Once you’ve picked your bracelets, it’s time to get creative with styling. Follow our five bracelet styling tips to build your ultimate stack.

1: Play with bracelet styles

Wondering which bracelet styles work well together? We love teaming simple designs like bangles and snake chains with statement pieces like charm and tennis bracelets. Charm bracelets add depth to your look and showcase your favourite charms.

2: Mix bracelet metals

Looking for a fresh bracelet idea? Go bold by mixing different metal finishes. Whether you want to wear your bracelets on one wrist or stand out by styling both, stack pieces in different metal finishes for a unique look.

Start simple with a bangle in sterling silver for a laid-back feel, and choose charms in a different tone (like 14k rose gold plating) to add contrast. From heart-shaped styles to letter charms that represent your initials, centre your look around a theme or pick charms that have a personal meaning. For a maximalist mixed-metal stack, wear your sterling silver bangle with a sparkling 14k gold-plated tennis bracelet and a gold-tone link chain bracelet.

3: Play with textures

From sleek bangles to classic snake chains to laid-back leather, the combination of textures you choose can really change the feel of your bracelet stack. Varying your textures can add depth to a monochrome look – we especially love the Studded Chain for this. Try adding a couple of studded bracelets to your stack to add a reflective touch and catch the light in a new way – you can even amplify the look with matching studded charms in the same texture.

4. Update your charm bracelets

If you find yourself reaching for the same go-to styling every day, maybe it’s time to switch it up! Adding some different charms into your usual rotation is an easy way to keep things fresh. Try including a vibrant colour or a bold shape to make your bracelet feel different from day to day.

Is your collection calling out for a new charm? Our selection of charms includes sterling silver, 14k rose gold-plated and 14k gold-plated styles in an array of designs – from sparkling pavé pieces to your favourite movie characters and lovable animals.

5. Styling your favourite metal

We love a mixed metal look, but if you prefer one finish, there are plenty of bracelet ideas to vary your stacks. The trick to wearing one metal finish is experimenting with styles, textures and shapes. Create a visual play between different bracelets with the same base metal finish:

1. Start with a simple sterling silver charm bracelet and add sparkling or colourful charms for interest and movement
2. Next, blend in a non-charm bracelet to create contrast, like a classic tennis bracelet  
3. To finish, choose a bangle that adds a chic edge
