Perfectly Stacked



While the term "arm party" may be slightly overused, it is a trend that's here to stay.  Not only is using this method an easy way to make a major statement with your jewelry (especially if you are keeping your neckline bare)...but when done correctly, it gives off a luxe vibe.  I've received a couple inquiries from readers about how to stack bracelets in a cohesive way that doesn't appear overly excessive.  Admittedly, these are not hard & fast rules, but they're the guidelines I like to follow when creating my stack.





What I'm wearing:
LOFT tank (similar), Forever 21 blazer (here), Gap pants (on sale here), c/o DMSX pumps (here), Dockers aviators (similar), c/o INPINK bracelets (left to right: one, twothreefour)

Like how you stacked your bracelets. I love the look but I always having to remove them once I get to the office. I just can't type with all the banging on the arm.
