One of the summer trends we just can’t get enough of is “arm candy”, or bracelet stacking. Seen all across the fashion world, wearing multiple bracelets all together has become the new statement piece. Creating an eclectic collection that tells who you are, what you like, or where you’ve been, and stacking them on your wrists can be a conversation starter, or the conversation itself.
You’ve seen them all across the web and in stores, in fashion magazines and on celebrities. Bracelet stacks like the following can however end up costing you quite a bit of money!
A great way to save money on curating your bracelet stacks is to use what you have! If you have old friendship or hemp bracelets from back in the day, great! Those would look awesome with a metal cuff. Old prom jewelry lying around? Stack those next to a leather wrap bracelet and you’re good to go! There are also plenty of cool bracelets to be found at thrift stores, and you can always make your own!
