In the cyclic world of fashion, everything is dynamic and nothing is impossible. The current trend in men’s fashion is “jewellery”. The word means, men’s jewellery. Many have a hard time deciding whether it is alright for men to wear jewellery, especially necklaces and bracelets. There are issues revolving around this trend because many of the men still think that jewellery is only for women, saying otherwise could dub you as gay.
As previously stated, anything can happen in terms of fashion. Men are now open to wearing jewellery but not the way women wear it. It is perfectly okay for men to wear any forms of jewellery as long as it is not too much. History tells us that before the advent of the twenty-first century, men’s jewellery were limited to a pair of cuff links, nice ties, and an expensive watch. Other than that, the rest were considered feminine. Early in the 1950’s however, wearing bracelets became famous among men as a form of identification.
Nowadays, because of media and entertainment, wearing bracelets is becoming popular among men little by little. Sportsmen, rock stars, actors, men look up to them for a sense of fashion. If one personality is seen with a bracelet, men observe the over-all effect and consider whether it is masculine enough to pass as specific for men.
Bracelets are no longer for famous personalities only; they are for every man out there. Your fashion sense is a reflection of who you are, your style and your preference. It does not have to tell anything about anyone rather than yourself.
Some men are very comfortable wearing bracelets because they feel like it enhances their personality; others wear it because it complements their whole outfit. All in all, more and more men are accepting bracelets as a part of the male jewellery.
There are those who put on bracelets as a statement. Statement bracelets range from silver, chained or to the recently famous rubber ones. The silver and chained bracelets are ways of how men express themselves and how they want people to perceive them based on the design and style chosen. The rubber ones are for the purpose of encouragement or support. They usually have writings of them to clarify their meaning.
Bracelets are also worn as a symbol of love. Some fathers do not take off the beaded bracelets made by their little girls. Others have bracelets that come in pairs, one for the woman and one for the man. These bracelets are usually silver and can be customized and have engravings.
Men also wear bracelets for health purposes. There are energy bracelets that are said to maximize ones strength and sense of balance. Medical ID bracelets are also used by men. These bracelets have ones medical history and information in times of sudden attacks.
Whatever the reasons are, it is important for men to know that when it comes to fashion, anything is okay as long as you are comfortable with wearing it.
