The Big Bangle Theory: Stack ‘Em High For Spring


From New York to Paris, designers accessorized their models with stacks of bangles. The bracelets are much chunkier than last year’s trend. Chloe Sevigny showed off Louis Vuitton’s tribal chic bangles over New Year’s, leading me to find inexpensive options to get her look. But I still haven’t had a chance to go to Forever 21. So, last night I decided to try to make due with what is already in my jewelry chest.

I discovered bracelets I haven’t worn for years! I’m embarrassed to say it, but sometimes you have to be told something is en vogue to want to wear it again. I was specifically inspired by the way Marc Jacobs mixed ethnic pieces with decadent gold for the Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton runway.

After about 30 minutes of trying different combinations, this what I cam up with: (Side note: You might not want to spend as long as I did trying on bracelets. It took two hours for the red to go away on my wrists!)my-bangles

Oh, and my dog, Bunny, liked playing with the bangles too!

    Hmm, most of my bangles are of the thin, jangly variety … maybe it’s time to stock up on chunk!
