Jail Up Bracelets—THE Accessory Trend To Follow Right Now

Jail Up Bracelets—THE Accessory Trend To Follow Right Now

The one element from your ensemble that’s having a MAJE fashion moment right now is accessories. And we’re all shouting out for chunky pieces. There’s no doubt that accessorising can transform an outfit and take it to a whole new level. More and more women are opting for simpler outfits but decking up the look by adding various accessories to it. From delicate layered chains or hair accessories, more is the new less today.

Here at WODROB, chunky is just the trend we’re looking at. And the one piece we want to talk about today are jail up bracelets. This accessory is the fad ‘round mode town. Jail up bracelets, like the name suggests, are chunky arm pieces that cover your hand from wrist to just about your mid arm. ‘Forget the small and embrace the big’ that’s what we’re abiding by this summer. While dressing up in summer seems pretty bothersome, we can’t help but love this new trend. It only elevates a simple look to a rather cool and funky one with just a few additions. Wondering how to sport the trend? Happy to help! Here are two ways to rock the jail-your-arms look:

 Pile It On

Jail your arms in multiple bracelets this season! We bet you’ve got a lot of bracelets lying in the nooks of your messy accessory drawer. Well, what are you waiting for? Take them all out and sport them at once. Now, by all we mean the ones that will suit the outfit you will be sporting, and also the ones that can be stacked together. Add it all on one arm or both, depending on your style quotient. Just keep in mind that accessorising both your arms may look a tad bit overdone for a day outing or even for a brunch with your girl gang. Wear bracelets with Turkish, Indian and Greek design elements in materials like metal, chains or even crystals.
WM Tip: Keep your outfit simple and amp your arms up with this. If you have too much going on with your outfit, the bracelets will tend to get lost in the whole look and nullifying the trend completely.

Arm Up

Arm bracelets have always been a trendy piece in Grecian jewellery. From snake patterns to thick metal bands, and ethnically-designed arm kadas worn with saris, most of us own an arm band or have tried it out at some point. Now is the time to revive this style by jailing up your upper band. The only difference here is that, instead of piling on multiple bands together, choose a chunky piece to do the job. You can sport this look with your boho-inspired outfits, cut-out gowns or even with a pair of jeans and a tank top. Experiment with different designs and shapes.
WM Tip: We suggest you to steer away from wearing an arm band on both your arms.
