Jewellery Strictly For The Boys

May 9, 2008
Dazzling and trendy -- but who says only women gets to wear it?

Sure enough, men are also into accessorizing themselves as it adds more character, style, and personality from an everyday plain get-up morphing into a look that deserves more than just a second glance.

Since the ancient times, men and women have been accessorizing to promote social status and affiliation to a particular group. At one point, though, it was viewed that men wearing jewellery are considered effeminate. With the introduction of modern concepts, men wearing what were previously considered only for women are now treated as self expression.

However, there is a fine line between choosing the correct bling blings that still pull off a masculine look as opposed to being a walking advertisement for a jewelry store. Before choosing any of these fancy items, be sure to evaluate your level of comfort wearing them and the over-all appearance that you would want to project.

Earrings would definitely be one of the first jewelries in that bling bling list. Creativity and variety are the key points here since they are not limited to only the earlobes. Piercing eyebrows, tongue, lips or any other part of the body are contemporary self expressions although it is strongly suggested not to go overboard by getting too much. You might want to let others appreciate your piercing and not make them wince by just looking at you.

If you are tall, avoid wearing long necklaces so as not to emphasize your height and instead maintain a semblance of lateral balance. It is best to opt for chains with lesser length in this case. The reverse is true if you're leaning on the shorter height. Longer chains would work on you while the necklaces closer to the neck would only make you look shorter than you really are.

Muscular guys can manage to wear weighty necklaces while those with leaner bodies are advised to choose lighter ones. Consider the volume of the necklace you are choosing since it would look and feel awkward if the entire appearance would be out of proportion.

Same principle with the necklaces would actually apply in selecting rings and bracelets. These four are the basic accessories for men and combining them with each other or with any other types of jewelries are not possible, depending on the occasion. Tone down the others if you have chosen one particular showy piece so as not to make the details clash instead of complimenting you.

One last thought: while it is true that there are, shall we say, universal guidelines in picking up jewellery for both men and women, it is important to stress your own attributes and be confident.

Fashion would probably demand the uniformity of trend and style and with it is the constant change all throughout the season. But the best criterion is really your personality.

Remember that individual character makes the full works and jewellery only enhances what you've already got.
