Unlike during the cold winter, in the summer we often find ourselves dressing lightly for comfort, rather than piling on heavy accessories like over-sized sweaters, scarves, and boots. The best way to stay fashionable in the hot summer without weighing yourself down is by having an arm party! That’s right—a party on your arm. Spice up your simple tee and shorts with flawlessly stacked bracelets. Here is an example of a perfect arm party:
The best way to plan out your arm party is to keep one key element in each piece—like gold, silver, or texture. Here are a few staple pieces I like to use in my own arm party. Like the example, this arm party uses the gold element and shows that different looks can be created with the same theme.
Pyramid stud bracelets are a must-have for this season and the only way to wear these bracelets better than on their own, is stacked with other similar bracelets. The two best ways to try this trend are with pave and with color.
Rent the Runway has a gorgeous Gold Pave Pyramid Stud Bracelet by CC Skye that steals the spotlight in this arm party. This bracelet is available in the beautiful gold color we are aiming for and has just the right amount of edge and sparkle.
A different approach is a colorful pyramid bracelet. Available in fuchsia, teal, and black, Forever 21’s Pyramid Stud Bracelet will add a pop of color to your bracelet stack and can also tie in with colors on your outfit. Since the pyramid studs are much smaller in this bracelet and the studs are simple and shiny, it won’t clash with the Gold Pave bracelet and will instead accent it.
Cords and ropes are also a big trend this summer. Adding glitz and glam to this makes it perfect for arm candy! Bracelets like this one from H&M are perfect for stacking when you are already incorporating other big pieces. Not only does it blend all the colors nicely, but it also provides extra flare. This bracelet is available in white, turquoise, and coral pink, so you can match it to a colorful outfit or keep it simple with white.
After so many sparkly pieces, it’s good to throw in a set of just-gold bangles. These slim bangles from J. Crew are a great finishing touch because they aren’t overpowering, and the rope texture goes perfectly with the sparkly cord bracelet.
And there you have it—a flawless arm party! By mix and matching different pieces with a key element, you can create a perfect stack of bracelets.
