Stacking Bracelet

A stack bracelet is one of the most sought-after accessorizing trend that many men secretly wish to wear. Stacking bracelets are worn together with other bracelets on one wrist for a neutral, carefree, and individual look.

The trick is to find thin bracelets to stack, or even find a bracelets that gives the stacking look it itself. You can start stacking 2 to 4 men’s bracelets that have the same theme. You can try 2 bracelets of the same metal, or you can mix a metallic one with a different colored one. Also, do not stack thick, metal bracelets as it will be cumbersome for everyday wear. Wear a watch that your bracelets go together without too much contrast. A more refined watch can pair well with a thinner bracelet. Don’t be afraid to experiment.
