Alright fellas, let’s talk. When it comes to elevating your outfit, accessories matter. Sure, you can accessorize with the perfect backpack or stylish sunglasses, but jewelry is another low-key way to kick your style up a notch and express your personality. And newsflash: you don’t have to be a rock star to don some stylish wrist candy. The best bracelets for men should work in any situation, from the beach to the board room.
Men’s bracelets come in many different styles and shapes — ranging from full-blown survival bracelets built for your next adventure out in the wilderness to nautical, boho-inspired beaded bracelets that will leave even the most seasoned pirate of the Caribbean impressed. But with so many options, it can all be very overwhelming.
So to help you out, here are some of the best men’s bracelets that will keep you looking sharp in 2020.
1. TOM FORD Woven Leather and Gold-Tone Wrap Bracelet
We love everything about this handsome leather bracelet for men from designer Tom Ford. The designer’s signature bracelet comes in either black or brown leather with either silver- or gold-tone hardware, although we prefer the brown-and-gold version pictured below. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this men’s bracelet, which is perfect for both casual and formal attire. This woven leather bracelet is made in Italy and wraps around your wrist several times over. Of course, if you don’t want to spend $450 on the best men’s bracelet of 2020, you can always buy the $50 Steve Madden version of this bracelet instead.
2. Alice Made This Maxwell Copper Cuff
BEST CUFF BRACELET
Looking for a cuff bracelet? This type of understated metal jewelry is one of the most popular styles of men’s jewelry at the moment, as it’s not too flashy and thus easy to match to your outfits. This copper cuff from designer Alice Made This evokes rose gold and will look great around any man’s wrist. Head to Mr Porter to score this popular bracelet for men, which is precision-cut in the UK from a piece of recycled copper that was then scorched, shaped, buffed and polished by hand to achieve a one-of-a-kind look.
3. Miansai Hook Bracelet
BEST NAUTICAL BRACELET
Miansai is one of our favorite men’s jewelry brands, and this bracelet is one of their best. Nautical bracelets can be tricky to pull off, but the Miansai Hook Bracelet will surely, well, hook you. The maritime cord provides a seagoing look, but the band isn’t going to leave you with rope burn like some other nautical-themed bracelets tend to do. A silver fishhook with the Miansai name engraved on the side fastens the adjustable rope to achieve the perfect fit. Whether you’re spending a day on a yacht, hitting up the beach, or just dreaming of summer, the nautical style will set you in the perfect vibe. The bracelet is available in a variety of hook finishes and cord colors.
4. Steve Madden 3-Piece Bracelet Set
BEST STACKED BRACELET FOR MEN
This bad boy packs a one-two punch. Not only is it our favorite stacked bracelet of the moment, but it’s also one of the best men’s bracelets under $100. On top of the cool price point, the set includes three bracelets — allowing you the freedom to mix and match as you choose. The multi-pack consists of three unique bracelets: a black braided leather twist, a black beaded bracelet featuring a Buddha head in the middle and a silver chain bracelet to tie it all together. Wear them all at once or let them fly solo, but it’s a great value either way.
5. Mister Crown Bracelet
MOST REGAL BRACELET
Do you want to feel like royalty? Then spring for this metal men’s bracelet with an all-around crown motif. The bracelet is available in silver and gold colors, but we recommend you go for gold with this one. If you like the idea of feeling like royalty but prefer a beaded bracelet, then you’ll want to check out the Mister King Bead Bracelet, too.
6. Swarovski Cross Signature Bracelet
BEST UNDERSTATED BLING
If you want to rock a little bit of sparkle on your wrist, then meet the Swarovski Cross Signature Bracelet. The refined men’s bracelet is crafted with braided black leather and sleek rose gold plated accents. To top it all off, the metal charm is coated with a layer of black Swarovski crystals, giving the piece just the right amount of ice.
7. David Yurman Curb Chain Bracelet
BEST CHAIN BRACELET
A quick scroll through social media will show you that chain bracelets are very trendy at the moment. The chain bracelet has been a staple in men’s fashion for a long time, but this David Yurman Curb Chain isn’t your grandfather’s bracelet. The curb chain design adds a contemporary edge that also allows for the silver links to sit flat on your wrist. Several sizes are available so that you can find the one that fits best.
8. Valentino Garavani Rockstud Leather Bracelet
This Valentino leather bracelet is really bringing us back to our goth middle school days in the best way possible, which is something we thought we’d never say. No, you don’t have to throw on a Slipknot tee again for old time’s sake, we suggest you try incorporating this into your modern-day style a surprising twist of an accessory option. It fastens like a belt, giving a little bit of room for various wrist sizes.
9. Esquire Tiger’s Eye and Onyx Beaded Bolo Bracelet
BEST BEADED BRACELET
A band of carefully selected tiger eye and onyx beads surrounds the sterling silver accents in this natural and exotic bracelet. It’s 8 and a half inches in total but the drawstring closure allows for a customized fit, while the precious metal adds a little something special to elevate the look. It’s a totally stunning beaded piece that will surely elevate your entire look.
10. King Baby American Voices Hematite Glass Bead Bracelet
BEST POP OF COLOR
This hematite bracelet allows you to effortlessly achieve a beachy look with the ease of a single King Baby stamped clasp. The bracelet, like our previous choice, effortlessly portrays a beaded style and pairs a pop of red with a metallic, silver thin-beaded system. It has a lobster clasp to securely fit on your wrist, but that also means there’s very little room to stretch or move the design. Nonetheless, we love this striking red hematite. We suggest adding this bracelet to your more monotone outfits to add some elegance to your look.
11. Rastaclat NY Yankees Braided Bracelet
BEST FOR SPORTS FANS
Want to rep your favorite sports team even if sports are looking a little bit different right now? Well, Rastaclat has you covered. Rastaclat makes stylish braided bracelets for men with a wide variety of colors and designs (check out their stylish Void Bracelet), but what really sets them apart are their bracelets for sports fans. Rastaclat recently released a collection of both knotted and braided bracelets featuring the colors and mascots of your favorite NBA teams and MLB teams. Each bracelet is crafted to last a lifetime, so you won’t have to worry about these breaking even with constant wear. Best part of all? They’re super inexpensive.
12. Le Gramme Maillon Sterling Silver and Cord Bracelet
If you’re looking for something more minimal to drape around your wrist, this thin cord bracelet is a stylish, lower-key approach to accessorizing your arm. It’s semi-discreet in its look and could almost blend in with the cuff of your long-sleeve, only to show itself when you’ve got your sleeves rolled up. The cord contains one sole silver charm with tiny engravements for that subtle additive, bringing this cord into a more sophisticated world.
13. Roxanne Assoulin Set of Three Enamel and Gold-Tone Bracelets
Guys — don’t be afraid to add a little color into your life, even if it’s as wild as this Roxanne Assoulin 3-set. This eccentric, Lisa Frank-esque rainbow mess of a bracelet is just what you need to bring your monotone, otherwise mundane wardrobe up a notch or seven. Because it’s so wackily colored, it has the potential to match just about anything you pair it with, from a suit to a tee and jeans.
14. Konstantino Heonos Men’s Bracelet
BEST BAROQUE BRACELET
A style of this magnitude deserves the $800 price point because, damn, just take a peek at this beauty. It literally looks as if it were robbed from a Greek warrior in some long-ago battle. By giving us an aesthetic that makes it seem older than life itself in the best way possible, this bracelet from Konstantino is a new age staple that combines way, way, WAY pre-modern fashion with our current way of dressing effortlessly. If you wear this on the streets, don’t forget your chainmail at home. You never know when an arrow might be headed your way.
15. Tod’s Woven Leather and Silver-Tone Wrap Bracelet

BEST PARACORD BRACELET
A paracord bracelet is more than a fashion statement; it’s also a practical piece of EDC gear. Paracord bracelets let you keep a useful piece of survival gear on your wrist at all times. The Friendly Swede makes some of the best paracord bracelets, and we especially like this forest green rope bracelet with an adjustable stainless steel buckle.
17. Good Fishing Summer Bracelets for Men

For just $5, you can get this “bracelet” from Urban Outfitters in either blue, purple, camo multi, a yellow/black mix or light green multi. While it might seem like a waste of money to some, it really is a super dope way to add a pop of color to your wardrobe at a crazy affordable price.
