The term 'arm party' was first coined by the genius that is Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller, and refers to the stacking of a variety of bracelets one one's arm. An arm party may refer to just two bracelets but as with most parties, they are known to increase and get louder and louder.
- Don't be afraid to mix gold, rose gold, copper, silver, different textures, pops of colour or patterns on your wrist. However keeping your bracelets in a similar base tone like gold hardware or silver hardware makes for a more cohesive assemblage.
- Make sure that your arm party complements your outfit
- I would recommend keeping any chunky bangles off the guest list. They tend to dwarf some of the smaller, more delicate bracelets and create an overall sloppy look
- Mix and match thick and thin arm bracelets with different textures
- If your outfit is simple, don’t be shy to go bold with strong colours and chunky bracelets.
- A pop of colour gives your arm party more depth. Pick and choose no more than 3 colours of the same tone and shade for your outfit
- Build your collection of bracelets slowly and meaningful. These bracelets are a signature look so take the time to pick bracelets which fit your style and aesthetic which you can wear for months too come. A stack of bracelets that all look the same lack the character and quirk of an arm party.
- If you wearing an arm party, try to keep the rest of your jewelry to a minimum. A minimalistic necklace helps the bracelets really stand out. Let the arm party be the center of your jewelry statement
- Wear what makes you comfortable. If 7 bracelets is four too many, don't be afraid to tone it down. You can always work your way up to Leandra Medine's 'frat party rager'.
