In the past, most men were not easily swayed by fashion Summer Bracelet Fashiontrends, especially when it came to accessories. Today, the bracelet trend is not just for men fashion icons, such as Johnny Depp and Keith Richards, but is finding its way onto wrists of men everywhere. Men’s bracelets are also starting to appear in women’s fashion magazines. In the April 2012 issue of Glamour, actor Ian Somerhalder of The Vampire Diaries is seen wearing a beaded bracelet made by Fragments, along with a ring and t-shirt from Alternative. Men’s bracelet trends for this summer includes plenty of metals, strings, ropes, beads, and maybe a few stones.

Titanium Black Cable Bracelet
Black continues to be the choice of color for many guys who sport men’s jewelry. For this summer season, try a multi-layered bracelet of black cable, connected by titanium links. This bracelet trend is typically seen in 4 to 6mm width cables, held together by a standard lobster claw clasp.

Rubber and Sterling Silver
For a casual bracelet trend, the sporty rubber and sterling silver combo is getting great reviews. This bracelet is typically seen in contrasting wavy colors around the rubber band. It also features stainless steel accents used to help balance the bracelet’s bold angles and shades.

Yellow “H” Bracelet
Formal events require a men’s bracelet style that is more polished and visual in design. Try a 14K yellow gold “H” style bracelet that exudes quality while still being affordable. Choose a width that goes well with your body structure, from 1/4 to 1/2in in width.

Silver Handcuff Bracelet
This trend has been seen in previous years but is now just hitting the male crowd. Finished in stainless steel, this bracelet is designed to represent one-half of a set of handcuffs. This bracelet has been seen with carbon-fiber trim or in all stainless steel. These bracelets also give the traditional handcuff “click” when its closure is shut.

Colored Woven Leather Bracelet
Leather is a timeless classic in men’s accessories and continues to be trendy in the form of bracelets. Try a bracelet made from Italian leather in a palette of muted shades that retain masculinity. Stick with stainless steel embellishments and clasps. Wear several colored men’s leather bracelets together in blacks, browns, or colored leathers.

The key to wearing men’s bracelets is to ensure that the materials and colors are balanced. Neutral brown and black leathers pair well with colored nylon cords. Mixing and matching is also ideal. Men’s bracelets can be worn with both formal and casual attire, even suits. Try this trick as a subtle way to relax a rigid corporate dress code.
