It’s Tuesday! (or at least I think it is…you know how summer can get!)
ARM PARTY: (ahrm-pahr-tee)
noun: to load up one’s wrist with fab bracelets, bangles and adornments for the simple purpose of looking fabulous.
So today I wanted to post about something that I GUESS is a trend, but it’s been around or a while so I’m not exactly posting about how it’s new-I just wanted to talk about arm parties because they’re SO fun!!
So first things first-I wanted to share my arm parties, and the different ways to wear them!
Lately I’m having a party on my arm everyday!
This is what I wear everyday:
for an everyday arm party I always put on my watch which is a must, since I have gold on my watch I always add a few gold bangles/spiked bracelets, a real fancy pink bracelet, my personalized leather bracelets and my cool turquoise bracelet. For me, this is the perfect arm party because I have a mix of fancy bracelets with easy to wear bracelets-which works for everyday because sometimes I dress super nice but sometimes I just want to wear a tshirt! I also like to add bracelets that are personalized because that makes it YOURS!
If you’re wanting an arm party that’s bohemian, do something like this:
add a woven friendship bracelet with some vintage bangles and be colorful!! Also for a bohemian arm party add some leather bracelets(or faux leather!)
If you want a dressed up arm party or have a bigger bracelet that you want to show off-do something like this! For this arm party, add some different bangles in the same color as your statement piece(gold/silver) and add your statement last(closest to your wrist)
Those are my interpretations of arm parties- here are some of my favorite arm parties!
Basically here’s the rule with an arm party-pile on pretty jewels in similar colors, the limit is about 5 or 6 inches up your lower arm, and rock them!
The reason I love arm parties is because they just make an outfit SO much more interesting! If you have a cool piece from a different country, think about what a great conversation started it could be! One last thought on arm parties-if just a bunch of bracelets aren’t enough for you(because sometimes they aren’t enough for me!) add some cool rings! Either 1 or 2 bigger statement rings on the opposite hand of your arm party or a bunch of little dainty rings! You basically can’t go wrong!!
That’s it for today’s post! I hope you’ve been inspired and rock some awesome arm parties!!
