Who Can Wear Cuban Link Chains?

Cuban link chain jewelry is taking the world by storm, and for good reason.

Who Can Wear Cuban Link Chains?

This versatile and dazzlingly elegant jewelry looks great on both men and women. Plus, it’s appropriate for many different social occasions and outfit ensembles.

But who exactly can wear Cuban link chains, and how can you know what type of link chain jewelry is right for you? Let’s explore the answers to these questions and more in detail.

Cuban Link Chains Explained

In a nutshell, Cuban link chains – which are used in necklaces and bracelets for jewelry – are comprised of single-color, oval-shaped chain links woven together into a ring or band. Cuban link chains are especially popular among men, partially because many popular hip-hop artists have worn these jewelry items and demonstrated their practical and aesthetic appeal.

Indeed, Cuban link chains are among the most popular jewelry options for men overall. They are versatile – you can wear them with practically any other clothing article or in any social situation – and they are customizable since you can add a pendant to your chain necklace or bracelet whenever you like.

Who Can Wear Them?

But who can really wear Cuban link chains to their maximum effect? Anyone!

That’s right; you too can wear Cuban link chains if you desire. But if you really want to maximize its aesthetic appeal or how it elevates your style, you’ll want to choose the right Cuban link for your needs and your thematic preferences.

Fortunately, there are lots of things you can consider when choosing Cuban link necklaces or bracelets to upgrade your wardrobe.

Metal Colors

First and foremost, consider the metal colors used for your chosen Cuban link jewelry. Cuban link jewelry is available in many different materials and colors, like platinum, pure silver, gold, rose gold, and even bronze.

Generally, you should choose a metal color that looks good with your skin tone. Folks with warmer skin tones will benefit more from rose gold or bronze colors, whereas folks with cooler skin tones might be better off with platinum or silver Cuban link jewelry.

The metal color you choose will also influence how well different necklaces and bracelets go with your clothing. Stick with a color you really like and wear your jewelry with clothes in colors that complement your necklace or bracelet.

Sizes and Thicknesses

Next, consider the size and thickness you want your Cuban link jewelry to be. Thicker sizes of necklaces and bracelets generally look better on bigger guys; that way, your body “fills out” the space of the necklace or bracelet in question. If you are on the slimmer side, try to go with thinner or slimmer necklaces and bracelets so they don’t overwhelm your body or make you look smaller.

Remember, Cuban link jewelry is available in many different thicknesses and sizes. This is one of the reasons why men love this jewelry style. They can wear a thick necklace and feel masculine while simultaneously enhancing their aesthetic appeal.

Pendant or Plain?

Then ask yourself whether you want your Cuban link chains to carry a pendant or not. Pendants make your chains a little “busier”, which may or may not go with your overall style. For instance, if your style is minimalist or plain, a plain chain might be better unless you want to highlight the pendant in question.

On the flip side, if you have a busy or complex outfit, a Cuban link chain necklace with a dazzling pendant could complete the entire set. Wear your Cuban chain successfully by choosing a pendant that fits the social occasion at hand (and that isn’t too sparkly or flashy, which goes against the Cuban link style).

When to Wear Cuban Link Chains

As touched on above, Cuban link chains can be worn almost anywhere. While you may not want to wear them to a wedding (depending on how formal the occasion is), you can wear Cuban link chains on or to:

● First or successive dates with a significant other

● Social gatherings or get-togethers with your friends

● College classes

● Seminars

● Parties

● When out and about

● And more

Generally, you should wear Cuban link chains whenever you want to add a little flair and elegance to your style. For example, you can wear a Cuban link chain necklace if your outfit is relatively plain and boring, like a T-shirt and shorts, to get a little extra “oomph” and look great while hanging out.

The more you wear your Cuban link jewelry, the better sense you'll get for when you should wear it for maximum effect!

Wrap Up

As you can see, anyone can wear Cuban link chains no matter their sex, style, or age. However, you’ll do your outfit and aesthetic credit if you consider the type of Cuban link chain you purchase and wear before heading out. Check out 6 Ice’s Cuban link chain options today!

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register.

Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
