I’ve never been the biggest jewelry fanatic but there is one piece I make an exception for… the bracelet. Why? Unlike say, a necklace, a bracelet doesn’t necessarily take over an outfit – it simply enhances it. For a simple dresser like me, a pile of bangles add just enough casual glamour and bling to a basic tee and jeans. Plus, a stack of bracelets looks just plain cool.
The problem is it can get pricey attempting to purchase five or six coordinating pieces of high quality jewelry. And in the past the fakes looked – well, fake. Not anymore! With chic and on-trend costume jewelry brands like Baublebar and Shashi, you can stack like a pro and still have enough dough left over to actually buy a cute dress to go along with your new trinkets. There are no real “rules” to combining your bracelets – just try to keep them similarly colored and shaped, and you’re good to go!
