When it comes to accessories for men it seems that a lot of guys are split right down the middle. Some of us are already embracing men’s silver rings, earrings (and other piercings), necklaces and the likes while the rest of us prefer a slightly more minimal look. In the end a lot of it comes down to what you think best suits you, some like to go for a simple chained pendant, others for multiple rings, and an earring – there is no right or wrong answer to this question. One thing that most of us agree on though is that a strong watch is an essential item to finish off the look.
A Watch is Key
Watches have long been a man’s best friend, harking right back to the Victorian era and the pocket watch and now the wrist watch we love so dearly today. Watches are the accessory that is most likely to catch someone’s eye Watches tend to be larger than other accessories and are also worn on your wrist which is a area that catches peoples eye as you go about your day to day business.
It’s essential that you find a style that not only suits your look but also a style that fits you wrist. It may go without saying but if you have small wrists avoid large faced watches and likewise if you have larger wrists avoid anything too small. If your arms are particularly hairy you might prefer a leather strap, as these are less likely to catch and pull the hairs as you move – this can be particularly painful but then you could always just adopt the ‘man up’ philosophy!
Add a Bracelet, or 2
After watches, I think bracelets are pretty easy to wear. You can pick up a few beaded or silver men’s bracelets and interchange these depending on the occasion or your own personal style. There are no specific rules when it comes to wearing bracelets; it’s more about what you feel comfortable with so you do have some scope here to experiment. Teaming a beaded bracelet with a watch can looks great or simply wearing a few different ones together on your opposite wrist works well too.
Of course, it’s more a case of what suits you; there are not really any right or wrong answers when it comes to accessories for men. Rings, necklaces and earrings can look great on the right person or with the right outfit. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try different styles on, own it and you will work it. We think of accessories in the same way we think of sunglasses, sometimes the styles that look great on the shelf don’t suit you and sometimes those that you don’t expect to suit you actually look great.
One thing is for certain, accessories for men accentuate and draws attention to you and certain areas of your body. Making sure the rest of you is on point is essential. There are many ways to do this, from exercise and nutraceuticals to keeping yourself well groomed and sharply styled. Here at Bear Grooming we know what our style is and we work it, our only advice is that you do the same. Our black pepper and sandalwood scented beard oils and washes are unique and offer one of the best scents you can get hold of (according to our customers!) – we are inclined to agree…
