Ryan Reynolds accessorized with sentimental jewelry for his “Jimmy Kimmel Live” appearance on Aug. 9. The “Deadpool” actor proudly wore beaded bracelets made by his daughters as he and guest host Rob McElhenney discussed Wrexham AFC, the Welsh soccer team they own together. He piled on several handmade creations with his Apple Watch: one with sparkly green and clear beads that spell out “DAD,” one with pink smiley-face beads, and one with a rainbow assortment. The colorful stack popped against his outfit, consisting of otherwise muted tones in the form of a gray suit, white button-down, and black tie.
Reynolds has been spotted wearing the same bracelets for several other outings this summer, including Wrexham soccer games, a Cannes Lions event, and the premiere of Taylor Swift‘s “All Too Well: The Short Film.” Beyond being a sweet way to keep his kids close amid a busy schedule, Reynolds’s accessories also play into the “kidcore” fashion aesthetic, characterized by bold colors, fun prints, and nostalgic jewelry.
Reynolds shares three daughters with wife Blake Lively — 7-year-old James, 5-year-old Inez, and 2-year-old Betty — and the beaded bracelets are likely the result of an afternoon DIY project at home. Perhaps they made one for Lively that reads “MOM” to match?
Seeing as Reynolds’s wardrobe mostly consists of neutrals (think: navy jackets, gray pinstripe suits, and white tees), the pop of color from his bracelets is a welcome style switch-up for the star, whether he’s on or off duty.
