“To wear jewellery or not to wear jewellery?” – it’s a question that has been plaguing fashionable men for what seems like aeons. The answer is, of course, to carefullychoose accessories that enhance your natural style and look.
Men’s bracelets appear to be a trend that is set to stay, and we want to single out leather bracelets as a trend to watch – and of course, to wear.
Leather bracelets are a perfect dalliance into the world of men’s jewellery, especially for someone a bit hesitant to wear jewellery in the first place. Leather is a great material for bracelets as it has an undeniable masculinity and the ruggedness can really set off a look.
Bracelets with a formal look
A leather bracelet can actually be very versatile. You can incorporate a leather wrap bracelet into a smart look to retain that feel of formality, while at the same time appearing roguish and unique.
Leather bracelets can really make a watch pop or can be used as a contrast point. This means you have the option to choose which wrist you wear them on.
Wearing bracelets with other jewellery
When pairing a bracelet with a watch, it’s important to keep in mind that it should complement the colour and design. It doesn’t need to be a matching colour, but it should draw attention to your watch if you want it to be the main attraction.
If your watch has a more refined classic look, then it’s best to stick with a smaller bracelet. On the other hand, a bigger watch would more easily stand up to a heftier leather bracelet.
Try mixing and matching your leather bracelet with different watches and even wear more than one bracelet at a time. Pairing a kitschy, low-end watch with a luxurious looking leather bracelet is a fresh new style that will accentuate your dapper jewellery.
Bracelets with a casual look
Leather bracelets work just as well with a more casual look. It’s a snap to integrate them into an outfit with a T-shirt and slim-fit jeans, or chinos, to get a more edgy and effortless-cool aesthetic.
The nautical aesthetic is as strong as ever in menswear. Investing in a nautical-themed leather bracelet would be a wise move, as it will most likely stand the test of time.
Some of the nautical leather bracelets for men will use an anchor, or hook – such as this example from Dapper Vigilante, as the fastening mechanism or they might use rope and cabling and different nautical emblems. These types of touches really add a sense of individuality and flair to your look. They’ll make your outfit a little more stylish and a definitely more fun.
Leather bracelets come in an array of different colours and closures, so there’s bound to be one to express your unique style and personality. It’s a trend that will really show off your sophistication and suaveness.
