Men’s Jewelry: Using Accessories to Express Your Style
Men can create a look of sophistication by adding a simple chain of real metal. Current men's fashion finds silver and gold chains popular choices. Colored necklaces or those finished in black, brass or copper are equally preferred by men. For those who prefer beaded jewelry, neutral colors are best. A necklace in earth tone colors adds character and works well with casual style clothing. Men of all ages should avoid fake jewelry whenever possible.
Chain length is important in creating certain fashion styles. Choker necklaces and chains are easily found in lengths ranging from 16"-24". Fashion etiquette dictates that chains should rest below the collar bone and always be worn inside the shirt. Necklaces, often sexually appealing to others, look best when worn with a t-shirt or long sleeved shirt. Adding a simple necklace and pendant to a classic white or colored t-shirt is the perfect combination to a man seeking a casual, yet sophisticated look.
Statement pendants, such as the popular inspirational cross pendant and the Ai Qing pendant have became increasingly popular in men's fashion. Pendants come in many styles with each one representing a different attribute. While the cross pendant symbolizes faith, other men's pendants represent qualities such as courage, passion, excitement and comradeship. Celebrities such as Maksim Chmerkovsky of Dancing with the Stars and Iron Chef America's star, Marc Dacascos wear pendants sold at MenAndBeyond.com. Popular with many other music talents and celebrities, pendants look stylish when added to a simple chain.
Men's bracelets can work magic when added to any attire. By adding a one-toned bracelet, a man can go from looking drab to classy with the close of a clasp. Metal bracelets are the perfect addition to any causal or formal clothing. Woven rope/leather styled bracelets are popular favorites among both nature enthusiasts and teen-aged boys. When adding a bracelet to your wardrobe, it should fit firmly around the wrist and be thick enough to prevent it from breaking easily.
In the men's jewelry fashion, less is more. When wearing jewelry, its best to wear jewelry within the same family of metals and colors. In doing so, you'll look great! Sporting a flashy yellow-gold ring, a platinum bracelet and a colored beaded necklace will definitely cause heads to turn, but it won't necessarily be the attention you were hoping for.
