My New Favorite Outfit: How To: Stack Bracelets

How To: Stack Bracelets

This week for my How-to series I'll be covering how to stack bracelets.  Last year everyone was "throwing an arm party," but I don't hear that term much anymore, that doesn't change the fact that I love to wear multiple bracelets at once.  Today I'll share with you some ways to stack your bracelets.
  • Mix your metals. My favorite bracelets to wear are the MoxieGilded ArrowRenegade, and the Chimera (which is retired). Adding in the Moxie is great to add some color and the different textures of the bracelets make this an interesting combo and my go-to for sure.
  • Make a statement with your bracelets.  Pick one of two gold or silver bracelets you love, then add a bold color that coordinates with your outfit to add to the combo.  I love the Triple Wrap and Peacock.  I wear a lot of those colors, so having them as statement pieces makes sense.  Look at the colors you like to wear most, then think about adding one or two bold bracelets of your own.
  • I also like to wear my silver Renegade and Urbane with my new watch too.  If the metals match, wearing bracelets on the same wrist as your watch can be really great.
  • Lastly, make sure to coordinate your bracelets with your necklace.  If you're wearing a gold necklace, it goes without saying that you should wear gold bracelets and vise-versa. 
  • If you're wearing a really bold necklace, keep your bracelets more basic and try not to wear both a bold statement necklace and a bold statement bracelet.
  • I know I've shown you all Stella and Dot pieces, I know they are more expensive, but I've had all over mine for nearly a year and they all look the same as the day I got them.  When you spend more on pieces they can tend to last longer.  Think about a few nicer pieces to invest in, no need to get them all at once!
Have you entered my giveaway yet?

I need some help from you all?  What how-to posts would you like to see next?  I want the ideas to come from what you ladies need and I want them to be applicable to you.  Hit me with your ideas!

  2. You are so good at stacking bracelets! I think maybe I don't have enough of a selection to really know what would work well together.

  7. You are great with bracelet stacking and mixing! I'm new to it and I've learned you really need the right pieces. I have some go-to bangles I pair together, and then some flexible or stretchy ones I can pair together. I love doing a bracelet with my watch too!

  8. This was a great and unique post. I would probably add that you can mix beaded with metallic ones, chains with pearl bracelets, cuffs with dainty bracelets, etc. Seriously anything goes when it comes to an Arm Party.

    As far as your next How-to, you can do a "How to layer with a Blazer". I personally use Blazers a lot and I think of knowing many different, versatile ways of layering or working a blazer into my closet. But it could be useful to a lot of others. Just a thought.

    Enjoy your Tuesday, Ginny!

  12. Yay for the arm party! It's always so pretty, but if I am at work, I just can't do it. It makes typing too hard. You look like a pro at it though!

    As far as how to posts, I always like to see how people tie scarves and also transitioning from winter into spring. Kind of taking a winter piece and bringing it into spring

  15. Another great post! I own several fun bracelets but am always afraid they will feel like too much if I also wear a statement necklace. These tips encourage me to try wearing more. Thanks for sharing!

  16. Lately I have been interested in scarves, especially infinity or long ones that can wrap around the neck but I would also like to explore shorter scarves like silk ones. Would like to know how to style and tie it.
