Blog » men’s necklaces
Necklaces are one thing every man can pull off. They’re simply, don’t require any extra effort and it’s quite impossible to make them look bad. Well, that is, unless you’re wearing a bunch of different necklaces, all at the same length and with no collaboration in style. Otherwise, necklaces are a pretty safe bet when it comes to adding some dapper elements into your wardrobe.
Not convinced? Check out these five necklaces for men and you’ll quickly see that they can be added into all kinds of men’s style – from monkey suits to track suits and beyond.
The Washington Black Beaded Necklace for Men
The Washington necklace for men is definitely the easiest accessory to add into your dapper wardrobe. We mentioned the black agate matte style specifically because it’s timeless and versatile – you can wear anything with it.
However, the red tiger’s eye, yellow tiger’s eye and white howlite are definitely worth adding into your style as well because they take your dapper A-game to the next level. Black is effortless – everyone can pull it off; the other colors are also effortless but wearing them shows that you’ve put some thought into your outfit – even if you didn’t.
The Dai Necklaces for Men
Speaking of beaded necklaces for men, the Dai collection of dapper accessories is just as easy to add into your wardrobe. These necklaces are very similar to the Washington necklaces, only they incorporate lapis lazuli beads to add a bit more individuality. So, similar to the other colors offered in the Washington, the Dai is a great way to look like you put a lot of time and effort into your outfit, without doing anything extra at all.
The Dae is like the Dai, Only Upgraded
Alright, we couldn’t mention those two dapper necklaces for men and then leave out the Dae. As you can see, it adds a bit more style into the classic beaded necklace. It’s similar to the Dai but instead of just having a couple lapis lazuli beads, these necklaces change up the tones as well. This is actually a huge benefit, as it allows the necklace to match with even more colors. So, it’s timeless and limitless, and anyone can pull it off.
The Ren is Ideal for V-Neck Tees
Let’s move on from the beaded necklaces for men because you get it – the timeless style makes it easy for any man to pull off the look. The Ren is a unique necklace for men that combines the elements you like from the previous necklaces and adds a hefty dose of dapper and edge. The matte onyx beads are paired with stainless steel which then drops down into a line where you’ll find a simple pendant. Due to the unique design of this dapper necklace, the Ren is perfect for V-neck tees and can take a casual look to the next level. However, it can also be just as easily paired with a dress shirt.
The Phurba is Timeless with a Twist
If you liked the previous necklaces for men, you’ll definitely like the Phurba as well – and it’s just as easy to add into your wardrobe as all the rest. Instead of drooping down like the Ren necklace, this dapper style uses a long stainless steel pendant to give a similar effect, sans the extra beads. It’s a very simple style yet exceptionally dapper, making it a must have for any man looking to take his wardrobe from dude to dapper.
Men’s accessories can be intimidated but when you have timeless, dapper necklaces like these, upgrading your A-game can be as simple as tossing on one of these styles. Shop Zenger today for all your dapper accessories for men.
Unlike women, necklaces aren’t something us men naturally know how to wear. We can throw on the new Washington beaded necklace for men but do we really know what we’re doing? For most of us, no. But that’s why you have guys like me. Dapper style is my expertise and today, I’ll be teaching you guys how to layer necklaces like a pro.
Step One: Find Different Lengths
The first step to layering necklaces like a pro for men is to find different lengths. Sure; you never take off your dog tag necklace but if your other necklaces are the same length, you might want to reconsider that. Otherwise, you’ll want to stay away from necklaces for men that are the same length as your dog tag.
It’s insanely important to avoid wearing several men’s necklaces that are the same length. In fact, it’s the key to looking dapper and masculine. Otherwise, your accessories will just look messy and your entire outfit will appear sloppy.
So, step no. 1 – different lengths; always different lengths.
Step Two: Matching
I know, I know, matching is not a man’s forte, especially when it comes to colors. After all, the majority of us are apparently colorblind. However, with that said, all the more reason to actually pay attention to what men’s accessories you wear.
There are a couple of ways you can go about this. You can match the colors blues with blues, blacks with blacks – simple stuff, you can match the overall theme of your necklaces or you can avoid matching altogether. Confusing stuff, right?
Matching The Same Color
Let’s start with the first one, as it’s the easy. If you want to learn how to layer necklaces like a pro, start with the same colors. Pair your silver necklaces with silver pendant necklaces; your black necklaces with a black beaded necklace, and so on and so forth.
Matching the Theme
The second way to layer men’s necklaces like a pro is to match the overall theme. Despite sounding really complicated, this method is actually much easier than you think. Just take a look at the men’s necklace collection on Zenger. Pretty much all of the necklaces can be paired together, assuming they’re different lengths.
However, not all stores are created equally. So, this is a styling tip for men that you want to remember when pairing with other types of necklaces. If you’re wearing the Gavreel religious necklace for men, you probably wouldn’t want to pair it with some satanic style from somewhere else. Common sense, right?
Step Three: Matching the Aesthetics and Quality
This is where layering men’s necklaces gets a little tricky. Matching the style and quality of necklaces takes a little more attention to detail than the other steps. So, if you’re trying to focus on appearing more dapper than dude, this is for you. After all, a cheap chain necklace paired with a dapper Zenger necklace can just destroy your entire look; a beachy shell-necklace isn’t going to match the style of a dapper men’s necklace either. I’m sure you get the point. Stick with dapper necklaces well throughout your look.
Whatever length of necklaces you’re wearing, whatever the style, it’s key to make sure that, when combined, the finish look ties… Without actually tying together. So, stick with different lengths, match the color, theme or not at all, and always match the style and quality of your men’s necklaces.
Either stick with dapper necklaces for men from Zenger or some cheap styles found at some random corner store. When trying to pair necklaces like a pro, the two should never be combined.
As you take a stroll down the city streets, you’ll see one common thing worn by the most dapper, successful men - accessories. From businessmen to famous actors, entrepreneurs, musicians and more, men's accessories are never missing. Beaded necklaces, cross necklaces, dog tags, chains, bracelets, wristwatches – you name it – accessories are always there. You find yourself wondering, ‘What is this men’s style trend you’ve clearly missed the memo on?’
Truthfully, there’s no smoke and magic. What you see is what you get – accessories for men are accessories for men. However, the reason you’re seeing the most stylish and successful men wearing them is what counts.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to tell you that the men’s fashion industry has always fallen short. In fact, men’s fashion can easily be categorized with one hand – you have the jock who wears jeans, tees and ball caps; the businessman who wears dress pants and a dress shirt; the serious businessman who wears a suit; the beach guy who wears shorts and a shirt – and that pretty much sums it up.
Men have the option of wearing jeans, trousers, tees, dress shirts and shorts – all of which have a generic, simple style that looks like everything else within their wardrobe. If you were successful enough, you could showcase your status and separate yourself from the crowd with a wristwatch… But then smartphones came out. So, again, the men’s fashion industry was back to looking like everyone else.
Fortunately, that has all changed. Men’s accessories are no longer restricted to grunge or rocker styles, nor do you have to choose between looking generic or wearing Chad-from-Nickelback-type of men’s jewelry. The industry finally has options, thanks to high quality, dapper accessories.
Now, you may be wondering if you even need to indulge in men’s accessories. After all, you’ve done just fine without. But don’t be mistaken. The power that comes from wearing men’s accessories goes far beyond the aesthetics.
Men’s Accessories Separate You from the Crowd
Since the clothing portion of men’s fashion is still limited, men’s accessories are the one way you can separate yourself from the crowd. Just think – you see two men wearing jeans and a v-neck tee but one of them is wearing a necklace, dapper wristwatch and beaded bracelets. You’re more likely to pay attention to the person who has added some accessories into their look. This can be exceptionally beneficial for landing a job, a date – you name it.
Men’s Accessories Showcase your Individuality
With the prior mentioned, men’s accessories also allow you to put your own personality into your outfits. Necklaces, bracelets, wristwatches and belts let you dress in a way that represents who you are as a man.
Men’s Accessories Create Style That Demands Respect
It’s a no-brainer; men’s accessories give off a look that demands respect. You don’t appear to be just an average Joe, so you aren’t treated as such either. People will take you more seriously when you take yourself (and style) more seriously.
Lastly, men’s accessories are dapper. There’s no other way to say it. You look better, you feel better and the rest of the world follows en suite. So, to you, they may just be accessories as of right now but as soon as you start styling them into your looks, you’ll experience a significant difference.
So, shop Zenger today for all your dapper men’s accessories - from wristwatches to beaded bracelets, necklaces and more.
To the dapper men aspiring to dive into men’s accessories, welcome to the 21st century. It’s about time you arrived and discovered what your accessories can do for your luxury style but there’s one problem. After years of never touching a piece of jewelry, you likely have no idea where to start. Since the only thing worse than not wearing men’s accessories is wearing men’s accessories that send people the wrong message, we’ve created this style guide for you to ensure your dapper style remains luxurious and sophisticated.
Chain necklaces can be gaudy or dapper
There’s a fine line between gaudy chain necklaces and luxurious ones. Typically, the larger the chain the edgier the look. If you’re looking to give off a dapper and rich appeal, look for sleek chain necklaces for men. They’re subtle and sophisticated, giving off the right amount of shine without going into ‘bling’, and because of that, these styles tell the world that you are secure and established, and appreciate the finer things in life.
However, there are also cheap chain necklaces that look like gold or silver. These will tarnish within a couple of wears - and tarnish is never a good look.
Religious necklaces for men shows your integrity
Religious necklaces, such as the Gavreel necklace, will instantly let people see your integrity. Having religious faith likely means you have been raised with strong moral principles - thou shall honor your father and mother, thou shall not steal, thou shall not covet, thou shall not murder, thou shall not use the name of the Lord in vain, and you know the rest. Since you likely strongly believe in these commandments, wearing religious necklaces lets the world see your integrity and your connection with faith. You’ll instantly give off a trustworthy, respectable, honorable appeal.
Dog tags give off a masculine, authoritative appeal
Men’s accessories have taken a blast to the past in terms of necklaces. Dog tags are as popular today as they were in the early 2000’s and they haven’t changed much either. These military-style necklaces for men come in three forms – cheap, luxury and authentic.
Cheap dog tag necklaces are the ones you can pick up for a couple bucks and that are attached to a cheap ball chain. You want to steer clear of these. Authentic dog tags are ones earned while serving the country, and unless you served, you don’t want to wear these either. As for luxury dog tag necklaces for men, they can be worn by all. Due to the inspiration behind them, they give off a masculine, authoritative appeal that demands respect.
Pendant necklaces for men tell people you’re confident in who you are
Anyone can wear a necklace but not every man will go the extra mile to choose a pendant necklace that says something specific about them. Being the type of man who wears a pendant necklace gives off the idea that you know what you want; you’re creative, original and proud of it. People will associate your sense of style with confidence, whether it’s in a job interview, late night out with the guys or a first date. So, you can’t go wrong with this type of necklace. You just have to be sure to pick one that actually reflects your personality.
Beaded necklaces for men show your modesty
Beaded necklaces are perfect for the minimalist; the type of man who is modest and who doesn’t feel the need to show off all their luxury items. These luxury necklaces for men show that you clearly have elegant taste and an appreciation for the finer things, but that you’re not over the top and flashy. You’re humble and modest.
Men’s accessories provide a sophisticated and stylish way for you to show off your personality but it’s important that they’re true to who you are as a man. So, follow this men’s style guide for accessories and make sure your dapper aspirations are reflecting everything you actually want them to.
