Bracelet stacking: Here’s how it’s done
If you want to combine lots of bracelets in a nonchalant look, there are a couple of ground rules you should follow when it comes to stacking. Here are our tips for stylish bracelet looks:
1. Keep it everyday appropriate
Even if it looks cool to wear bracelets up to the middle of your forearm, the jewellery should also work with your everyday life, as well as with the specific occasion you are wearing it for. If you spend most of your time working on the computer, well-fitting bracelets made of precious metal or leather are better than a stack of beaded bracelets which could become irritating or start pinching at your wrist.
2. Select a theme
If you’re wearing lots of bracelets together, put some thought into how they look together. Choose a style and stick to it when combining your bracelets. They should only vary either in their material, width or colour.
3. Create a balance
The golden rule: When stacking your bracelets, ensure that the number and widths of the bracelets is in balance, without being completely identical. To do so, play with bracelets in different widths and try to create a balance between the materials on both wrists. A fine silver bracelet combined with beads and a leather bracelet on one wrist work well with a thin leather bracelet and a bracelet made from precious stones, wood or stone on the other. Try it and, if in doubt, test out wearing fewer pieces at first until you find the perfect balance.
