Arm Candy Pose Off: Cute Bracelets, Bangles and Rings
While the term 'Arm Candy' usually brings to mind images of P.Y.T. (i.e. pretty young things) draped all over someone's arm on the red carpet, this week we're posing off with another kind of arm candy: baubles and bracelets and bangles (oh my!).
We heard about the so-called 'Arm Party' from the Man Repeller blog, referring to the statement-making and unrestrained stacking of all your favourite pieces at once.
What's fabulous about this trend is that you can layer inexpensive individual pieces together for a convincing off-duty model look with some major street styling skills. The look can be done in a few different ways and using some tricks, is a statement anyone can pull off.
Of course, we decided to try it ourselves and hit the Posing Wall (because that's just how we roll).
Ever the minimalist when it comes to creating a statement, Lorna sticks to a palette of silver and black and keeps her bracelets all around the same size. She uses different shades to keep it in the family without sacrificing the style.
Michelle's cute and whimsical side shines through with her quirky stacking of bangles and cuffs. We love how she pairs printed pieces with beaded ones and uses basic bracelets as filler. She ties everything together with a gorgeous and chunky cocktail ring.
Alexandra loves to use big and bold pieces to stand out. She uses bracelets, bangles and cuffs of varying sizes and colours. A braided friendship bracelet in green stands out against the warmer colour of gold and the reds and yellows are brought back down with her cocktail rings.
Mandy focuses all the attention onto her oversized face watch. She keeps it cute and fun with a brightly coloured braided bracelet along with some charms and chains. She mixes her arm candy up with metals, beads and fabric pieces for variety.
Who's arm candy are you coveting? Let us know whose style you'd most likely sport, and we'll award one lucky commenter with a beauty prize! Hurry - contest ends February 19th.

I like Michelle's best.. it's the ring that speaks to me.
I loveeee Mandy's look! I often do a similar look with my Michael Kors watch.
I love these looks! My favourite is Lorna's arm candy only because the colours will go with everything. However, I adore that lip ring on Alexandra. That is so cute!!
I love Michelle's style! Very cute and playful!!
