THE ART OF STACKING BRACELETS
1. TAKE IT SHOW
2. CHOOSE A BRACELET THEME
The first step in creating the perfect bracelet stack is to choose a style. Do you want all gold? All silver? A mix of metals? A mix of textures? Once you've decided on a style, it's time to start picking out individual bracelets.
3. PLAY AROUND WITH BRACELET ORDER
The order of your stacked bracelets has a massive impact on the overall look. Play around with your bracelets and bangles because deciding on the order requires a little bit of experimentation.
One way to determine the right order for your stacked bracelets is to lay out your bracelets on your dresser or table. Do the bracelets look good side by side? If not, move them around to try different arrangements.
A good rule of thumb is spacing out bracelet sizes and styles, particularly larger pieces. Often, placing two large bracelets next to each other looks clunky and unbalanced. Instead, if you choose two large bracelets for your stack, place a few thinner bracelets between them to create greater balance and interesting contrast.
4. CHOOSE A COLOR SCHEME
5. MIX METALS & TEXTURES
6. USE AN ACCENT COLOR
One of the easiest ways to add visual interest to your bracelet stack is by using an accent color. Find a bracelet that has one or two colors that stand out from the rest of your bracelets, and wear it in the middle of your stack. This will help to break up any monotony and add a touch of fun and personality to your look.
7. ODD NUMBERS ARE BEST
Whether you’re opting for three bracelets or seven, always make sure your stack is an odd number. It’s just more visually interesting that way.
8. STACK BY BRACELET WEIGHT
The key is to layer bracelets in the order of their weight (heaviest on the bottom). This way, your arm won't feel weighed down, and you'll be able to enjoy your stack all day long! Plus, it just looks nicer when the weight isn't lopsided.
9. STACK BY BRACELET SIZE
If you have a mix of bracelet sizes, it's best to stack them by size, from largest to smallest. This creates a more streamlined look that is balanced and cohesive. If you're going for a more eclectic look, then you can mix up the order of the bracelets, but always make sure that the largest ones are closer to your wrist.
10. MIX IN DIFFERENT SHAPES
11. GIVE YOUR WRISTS A BREAK
We get it; you're a jewelry aficionado. You love to mix and match different pieces to create unique looks that show off your personal style. But sometimes, less is more. If your wrists are looking a little overloaded, it might be time to give them a break.
12. DOCUMENT YOUR STACKS
Find a bracelet stacking arrangement you would like and want to reuse. Instead of reinventing the wheel every time you stack, document it. For example, if you like a look, snap a photo of the bracelets on your wrist to remember the bracelet sequence. Then, refer to the pictures whenever you need a quick bracelet stack to complement your OOTD.
