Accessory Alert: Bangles

Have you noticed the appetite many celebrities have for stacking their wrists up with bracelets and bangles? Even Gok Wan throws lots of bangles on each of his models arms before he sends them down the catwalk.

A statement bangle or stacks of bracelets can add spice to any look.  Even if you’re not the bangle type there are lots bracelets and cuffs to choose from.

Regarding which design and style to choose, it’s up to you. Wooden, ethnic, enamel, metallic and bright colours are all big right now. Another bangle trend we’ve been spotting is wide pop coloured bangles with embellished Swarovski Crystals which cost €50 each from Lara boutique, Dame Lane, Dublin 2.

Eva Mendes

As Eva Mendes demonstrates at the launch of the new Calvin Klein bra collection at Harrods in London – adding a bangle or two can make her outfit. It looks like she just threw them on, but  her Kara Ross stacked bangles and cocktail ring add some glamour to the structured sheath dress.  You can see that they are statement pieces in themselves.

The cost of attempting to replicate this look is tough but we are delighted to bring you some affordable bangles to jazz up your summer outfits:

These bright bangles come in a 4 piece set (€8) from the queen of bangles and cuffs – Accessorize

Choose a wide bangle like the Kara Ross one nearest Eva Mendes hand – an Angie Gooderham bangle from House of Fraser, €73 is a fab alternative. At present there is only one House of Fraser in Ireland and it’s in Dundrum Town Centre.

For more of a Grecian look, go for this wide woven metallic cuff from New Look (€12).

Enjoy stacking it up girls!
