At one time, it wasn’t so desirable to wear more than one necklace or bracelet at a time, but oh how things have changed! Today, layering is a hot fashion trend. In fact, many people choose to layer many bracelets on their wrist. Bangles are especially popular, but you can mix and match just about any style. But how do you avoid looking like a small child who just threw on all of mom’s jewelry? Here are some tips to follow:

  • Choose different materials. Don’t stick to just one type of metal — in fact, you don’t need to stick with just metal. Mix bracelets made of leather, beads, ribbon, silver, and gold. The difference in textures will add visual interest to your outfit.
  • Vary the thicknesses. Try not to have all of your bracelets be the same width. Even a slight variance in thickness will create a sense of movement and look more exciting.
  • Have fun! One of the best things about layering is that there are not set rules to follow. Choose as many different bracelets as you like and rock your personal style!
