But like any fashion statement, bracelets can definitely be a part of a stylish man's wardrobe. So read through an article that not only teaches you how to pick up the proper bracelet, but how to maximise that party spice with luxury beaded bracelets.

GETTING IT RIGHT

The role of a well-chosen bracelet isn't at all that different from the traditional role of any jewellery. It is there to draw attention. It exists to be noticed. Not the centrepiece of your outfit, but definitely a distinct part of the entire look, and what forms the bracelet complements depends on the temperament, style, environment and the selected outfit of choice. If you're the classic man in the suits, a more metallic or leather tan tends to even out the look for that touch of class. Like a lot of good statements, the bracelet here functions as a social mark that you are rocking the looks the way you do. You're not the guy who puts on the suits because he had to. You're the guy who's taken the time needed to make a suit look good, and the bracelet makes that clear. As with shiny accessories like necklaces, too much bright, shiny metal looks too gaudy. Unless you're getting those sleeves tailored with bracelets in mind, suit, shirt and cuffs are definitely going to compete on the same space as wristwatches assuming you wear watches on the same hands. And that makes bracelets relatively a summer phenomenon when short sleeves leave plenty of room to show them off.

So, treat those bracelets like wristwatches. One wrist left bare always looks better than both wrists occupied. Unless you're into gothic rock, matching bracelets on each wrist is a bit of a stretch. Of course, there are fashion exceptions here and there are definitely guys who make the exception look freaking great. But if you're starting out, then, stick to the guides, please.

THINGS TO LOOK FOR WHEN CHOOSING A BRACELET

STEP 1: CONSIDER YOUR WRIST SIZE

Should you go bold and chunky like stacked bracelets, or sleek and delicate like beautiful string bracelets. Before we get into matters of the taste and style of men's luxury beaded bracelets, think about which type of bracelet will look better against the backdrop of your arm, wrist and hand. When we say the bracelet should match your wrist size, we're not just talking about if it fits around your wrist.

The width of the band, the size of the beads, embellishments and apparent weight of the bracelet all matter too. You want to choose a bracelet that complements your appearance, which is why it's important to consider your bone structure. That way, you'll know whether to look for one that's wide or narrow, simple or extravagant and solid or delicate. Then, you can use your bracelets to accentuate or camouflage your wrist. For example, a man with small wrists might choose a sleek double wrap leather bracelet. This will complement his features, unlike an enormous wide braided hemp bracelet, which would only overwhelm his frame. Meanwhile, a woman with small wrists might want a bold byzantine or chunky link chain bracelet instead of a narrow single strand leather bracelet because the former will make her wrists look even smaller by comparison.

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR WRIST SIZE

Try wrapping your thumb and index finger around the opposite wrist. If you can touch your thumb and forefinger together with extra space, you're small-boned; if they just touch, you're medium-boned; and if they don't quite meet, you're large-boned. Also, look for the bones on the outside of your wrists: are they prominent, or barely noticeable? Are your fingers long and slender, short and sausage-like, or somewhere in between? Use your answers to these questions to guide you in choosing your bracelets.

REMEMBER THESE GUIDING PRINCIPLES:

To make your wrists look proportional to the rest of your frame, choose a bracelet size that matches your wrist size. E.g. Wide, chunky bracelets for large well-padded wrists, or small delicate bracelets for narrow bony wrists.

To make your wrists look even smaller or larger, choose a bracelet size that's the opposite of your wrist size. E.g. Large bracelets for small wrists, or small bracelets for large wrists.

To make your wrists look more balanced or closer to the average size, choose a bracelet that neither emphasises through sameness or highlights through contrast. E.g. Medium-sized bracelets for all wrist sizes.

No matter how you want to see it, mens luxury beaded bracelets add class to your dressing as a man. They will be dependent on taste and individuality.
