Banging Bangles!

Nothing adds sass and pizazz to an outfit like a unique bangle. I usually like to wear this accessory with a cute dress or tank top and jeans during the spring and summer months for a pulled together, yet carefree look.

They instantly add punch to an otherwise boring outfit. Plus, they work well for both day and night. Depending on your mood, you can throw on a whimsical bold, multi-colored bangle or if you're feeling a bit more on the conversative side, opt for a more solid subtle shade. The designs, styles and materials of bangles are endless.

Whether you pile them on a la 80s style or wear them individually, a bangle bracelet is the perfect arm candy!

Hi,
Bangles have come a long way! I do like the colors and fun shapes; however, I would probably only rock the gold bangles.
Thanks for this post.

I must admit I love a nice bangle any day, and the ones that you have displayed are crute!Hmmm..... I can go with the silver or wooden one, and you said I could get them from where again?

I love them. Bangles and spring dresses go together so well. I've been looking for some. Unfortunatly, most of what I'm finding are too small for me Ugh. The search will go on.

It's almost as if you are reading my mind with the stuff you posted lately. Bangles are another thing I thought I would try this spring just to try something new. Although I haven't found any cute ones yet I'm sure I will the closer spring gets.

Messages with bangles, good for starting conversations.
I used to wear lots of bangles and I stop for no reason.
So I'm happy to find out they are back.

@Mimi -- Bangles with messages are definitely conversation pieces!! That's why I love Jessica Kagan Cushman's line. She puts a fresh new twist on a classic accessory.

Oh I live for bangles! I really want a logo Chanel one but the message ones are cool too. I love over-stacking them!

@Ananda -- Thanks so much!! I welcome new readers! :-)

Girls, you must be kidding. I would never wear a bangle with a message. But suit yourself! That's just waaayyy too much for a VBG like myself. However, the others are adorable. I prefer the smaller more feminine ones. :-)

BGG, I just discovered your blog. I love it and these bangles. I especially love the ones from banana republic and forever 21. Thank you for turning me on to something new!

I like to wear bangles with my Indian attire. I feel like a Bollywood star in them and I always get compliments.
