Think of the simple braided leather bands on the outdoor enthusiast and the sleek bracelet made of sterling silver beads on the scholarly type.

But how do you determine the right bracelet to wear and how to wear it or them without overdoing it? The following are the three things to consider as you look around at bracelets for sale or beads jewelry making supplies if you plan to make your own bracelets to wear:


3 Things to Look for When Buying & Wearing Bracelets


  • Choose the Right Fit and Proportions.

    While yes, some people can make extra loose bracelets shine and others look slim and fantastic with tight, choker-styled bracelets, they are the outliers. For most people, to get a good look with bracelets requires them to fit so well upon one’s wrist so that only one or two fingers can slide beneath them — not tight but also not overly loose. Additionally, it is a good idea to choose a bracelet based on the overall size of your wrist. In other words, those with slim wrists will look best with bracelets with thinner bands while those with thicker wrists should opt for bracelets with larger or chunkier profiles.

  • Overall Style.

    Ask yourself what is the look you want to go for? In most cases, you are wearing bracelets in order to personalize yourself and your overall look. For example, many men and plenty of women like a more natural look. This means earthy tones, high-end jeans, and dark-colored shoes. For this overall style, wood, leather, and stone beaded jewelry all would look fantastic in complement. For those women who like to dress up and make an entrance, something silver or a bracelet made of gold filled beads would be the better choice.

  • Wear for the Event.

    Just because you have an overall style does not mean that style is right for every occasion. When you are going to more formal events, you might choose a simpler silver or gold chain that adds to but doesn’t detract from your main outfit. In contrast, when you are heading to the park for a jog or to picnic with friends, then you might opt for a chunkier, more personal piece with Crystals. Want to stand out in a crowd?
