Just Bead It: Beaded Accessories for Guys

Beads for bros

SoCal’s sizzling in a pre-summer heat wave. Mother Nature’s giving Angelenos a little taste of the summer and by the looks of it, guys and girls alike will probably be living in loose tees and showing off as much skin as possible to offset the summer heat. And while our favorite summertime accessory is a good, thick layer of SPF and our trusty Miansai bracelets, this summer might just be the time for guys to try a few accessories that are out of their comfort zone.

Beaded bracelets, necklaces and more are the latest menswear trend that we spotted on the runways at Michael Bastian (courtesy of George Frost, the unisex line of jewelry that’s under the Lulu Frost umbrella) as well as off the runway during Florence’s Pitti Uomo fashion shows.

Think it’s a little too boho for your business suits? It is. So pair these beaded picks with your favorite shorts and chambray shirt during off-hours and summertime whites call for a belt that’s anything but boring. A colorful wrap bracelet could be proper peeking from under a cuff during morning meetings, but we say that the summer heat calls for a hot accessory overhaul for work and play.
