Today, Refinery29 showcased their favorite fashionistas’ obsessions with arm candy. In general, I love the mixing and matching of bracelets, watches, and other arm-y things. I think it creates an edgy, fun look that can punch up any ensemble. And while I wouldn’t advise my clients to go all out with bling up to their elbows, there are some great ways to make this trend your own.
–Try mixing metals. I’ve mentioned this before as a way to amp up your jewelry look. It can be as simple as wearing a gold bangle with your silver watch.
–Pair different materials, like a fabric bracelet with metal, or wood cuff with a gold watch.
–Try a bunch on one arm, and a single on the other. This creates a cool, off-balance, not-too-heavy vibe.
And I must point out the above dinosaur bones bracelet from Noir as one of my new favorites. It was featured on Gwen Stefani on the cover of Elle UK back in May. This is definitely on my wish list for fall, even though it’s sold out (minor detail). I’ll bet there’s a cheap knock-off somewhere in Chinatown with my name on it.
