In theory, summer should be around the corner. But in Montreal, Mother Nature has ben slacking a bit in the heat and sun department. Each day I am more and more hopeful that we are one day closer to rising temperatures (and hem lines)! With that comes the addition of more short-sleeve and sleeveless tops, and (in my case), arm candy! Lately I have been obsessed with the creativity some have when it comes to slacking bangles, watches, bracelets and charms and I’m not alone. Instagram features close to 1 million photos with the hashtag #armcandy (that’s shit’s cray) featuring the dazzling creativity of fashionistas everywhere! So in the spirit of accessorizing, I thought I would share a little inspiration. Who knows, it might inspire Mother Nature to cooperate a little more.
Creating an effortless arm candy look can take a little strategy. If you’re not sure where to start? Here are a few tips:
1) Start with a watch – gold or silver, it doesn’t really matter.
2) Add a a cute bangle.
3) Throw on a dainty charm bracelet (bonus points if it’s monogrammed).
4) Finish with a little bling!
There are no set rules when it comes to stacking up, but if you’re thinking of mixing metals just keep in mind that the bling is the element that will help bring the entire look together. Other than tat, let you imagination be your guide!
