Bare Arms call for all different styles of bracelets
Summer is the time for sleeveless dresses, T-shirts and tank tops, which means it’s also the perfect season for bracelets. And, this is definitely a season filled with options to wear alone or pile on.
It’s important to remember that you don’t want to be weighed down with anything too cumbersome in the heat. My advice is to save the armfuls of heavy metal for when the weather gets cooler and you can roll up your sleeves of a leather or denim jacket or light cashmere sweater. For the warm weather, go ahead and stack, but try and find styles that are comfortable, mixing in airier open work bracelets with the more solid looks.
We’ve also heard a lot about Wonder Woman cuffs ever since the new film hit movie theaters. Although we agree that bold cuffs, one on each wrist, whether matching or two different complimentary styles are chic, powerful statements, try to find those that are wide but still lighter in weight for summer.
When mixing no real rules apply. The best combinations are those that might include a bangle or two, a medium width or thin cuff, a decorative link or a not-s0-basic curb chain and a colored gemstone style. Additionally, mixed metals offer a current vibe to any type of layering.
If you want to wear bracelets on the same wrist as your watch, the softer flexible looks, cuffs that fit tightly, a charm bracelet that hangs lower than your timepiece or any style that won’t roll around and scratch the crystal will work best.
Here are some options we’ve chosen to wear separately, mix and mismatch:
Flexible and Link Chain Looks
Colored Gemstone Styles
