One of the New Year’s biggest trends is mile high stacks of bangles. Whether it be Vogue, Elle, or Marie Claire, you better believe that when you go to peel open your fave fashion magazine of choice, you’ll be noticing piles and piles of bangles, bracelets, and cuffs—sometimes, on both wrists!
I’m absolutely loving this look and I can’t wait to stock up on all different types of bracelets to mix and match with every outfit. The best part of this trend is that you can really do no wrong. Try pairing printed acrylics with solid colors stacked three-to-four high. Or, if you’re more adventurous, mix prints! You can go for chains or leather–the possibilities are endless. What’s also great about this look is that it’s super affordable–you can find cool bangles and bracelets at any price. Cara Croninger cuffs are absolutely amazing, as are the bejeweled works of art by Erickson Beamon. Truthfully speaking, these are great goods if you can afford upwards of $600 per bracelet, but as the world turns, we are not made of money. Never fear, Forever 21 has a ton of CHEAP options (I saw nothing over $10). Pair this look with bold-colored clothes, or add a bit of pizzazz to more simple outfits (for your t-shirt and jeans days). Either way, you can’t go wrong piling them high in 2011!
