This fall, there are quite a few unique newcomers on the men’s accessories scene that are taking swanky style to the next level. And if you are an avid accessory and jewelry aficionado yourself, you’re probably already on the lookout for the latest style crazes that can give your bling game a dapper makeover. From single pearl chokers to unique sleeve clips and from crochet details to singlet bling and even Velvet Caviar Xs max cases, here are some of the hottest trends of the moment in men’s fashion.
1. Single Pearl Necklaces and Bracelets
One of the hottest newcomers in the men’s accessory game is no other than the gem of the sea, aka the pearl. Worn on minimalistic leather, rope or tweed, both as bracelet or as a necklace, pearls are now one of the most sought-after gems used in unisex jewelry. If you are willing to give this trend a try, opt for rich Tahitian pearls in darker hues or go for a classic ivory white pearl in a unique shape, such as Baroque – alternatively, sport mother of pearl jewelry to get that same gorgeous iridescence that catches the eye. For a daytime look, pair your solitaire pearl bracelet or necklace with a casual, possibly marine-inspired watch. And as for nighttime, opt for dark, rich pearls that feature peacock iridescence and pair them with brown hued or sleek black leather watches.
2. Sleeve Clips
Your jewelry box features quite an impressive collection of cufflinks – and you’re an avid wearer, especially when it comes to accessorizing your sharp blazers, tweed jackets and formal attire. But if you find cufflinks a tad too posh for everyday, casual style, meet their close relative: chic, trendy sleeve clips! Not only do sleeve clips serve a functional purpose by keeping your rolled up sleeves in place, but they can also define your unique sense of style. Whether you opt for a quirky pair, a retro design or a classic and minimalistic pair of sleeve clips, you can definitely rock them on repeat with the widest range of shirts, from plaid hipster style to pinstripe-casual and even crisp white-formal.
3. Nylon Strap Watches
While sleek black leather watches as well as glossy gold ones are still on top of their game, this season calls for at least one nylon strap watch in your arsenal. What was formerly known as a casual staple designed to accompany your relaxed daywear out on the weekend, the nylon strap watch has now achieved a posher status. Navy-inspired, striped or in solid designs, nylon has definitely made a comeback. If you’re willing to give this trend a try, make sure to pair your new nylon acquisition with stackable bracelets featuring leather, rope, beads or twine.
4. Crochet Ties
Crochet is having a major fashion moment in women’s fashion – so big, that it has recently made the travel towards men’s style as well. This year, the hottest catwalks of the world all featured crochet details – and our favorites were no other than retro ties, both in tight, regular and extra-wide styles. Sharp tailoring is all you need in order to pull off one of these crochet beauties, whether that means rocking your slim-fit suit or cropped skinnies with a denim shirt. As for the color options, opt for neutrals if you’re just starting to test out this trend or go all in on bold and bright color if you want to achieve a creative and playful effect.
5. Signet Rings
One of the hottest trends to explore in 2018 is no other than signet rings. You’ve probably already seen them everywhere, from the red carpet, on your favorite social media fashion trendsetters and on the covers of stylemagazines. They were big in 2017 and fact is, this hot trend shows no signs of slowing down. Featuring symbols and letters carved in, signet rings used to be considered a sign of nobility – but these days, they can be a symbol of your favorite sports team, your pet’s name, your special someone’s initials or, why not, yourcountry’s flag.
