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.
