Love it or Leave It: Layered Bracelets

{A Chic Take on Layered Bracelets via Michael Kors}

What are your thoughts on the stacked bracelet look? This seemed to be a huge trend in the summer with people mixing rhinestones, gold, and neon colored bracelets. Now that fall is upon is, the look seems to have veered in the direction of gold. I love jewelry, but I can’t bring myself to layer so many pieces together, though I do love the look in the photo above. Is this a trend you’ve embraced? Do you think more is more or are you from the Coco Chanel school of thought that states you should always take off one piece of jewelry before leaving the house? Do you love this look or would you rather leave it?

It really depends! I think you can layer if they're thing and delicate. I don't like layering big ones. It's too much!

I hope you have a great day, Paloma!

Love the first look. I think this is beautiful when done right, but it is harder to accomplish than it looks. The layered look can look too bohemian or just simply messy when done wrong. I'm not sure the others pictured got it right and every time I've tried I end up more like them. Maybe I just need a few more pounds of really expensive gold jewelry!!

Ana Liza said...

depends on the look i'm going for, but I almost always layer whatever is lying around in my jewelry chest! Love the look.

Love this look! I think you can get really creative with it and it's a great way to dress up a more simple outfit.

I like the layered look but 3 pieces on one wrist is the perfect amount for me! I would also skip either a big necklace or earrings and let my wrist have the spotlight!

Love them all!

Take it! My arm is covered virtually every day!

I just love it! Although, its a bit impractical because all of them are super nice individually so I bet thats gonna be super expensive to acquire. I LOVE the pics you posted

Meg said...

I am such a bracelet fan! I would take any of these looks. Super cute!

Squeak said...

I love this look, especially the first picture! I'm 57 years old and, for most of my life, haven't had any jewelry at all. However, now that I can afford it, I want to make up for lost time! Like Creatgirl, I avoid other jewelry when I pile on the bracelets.

I LOVE it. I try to wear as many as possible daily...and lately have even seen stacking of smaller delicate watches, which looks really cool!! Unfortunately I have to work on my watch collection before attempting that.

Great post!

Love it! I almost always wear a watch with three or four bracelets. If I wear a chunkier watch then I pair down the bracelets to about two.

I love it, but I think the pieces have to be similar in some way. In summer, I didn't really love the look of string friendship bracelets mixed with chunky gold and sparkly pieces. I LOVE the first photo!

I love the layered look! I just love unique jewelry so trend is an opportunity to really embrace what you've got. It's so fun and visually interesting...especially when someone is wearing gorgeous pieces (like all the pics you've posted)!

Love it!
I've decided this is going to be my schtick through winter this year.
In fact, just snagged the Michael Kors wrap bracelet featured in this post:

Oh, without question LOVE...and I always have. I've been wearing a gaggle of bracelets with a chrono watch for years now. I love seeing how different people express their style based on their pairings.

LOVE IT! Definantly take :)

I love it when they all have the same look, but when they're all completely with a different feel, it's a bit too crazy-town.

Tobe | Because It's Awesome said...

i'm with you - i definitely love the look when i see it in these pics, but i'm not sure it's my style. kudos to those ladies that rock it, though!

Barbara@hausDesign said...

I think it's beautiful when it's done well - the first one is gorgeous... I have some layered on as I type this...so I love it!

hello, Friday said...

I love heavily stacked bracelets with cropped jacket, or sleeveless. xoxo

Love it, but I do it with artisan silver

Stacy W said...

LOVE it, in moderation. I'm really liking the mix of textures of bracelets(leather with metal bangles) and watches like the first Michael Kors pic.

Shelly@ConfettiStyle said...

Love it. What a great way to jazz up a simple outfit and make a style statement.

Emily said...

I'm a huge fan of the multi bracelet. I can't wear them all day (especially working) but so fab while out and about. I'm very into the gold too and love the watch thrown in there.

I love it. It looks so chic with a simple outfit and really dresses it up. Unlike necklaces and earrings, you don't need to look in a mirror to admire your bracelets. I wear them for me, and sometimes I need a little excess.

Camila said...

I love it!!! But I think it is a more comfy look in the summer than it is in the winter. It's kind of hard to fit chunky bracelets inside a winter coat.

Love it!
