Wear With Confidence

A man who is confident in himself and in his wears is the archetype of a stylish man. Some men don’t put on jewellery because they not sure how it would look on them. You start with something as simple as a bracelet.

Less Is Better

You don’t need to put on every piece of jewellery you have to look stylish. The goal is to look stylish not blind your admirers with all that bling. Moreover, over-accessorising comes off as ostentatious, distracting, and can look unprofessional. One necklace is enough, you’re not 2 Chainz.

Match Your Metal

One key to mastering the art of wearing jewellery is to match your metals.  This is key to mastering a put-together look. Your gold watch should match the colour of your ring, the embellishments on your shoes, and the shade of your belt buckle.

Does It Match Your Skin Tone?

Not all pieces of jewellery would look good on you. Certain metals or gemstones look better against different skin tones. Note that your skin colour is not the same as your skin tone. Look at your skin in natural light and find a spot wear veins are noticeable.

Match warm undertones with warmer colours like red, orange, coral, and gold. Match the cooler undertones with silver, blue, and green.
