When it comes to awards season, there is so much buzz about whose gowns and jewelry celebrities will be wearing, but the majority of the talk centers around the ladies. In all fairness to the guys who are headed to the many incarnations of the red carpet, they may not have as much of a variety in the formal wear that they have to choose from, but there is a way to kick up their style with their designer suits by selecting some key jewelry pieces to polish off the look.
Celebrity Stylist Michael O’Connor, who can be found utilizing his extensive knowledge of jewelry and fashion to help celebrities select the perfect jewelry pieces for all of the red carpet events through the StyleLab Jewelry Lounge, is a proponent of men adding a little bling with accessories like lapel pins, cuff links, and watches to make them stand out in the crowd.
In this selection from StyleLab, there are colorful jeweled pieces like the bold blue cuff links, Art Deco pieces like the diamond encrusted rectangle lapel pin, or sleek two-tone gold watches from which to choose. You can even see Michael practicing what he preaches, wearing a whimsical grey pearl and diamond spider brooch, as he greets his celebrity clients in LA.
Taking a look at these men’s accessories on the red carpet scene, we have American actor Adrien Brody, who is sporting the Octo Watch by BVLGARI. It has a great geometric look with the octagonal-shaped watch casing in vibrant gold and matching number markers that jump out, in contrast to the black face. The croco-embossed black leather band just adds to its sexiness.
However, if you are more of a minimalist when it comes to jewelry accessories, then you may want to take a cue from Irish actor Colin Farrell, who in the past made a pair of simple white gold hoops the perfect edgy addition to his suit. Gotta keep that tie tightened up though, buddy!
