Trendwatch: Arm Party

2 Aug

So you may have noticed a new little icon on my side bar: ‘Bloggers Do It Better‘. In the words of its creator: ‘It’s a movement. An initiative to showcase real girls, with real style, wearing real trends.

Every month bloggers are challenged to wear a trend and this month it’s the ‘Arm Party’. Here watches/bracelets/bangles/cuffs are worn simultaneously and get to have a rather good time together. Then all the bloggers posts are linked up on the BDIB page and we get to see how real people wear the latest trends – cool idea right?!

My favourite arm party is ‘The Stacker’. This generally consists of piling up every bangle I own (I don’t want anyone to feel left out!).

First in lovely metallics, which go with everything:

All of the above – H&M

Styled for a night out:

Dress – Primark (£5)

Shoes – Topshop (£75)

Belt – Primark (£2)

And then it’s time for its quirky relative, the coloured plastic bangle. I personally love putting them all on one arm:

Neon and Metal Bangles – H&M

Chunky Blue Bangles – Miss Selfridge

Silver Ring – H&M

Black Ring – Primark

Gold Detail Ring – Primark (£2)

Or if that’s a bit too much, separate them on to both wrists:

Suede Shorts – Topshop

Colour Block T-shirt – Primark (£8)

Gold Leaf Ring – Topshop

I love the Arm Party as it’s a way of standing out and being on trend without having to splurge. Just pull out whatever you have in your jewellery box and you’re set! (All of my bangles are from 2007)

How do you wear yours?
