We’ve all seen the streams of photos on pinterest & instragram of girls showing off their epic bracelet layerings and what can we say? It truly is an art form! Below is a handy dandy guide from our lovely Jaclyn Johnson from Some Notes On Napkins on how to create a super fun arm party of your own! There are a few key components to getting a complimentary combo of metal, color + swagger on your wrist:
- Start with the metals. Stick with gold or silver. Choose a chunky piece and then a more dainty piece. (I like the ratio of 1 thick metal piece for every 2 or 3 thinner metal pieces.)
- Add some color. Give the party a pop! I really like the elastic bracelets with gold coverings for a more elegant look and the more fabric-y colorful bracelets for a daytime look. As far as color schemes, go for a more bold look with neons or mix and match with earth tones, mustards + pinks!
- Throw in a watch. Make sure to match your metals! Add in a retro gold watch for a glam look or throw on your every day leather watch band for additional texture.
- Personal flare. Throw in a piece with your name or a saying your love for some extra personalization! If you are a glam girl, add some diamonds or rhinestones. A little punk rock? Let’s see those spikes! Can’t get enough of the navajo trend? Add some printed pieces!
The best part of the party is making it your own!
