Did you know that 77% of people wore less jewelry in 2020? Staying at home made us less inclined to dress up and accessorize.

Now, it’s time to break out the accessories once again! If you’re feeling a little rusty on how to spice up your wardrobe with jewelry, we’re here to help.

Today, let’s talk about how to wear a bracelet. Bracelets are some of the most popular jewelry choices for women and can make a huge statement when worn well.

Read on to learn more about wearing a bracelet (or bracelets) the right way.

Choosing the Right Bracelet for Your Occasion

Picking the best bracelets for your outfit starts with considering the occasion you’re dressing up for. If you’re spending a casual afternoon with friends or family, you can get as funky and creative as you want. However, a formal occasion tends to call for more traditional and pared-down bracelets. 

What goes well with formal wear? A simple gold or silver jewelry set will do the trick. Diamonds and other gorgeous gems are also at home in a formal setting.

Mixing and Matching Bracelets

One of the best things about using bracelets to accessorize is the opportunity to mix and match your collection. While you don’t want to put on dozens of bracelets at a time, you can certainly get away with three or more.

Bangles are some of the most fun and simple bracelets to mix and match. Imagine this edgy but delicate spike bracelet worn between engraved, studded or simple bangles. The look (and beloved jingling sound) of mixed and matched bangles are always in style.

Another way to mix and match your bracelets is to play around with colors, patterns, and materials. Test out the effect of combining chain bracelets, bangles, beaded bracelets, and charm bracelets. Trust your instincts and your style when picking the perfect combinations!

Keeping Things Comfortable

Ultimately, it’s important that your accessories don’t create feelings of discomfort. Bracelets that are too small tend to cause discomfort by squeezing or restricting the wrist. Bracelets that are too large may cause distractions throughout the day as you try to keep them from falling off.

If you get out of the house and find that a bracelet is making you uncomfortable, take it off and throw it in your purse! You want to wear a look that increases your confidence rather than one that bothers you or disrupts your day. You wouldn’t want to wear a pair of shoes that didn’t fit well, and you should take the same approach when selecting the types of bracelets you like to wear.
