We'll show you how to elevate your look by pairing STEEL & BARNETT bracelets together in different ways, so you can create stylish and cohesive outfits.

Let's get started, shall we?! To achieve an elegant and sophisticated bracelet pairing, various factors need to be taken into account in order to create an overall fashionable look. First, it's important to have a clear idea of the style and vibe you want to achieve. Do you want a bohemian and eclectic look, or something more minimalist and modern? This will help you choose bracelets that complement each other and work well with your desired aesthetic.
When it comes down to styling and pairing different bracelets, an important factor to consider is the color palette. While you don't have to stick to a single color, it's best to choose colors that work well together and complement each other. For example, if you're going for a beachy look, you might choose earthy tones like beige, brown, and turquoise. Alternatively, if you want a more elegant and understated look, you might opt for black, silver, and gold. Or maybe you want to elevate your business look? In that case pairing stainless steel and dark blue would be a great idea. However, if you're not sure where to start, a classic approach is to pair neutral colors with pops of bright or bold hues. For example, you might wear some neutral-toned bracelets - such as beige or black – paired with a bright turquoise or coral bracelet to add a pop of color. We would advise to not pair too many colors together, since that might be too overpowering and have the opposite effect of what you were hoping for.

Texture and material
When it comes to pairing bracelets together, considering the texture and material is just as important as considering the colors. Mixing different materials and textures can create an interesting visual contrast and add depth to your overall look. Leather bracelets are a classic choice that can add a rugged and edgy touch to any outfit. They pair well with other materials like metal, beads, or fabric, and can be stacked together in various combinations to create a layered look. Beaded bracelets, on the other hand, add a bohemian and earthy vibe, and come in a variety of colors and shapes. Gold or stainless steel bracelets can add a sleek and modern touch to any outfit. Mixing metal with other materials, like leather or beads, can create a unique and eclectic look that's sure to make a statement. Always try to find a balance that feels cohesive and harmonious.
Size and width
When selecting bracelets to pair together, it's also important to consider the size and thickness of the bracelets. Mixing and matching bracelets of different sizes and thicknesses creates a dynamic and visually interesting look. STEEL & BARNETT has an amazing range of widths in their collections. For example the Bonacci bracelet which wraps around your wrist twice, could perfectly be worn on its own, or you could pair it with any bracelets like Luke Landon or Natural Ned for an elaborate wrist outfit. Our golden and stainless steel bracelets, Valence Vic and Svelte Stephen, pair extremely well with any leather or beaded bracelets styles, no matter the width. On the slides below, you can see a variety of pairings with different widths for inspiration.
The occasion and your personal style
In addition to these factors, it's also important to consider the occasion and your personal style. While it's great to experiment with different looks and styles, you should ultimately choose bracelets that make you feel comfortable and confident. For example, if you prefer a more understated look, you might choose a few delicate bracelets that complement each other. For example, you could match the Memphis bracelet together with Riley or Grady for an elegant look. On the other hand, if you like a bolder look, you might opt for a mix of statement bracelets such as pairing a Two Tone bracelet together with Luke Landon and Colourful Cal.
How many bracelets should I wear?
How many bracelets can a guy wear? In general we would advise to keep the amount of bracelets varying between one and three. If you wear less bracelets you can create a more elegant look. When you would combine more styles, your look will be more casual and laid-back. However, we wouldn't advise to wear three thick bracelets at the same time, since that might create the opposite effect of what you were hoping for. We also advise you to not wear them on both sides, so wear all bracelets you want to stack on one wrist for a more put together look. When you wear a watch, you could choose to add a single bracelet to the same wrist or accessorize the opposite wrist with your bracelet stack.

It's important to remember that there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to pairing bracelets together. While these tips can help you create a stylish and cohesive look, ultimately it's up to you to choose the bracelets that make you feel confident and put together. So experiment, have fun, and find the combinations that work best for you!
