Calvin Klein Brilliant bangle
Trends have more life than cats - and that also applies to chunky bangles. This piece of jewellery from my teenage years is currently making a big comeback.
I hardly ever leave the house without jewellery. Earrings, necklaces, rings - always bring them. But my wrists are usually left empty-handed when it comes to decoration. Maybe because the jingling on my arms gets on my nerves. The clacking when I type on my laptop. But above all, because so far I have had to think back to my fashionably awkward teenage years, when lush bangles had their last heyday. . But my bad associations are currently being overwritten. Statement bangles are back - and look more elegant than ever. Brands like Jil Sander, Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen have shown: Generously draped wrists are among the big jewellery trends for 2023.
The bangles of the moment, however, do not stand out because they are particularly colourful or playful. On the contrary. Simple organic or geometric shapes in classic solid colours like gold, silver or black dominate the catwalks. What catches the eye is their chunky designs, stacked generously for maximum effect.
How to style statement bangles . You can create a subtle, everyday look with a single, simple piece. If you want to stack on one side, don't overdo it or it will quickly look unbalanced.
Two identical pieces on both wrists look particularly harmonious and elegant. If you want to add a bit more excitement without too much effort, you can also wear two different bangles. For the look to be rounded, however, they should have a similar style (see cover picture).
You can make it more extravagant by stacking bangles on both wrists. You can combine geometric shapes - like square and round bangles - and play with different materials like gold, silver or wood. The bangles and their arrangement on both wrists may be the same, but they don't have to be. . Different combinations may seem less calm, but they look particularly exciting. You can create asymmetry not only by wearing different pieces of jewellery. For example, you can also arrange the same bangles in a different order or wear different numbers of bangles on each wrist.
All bangles can be worn in the same order.
Outstanding arm jewellery goes well with both long and short sleeves. With tight-fitting long-sleeved shirts, it is particularly effective to wear them over the fabric. With adjustable cuffs, you can also play with the placement and wear them higher up under the elbow instead of directly on the wrist. .
If you too want to decorate, mix and match now - here are my favourites from the range.
