Your Guide to Styling Up an Arm Party

by

Arm parties can be the perfect way to accessorise, whether you’re going to a special event or you’re simply going out for the day. They can look amazing with just about any outfit, and make great Instagram/Pinterest pictures too! This guide will help you to style up your very own arm party.

Mix Metals and Colours

To put together a great arm party, you can’t be afraid of mixing metals and colours until you come up with a good combination. Some people say you can’t mix silver and gold, for instance, but you can! Gold looks amazing with shades of turquoise, while silver can look awesome with colours like yellow and pink. Experiment until you find something that suits you!

Mix Materials and Textures

Materials and textures will make your arm party look so much more interesting. Studded bracelets paired with metal bangles and leather bits will look way more interesting than bracelets all made from the same material. Get creative with your choices. If you need help, make sure you look on Pinterest and Instagram, as there will be plenty on there.

Wear Different Styles

Don’t worry about the styles of your bracelets. Have fun mixing them up! You might enjoy mixing friendship bracelets, bangles, boho styles, and more. They don’t all have to be the same kind of style to look good. That being said, you can keep them in the same kind of ‘genre’ if you like. It’s completely up to you!

Stack Them All Up

The more bracelets you wear in this case, the better! Stack them all up and have fun with them. Don’t worry about wearing too many at once. I love stacking up arm cuffs for a really tough, different look.

Include a Statement Piece

Including a statement piece is a good idea, because you can then base the rest of your arm party choices around that. A statement piece like a watch would work well. Experiment with different coloured watch bands too if you like. Always mix bracelets of different sizes and colours to avoid looking too ‘samey’. Be careful you don’t wear anything that could get damaged. For example, if you plan on wearing a metal watch, be careful of adding other bracelets that could scratch the surface.

Style Both Arms

Don’t think you can only create this look on one arm either. You can style up both arms to really enhance your look! Don’t do both arms exactly the same though. You can style them in the same fashion, but make sure you use different pieces to avoid looking too symmetrical.

The arm party has been around for a while, and it isn’t going anywhere any time soon. If you want to funk up your holiday, festival, and regular day to day looks, make sure you try it out! I love layered looks like this and try to do it with my necklaces and outfits too. Let me know how you got on in the comments.

Essential Summer Accessory | Sunglasses

by

No summer is complete without a pair of chic sunglasses to complete your look. They rank really high on the list of essential summer accessories, sunshine calls for sunglasses, pronto.

On that note, let me introduce you to my new beau this summer. Many of you following me on my other social media channels have already been acquainted…
Ray-Ban 4175 Clubmaster Oversized Matte Havana 60921Ray-Ban Clubmaster Oversized Matte Havana c/o – Sunglasses Shop

Wait until you see these baddies on…the magnitude of chicness is off the scale, these Oversize Matte Havana takes it up a few notches with the mirrored lenses. The beauty of the Ray-Ban clubmaser is that they are unisex. I’ve been loving mirrored lenses since they came back on trend about 2 years ago, I’m glad the trend is lingering on for another season (and maybe more, who knows), but even if the trend fades, the Ray-Ban clubmaster is a classic trend that will remain, so it’s a win win.

Buying a pair of sunnies online is something I’ve never done and I found a little difficult. If like me, you find it a little tough choosing a pair of sunnies, try the steps below.

1. Go online, here you’ll have the virtual visibility of all available options. No one is hovering around expecting you to buy one or two of the 100 sunglasses you’ve tried on while searching for the perfect fit – but potentially walking away with none.

2. Open a new tab for every sunglasses you like. I had about 20 tabs open when I was trying to pick these on Sunglasses Shop

3. Narrow them down by what you don’t like about each one e.g tint, logo, size etc. You’ll find that this will reduce your options quicker until you come down to finals.

4. Finally, select your favourite brands of all the tabs you have open. You will find that you actually really like all the sunglasses that you have left, this really makes choosing one a lot easier.

5. Seek second opinion like you would if you went shopping in a store (this is optional). Give it a day or two and revisit, at this stage you are drawn to some more than others.

Which ever one you opt for could not be wrong.

Give this a go and let me know if it works, you can thank me later 😉
