A Light Bracelet Really Packs
a Punch

They’re slim and subtle, but still make a statement

Go ahead and call them dainty. They can take it. We're talking about the fresh crop of lightweight jewelry popping up on men's wrists these days. The delicate chains and cuffs, made from a range of metals, are almost weightless in their appearance. You'd think an accessory with such small stature would be a blink-and-you'll miss it flex, but trust us—when you pull on one of these bracelets, people notice.

I've been wearing a thin chain bracelet that I picked up at Miansai's Venice Beach shop for the last few months and it's been earning me quite a few compliments. I think people notice when I'm gesturing while talking or when I extend my hand for a handshake. Sometimes I'll simply clock their eyes darting to my wrist. Other times, they'll comment on the bracelet or ask where I got it. In any case, it's clear it's given my otherwise simple style a shot of subtle luxury.

Especially going into warmer weather, where we just naturally wear less clothes and the sleeves get shorter. Having some metal around your wrist is a quick and effective way to elevate a simple outfit consisting of your favorite jeans and a plain white tee. Or that crocheted camp collar shirt you'll eventually wear with some shorts? These were tailored made for those, too. And best of all, they're now available in a range of styles and price points to suit anyone's taste and budget.
