The accessory trend du jour, stacking assorted bracelets to yield a bohemian, jet-set worldliness, has quickly saturated men’s style, so much so that the mix of nautical rope, jaunty bungee cords, and leather bands is ubiquitous on street-style blogs. Timepieces have adapted to this casual movement, with watchstraps favoring more natural materials -- elemental metallics, exotic skins, and other organic components -- in lieu of more traditional or blingy alternatives. Layer them with your existing collection of wristlets to add a utilitarian slant to the cosmopolitan statement. One thing’s for certain: Your look will definitely be of the moment.
