7 Bracelets Worth an Invite to Your Arm Party
Achieving the perfect mix of accessories is tough, especially with bracelets. In recent years, arm parties have been all the rage thanks to fashion bloggers like Aimee of Song of Style and Julie of Sincerely, Jules. It’s honestly rather fun to pile up an array of your favorite bangles and cuffs to create a set that’s all your own! Check out our picks for the seven bracelet styles worth an invitation to your arm party!
Chain Link Bracelet
Start your stack with a classic chain link bracelet; it will never go out of style, and you can find these bracelets in both wide links and narrow links (for you petite gals). Add a twist with a two-tone metal version. We love these: 1. Judith Ripka, 2. Eddie Borgo, 3.Michael Kors and 4. Sam Edelman
The wrap-around bracelet is a great everyday option and one that can be worn to add a pop of color to your stack! The key with this style is to have fun; one can never have too many color options! Our picks: 1. Chan Luu, 2. Jules Smith, 3. Rosantica and 4. Lucky Brand
The most popular bracelet style of all is the open-ended bangle. Featuring colorful stones or geometric shapes, this fashion-blogger favorite is trendy without being tacky. It is also the most stack-friendly bracelet and can be paired with all the other options! Check out these picks: 1. Pamela Love, 2. Jules Smith, 3. Freida Rothman and 4. Marc by Marc Jacobs.
If you feel daring, add a bangle stack to your arm party to create a wider bunch. These usually come in sets of five or more bangles that can be mixed and matched. We suggest getting a set in a neutral palette including golds, bronzes and blacks. A few of our faves: 1. Target, 2. Mixit, 3. Ashley Cooper and 4. Kenneth Cole
The statement cuff adds the right amount of bling for nighttime. Go bedazzled with a crystal motif or add a feisty animal print. Make sure to also wear this piece on its own; after all, it does make a statement! Our picks for statement cuffs: 1. Guess, 2. Monique Pean, 3. Sabine and 4. Deepa Gurnani
Popular among the bohemian crowd is the hand chain, a bracelet-and-ring set attached by a single center chain. This particular style is great for summer music festivals and seaside vacations. Check out a few of our favorite styles: 1. Forever 21, 2. Rejoice the Hands, 3. Natalie B and 4. Urban Outfitters,
We’ll end this list with a fine jewelry piece, whether it’s a link chain or a bangle. Investing in one authentic gold or silver piece will enhance your arm party and make it look lavish. Here are a few choice splurge pieces: 1. Ileana Makri, 2. Irene Neuwirth, 3. Jennifer Meyer and 4. Hoorsenbuhs
