ALL IN THE DETAILS: I Want (Arm) Candy

In the South, our winters are as unpredictable as a good hair day. While the rest of the country is gearing up with layers of clothes for the cold, Southern Fashionistas are putting their own spin on the layering trend. The heat of the South keeps sweater layering at bay, but layers upon layers of arm candy have washed in with the rain and are here to stay.

This Fashionista knows exactly how to rock the arm candy trend.  She shows that color- blocking truly is an art when she mixes gold and silver pieces. By layering various jewel and metal tones, her arm candy takes on a life of its own to match every outfit. The Sorelli and Victoria Lynn jeweled bracelets are all the rage for bringing a little bling to your look. The threaded Pura Vida bracelet helps keep the look casual enough to fit this Fashionista’s effortlessly chic style. Add a trendy watch to your arm like this Fashionista, and the look will be as functional for a busy day in class as it is stylish.

The arm candy trend is extremely versatile and can be altered to fit any Fashionista. Switch out the more casual pieces with bigger bangles for a night out on the town. You can even take your arm candy to the next level by finding pieces that benefit charities you love. Check out Pura Vida; a company that lets you choose a thread that fits the style you love while giving money to a charity you love even more.
