Inspiration and How To: Arm Candy

Arm candy: Stacking up a blend of bracelets and bangles for that perfect pop and sparkle to your outfit. I mean .. why not? This is something that I personally love doing to complete any look that I have on for the day. Piling on accessories on your wrist seems pretty simple to do, but mixing and matching different accents may be a little tricky sometimes. Here are some of my tips!

Play up the different textures
A balance between hard metals and dainty colourful pieces give off a very edgy yet chic look to your outfit. Try putting on some colourful woven bracelets and some chunky industrial looking cuffs and look completely effortless.

Mix the metals
Don't be afraid to pair gold with silver, rose gold or any coloured metal of your choice. There are no rules when it comes to arm candy and if you feel it isn't standing out enough, add a bright pop of colour!

Start with a focal piece and work your way around
Feeling a little lost on how to stack your arm candy? Start by choosing a bold piece and then continue choosing other pieces you would like to match with the bolder piece.

Use a watch
Watches make great arm candy and makes it look really effortless. Working your way around your arm candy by putting on a watch first also makes it easier for you to pick out the other pieces, trust me!

If you have arm candy on one arm, try to keep it minimal on the other
You wouldn't want to look like an overkill and put on too much. So, try to draw all the attention to one arm instead of both! There is a difference between looking glam and a fashion catastrophe.

Hope you find these tips useful!
Much love!
