Arm Candy Do’s and Don’ts

All of girls know that in terms of accessories, arm candy has been all the rage lately. Everywhere you look, the most fashionable girls are rocking stacks of bracelets that add a sophisticated and fun touch to any outfit. While it can be tempting to pile on all of your bracelets to replicate the popular images of arm candy that we see all over social media today, it’s best to take a few precautions when choosing which pieces to include.

Do’s

    1. The first tip for stacking bracelets is to make sure that there is a theme that brings together all of the pieces you will be wearing. It doesn’t mean that all of your bracelets have to match. Try looking for pieces with a similar color scheme, motif, or design to make sure that they look put together.

  1. Choose one piece that you want to center the rest of your bracelets around. Make sure that this one piece stands out from the rest. It will make it much easier to decide which pieces you want to wear that day and what you want to save for another time. A statement watch is a great piece to choose as your main focus. Michael Kors makes some really gorgeous watches that make for great arm candy but if you’re looking for a more economical alternative then Forever 21 and BP are great places to check out. Their watches are similar in design but much easier on the wallet!

Don’ts

    1. Don’t stack pieces onto both arms. Because you’re going to be wearing a lot of jewelry it’s best to streamline the look and it keep it one arm rather than both. It will save you the risk of looking overdone and it will make it easier for you to choose a few pieces that you really want to wear.

  1. When choosing the pieces for your arm candy make sure you only choose one large piece and keep the rest of the pieces dainty and minimal. By putting on more than one large bauble you’ll take the attention away from the pieces as a whole. Remember, arm candy should flow together like one large bracelet; it shouldn’t be a mixture of pieces you just happened to pile on.

With these tricks you’ll be rocking magazine worthy arm candy in no time!

    I’m definitely on the arm candy team, since necklaces bother my skin, but I’m not one for a lot of sparkle. I like thick watch straps and bracelets, and lean toward leather, blackened silver and subtle colours. My favourite bracelet is made of brown leather and gray pearls, and wraps five times around my wrist so the effect is like that of a cuff. I usually wear it on my left hand with my wedding rings, and one big ring with a smooth round reddish-brown stone on the other hand. Some days I’ll wear my watch, which is a wide leather cuff to which the watch face attaches with little straps. If I wear the watch (on my left), I wear a similar size bracelet on the right.

    I love arm candy. I like bracelets and big rings and fun fingernail polish.

    My arm candy look is always stacking extra bracelets in a variety of textures with my watch. Now I’ll try something new. I love your idea of mixing a variety of items. I’m going to try this!

    I’m just learning how to, and I’m loving it!

    I used to be a statement earring girl with my short hair. Now I find that I wear those only rarely for evening events (and not always then, either). Instead I wear tiny plain silver or gold studs just to fill the holes, and I am starting to enjoy bracelets. I never liked them in the past because the styles were “clattery.” But now I have found cuffs and snugger styles that work, and I find I’m really enjoying them! I like a minimalist version of the look.

    I’ve always loved bracelets since I was a little girl stacking my grandmother’s plastic ones up both arms. I have my bucket of bracelets from her that I don’t wear since I grew up, but must keep for sentimental reasons.

    Every day I must have a watch (black strap, white rectangular face, or black Swatch in winter, Lilly or summer print Swatch in summer), my wedding rings, and my white gold ring on my right hand. Sometimes I’ll add my charm bracelet or pearl bracelet to that, sometimes a group of silvertone or faux tortoiseshell bracelets depending on what I’m wearing. I have some colored bracelets for summer but tend to stick to metal tones or pearls in winter.

    The Alex & Ani bracelets are super popular where I live, and I still see a lot of Pandora bracelets, but when I start to see the same style everywhere, it kind of turns me off, even if I originally liked them. Does this happen to you too?
