Some women love wearing jewelry, some are never seen wearing as much as a ring on their finger. But one of the easiest ways to dress up an outfit or add some jewelry is by wearing a simple,small bangle on your wrist.
History of the Bangle
This trend for summer is not new to the fashion world and has in fact, Egyptian and Indian roots. Women would usually wear this bracelet in multiples for an elegant look. In many cultures, the knocking sounds that these bracelets made was seen as a way to ward off evil spirits.
For the Punjab Indian there is a saying that a woman wearing glass bangles will be married and when the last bangle breaks, the honeymoon is over!
Today the bangles are worn all up the arm in a variety of colors and styles. Some are thick and colorful and some are as simple as a thin, gold bangle.
Today, the bangles are extremely popular, especially for people who love the Bohemian style look, as featured in my previous blog. They resemble a free spirit and are the simplest way to dress up an outfit with jewelry. Here are some of your favorite celebrities wearing bangles!
As one fashion tip, try mixing and matching your circle bangles with square ones for a fun, playful look.
I’m loving this trend and love the Boho style they give any outfit…..and of course, who doesn’t love the clicking sound of all your bangles stacked up high on your arm?! It’s a show stopper for sure!
Until next time…LOVES
