Necklaces for men are just one of the many accessories banned in Iran's latest crackdown on western style (nail polish and "glamorous" hairstyles also got the cut) that was announced today. While we don't always approve of how they are worn (The Situation- we are looking at you), some men rock the trend beautifully (does Johnny Depp ever get it wrong?). Because we here at StyleList are on the fence when it comes to men and necklaces, we asked some fashion experts their opinions. So how do you feel about the Iran ban? Yes or no for all men all over the globe.
"Personally, not my thing but on the right guy, it can be sexy."
-Joe Zee: Creative Director, ELLE Magazine
"I think if guys wear necklaces they have to look and feel completely comfortable wearing them. I'm a total fan of guys in chains but my favorite way is when they wear a medium length chain and pendant and it gets tucked inside their t-shirt."
-Dana Lorenz: Jewelry Designer and Owner, Fenton/Fallon
"We love a cool chain with a tee shirt or sweater. Keep the scale small and it will add a big dose of personal style to your look. Best to put the corded rope and pooka shells away after you turn 21."
-Brian Coats: Senior Fashion and Market Editor, GQ
"Jewelry can carry significant meaning beyond that of a fashion statement, be it religious or sentimental, and I think all people should have the ability to adorn themselves in any way they please."
-Chantal Chadwick: Co-Owner of Lower East Side boutique "End of Century"
"For me it's a like really personal thing. I grew up really Catholic wearing a medallion of my grandfather's and now I am a jewelry designer. I try to make things that are meant to be very personal like a ring on a chain. I wear a signet ring on a chain that a friend gave me."
-Philip Crangi: Jewelry Designer and Co-Owner, Giles & Brother
"I ADORE men wearing any kind of bijoux!"
-Mickey Boardman: Editorial Director, Paper Magazine
Need motivation to hit the gym before swim season? Take a look at this gallery of sizzling-hot stars (all over 40!) caught beach-side in their bikinis.
Now, while we're not ones for gratuitous bare-skin gazing, who doesn't like to do a little compare-and-contrast ever so often? Sure, some of the celebrities in these photos are basically paid to look good and some drop mega-bucks on personal trainers, nutritionists and maybe even a cosmetic procedure here or there. But not all of them. No, not all of them.
Not every body in our gallery is "perfect", as in Victoria's-Secret-model-photo-shopped perfect, yet each one looks amazing. We love Stephanie Seymour's bodacious curves and Julianne Moore's well-cared-for, creamy-pale skin (no orange-tinted spray tan for her!) Point is, while these women certainly take good care of themselves, they also clearly know how to play up their unique natural beauty.
So we hope these photos inspire you not just to get your workout on and get fitter, but also to embrace your own natural beauty and rock your bikini body with all you've got.
Who Wore It Best?
Rihanna and Diane Kruger both rocked this fierce swimsuit. But who nailed the look? Click to see more celebrities with like-minded fashion sense.

It looks like actress-model Diane
Kruger was wearing We Are Handsome's feline-print Amazon scoop-back swimsuit ($275, available at Barneys Beverly Hills), which was originally spotted Dec. 26 on Rihanna while she soaked up the sun in her home country of Barbados. The musical diva chose to cover up with a gray cardigan and accessorize with a jungle-print headscarf and sunglasses as she splashed in the water and strolled along the sand.
Meanwhile, 34-year-old Kruger -- who is more than a decade older than Riri -- added a menswear-inspired straw hat and gold chain necklaces while lounging poolside with her beau.
So we gotta ask: Is the fierce one-piece suited for the younger set (à la Riri) or can a woman in her 30s pull off the look?
