The male jewelry industry has been growing steadily over the past few years, with more and more men taking an interest in wearing jewelry. While it used to be customary for men to only wear their wedding rings and watches, times have changed, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Men are now free to wear any type of jewelry they want. However, if you’re someone trendy who likes to stay on top of the latest fashion, we’ll be guiding you through the hottest male jewelry trends for this year.
Whether you’re a minimalist at heart or want to make a statement, everyone will be able to find something that suits their taste.
Ah, rings. For many years now, rings have been one of the top trends when it comes to male jewelry, and we don’t see that changing any time soon. Rings are a classic, and a staple in any fashionable man’s jewelry collection. Whether you’re a simple man who prefers one statement ring, or someone who likes to express himself with his jewelry, rings are a must-have. For the more understated, minimalistic man, we recommend titanium rings. These are such an eye-catcher that they can be worn on their own. For the more adventurous and bold, feel free to mix and match between different sizes, colors and textures of rings to create a jaw dropping look.
Earrings were popular amongst men for a while, and then the trend seemed to disappear. That being said, earrings have slowly been making a comeback. There are so many types of earrings that nearly every man will find one that he likes. When it comes to ear piercings alone, the options are endless. From how many ear piercings you get to where on your ear they’re placed . . . the choice is yours. A lot of men are now having ear gauges and ear weights and this trend is set to continue. Of course, feel free to get any color earrings you like, but we predict that silver earrings will be the hottest male earrings of 2021.
Speaking of earrings . . . other piercings seem to be gaining popularity amongst men, especially facial piercings. If you want to follow one of the hottest trends of 2021, piercings are the way to go. We’d recommend you start with one, to see how you feel about it. If you feel like facial piercings are your style, you have tons of options. Lip piercings, nose piercings, and even eyebrow piercings are all facial piercings that men have been trying. If you’re wondering why tongue piercings aren’t on the list, it’s because they’re not as popular anymore, and therefore not a trend (although, don’t let that stop you if you really want one). Just be sure you have the necessary information on how to take care of your piercings. Nose piercings in particular require a lot of care.
Another classic that is here to stay. Watches aren’t strictly necessary anymore, since most of us can easily check the time on our phones. So, it’s a true testament to how stylish they are that watches have stuck around even though they’re not really needed anymore. There are various types of watches, and most people have very strong opinions about what the best men’s watches are, but we suggest you choose a style that fits your personality and wardrobe. As far as trends go, wooden watches have been growing increasingly popular, and that increase will most likely continue throughout this year.
Chains and necklaces
For quite a long time, chains were the main – if not only – type of jewelry that men wore around their necks. Not just any chains, either. Big, bulky chains. While these still appear to be popular, more and more men are leaning towards finer pieces of neck jewelry, such as delicate, thinner chains. And while those are definitely a trend for the upcoming year, the hottest trend by far is any type of necklace that has a pendant.
Big, chunky bracelets have been a trend when it comes to male wristwear, and we don’t see that changing anytime soon. However, one thing is changing – while the most popular material for men’s bracelets for quite a while has been metal, that is slowly being replaced by leather. Thick leather bands, or thin leather cords – the choice is yours. You may think that leather bracelets are quite boring and don’t offer much variety, but if you mix and match between colors and width, you may find out why leather bracelets are such a popular trend this year. You can also opt for faux leather if you want to save some money.
