In the warmer temperatures of the summer months we have to peel off the layers that we’ve grown so used to throughout the year. Off comes the merino wool sweater, hang up the woollen overcoat and don’t even attempt the woollen trousers; now’s a time for linen shirts, plain white T-shirts and lightweight trousers. As we wear fewer garments, we have to figure out new ways to elevate our outfits, to set our ensembles apart from the crowd. Patterns may spring to mind, but they’re an obvious solution and have to be treated with care so as not to completely dominate a look. We prefer to focus on accessorising, and the easiest way to get started is with men's designer jewellery.

Here are a few of our favourite pieces at OPUMO right now – we think we've picked jewellery for all styles and all budgets.
