Bangles Are The New Black: The Guide To Stackable Bracelets
Coco Chanel famously advised women that "before leaving the house, a lady should look in the mirror and remove one accessory." We love you Coco, but here at LePrix, we have to disagree! Layering accessories, especially jewelry, has been a current trend that never goes out of style, similar to an all black ensemble, or your favorite LBD. So, when it comes to bangles -- the polished and ornate stackable bracelet -- we think stacking is a trend to stay!

Part of the trick is taking into consideration the various materials, shapes, textures, and colors, and that's where we come in! Check out a few of our tips on how to achieve the trendy, eclectic look.

Tackling this first step will help you be more creative when you decide to add a few supporting pieces to the mix. Beginning with an item to focus around will also prevent you from getting a little too crazy when you start to mix and match different bracelets.

If you’re feeling daring and bold, add in a layer or two of color with a smaller bangle that coordinates with your outfit. This is where you can have the most fun because you can also mix and match your nail color and outfit to complete the look. The key is to try and re-use some of your old pieces too. You would be surprised how some of your more "dated" bracelets will give you a vintage flare.

Step 3: Don't get too crazy! If you're deciding to emphasize on the arm candy, you may want to consider minimizing your other accessories. Avoid chunky necklaces, rings, or earrings, that way your bracelet collection will be sure to stand out. Also, keep in mind where you are going and what you will be doing that day! You don't want to be the office annoyance who can't stop clanking their wrist into things.

The best part of stacking bracelets is you can customize the look to your preference, so try it out and have fun. Visit LePrix for some of our favorite stackable bracelets to get your look started today!
