How to create a stunning stack
Once you know what bracelets to take, check out these tips that will help you to stack them correctly.
You should choose a basic color and its hues that will be present in all bracelets in a stack. Without sticking to this rule, it’ll be impossible to look stylish. A harmonious match of color from the same family visually connects bracelets of different materials and styles. For instance, gold bracelets are great for stacking with warm colors, while silver works well with cold ones. Consider that red, orange, yellow, pink, and all their hues are warm. And all shades of green, blue, purple, black are cold.
The weight and width of decorations are detrimental for perfect stacking. Consider that wide and heavy bracelets will better look at the bottom of your arm, near the wrist. Put thin and light bangles, chains, or charm bracelets above. You should keep them evenly distributed so as not to look messy. Please, do not overwhelm your look with too many bracelets and stick to a happy medium.
Another rule of thumb for stacking bracelets is mixing their materials. It is a great solution to diversify your look and make each item noticed. Here we recommend trying to pair gold and silver chain or bangle bracelets. But it’s not always appropriate to choose the same decoration style as they may simply not work well. Always stack bracelets in different combinations to opt for the best.
And finally, always pay attention to your outfit when stacking bracelets. It will help you to define the best style and combination of decorations. So let's take a romantic outfit: an evening gown or stylish costume. Here you should stop on pearl and link bracelets made of precious metals and natural stones.
