… stretch bracelet sets.
I encourage all of my style consult clients to wear watches or bracelets whenever their wrists are exposed, as I think this adds polish to outfits. For those of us who work at computers, bangles and other large bracelets can be incredibly annoying, as they bang on desktops and interfere with hand and wrist comfort. But stretch bracelets? They hug the wrist and stay well out of your way as you type. And stretch bracelet SETS? Why, they give the look of a chic bracelet pile without having to select the perfect assortment of wrist candy. I mean, nothing beats a gorgeous armful of perfectly mismatched bracelets … but sometimes you want to reach for something simple and easy, but stylish and fun. Sets can often be mixed and matched, too, so you get the best of both worlds.
Here are some stretch bracelet sets that I’m drooling over these days:
Hematite Stretch Bracelet Set – $23.75
Gunmetal jewelry is my current obsession, so these hematite beads definitely appeal. They’re spaced with faceted silver beads which gives them a bit of added sparkle.
Sage K & Co Spike Stretch Bracelets – $19.99
I own this set of two and ADORE it. You can see a double set of silver mixed in with my silver shapes set in the collage up top, and I’ll admit that I prefer these worn with other stretch and non-stretch bracelets. They make fantastic accents on an armful of fun.
I would happily wear each of these three separately – and Express has lots of other stretch bracelet sets that would mix well with them – but they look fantastic stacked as a set, too.
I own these, too, and love ’em. As you can see, they make a bit of a hodgepodge worn together, which can be fantastic. But they also mix well with other pearl and/or stretch bracelets. The brights are really lovely and the neutrals very chic. (This similar set from Macy’s is $150. Yow.)
Love the mix of sparkly and matte, rounded and sharp shapes in this set. Some of these bracelets feature jade, which is likely why the price is slightly higher.
Daytrip Neon Beaded Bracelet Set – $9.38
Fun, affordable, and trendy, this set allows you to add a tiny pop of neon to any outfit. If yellow doesn’t send you, try the neon pink set.
Although I adore color, my simple silver stretch bracelet sets are the ones that get near-constant use. These three would be fantastic mixed with spikes or sparklies, but could also add a classic touch to any outfit.
Who else out there is a stretch bracelet lover? Do you wear them in sets? Mix and match? A little of both?
