1. Believing bracelets are only for women
This is one of the most common mistakes and misconceptions when it comes to men and bracelets.
It is also far away from the truth. If you look far back in the history, jewelry (bracelets included) symbolized power, it symbolized wealth and where you came from and it could be worn both by men and women, kings and queens.
The last couple of years, a trend where bracelets have become an accepted accessory for men in the society, has taken place. The idea and belief that bracelets only are for women still lives on even though it isn’t the truth. So the beliving that bracelets only are for women is completely wrong.Actors like Johhny Depp, Jay
Celebrities like Johhny Depp, Jay-Z, Kanye West and David Beckham can often be seen wearing bracelets and that just shows that the belief that bracelets only are for women is completely wrong.
2. Not paying attention to the situation
When it comes to bracelets, knowing the situation and occasion that you’ll be going to should decide what bracelets you wear and therefore, it’s good to have a collection of bracelets that you can choose from depending on the situation.
Make sure you are adapting the way you use bracelets and which bracelets you use depending on the situation you’re in.
3. Not wearing it with confidence
The belief that bracelets only are for women can play a part in this. First of all, it’s important that you like the bracelets you are wearing. When looking at your bracelets, you have to go: “I like how that looks”. When you have purchased some bracelets that you are satisfied with, you have to practice wearing it. In the beginning, you might feel uncomfortable as you do with most things you aren’t used to but quickly, you’ll get used. Once you’ve gotten used to it, you’ll actually start enjoying your bracelets and finally, you won’t even notice they’re there. Until someone compliments you that is.
4. Wearing too many at once
Wearing too many bracelets at ones makes each piece disappear in the crowd. Instead, you want every individual piece to shine. This doesn’t not mean that you can ‘t stack several bracelets on one wrist but you should be careful about the way you do it.
5. Not wearing the right bracelets suitable for you
There are two things that play a part here. First, it is your wrist size. You shouldn’t wear bracelets that are too loose or too tight. You want your bracelets to sit just like a bespoke suit. This makes the overall appearance of your wrist and bracelet look better.
Secondly, another thing you should think about when it comes to wearing bracelets suitable for you is your skin type.
Generally, there are two skin types. Cool tone and warm tone. An easy way to see if you are one or the other is by looking at your wrist and if you can see your blue veins, you are a cool tone. If you have a warm tone, you won’t be able to see your veins very well.
Warm tones naturally looks better with gold bracelets and cool tone usually looks better with steel or silver. You just have to see which of those two suits best for you.
6. Not maintaining your bracelets
This is bad for several reasons. If you have bracelets with an elastic band, the plastic thread can become weak and ultimately snap. If you shower with your bracelets, you will cut the life of them significally.
8. Not asking for help
one big mistake that men make while buying jewelry is that they do not ask for help. Checking with a friend or the sales person to make sure that fits, that it’s worth the money, etc. can be a huge help and make a big difference.
