Arm Candy: How to Stack Your Bracelets
Bracelets, baubles and bangles are all the rage right now, and a stacked wrist is the ultimate cool-girl way to accessorize. Stack up your arm candy by layering different bracelets and bangles together for a mix & match look that’s all your own. Here’s how to do it:
Keep in mind the following when choosing your stacking bracelets combo:
1.) Unexpected style + similar color = Feminine yet edgy bracelet combo
My friend Jenny’s light pink leopard print dress is feminine, with a one shoulder ruffle and short hemline. She paired it with equally feminine heels. But Jenny is a little bit rock ‘n’ roll, so she expressed her inner rocker chick with some edgy bracelets in the same color combo as her dress. She kept it feminine with the Rhea Bangles in rose gold, but she added an unexpected edge with the dark Hematite Cupchain Bracelet and the rose gold Copper Chain Bracelet, all from Stella & Dot. The combo really pulls together the feminine fluidity of the dress and the edgy leopard vibe. What do you think? (Her ring is the funky, rose gold Sidewinder Ring from Stella & Dot. Don’t you love it?)
2.) Mixed metals + texture = Edgy, boho stacked wrist
This is one of my favorite combos. I took this picture on my way to a Young The Giant concert, so I had to pull in my inner rocker goddess. I paired my own thin gold bangles with the Artemis Cuff, the Revival Bracelet and the Prosper Bracelet from Stella & Dot. The different textures (studs, wood, sparkles, delicate gold) makes this look unique and all my own. And the mix & match of the metals pulls it all together.
3.) Same metals + different sizes + fun colors = Glam, colorful arm candy
This stacked look screams summer. I can just see myself jingling these bracelets as I walk along the beach in a flowy maxi dress or short summer shorts. The key to this look is sticking with the same metal palette and mixing in fun colors (here we have coral, turquoise and bright white). Add an unexpected larger bangle for some sass and you’ll be good to go. This look includes the Carrie Bangles, two pairs of the gold Devi Bangles, and the Paige Enamel Bangle, all from Stella & Dot.
4.) Same metals + similar size + same style = A bold statement on your wrist
I especially love this pic from Stylist Jennifer Storey because she incorporates her own watch in the mix. This is a great way to show how to stack bracelets with an existing watch in your jewelry wardrobe. She is wearing her own gold Fossil watch with the gold Renegade Bracelet, Luxor Bracelet and gold Bardot Sprial Bangle, all from Stella & Dot jewelry.
