What's better than a really great bracelet? Lots of great bracelets, of course!!

Stacking bracelets has been a popular trend for a while now, and I for one am a HUGE fan. I love everything about it; the look, the versatility, the playfulness of it, but most of all, I love that it allows you to be creative, to create your own collage of accessories.

To some people this might sound intimidating. You like rules, and in this case, there are, but there aren’t rules. Confusing, I know. Stacking bracelets sounds easy (throw on whatever bracelets you have and you’re done) but layering bracelets isn’t just about how many pieces you can wear, but which ones you choose. It’s the difference between looking thrown together and purposefully polished.

If you're anything like me, you love a good how to or tutorial, so today I thought I would break all this down into a few simple steps for you. I am going to start with one of my all time favorite (Accessory Jane!) bracelets and show you how to build around it. 

Step 1: Texture & Size - Having different textures and sizes are important. Whether it’s opposites, like leather and beads or two different styles of leather. There needs to be a clear distinction. Looking at these, they look good, but not that interesting, right? You need something more...

Step 2: Add a Pop of Color – This is where the excitement and intrigue come into play. Allow yourself to have fun and play around with different colors.

Step 3: Sparkle & Shine – Finish off your look with a little sparkle! Just like in interior decorating it is good to always have a mirror in the room, you should always have a sparkle or shine in the mix as well. I like to think of it as your secret weapon. You can usually add this piece into almost any and every stack you create. It instantly gives it that completed and polished look. (Basically, it's a girls best friend, right?)
