Spring Bracelet Trends: What to Wear and How to Wear It

By Charlotte Elizabeth Grainger

With spring now upon us, a seasonal fashion overhaul is very much in the cards. As the temperature rises, it's time to cast your bulky sweaters aside in favor of something far lighter and breezier. Luckily, this shift in the style world presents the perfect opportunity to roll up your sleeves and show off your chic bangle collection. If you're not sure where to start, here are the latest bracelet trends of the season:

Edgy: Over-the-Sleeve

If you're covering up with sheer shirts or boho blouses, never fear. You can still rock this fad without having to cover up. Hot off the catwalks, there's a stunning new bangle style to be obsessed with: the over-the-sleeve trend.

This original little idea is just what it says on the tin. You slip your chunkiest, boldest bracelets right over the sleeves of your favorite tops. Be certain to wear flowing pieces that leave a lot of scope for experimentation. At the heart of this look is the idea that you pull the shirt in with your bracelet, allowing the jewelry piece to be a commanding focal point.

Chic: Mixing Metals

The cardinal sin of mixing gold and silver is no longer the taboo you might believe it to be. In fact, you can take some real pleasure in mixing metals and getting an exquisite look. Of all of these spring bracelet trends, this is perhaps the most daring. You merely have to select a few of your most precious bangles and wear them as a combination piece. Don't stress yourself out about clashing pieces; that's exactly the key to this eccentric look.

Unique: Layered Bracelets

Sticking with the topic of mixing and matching pieces, layering bangles has been one of the most prominent bracelet trends in recent years, and it's not going anywhere anytime soon. As a golden rule, you should opt for an array of pieces rather than a confining theme. Including some bodacious variety within your core look will work wonders for your unique brand of style.

Bold: The Statement Piece

Contrary to many of these styles, there's the statement piece aesthetic. This look hinges firmly on one visually striking piece, rather than a combination of various pieces. It's absolutely essential that you invest in a lavishly pronounced bangle or cuff bracelet if you hope to achieve this look.

The key to pulling this off effectively is ensuring the rest of your style is minimalist. You don't want a so-called busy look here. In short, the jewelry should stand out against the blank canvas of your clothing and other pieces.

Boho: Upper-Arm Style

Finally, if you're trying to capture a more whimsical, bohemian vibe, there's an entirely new way to wear your bracelet collection. Upper-arm pieces work best when they're as weighty as they are enticing. Choose a selection of pieces that express your inner personality. These are the adornments that will serve you best in the long-term. Use a layering technique with bangles fitted closely to the skin for a free-spirited look.

This spring, show off your style with these chic, inventive bracelet trends.
