If you are wondering whether to wear bracelets on both wrists as a man, there are three things you need to consider:
- What outfit are you wearing?
- What is your personality / what sort of personal style do you wish to portray?
- How comfortable are you wearing men’s bracelets?
What outfit are you wearing?
Wearing men’s bracelets on both your wrists really depends on what outfit you are wearing.
If you are wearing a casual outfit such as shorts or jeans, you can easily pull off wearing men’s bracelets on both wrists.
You may also get away with wearing men’s bracelets on both wrists with a smart casual look.
However, do not wear men’s bracelets on both wrists if you are wearing men’s business or professional wear – unless you are a rockstar.
What is your personality / what sort of personal style do you wish to portray?
When you wear a bracelet for a man, you are making a fashion statement.
The number of bracelets you wear or whether you wear your men’s bracelets on both wrists will portray a message.
If you have a rockstar personality / dress sense, you can flawlessly wear as many bracelets as you would like on both your wrists – these would probably be mainly leather / beaded bracelets.
If you have a hip-hop personality, you could get away with stacking multiple bracelets on one or both wrists – but these would probably be mainly chain or metallic bracelets.
If you are just a fashion conscious man who likes looking trendy, you can also wear bracelets on both wrists – but you should choose your men’s bracelets wisely.

How comfortable are you wearing men's bracelets?
If you’ve just started out wearing men’s bracelets, we would advise you to stick to one wrist.
If you’ve had experience wearing men’s bracelets and are comfortable with trying them on your other wrist, feel free to experiment. However, we would advise you to start out with small ones until you are comfortable wearing larger men’s bracelets.
There are four things you should remember when styling multiple men’s bracelets on both wrists.
- Mix up different types of bracelets
- Don’t overdo men’s bracelets on both wrists
- Mix up different sizes of bracelets
- Style your men’s bracelet colours in such a way that they counter balance each other
Mix up different types of bracelets
When wearing men’s bracelets on both wrists, wear different types of bracelets for a cool casual look.
You could wear a men’s beaded bracelet on one wrist and a thin leather bracelet plus cuff bracelet on the other wrist.
Don't overdo men's bracelets on both wrists
Our personal preference in order to look classy is to wear your men’s bracelets on just one wrist.
If you are wearing a watch, you could wear it on your other wrist.
If you do want to wear men’s bracelets on both wrists, look for that balance.
If you are wearing more bracelets on one wrist, wear fewer bracelets on the other wrist.
Or you could wear more bracelets on one wrist, and then wear one thin bracelet plus a watch on the other wrist.
Use your mirror and gut instinct to determine what looks good and what doesn’t. Check with your friends or girlfriend.
Wearing lots of bracelets on both wrists would only work if you are a rock star or an influencer / celebrity.
Mix up different sizes of men's bracelets
Wear various sizes of men’s bracelets when stacking them on both your wrists.
You could opt for one large bracelet on one wrist and two small bracelets on your other wrist.
Mixing up the sizes of the bracelets gives your wrist look a good balance.
Style your men's bracelet colours in such a way that they counter balance each other
When wearing men’s bracelets on both wrists, mix up the colours to give it some variety.
If you’re wearing bold colours, break up these colours with neutral colours such as black, brown or white.
When mixing up various types of bracelets, you could go for a silver cuff with a brown or black leather bracelet.
If you wearing a green beaded men’s bracelet, you could mix it up with a black leather bracelet.
Neutral colours help dim the colour of the bold bracelet and also help match them better with your outfit.
