The trend for bracelets and bangles this year is stacking. No matter what your preference is in jewelry, stacking bracelets has become a fabulous trend. This year, while the recession remains at a stand still, is the year to stock up on small (less costly) bracelets. Chunky bracelets are still fun and you will still find them; however, the thinner smaller bracelets are on the rise.
This photo shows a combination of leather and silver. Pairing together different texture combinations adds depth. Stacked bracelets can be worn with casual clothes, or you can dress them up. Leather and chain bracelets are big for 2011/2012. Wrap around leather bracelets are the big hit this year. The more bangles you stack on one arm, the more glamorous you become. There are so many styles and colors to choose from, you could have a different look each day.
Before you run out shopping, visit your jewelry box and pair together a few bangles and bracelets that you already have. You can pair a silver chain with just about anything to dress up your look. If you do not have a leather bracelet, perhaps you have a wooden one. It’s cost effective to turn what is old into what is new, so stacking bracelets is a thrifty way to stay in style.
