-- Following the stacking trends --
Styling bracelets according to your wrist size
There are two rules when it comes to wearing trendy bracelets according to your wrist size.
To achieve a proportional look you need to choose bracelets that match your wrist size. If you don’t want your wrists to look bigger or smaller, wear any type of trendy bracelets, but make sure they are the right size.
To achieve a smaller/larger look for your wrists, choose bracelets that have an opposite design to the effect you want to achieve. For example, you could wear a large chunky bracelet to make your wrist look larger and vice versa.
If you have very narrow and bony wrists and want to make them appear larger, stacked bracelets are very good for you. Other trendy bracelets are medium beads, medium cuffs and charm bracelets. Avoid wearing a single thin bangle because the contrast will make your wrists appear even narrower.
Styling Bracelets in Harmony with your Manicure
Many women make the mistake of not matching their trendy bracelets with the manicure type. This doesn’t mean that if you are wearing a red bracelet, your nails also need to be red. This is more about the style than the color of the manicure.
The first rule is that statement bracelets or chunky pieces require a neutral manicure. Your nails shouldn’t be too long, but for the color, you have all the freedom you want. You can wear statement or chunky pieces with medium-length or even short nails and it will look fabulous. On the other hand, with bangles you can have a vibrant manicure and long nails.
Another rule is that delicate or thin bracelets will look better with longer nails. As opposed to what happens when you match statement pieces with long nails, in this case, your nails will bring out the delicate piece on your wrist.
Last, but not least, consider the bracelet style when choosing a manicure. An elegant French manicure will not look so great with friendship style bracelets, while rock-punk nails will clash with a tennis bracelet. If your nails are elegant, make sure that your wrist reflects that elegance and vice versa.
Styling Bracelets According to your Outfit and Other Jewellery
You can add a delicate thin bracelet to any outfit and it can look gorgeous. But while thin bracelets are more versatile, chunky or statement pieces require extra attention. With this type of trendy bracelets, you can wear statement earrings but forget about chunky necklaces or rings.
For a contrasting look, combine chunky bracelets with chiffon, summer dresses or lace tops. If you want to achieve a professional, serious look, avoid big cuffs and charm bracelets and go for simple outfits with thin bangles or chain bracelets. To add an extra sparkle to your look and achieve an elegant ensemble, go for gemstone bracelets paired with precious studs and stylish gowns.
Simple chain bracelets seem to be the most versatile and approachable during any season, suitable to wear when going out or to a business meeting.
When styling your trendy bracelets you have to consider the metals and materials. Gold and gold plated bracelets are great for any skin tone and look fabulous with most of your outfits. Silver bracelets are perfect for a romantic date or a casual meeting.
A Trend to Follow: Stacking Bracelets
If you are a beginner, the best idea is to start simple. You can start with a couple of bracelets in different colors and widths. The common element here is the type of bracelet you use. If you’d rather wear chain bracelets, make this your common theme and make sure they have different colors or designs.
For example, a more sophisticated look that is easy to achieve is to incorporate designs of the same material, like jade. Wearing jade pendant bracelets with jade bangles can be an appropriate look.
After you get more comfortable with wearing stacked bracelets, you can try other styles as well. You can go for matching colors or textures and you can even try creative combinations. For example, you can try a leather bracelet with a colorful jade one and a woven bracelet with jade charms. The rule of the thumb is anything goes as long as you are feeling good about yourself.
