What better way to welcome warmer weather than with some colourful accessories? This spring/summer season, the stacking trend is still going strong, which means it’s time to start stocking up on some bright bracelets to layer on your wrists. Don’t be afraid to mix and match your trends to create a whimsical wrist look that is unique to you and your style. Whether you’re into beaded, woven, boho, or classic army candy, have fun with your wrist art this summer.
“The stacking and layering trend has been around for a while and it’s definitely not going anywhere,” explains Jacquie Myburgh and Heidi Gresty, the design team behind The Makery Collection’s new range of stacking bracelets. “It doesn’t matter what kind of personality you have, edgy, glamorous or boho, stacking gives you an opportunity to express yourself and create your own story.”
To pull off this trend Jacquie and Heidi share their top tips for stacking this season:
Keep it simple:
If you’re just starting out with the stacking trend, keep it simple. As you get more confident (and brave) be adventurous and start mixing up your bracelets to create new looks.
Mix it up:
Once you’ve got the hang of the trend, don’t be afraid to try new combinations, mix up metals, colours, materials and add texture to keep the look visually interesting.
Play with size:
Another way to bring interest to your wrist candy look is to play around with different bracelet sizes. Mix up the proportions with larger bracelets by throwing in a thick or chunkier chain or for a more feminine look, choose lighter colours with a mix of beaded pieces and thinner chains.
Comfort is key!
Most importantly, make sure your stack of bracelets are comfortable on your wrist and don’t get in the way of your daily routine.
No matter how you choose to style your bracelets, have fun and play with the colour combinations. If you’re not sure what colours to combine take inspiration from the outfit you are wearing. And remember…when stacking, anything goes! It’s your opportunity to flaunt your personality and embrace your own personal style.
