Share these styling tips with your male customers when they shop for fashion jewelry.
According to Cambridge Dictionary, smart casual clothing is neat, stylish, and slightly formal. It’s an accepted way of dressing up for a certain social occasion, situation, or place. When it comes to men’s fashion, a smart casual look is usually characterized by a blazer or jacket, a dress shirt, jeans, and the optional necktie.
Generally, there are, what they call, smart casual look essentials. These include, but are not limited to these wardrobe pieces:
- Blazers or jackets
- Denim jeans
- Business casual shoes (loafers, derbies, or Oxfords)
- Jewelry and accessories
Jewelry pieces are essential because they complement business casual clothing and accentuate body parts. And as a jewelry business, you should also be knowledgeable about styling tips, especially for customers who may find it challenging to look for a particular piece to wear for a smart casual look.
So aside from investing in in-trend wholesale fashion jewelry for men this season, make sure to help your customers and share some knowledge on some styling tips. Here are five ways to style a smart casual look for men using the right accessories:
- Wear a maximum of two rings.
- Go for a simple necklace.
- No need to wear a bracelet if wearing a watch.
- Avoid wearing cuff links.
- Wear a pair of dark sunglasses when outdoors.
#1 Wear a maximum of two rings.
Wearing multiple rings looks cool, but not with business casual attire. The rule here is to be minimal with jewelry accessories. For married men, the wedding band on one hand and a fashion ring on the other are perfect. As for single men, they can wear up to two fashion rings with minimal style.
Here are some great designs from our collection of wholesale fashion rings for a smart casual look:
CJ283 Stainless Steel Sea Blue and Clear Top-Grade Crystal Ring
This stainless steel fashion ring for men features a geometric design characterized by a flat rectangular top. It is studded with rows of tiny round, clear top-grade crystals, and the main attraction is the square sea-blue crystal center stone. This piece is ideal for matching business casual clothing in the same color.
- Available sizes: 8 to 12
- Wholesale price: $7.22 USD
CJE3615 Stainless Steel Synthetic Onyx and Clear Crystal Ring
This men’s fashion ring is made from stainless steel with the same minimalist geometric style as the previous piece. However, this has bigger clear crystal accents on both sides, sandwiching the jet-black Onxy-colored stone. It has a more formal vibe to it, so it’s best for matching wardrobe pieces that look too casual and those in the same color.

#2 Go for a simple necklace.
Large, chunky chains may look stylish, but not if you want to achieve a business casual look. A simple pendant necklace with a minimalist design is the perfect choice. It will not draw attention away from the smart-looking blazer or your sleek hairstyle.
This piece is an excellent example of a necklace that is perfect for matching business casual wardrobe pieces:
CJG2289 Stainless Steel Siam Red Top-Grade Crystal Lion Pendant Necklace
This gender-neutral neck accessory features a thin stainless steel chain and a side-faced lion with a Siam red top-grade crystal eye in a defensive stance. Lions symbolize strength, courage, and leadership, perfect for those needing a personality boost in the workplace. The pendant has a face height of 41 mm, and the whole piece measures 32 inches.
- Wholesale price: $5.42 USD
#3 No need to wear a bracelet if wearing a watch.
Wearing a bracelet and a watch would be overdoing it, so as much as possible, avoid wearing one. A wristwatch is stylish enough and smart-looking. Bracelets are perfect for a much more casual look, but if you really want to wear one, pick a piece with a minimalist style, preferably not on the same wrist as the watch.
#4 Avoid wearing cuff links.
Cuff links come off as too formal, so it’s best to avoid wearing them. Cufflinks are always best with formal dress shirts, so save them for black-tie events and the like.
#5 Wear a pair of dark sunglasses when outdoors.
Finally, a pair of dark sunglasses will top the smart casual look. Of course, a pair should only be worn when outdoors. Dark sunglasses give the wearer a mysterious, serious vibe. Avoid getting those with mirror lenses and frames with bright colors, as they are too casual for this style.
