Taper Down:

One of the easiest rules for first time arm party participants is to start with the largest bracelet first and taper down by size. Dainty beaded or chain pieces usually work best when placed closest to your hands. Once you’re confident with your stacking skills, you can switch up the size order depending on what looks best.

A mixed media wrap bracelet is always an easy way to cheat the system and make it look like you put more work into your arm party than you really did. Get creative by wrapping several contrasting necklaces around your wrist, like I did above.

Color-Coordinated:

If you’re not confident mixing materials, like a wooden bangle with a lucite bangle, opt for a harmony of colors like my monochromatic mix above. This visually friendly rule will provide a nice safety net when mixing and matching.

Themed Party:

Choosing a theme is an effective way to exhibit cohesion. Above, I went with a nautical theme for summer. For fall, try rocking an animal or tribal themed stack with a leopard cuff and elephant charm as accents.

Choose a Centerpiece:

Break up a store-bought bangle set with two or three unique pieces to add your own personality into the mix. Be sure to infuse pieces that match the general size of your arm party, especially when creating larger get-together
Lots of Love!!!
