Men’s fashion month is upon us. London Fashion Week Men’s kicked off 2019’s fashion calendar last Saturday, dictating AW19’s most elegant jewellery trends to follow. Pitti Uomo - arguably the year’s most influential platforms for men’s fashion and accessories - is showcasing this year’s leading talents in menswear as we speak. It’s an exciting time in menswear, especially in jewellery. From the rise of gender-neutral jewellery to the interconnectivity between women’s and men’s jewellery trends, the way men are accessorising is evolving.
LFWM witnessed designers such as Charles Jeffrey pushing the boundaries of masculinity and femininity in terms of jewellery. By encouraging men to be fearless yet sensitive with their jewellery choices, designers are carving a new space for male self-expression. No longer are men limited to watches, cufflinks and tie pins. The diverse street style seen on the streets of London during Fashion Week Men’s (see here) demonstrated the creative and experimental potential jewellery lends itself to.
In celebration of authenticity and originality, discover the ten best dressed men of Instagram. A piece of jewellery can invigorate an outfit. Yet, authentic style is born when a piece of jewellery is elevated through confident sartorial choices. Feel inspired by the distinct style of these men as they show you how to wear jewellery and look endlessly suave.
