As a college student, wearing high fashion clothes to every class is just not realistic. Between the cost of books, sorority dues and parking tickets, hardly any cash remains to invest in runway-worthy clothing. It is no wonder that fashion-loving college students have embraced the idea of layering bracelets! They are inexpensive, adorable and have the ability to transform an outfit from dull to dazzling.
The best part about this trend is that no two wrists are alike! This Fashionista wore blue-toned bracelets (namely a Marc Jacobs Turnlock Bracelet) in order to complement her otherwise monochromatic outfit. Some opt for more of a flower child look with colorfully braided bracelets and leather bands intertwined with admission bracelets to recent music festivals. Others attempt a more professional look that may include a designer watch and a little something from David Yurman. But if you’re like me, your collection shamelessly changes more often than the weather. If it sparkles, shines or catches eyes, add it to your stack!
If you’ll be packing your bags for a tropical getaway this summer, be sure to check out this bracelet set from Anthropologie. The beads will pick up those rays, adding subtle glamour to your casual beachwear. If you’re looking for a more stackable bangle, you may be interested in this one by kate spade new york.
