The Art of Stacking Bracelets
Once you’ve gathered a collection of various bracelets from simple, subtle golden ones to fringy, colorful statement bracelets, it’s time to learn the art of stacking them and creating interesting looks!
We know, it looks all confusing at first: determining what is enough and what is too much, which pieces, shapes and colors go together and what to wear them with sounds too much at first, but just like stacking rings or layering necklaces, it can be super easy with a quick few tricks and tips.
Our Quick Guide
Choose The Statement Bracelets
First and foremost, try to choose one or two bracelets that will be the center piece(s). They don’t have to be very over the top or colorful, but make sure they add a bit of a twist (instead of only stacking very similar, subtle bracelets on top of each other).
Different shapes and colors can go really well with each other in this trend. Since it’s a very bohemian and playful look, adding various shades and shapes to the mix is always a good idea. If you would like to have a bit crazy and fun look, try out mixing neon bracelets (green, bright peach, pink and royal blue), and for a more elegant effect, stick with pastels, white, black or marble pattern bracelets. If you’d only like to add two colors besides gold and silver, our favorite color combinations at the moment are turquoise and red, peach and teal and green and royal blue – these colors are just perfect for the summer time as well!
The Matching Outfit
To make it work, choose an outfit and other accessories that will match the stacked bracelet idea. Any boho chic outfit will look stunning with stacked bracelets as long as there is minimal color coordination (but try to avoid making everything too matchy-matchy). Since the whole concept is having fun with your accessories, don’t be afraid to make it “messy” and choose similarly bohemian clothing items such as kimonos, dungarees, floral dresses and rompers. On the other hand, for special occasions, mix this trend with a long sleeve, mesh dress or a velvet jumpsuit.
Stick to Your Own Style
Don’t forget to add your own flare to the bracelets: if there is a color or pattern combination that you love or a shape (such as stars or moons), make sure to include that in the mix!
Don’t Go Overboard
Try to stick with 4-5 bracelets instead of adding too much to the mix, especially if you have one or two thicker statement bracelets and a few vibrant colors – you don’t want to display all your jewelry on your arms all at once.
