7 Different Ways to Wear Bangles ...

By Crystal

One of the best ways to dress up your style is trying out different ways to wear bangles. These versatile bracelets are one of my favorite accessories. You can find them in any color and in a variety of shapes. I love experimenting with unique ways to wear bangles that best complement my outfit. With a jewelry box full, the sky's the limit.

1 Mix Shapes

Mix ShapesWhy should bangles only be circular? I remember the first time I found a square bangle. It quickly became one of my favorites. I love wearing it between two circular ones. If you're looking for new ways to wear bangles, try out different shapes together. Mix squares, triangles, circles and waves. You'll be amazed with the results.

2 Wear the Rainbow

Wear the RainbowIt may be tempting to keep things simple with a single color or just several bangles in a similar shade. Why be conservative when you can wear the rainbow? I love colorful outfits, but bangles let me take it to the next level. I can take a solid black skirt and white shirt, mix it with five or six bangles in different, bright colors and create a truly stunning outfit. Let your imagination run wild and give your wrists the attention they deserve.

3 Play with Sizes

Play with SizesI have several extremely wide bangles that I tend to wear alone. However, small and medium width bangles are perfect for mixing. Stack thinner bangles between wider ones to create a fun layered look. Be sure the smaller bangle doesn't get covered up. This is a great time to play with different colors too to make each layer truly stand out.

4 Love Textures

Love TexturesForget about being a Plain Jane. Wear bangles with varying textures or accents. These make your wrists and arms really stand out. They also help bring out different patterns in your clothes. Experiment with bold studs, engraved patterns, beads and gems. You'll be amazed at all the unique looks you can create when you mix solid-colored, smooth bangles with textured ones.

5 Writing's on the Wrist

Writing's on the WristIf you really want to make a statement, wear bangles with words. While some bangles have writing on them, I absolutely love the ones where the bangle itself is the word. My personal favorite is one that spells out DREAM in flowing script with a few jeweled accents. It's perfect for parties, girls' night out or just heading out shopping. Bangles give you the perfect opportunity to express yourself. Why not show everyone what's most important to you?

6 Embrace Charms

Embrace CharmsI love that charm bracelets aren't just normal bracelets anymore. Bangles with charms are insanely cute. Add your favorite charms to a charm bangle to get a unique look. Place it between a few slim bangles to draw even more attention to your charms. It'll also help charms from slapping against your wrists too much.

7 Bling out Your Ankle

Bling out Your AnkleBangles aren't just for your wrists. I got a large bangle as a gift and it ate my wrist. Luckily, it was stretchy, so I tried it around my ankle. I can't tell you how many compliments I got. The trick is choosing bangles that either have a clasp or stretch. They should still fit slightly loosely around your ankle. Wearing a few thin ones or one large one is a great way to accent a skirt, shorts or a dress.

Bangles are so versatile that there's really no wrong way to wear them. Even if you go overboard, they still look cute and funky. I always wear at least one bangle, but usually have several on. What are your favorite bangle styles?
