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.

Feel inspired by the distinct style of these men as they show you how to wear jewellery and look endlessly suave.

Editor-in-Chief of Another Man Magazine, Ben Cobb, transports onlookers back to 1974 with his original style. Cobb looks as if hes been plucked from a Tom Wolfe novel, with his retro aesthetic and authentic masculinity. Flared trousers paired with silk shirts is his signature look, mastered through a refined attitude towards texture and pattern. The few ornate jewellery pieces sported by Cobb embellish his looks elegantly. Flashes of layered pendants are revealed beneath his unbuttoned shirts, and he is often photographed wearing with a onyx stone signet ring. The editor proves that men need only a few key jewellery pieces to elevate an outfit.
