Recent accessory obsession: bracelets

March 3, 2013 • Accessories, Fashion10 Comments

Ok, so maybe this wasn’t a recent obsession, but I have been finding myself wearing bracelets more often nowadays. In the past I’d only wear one bracelet at a time, but quickly that look got old…and boring :P It’s always more fun when you layer pieces, no?

Mixing and matching bracelets to create unique styles

The more I started mixing and matching my jewelry, the more I realized, you don’t need a lot of different pieces to create different looks! I switched out one piece from the ensemble above, and now I have something a little less dainty, a little more edgy:

I switched the pink & silver charm bracelet for the flower beaded bracelet

The second thing I learned is when it comes to layering, costume jewelry plays much better with each other than expensive pieces, not to mention they’re much more affordable. One of my favorite places to shop for those pieces is Old Navy – they have some seriously cute jewelry!

Lastly, and probably irrelevant, is that I still prefer silver jewellery to gold jewelry. I’ve definitely been more open to the latter now, and even accumulated a few pieces, but I just find silver jewelry much easier to match with my clothes :P

What recent accessory obsessions do you have? Are you a fan of mixing and matching jewelry? Do let me know :)

    I love bracelets, but I get so iffy at times because I type and write a lot, so the become a nuisance I do love how you mixed up the first one though – the bubbles and key look great together!

    Ooh, I like the idea of layering your bracelets! Replacing just one of them really did make a difference. I especially like your flower beaded bracelet :D

    I grew up wearing gold jewelry (my grandfather was a jeweler), so I still have a fondness for it. I wear a yellow gold necklace with a jade charm, but my rings are white gold. I don’t really wear jewelry other than those though!

    My recent obsessions are ones that I’ve already had for a while, food and video games! I also got back into Anime recently, after not watching any for a few years.

    I like thick or chunky bracelets as well! Layering gives it a new look – very pretty!!

    To be honest, I don’t have many bracelets myself, but I do have many other jewelry like necklaces and earrings. ( I do want to buy more and more… ) :P I wish I had more bracelets, I like the layering style of them. XD

    Actually, I’ve always love piling them together :D i recently bought a lot of bracelets/bangles during the winter sales in january.
    In fact, when I was younger I can’t take any gold stuffs, i find them too odd and only fit old people. As i got older, i think a lof of my accessories are going towards the gold edge, matching them with black stuffs. Silver became a little too boring for me ;S

    I always thought it would be a pain to wear layered jewelry, but I still love the way it looks! I just use my hands and flail around too much so I’ll probably whack someone in the face or ruin my bracelets had I worn multiple, haha :(

    Lately, I would say accessory obsession would be earrings with a cuff link! I think the chain looks really cute, haha. I’ve yet to get my hands on some, though since I can’t find any decent places that sell any :[

  7. I also prefer silver to gold – never been a fan of gold for whatever reason! Though rose gold has been appealing to me lately. I like the idea of layering different pieces to create a whole bunch of looks :) Costume jewellery is always fun to play around with and much more affordable too!

    I normally don’t wear jewelry, though I do tend to wear earrings. Those bracelets look lovely. As for the color, I also prefer silver to gold. Layering bracelets sounds fun. I may do that sometime, though I may get distracted and fidget with my bracelets when I wear them.

    I am also madly in love with bracelets – and only have a few in my collection! Bracelets are one of those items that can go with so many different outfits and completely change the effect of an outfit with one simple change-up.
