Keen to tap into a new look this summer? Jewellery can be a great way to switch up your outfit with minimal effort. Whether you prefer rings, necklaces, bracelets, watches or earrings, there are endless trends out there for you to try out. Both statement and basic pieces have the power to transform your vibe in a matter of seconds. Here are some key items of jewellery that you might want to consider to help to revamp your wardrobe.
Watches are a great gateway into the world of male accessories, especially if you’re a little hesitant about more experimental jewellery. A statement wrist piece is a timeless, classic accessory that will never go out of fashion, so you can’t go too far wrong.
The word ‘statement’ doesn’t have to restrict you to bold choices, either, as there are lots of minimal styles on the market in line with 2023 trends. Think elegant features such as a classic leather strap and a plain face in a variety of colourways, or perhaps you’d prefer an all-metal style with a mesh, stainless-steel strap. Depending on how much you spend, you may want to consider suitable jewellery insurance policies that might be able to help to protect your investment.
Cuban link chain
The likes of Harry Styles and Timothée Chalamet have been key to the revival of chains for men but the truth is that they’ve been a staple in the hip-hop community for decades. This retro accessory was all the rage in the late seventies to mid-eighties.
Classified by their durable, often chunky appearance, chains are bold statement pieces but can also be stripped back with a more understated outfit. Alternatively, opt for a thinner style with smaller links in line with their more recent resurgence. Many men wear them beneath their tops but with the necklace partially revealed for a more subtle look.
If you’d rather switch out chunky neckwear for something more delicate, a pendant necklace could be the perfect choice. Small but impactful, a pendant adds a stamp of character to your look.
Choose from metal or jewel pendants in whatever shape you prefer. Zodiac symbols, graphic lines, motifs – the possibilities are endless. You could even get a personalised pendant if you want to go for a more upmarket option.
Prefer to accessorise your hands? Rings are strong statement pieces favoured by many. Go for chunky or slimmer styles in whatever metal you prefer. Some will gravitate towards cool-toned silver while others prefer warmer gold tones. It’s completely up to you and how you want to accessorise your look.
Don’t be afraid to stack your rings, either. Many choose to load up their jewellery in this way to bring a new element to monochrome outfits. Rings offer a great opportunity to inject a spot of colour, too, with unique gemstones.
