Bracelets: A Great Fashion Accessory for the New Year

Bracelets have become a huge fashion statement in the past few years for women of all ages. The younger set has really embraced bracelets in their style choices. If you want to check out some for your wardrobe, we have a couple of great bracelet choices below you may want to add to your jewelry box in the New Year.

The Layered Bracelet Look

Young and not so young are all sporting the hot layered bracelet look this season! When layering your bracelets this year you may want to mix up their widths, materials, colors and styles. This is not the year for the matchy matchy look in layered bracelets. Try purchasing 2 or 3 metal bracelets with crystals, a few colored beaded bracelets and layer them with white or faux pearl bracelets. To complete this look, it is recommended to wear 4 or more bracelets at a time on your wrist.

Leather Cuff Bracelets

This year we are seeing teen girls and young adult women sporting wide leather cuff bracelets that are sized approximately 1 1/2" to 2" wide. If you are investing in this bracelet trend you definitely want to pick up a black one and one in chocolate brown. You can find these embellished with metal studs, clear and colored crystal and/or accented with metal chain. If you look hard enough you can even find a few styles that have dangling charms hanging off of them. These are great to wear with skinny jeans, layered tops and jackets along with statement shoes like gorgeous peep toe pumps.

Both styles look great with a variety of clothing choices. You can select bracelets that are sleek and richer in style for dressing up and choose a bit less expensive ones for weekends and jeans. Whichever style you choose, you will be right in line with hot styles in the New Year.
