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. Whereas leather, wooden, and other more decorative pieces are great for personal expression. Kohl's features a huge selection of business and casual appropriate bracelets, so you should have no problem finding the perfect accessory for you.
If you're a man, you may not even have much jewelry. It's long been more acceptable for teens to sport necklaces and earrings, but if you didn't indulge back then it's likely that you were never introduced to men's jewelry. The overall aesthetic is much different than you would expect. Designs are more refined and you don't have to worry about dampening your masculinity. Many think that being in touch with fashion and jewelry makes you less masculine, but this is simply not true. Leaning into the creative expression that comes with fashion, and even simply feeling good about yourself should be enough of a reason to really dig in. Starting with men's jewelry is a great way to break the ice.
Bracelets for the men
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. Jewelry was, and still is, a key way to express personality in modern times. In an age where adhering strictly to fashion trends can make you look copy and paste, jewelry can break the template and let your individuality be communicated. 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 men are certainly allowed, and should, consider bracelets made just for them. These pieces lack the decorative femininity, but retain the class and the inherent gravitas. Men's bracelets are designed to catch attention without being distracting. They can still be statement pieces, but they're often designed to complement your fashion choices. Dark colors, simplified designs, or even heavy metals are used to create the perfect wristwear for you.
Styling your bracelets
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 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 finer wristwear.
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 pristine design. 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 leather bracelet set? Whatever the outfit, there's an accent bracelet for it.
