In 2022, men’s jewelry will play an even larger role in male fashion than it does today, as it’s expected to be the number one fashion trend among men around the world. Already, you can see men’s jewelry gaining popularity in places like France and Japan, where bracelets and rings are increasingly seen on the wrists and fingers of stylish men of all ages. In just five years, we’ll see leather and metal bracelets alike give way to silicone bracelets, which will become increasingly popular as they grow more fashionable, colorful, and affordable.
What kind of jewelry will men wear in 2022?
Expect to see rings made of new materials (i.e., not precious metals) become popular by 2022. Changing your look or even just switching up your jewelry is an easy way to make an outfit pop or even complete a wardrobe without having to purchase anything else; as a result, it makes sense that men will be into different jewelry types—especially if they’re affordable. If you’re looking for inspiration, take a look at today’s fashion-forward men who are often wearing leather bracelets on their wrists or colorful silk neckties around their necks.
Will men wear bracelets, rings, or both?
No one knows what men will wear five years from now. But it’s fun to speculate. I imagine by 2022, men will be wearing a leather bracelet and rings on both hands—just like characters did in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982). In fact, I predict men will adopt elements of that movie’s wardrobe wholesale. Think about it: if you were creating a new style from scratch, how would you dress? You wouldn’t just pull ideas out of thin air, right? You’d look at other examples of styles that have come before—ideas that have proven popular or effective—and attempt to build something bigger than your predecessors by adding your own twists. So let’s do that here!
What style trends will be most popular for men?
Last year, I made a prediction about some style trends that would be popular for men, but I thought it would be fun to discuss what my thoughts are on what is going to be big (or not) a couple of years from now. In 2022, we’ll have reached a point where technology will play a much bigger role in our lives than it does today. We’re starting to see that emerge right now as smart homes are slowly becoming reality. But once we start bringing wearables into our daily lives, wearing technology becomes even more common. Therefore, I’m going to predict that leather bracelets like Fitbit will make a resurgence amongst men looking for new accessories. Just don’t call them ‘bracelets’.
What kinds of leather bracelets will be worn?
To gain a more specific understanding of what kind of leather bracelets you may see popular in 5 years, consider how people’s tastes have changed over time. In 1980, cologne was all about Poison and Drakkar Noir, but by 1990 Obsession was all you saw on commercials and TV shows. In 2010, guys were still wearing Calvin Klein or D&G every day but that’s about to change. Today we’re going to talk about some of our favorite fashion trends from back then that are making a comeback
How many bracelets will be worn at once?
Almost 3 out of every 10 men will be wearing 2 or more bracelets at once. We’re now seeing that many guys prefer to layer bracelets together, and it’s not just a style choice anymore. It is now also seen as a way to express your individuality as well as show off your love for certain causes you believe in. As more and more people are learning about breast cancer awareness through Pink October and companies like American Express, both men and women alike have started to purchase multiple bracelets to stack together on their wrists at one time.
Fashion Accessories and Jewelry for Men
Fashion accessories are items that do not necessarily have a main purpose other than looking stylish. Many men make jewelry part of their regular outfits by wearing wristwatches, rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and more. In 2022 fashion trends will include more men wearing jewelry as well as new materials like carbon fiber to make customized fashion accessories. Jewelry will also become more complex with things like crystals being used to enhance color or shine while lighter materials such as titanium will be used instead of gold. Carbon fiber is already a popular material because it doesn’t scratch or chip easily so jewelry made from it is less likely to need replacement during its lifetime.
