Trends spring/summer 2016 – men are wearing more and more jewelry
The conventional trinity of a man’s jewelry arsenal – wedding ring, watches and cufflinks – has lost the spotlight in favor of a different category of accessories – the sparkly ones. Yes, this season men a wearing bling.
But of course, we’re not talking about jewelry pieces that might affect their masculinity. Contrary to popular belief, men can look fierce even when they’re wearing bracelets and rings. Believe it or not, layered bracelets and thick black metal rings can actually add a note of freshness and innovation to a conventional or even corporate outfit. It’s all about mixing and matching the right accessories with the right type of clothes. It’s equally important for the stylish modern man to know that there’s a huge difference between high-fashion and kitsch.
Bracelets for men don’t have to be made of gold or platinum. In fact, the most common type is the layered leather bracelet. Other recommended materials are neoprene and even elastic. Men wearing bracelets look chic, different, and stylish. There are numerous styles and models one can choose from; embossed bracelets with fancy stitching, colorful textile-inspired variants with beads, or punk-inspired bracelets are all in trend for the spring/summer of 2016.
Let’s not forget that today’s stereotype in terms of style is the modern hipster guy with a long, rugged beard, messy hair, retro glasses and sporty clothes. This influences the choice of a man when it comes to buying accessories. In this case we’re talking about someone who doesn’t need a golden tie clip, but a colorful bow tie and a layered leather bracelet to make a positive impression.
Rough, asymmetrical diamonds and different types of raw gems are the newest trends in man’s fashion. The modern man with fashion taste and a flair for quality clothes wants jewelry items that are equally enticing. Rings for example, are the hottest trend of the season. Men want their bands to look bulky, feature manly engravings or models, but not look too ‘gangsta’. The signet is making an important comeback. Men want their bling to have that rough allure, although they don’t want to wear accessories that are sloppy and unfitted for their sense of style.
Today’s modern signet band features the most interesting crest. In some cases, the buyers can choose to have his personalized, engraved or etched with a message, a set of numbers, letters, or even an image. The embossing of a lion on a signet ring is a sign of power and wealth; however you shouldn’t choose the brightest, biggest signet you can find just to impress someone. Keep in simple – in man’s fashion, that old fashion rule “less is more” still applies.
All eyes on black accessories
Men are wearing more and more jewelry, and this shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. It’s rather cool to see masculine accessories on tattooed men; they send a hipster/punk-like vibe that modern women enjoy very much. Black jewelry pieces are highly preferred by men because they have a more masculine appeal. Apparently, black diamonds are a man’s new best friend. They can be incorporated in all kinds of jewelry items, including rings, necklaces, or bracelets. Black diamonds in men’s accessories have become so popular because they feature a classic cut, and they have a color that is characteristic to men in general.
Tie clips, watches & cufflinks
Just because today’s coolest man’s fashion style is the modern hipster, it doesn’t mean that the classic, elegant style is dead. Of course not; however, men who like to wear suits need different kind of jewelry pieces – cufflinks, tie clips and watches. These are essential if you want to look dashing and make an impression. When it comes to making a choice, in this case it is important to choose top-quality materials. Don’t be cheap, be rational! If you can’t afford gold, choose silver and stay away from fake accessories that chance colors after the first wear.
To look good on the outside, you have to feel confident on the inside first. Trends are changing, and men have started to take care more about themselves and their image. Pick a style that you feel comfortable with and customize it according to your own preferences. Give it an air of originality with the coolest accessories and most interesting men’s jewelry.
