Trend: Bracelets For Men



"This fall, J. Crew is featuring striped friendship bracelets - inspired by '30s-era club ties - in its mean's collection, each hand-made in London with hand-dyed linen and secured with an elegant metal buckle."

An arm full of friendship bracelets and the like are a very cute and trendy way to add a little color to an outfit. Don't put on too many or you will look kind of hippie. This trendy is very simple and cheap - unlike others that are expensive (colored skinny jeans). You can either make them yourself or buy a bunch from the store such as J. Crew, AE or a local arts and craft store. Just be creative with it.

Or for the cheap crafters out there, these are insanely easy to make.
That's why so many small girls are taught to make them at summer camps.
I like the idea of this, especially if paired with a really clean and simple rolled cuff shirt.


On the other hand, I am not at all thrilled with the whole colored skinny jeans thing. Doesn't everyone know that they'll be in and out in just a few months?

I thought colored skinny jeans were in? Well I saw Hill Duff in some red ones, and some other young celeb in some electric blue ones in February with Biker chic boots. Okay idk anymore. Im sure UGGS are dead as hell though, and Im tired of booties.

LOL I forgot to actually post about the bracelets. I think that they boraden menswear way more, and open up more possibilities to be more creative and expressive. But then again, I cant see myself wearing one. It took me awhile to accept the rossary's trend, LOL.

Colored SKinnys are still out...I'm not saying that you CAN NOT absolutely wear them - But at the same time you will be picked up by the fashion police and put in jail with a $234,498 bail. LOl. So be careful. And yes, men need more options when it comes to accesorising...women are so lucky.

If you really want to learn how to make them, it'll take you all of five minutes to look up some quick instructions on Google/Earthle. Just search for something like "How to make a friendship bracelet." Lame, but it'll work. All you'll need at that point it some embroidery thread and some other long thing fabric materials to mix it up and make it quirky.


I suppose we're lucky with accessories, but you guys get the better fragrances.
That's a fair trade, I think. ;]

You really think men have better fragrances??
I think it's the opposite, I like light perfumes!!
Men colognes are too overpowering.
