man compensate for this?
Of course, if you want to try on a daring jewelry style, don’t stop. While large earrings and a chunky chain are not suitable for all men, if you have the style and panache to rock them, you should give them a try. Of course, you don’t have to follow the example of others when choosing your jewelry. If earrings and necklaces aren’t your styles, consider chunky bracelets or even a spectacular little ring. When worn correctly, a pinky ring can evoke the old days when they first became popular with men and add edgy vintage charm to a suit or even a casual leather denim jacket look.
You may not feel ready for this kind of bold move right away but take some time. Once you have become familiar with how to wear and style the jewelry and have gained confidence in your tastes, you may be surprised at how bold it is.
