 Over the years, we have seen many different styles and trends come and go when it comes to using bracelets to accessorize. One style that has managed to stay relevant over the years is layering, which is wearing multiple bracelets in different widths, colors and designs all at once. Some women only wear a few layers while others will really stack the bracelets on creating a dramatic look that is hard to miss.

Most of the time, layering of bracelets involves using pieces that compliment each other. For example, you might see mostly metal bracelets with an occasional splash of color. We often see chunky bracelets mixed in with very dainty, thin bracelets that add a bit of extra detail. bracelets

One very popular trend we see quite often these days is layering bracelets with a watch. It seems that wearing a wristwatch on its own is a style that comes and goes with women. Some women’s wristwatches are made to stand-alone and make their own statement. Others can definitely benefit when combined with accentuating bracelets. Even men have picked up on this trend.  

The watch will essentially act as the statement piece with the bracelets serving as support. We’ve found that even mixing metal colors and textures is okay when done tastefully. Adding a layer of color is a great way to get a more dynamic look. A gemstone bracelet might be the perfect layer to your watch, giving you an eclectic look that is overdone.

You’ll find that once you start, you’ll begin to learn all kinds of fun tricks and ideas for layering bracelets with watches. Keep an eye open and you’ll discover that layering is happening all around you. Just doing some simple people watching can give you new ideas to try. We see many women who will match their nail color to their bracelet and watch layering. There’s no limit to what you can do.
