Let’s forget about accessory fads like embroidered straw hats and fidget spinners for now. (Do fidget spinners count as accessories? For the sake of this post, they do.)
It’s time to return to the basics: bracelets. Fashion jewelry bracelets are a quick way to add flair to your wardrobe. Discover how to wear bracelets in your day-to-day now.
Whether the last thing you wore on your wrist was a slap bracelet or you’re looking to breathe new life into your fashion jewelry collection, our 7 tips are here to help.
1) always think about comfort
When shopping for a new piece or rummaging through your jewelry drawer, make sure that you’re only choosing bracelets that are comfortable to wear.
Does the bracelet slip off? Is it too tight? Does it pinch your wrist? Does it make it hard to type? We all have a piece that we absolutely adore—except for that one little thing.
Even if you love every other aspect about the bracelet, make sure you can stand wearing it for hours on end. If not, it’s time to move on.
2) metallic is a neutral
You can pair metals like rose gold, copper, gold, and silver with almost any outfit.
Trust us and try the gold-tone Jessica Simpson Metal Connection Bangles on for size.
3) try stacked bracelets
Whether you pair a few pieces or you go for a dramatic look, here are a few guidelines to follow.
Look for balance in color, shape, and thickness. Try book-ending the look with bracelets of similar widths to achieve this.
Mix and match. Experiment with complementary colors, a mix of materials, and various metals.
4) balance your wrists
If you have one (or a few!) bracelets on one wrist, try wearing a watch on the other. Who said you can’t tell the time and show off your style?
Of course, you could try incorporating your watch in the stacked bracelet look.
5) coordinate with sleeve length
Sleeveless tops and t-shirts pair best with a stacked bracelet look. That way, your arms don’t look too heavy.
Rolled-up shirt sleeves or ¾-length sleeves work well with a single statement bracelet.
6) choose the right bracelets for work
Don’t go for noisy bangles or anything that would get in the way of typing on a keyboard. Your accessories shouldn’t annoy you or your coworkers!
Try a simple piece with a thinner width instead. The Hannah Round Disc Slip-On Bracelet is a good candidate.
7) make sure you can wear a piece to more than one occasion
The bracelets in your collection that will get the most mileage are the ones you can wear to work, on the weekend, and to a wedding.
Aim to have one bracelet in your drawer that you can always go to. The Hannah Gold-Tone Multicolor Floral Stretch Bracelet is a great go-to.
