Layering guide: how to layer bracelets

Layering guide: how to layer bracelets

Layering bracelets is an easy and fun way to instantly upgrade your look, similar to layering necklaces and rings. From chunky bracelets to dainty bracelets, to bangles and every bracelet design in between, bracelets are easy to stack in a variety of ways that still look sophisticated.

How do you stack bracelets?

Stacking bracelets simply means wearing more than one bracelet on the same arm. There’s no rule for how many to stack, nor is there a rule for what kinds of bracelets can be stacked together.

The easiest way to stack bracelets is to choose one “anchor” piece, such as a large bangle or other bracelet that will stay in place on the wrist, then stack your other bracelets around that one. You don’t want them to all melt into one large, twisted piece on your wrist; there should be enough of a difference in size and texture that the bracelets are all individually visible, while still looking good together.

Alternatively, you can stack many of the same bracelet for a cohesive (some might even say minimalist) but playful look.

How many bracelets should be in a stack?

If you want a stack of bracelets, you’ll need at least two. The maximum number is decided by how long your arms are and how many bracelets you own!

The key to a good bracelet stack is ensuring that they don’t get tangled, which can look sloppy and makes it hard to see each individual bracelet. You can do this by varying size, type, and the tightness of the bracelets.

Can you mix metals in a bracelet stack?

Yes, you can mix metals in a bracelet stack. In fact, that’s a great way to bring visual interest to your bracelet stack. 

If you’re not sure where to start, try getting the same bracelet in two different metal colors, such as white gold and yellow gold; the similarity of the silhouette with the difference of the color offers a nice contrast without feeling over-the-top.

Can you stack bracelets on both wrists at the same time?

Absolutely! The key to bracelet stacks is your personal comfort, so as long as your arms feel comfortable, you’re good to go. 

One look that’s always in style is two bracelet stacks of the same bracelet on both wrists. This gives a really clean look that’s both maximalist and sophisticated. 

Can you layer bracelets with a watch?

Layering bracelets with a watch is a great way to start your bracelet stack. A watch typically sits quite tight on the wrist, making it a great anchor or foundational piece for the rest of your stack. 

You can either match your bracelet stack to your watch - a yellow gold watch with yellow gold bracelets, for example - or mix and match for a more casual look.

If you prefer to let your watch speak for itself, try wearing a match on one wrist, and a stack of bracelets on the other.

What is an “arm party?”

An “arm party” is just another name for a stack of bracelets, or layered bracelets. Typically, an “arm party” includes a variety of styles, metals, and colors. An “arm party” should instantly bring joy.

There is a popular hashtag, #armparty, that you can check out for inspiration on how to make your ideal arm party.
