One fashion trend you gentlemen readers might have noticed: more and more men seem to be wearing bracelets.
For a good reason, too: the right bracelet can really make your look pop – adding a dash of the dapper to practically any outfit. And that dash-of-the-dapper becomes more than just a dash when a suave-looking bracelet is paired alongside a stylish watch. Celebrities like Jay-Z and jewellery-flaunting Johnny Depp do it well – and so can you. This quick guide walks you through the different options you have when you decide it’s time (yes, pun intended) to wear both a watch and a bracelet.
A Fashion Question to Ask Yourself
Your sense of fashion and style – it always makes a statement, one way or another. The question you’ve got to ask yourself – before choosing what bracelet to pair with your watch – is what you want your style to say about you. The extraordinary thing about fashion is that there are so many possible things it can say about you. For example, fashion can be used to communicate that you are ambitious; that you are young at heart, wild and free; that you are a meticulous person.
The possibilities are just about endless.
Now, once you’ve answered this question for yourself, you’ll be in a much better position to choose just what kind of bracelet to wear along your timepiece. Making that choice can be influenced by a lot of different factors, but fundamentally you want your bracelet and your watch to complement each other in some way.
