Leveling Up Your Bracelet Game
If you look through your jewelry collection you may notice a lack of bracelets. Whether you don't prefer them, or if you just never thought to accessorize with them, it's time to consider them once more. Bracelets offer a special aesthetic you can't get with earrings and necklaces. They also have a special relationship with rings that you can take advantage of if you're willing to give them another shot.
The thing about bracelets is that they can add a flourish to your wrist that can complete your outfits in unexpected ways. They feature different shapes, materials, and colors which make them fit for many different occasions and styles. Metal bracelets are a great fit for dress and black tie occasions. Kohl's features a huge selection of business and casual appropriate bracelets as well.
Bracelets are for everyone
When it comes to talking about jewelry, men squirm a little. Men tend to feel that jewelry is not something they should really indulge in. Thankfully, you can find a whole selection of bracelets styled specifically for men.
Looking at the history of bracelets, it makes sense that they're mostly geared towards women. They're highly decorative in most cultures, but in modern fashion, kids and men are certainly allowed, and should consider bracelets made just for them. For men, femininity is toned down. You get dark colors and simpler designs to draw less attention to the fact that you're sporting some jewelry.
For kids, bracelets are designed to be playful and don't feature as many easily destroyed materials. Often, they will be themed after your child's favorite entertainment brands. If they're too young to appreciate the thematic reference to their favorite show, consider a package of soft plastic bracelets to train them to enjoy wearing them.
There's a fascinating relationship that develops between bracelets and rings. Like earrings and necklaces, one needs to be the statement piece and the other needs to be the complement. When you're choosing your bracelet, consider what texture, color, and material you want it to have.
In a professional setting, consider a subtle metal bracelet that won't be distracting to yourself, and others. Choosing a metal bracelet also complements the business aesthetic nicely because your bracelet isn't giving off a casual vibe. From gold chains or leather to statement bracelets, you too can wear something stylish.
When you're outside of the office and going to cocktail parties, or black tie events, remember to accessorize with fine jewelry. A high quality diamond bracelet should help make you sparkle and stand out.
Casual affairs require something more personable. Kohl's assortment of fashion bracelets has you set. Fine jewelry tends to lack texture and personality, but makes up for it with sheer beauty. With fashion jewelry you can find something with just the right pop factor. Will your bohemian look benefit from a wood beaded bracelet? How about a two tone, or a feather bracelet set? Whatever the outfit, there's an accent bracelet for it.
Other accessories to pair with your bracelets
Necklaces are the best way to accentuate your neck, especially when your top can only do so much. As with other forms of jewelry be sure that your necklace does not clash with your earrings, nor your outfit. When wearing statement earrings, consider something subdued like a silver or gold chain. Naturally, the same is true when you're wearing a statement necklace.
In settings where statement necklaces aren't appropriate, but chain necklaces aren't enough, consider a pendant. They often toe the line of both styles very well, and can be easily matched with earrings, rings, and your other accessories.
Rings are great because they give our hands some love. Whether it's fine jewelry for high class events, engagements and marriages, or to make a statement, you've got choices.
If you're heart set on popping the question, you don't have to settle for the usual diamonds and standard cuts. Between solitaires, round or princess cuts, and halo rings, you'll be able to find the right ring to proclaim your commitment. When you've found the perfect engagement ring, don't forget to come back for your wedding bands. With beautifully crafted rings for her, and subtly stylish bands for him, you can't go wrong.
