Like a lady’s purse, a woman’s wrist can tell you her style story in an instant. One can assume that an arm dripping in studded bangles and fringed wristlets belongs to a girl who likes to live on the edge, while a wrist daintily adorned with a sleek watch and a thin crystal band is someone who prefers to keep things simple. No matter what your wristwear says about you, putting it all together isn’t exactly easy. Some might say it’s an art…
Ever since I was in high school, I have always loved to pile my wrists with my favorite jewels and flea market finds. From golden dipped bangles to crystal-encrusted cuffs, I love it all. Mixing and matching them together came to me quite easily so I’ve decided to share a few of my best pointers on how to mix up a winning combination below…
Classic. Opt for clean lines and geometric shapes. Don’t be afraid to mix metals for a touch of surprise. Personally, I think this is a nice look for the office since it isn’t too distracting.
Feminine. The more sparkle, the better! Here’s what I suggest: Pair two of your favorite statement pieces together. Then add in a third piece that’s a bit more dainty and understated to keep the look grounded.
Edgy. Think studs, chains, and more studs! Mixed metals have a very subversive vibe, so mix away and don’t be afraid to add in a few leather pieces to tone it all down.
Mixed Up. If you are an eclectic gal, mix them all up! I love to do this for more casual outings. Just be sure to pile on pieces with different widths and textures.
Which style is your favorite? I can’t decide!
