Alright fellas, let’s talk. When it comes to elevating your outfit, accessories matter. Sure, you can accessorize with the perfect backpack or stylish sunglasses, but jewelry is another low-key way to kick your style up a notch and express your personality. And newsflash: you don’t have to be a rock star to dawn some stylish wrist candy. The best bracelets for men should work in any situation, from the beach to the board room.
Men’s bracelets come in many different styles and shapes — ranging from full-blown survival bracelets built for your next adventure out in the wilderness to nautical, boho-inspired beaded bracelets that will leave even the most seasoned pirate of the Caribbean impressed. But with so many options, it can all be very overwhelming.
So to help you out, here are some of the best men’s bracelets that will keep you looking sharp in 2020.
1. Caputo & Co. Clean Metal Cuff Bracelet
The sleek and simple design, along with its matte black finish, makes the Caputo & Co. Metal Cuff the best bracelet for men to wear on any occasion. Whether you dress it up and throw it on your wrist before heading into work or pop it on as you’re leaving for your buddy’s house, it can work effortlessly with any outfit. You can also grab the cuff in a weathered brass vintage finish if you’re more of a gold guy. But the best part about this versatile staple piece is that it’s easy on the wallet, and what’s not to like about that?
2. Swarovski Cross Signature Bracelet
BEST UNDERSTATED BLING
If you want to rock a little bit of sparkle on your wrist, then meet the Swarovski Cross Signature Bracelet. The refined men’s bracelet is crafted with braided black leather and sleek rose gold plated accents. To top it all off, the metal charm is coated with a layer of black Swarovski crystals, giving the piece just the right amount of ice.
3. David Yurman Curb Chain Bracelet
BEST CHAIN BRACELET
A quick scroll through social media will show you that chain bracelets are very trendy at the moment. The chain bracelet has been a staple in men’s fashion for a long time, but this David Yurman Curb Chain isn’t your grandfather’s bracelet. The curb chain design adds a contemporary edge that also allows for the silver links to sit flat on your wrist. Several sizes are available so that you can find the one that fits best.
4. Miansai Hook Bracelet
BEST NAUTICAL BRACELET
Nautical bracelets can be tricky to pull off, but the Miansai Hook Bracelet will surely, well, hook you. The maritime cord provides a seagoing look, but the band isn’t going to leave you with rope burn like some other nautical-themed bracelets tend to do. A silver fishhook with the Miansai name engraved on the side fastens the adjustable rope to achieve the perfect fit. Whether you’re spending a day on a yacht, hitting up the beach, or just dreaming of summer, the nautical style will set you in the perfect vibe. The bracelet is available in a variety of hook finishes and cord colors.
5. Degs & Sal Bead Bolo Bracelet
BEST BEADED BRACELET
A band of carefully selected tiger eye beads surrounds the sterling silver accents in this natural and exotic bracelet. The drawstring closure allows for a customized fit, while the precious metal adds a little something special to elevate the look. The bracelet is also available in matte black onyx stones, surrounding a silver skull in the middle.
6. Prada Braided Leather Bracelet
BEST POP OF COLOR
These leather bracelets allow you to effortlessly achieve a stacked look with the ease of a single Prada stamped clasp. The best part? They’re available in three different color pairings, including navy blue and orange, blue and green or black and blue. Now, if the dual colors aren’t your thing, don’t worry. They’re also available in a variety of solid colors as well.
7. Steve Madden Trio Bracelet Set
BEST STACKED BRACELET FOR MEN
This bad boy packs a one-two punch. Not only is it our favorite stacked bracelet of the moment, but it’s also one of the best men’s bracelets under $100. On top of the cool price point, the set includes three bracelets — allowing you the freedom to mix and match as you choose. The multi-pack consists of three unique bracelets: a black leather twist with silver clasp, a semiprecious stone bracelet with tiger eye and black onyx beads, and a blue beaded bracelet to add a splash of color. Wear them all at once or let them fly solo, but it’s a great value either way.
8. Paul Smith Woven Leather Wrap Bracelet
BEST BOHEMIAN BRACELET
This bracelet features lightweight leather woven into a durable yet wearable piece. Silver, gold and black-tone metal accents elevate the boho wrap, which secures in an engraved lobster clasp. The secure design ensures this leather bracelet won’t fly off your wrist during all of your boho adventures (or to the grocery store).
