There No Such Thing As Too Many Bracelets

Arm Candy


Matt Burke

As the weather warms back up, bold bracelets and watches are once again turning into a delicious craze. Pieces featuring metallics, neutrals and bursts of color are popping up in all of Tallahassee’s locally owned boutiques, artisan gift shops and jewelry stores. Looking for a reason to indulge? This trend enhances just about any ensemble. From the workweek to week’s end, it’s one of the most versatile accessories to date. “Lets say you have a white, crisp, collared shirt on,” imagined Michelle Hart, store manager at Fab’rik. “That little edge (of arm candy) is just going to give you that pop of color.” To achieve this style, layer bracelets, bangles and watches for a custom boho-chic look. “Bracelets look best in threes,” instructed Dorothy Vodica, owner of The Gem Collection. “Pretty, feminine bracelets can be layered with a sporty watch for a casual, daytime look.”
