One of my favorite ways to complete an outfit is with an arm party. What is an arm party you ask? An arm party is a mix of different bracelets. I used to carefully create my arm parting so they would match perfectly with my outfit but that has long since gone out the window. Now I like my arm party to complement my outfit but not necessarily match. Below is my go-to arm party recipe. Sometimes I add more and sometimes I wear less but I normally follow the below pattern:
- Find a statement piece – The first thing I always do to build my arm party is to find a statement piece to build my arm party around. I usually choose a watch but it could also be a chunky interesting bracelet like this one. When I saw this beautiful rose gold watch from klasse14 I knew I would be wearing it all the time. I love the rose gold color and the unique watch face. You can use code “JORDANBERECZ” for 12% off!
- Add something dainty – Since the watch is a bigger piece of jewelry, I always add something smaller next to it for some juxtaposition. This bracelet was gifted to me by one of my bridesmaids (thanks Nikki!) and has my wedding date in roman numerals on it.
- Add something pretty– The last bracelet I add is something pretty but not overwhelming that will compete with the statement piece. I love this Kendra Scott bracelet because it goes with everything and looks a little different since it’s open.
- Don’t be afraid to mix metals – I used to be terrified of mixing metals but now I embrace it. My wedding rings are platinum so in order to wear gold and rose gold I have to be okay with mixing metals. I think it looks effortless and chic when you mix metals in the right way.
- Have fun with it! Remember – there are no “rules” in fashion so play around with the bracelets you have until you find something you like! There’s no wrong way to create an arm party!
I hope this helped those of you struggling with how to pair bracelets to create arm parties! Don’t forget to tag me when you upload pictures of your arm parties so I can see!
