So many bracelets, so many occasions, only two wrists — what to do? Here is a guide to help you decide what bracelets to wear and when.
The right bracelet can dress up your look, and help you express your style. There are so many bracelet style options, and picking the right one can be daunting. Chains, bangles, charms, leather, cord, gemstones, cuffs and cultured pearls. What bracelets are appropriate when? Can you mix metals? What about stacking?
There are many things to consider when shopping for a bracelet, including when and where you’ll wear it, how you'll style it, and the activities you'll be doing. It’s important to have a wide range of bracelet styles in your jewelry wardrobe so you’ll be set for any eventuality.
For your traditional office job or if you are climbing your way up the career ladder, it’s important to you to look polished and put together Monday through Friday. Whether you wear suit and heels or business casual, you like your outfit to be fashionable and classic; your accessories need to look that way too.
For a conservative office look, keep your bracelets to a basic minimum — perhaps a single bangle or thin chain with a gemstone. Combining two bracelets of the same metal on one wrist can look nice if done subtly. If your office has a more casual environment, a refined stack of gemstones beaded bracelets can be a stylish addition to your work wardrobe. When choosing bracelets for work, consider your daily activities, such as using a keyboard or working with medical instruments. Pick a style that won’t get in the way, and that is also comfortable to wear during the activities or errands after work, such as; picking kids up from after-school, going to the gym, or taking a yoga class.
THE WEEKEND LOOK
Add a fun flair and loads of personality to whatever Saturday and Sunday have in store for you, whether it is taking kids to their weekend activities, doing food shopping, or brunching with the girls, let your style show and stack all your favorite bracelets together.
Keep a few things in mind: When creating a stack, vary the shapes and weights of the bracelets, but keep the metal color as cohesive as possible. Too much variety don't look classy. If you are just running around doing errands, bracelets can dress up a casual weekend look. If jeans are your go-to on weekends, a stack of bangles or a few chains on your wrist can take a look from blah to date-worthy.
When it comes to bracelets, it's important to have that one unique and transitional piece that you can dress up or down depending on the occasion.
