I’ve been bracelet stacking since I was in college and I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon. My bracelet collection is pretty ridiculous, though I have to say looking at a picture of them, shows me I need more color! I often get asked how to put together a stack of bracelets, so I thought it might be something you would be interested in learning about.
It really is all about personal preference. There are days where I just wear one or none, but it is usually because of lack of time. There are days where it just isn’t practical to wear a huge stack of arm candy and I don’t. My preference would be to wear a stack every day though.
As you can see from my photo of my bracelet holder, I have a ton more silver bracelets than gold. I need to up my gold game! I do love gold stacks especially with an oversized gold watch!
In the upper left square, I started with a classic Tiffany bead bracelet, added a Silpada bracelet and then some bling. This is a combo I wear to work a lot. It goes with a ton of outfits, doesn’t clink together a lot and looks good together.
The left lower square is a similar idea, but I swapped the Tiffany for an Alex and Ani, a renegade bracelet and some colored bling. The key is to mix the texture of the bracelets up in your stack. I love this combo and you could easily switch up or add to it.
The upper right side is a more summery take on a stack. It’s a wrap bracelet, colored bling and an Alex and Ani bracelet. Again, a mix of texture and this time, color in your stack.
The lower right square is a mix of Tiffany and Pandora with bling and Silpada mixed in. I basically start with some textured bracelets and then throw in some bling!
There are literally 100’s of combos I can make with my bracelet collection. I do find myself getting in a rut and wearing the same ones together. That is mainly the reason I bought this bracelet holder, so I could put them all in one spot when I am getting ready.
I didn’t show them here, but I definitely include watches in my stack. They can really beef up your arm candy!
If you are just getting started mixing bracelets together, my recommendation would be to check Forever 21, Target, and Charming Charlie for some cheaper ones to get started with. Kate Spade has adorable bracelets, as does Alex and Ani when you are ready to spend a little more. Tiffany and Co, of course, has the classic sterling pieces. Keep in mind, I have been working on my collection for decades! I definitely wouldn’t have been able to go out and buy these all at once!
I regularly mix high and low end bracelets together. Same for watches, I have some higher end, but the watch I get asked about the most is from Target!
If you have any questions about how to build a stack or the details on any of my bracelets, let me know in the comments! Many were gifts, but I know where they are from.
