Watch

Incorporate your watch to the arm party since it gives a classic feel to your accessories. Just remember, you don’t have to spend a small fortune on a good-looking watch!

DIY

Friendship bracelets are a great way to bring a personalised touch to any type of arm candy. You can make your own with thread, beads and any additional accessories and can even gift matching ones to your best pals.

Rings

Experiment with rings and hand-chains to bring a modern take to your look. Not only are these pieces easy to wear, but they are classic and will last the distance. If you’re into silver, invest in a few custom pieces which will grow with your look.

Colour

A pop of colour is another essential part of layering your look since metals can sometimes feel too heavy and industrial. A fun beaded bracelet or bangle is the perfect way to start wearing this look.
