Tips on Bracelets Stacks for Men

Tips on Bracelets Stacks for Men

Bracelets stacking allows you to express your style and look by pairing different bracelets together. Stacked bracelets pair well with almost any look. Mix and match bracelets of varying sizes, materials, and colors to get the look you're going for.

Bracelets stacks

View Bracelets Stacks for Men

You can pair chunky metal bracelets with thick leather ones for an edgy rocker look. If you want something more feminine, you can choose lighter colors mixed with beaded bracelets, bangles, and string bracelets.

Here are a few tips to consider when stacking bracelets:

Pick a focal point

Consider the focal point first for an excellent bracelet stack and build around that with the rest of the bracelets. This will accent your main piece while creating a rich, textured look. Choose a bracelet you love and one that matches well with your outfit. When you identify the main piece, you can get other bracelets that highlight it without overwhelming the focal point. Some good options for focal point pieces are watches, leather bracelets, or metal cuff bracelets. 

Add accents

Once you've selected your focal point bracelet, you can go for accent pieces that complement it. The accent bracelets don't need to match the exact piece. The stack will look more appealing when you mix things up and get creative.

Mix materials

Anything goes when stacking bracelets; mixing different materials with different textures makes for a visually interesting combination. That means you can mix beads, metals, and leather with gemstones and whatever other combination you want.

View Bracelets Stacks for Men

Play with color

Use color in your bracelet stacks to make creative combinations. A color family for all the bracelets will give you a monochromatic look. The color should complement your outfit and stand out for a noticeable look. 

When it comes to men's stacked bracelets, there's no one-size-fits-all approach. When putting together pieces, let your style shine. Most importantly, experiment with different combinations.

HANDCRAFTED LEATHER BRACELETS BY NIALAYA


Juhani wears NIALAYA leather bracelets combined with NIALAYA beaded bracelets in New York City


THE INSPIRATION
Nialaya Founder and Designer, Jannik Olander sources inspiration for his new designs while travelling around the world. He spends most of his summers in southern Europe in places such as Mykonos, Greece and Ibiza, Spain – both strong inspiration sources for Jannik, which can certainly be noticed in a lot of Nialaya’s leather bracelet designs. Combining the bohemian touch that he gets from summers on the Europan islands, with the spirituality from Southeast Asia where Jannik first was inspired to start making jewelry, Nialaya’s leather bracelets are unique pieces of jewelry while also being exceptionally versatile.

 
 Our Black Leather Bracelet with Gold Bali Clasp Lock, available here and our
Black Leather Bracelet with Gold Anchor, available here


THE DESIGN AND CRAFTING
Nialaya’s leather bracelets are handcrafted in our design studio on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood. Using high-quality hand braided leathers that will only look better with age, and strong stainless steel details and closures, our leather bracelets are guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Our Black Leather Bracelet with Bali Clasp is a great example of an inspiration that came from one of Jannik’s trips to Bali, Indonesia. The stunning landscapes and laidback lifestyle inspired him to design a piece that would remind him of the time he spent on the astonishing island. The result became a one-of-a-kind leather piece, featuring a unique clasp in silver or gold with distinctive engraving. The bracelet is bohemian yet elegant and has been part of our collection for many years.

HOW TO STYLE OUR LEATHER BRACELETS
Our leather bracelet collection consists of pieces that are perfect for everyday-wear, while also looking great paired with a dressier look.
For everyday-wear, we love to layer the leather bracelets with a couple of
our colorful beaded bracelets to create a unique and casual look.
For nighttime looks, we prefer the leather bracelet either on its own or
paired with one of our matte black onyx beaded bracelets.

THE INSPIRATION
Jannik Olander collects inspiration for his healing crystal bracelet designs on his travels around the world as well as around his hometown, Los Angeles. The Californian nature, climate, and lifestyle strongly inspire Jannik and that can be noticed in a lot of Nialaya’s designs. In the video above, Jannik is taking his AC Cobra out for a spin on the Pacific Highway in Malibu - a place that he visits frequently to both clear his mind and to get inspired.

 
STAYING SUSTAINABLE
We believe in being friendly to the environment by sourcing most of our healing crystals from local vendors, and handcraft the bracelets in our Los Angeles studio. We don’t mass-produce or keep stock, but only make enough bracelets to fulfill orders and display our flagship store. Any damaged beaded bracelets are never thrown away, but we re-use and re-make the parts to create new beaded bracelets- we don't let anything go to waste. We strongly believe in being sustainable and as eco-friendly as we can be.
