Last week we shared some tips on how to layer your necklaces. This week’s trend alert is knowing the art of layering your bold bangles – covering everything from bracelets to watches:

bracelets-fredmeyerjewelers1. Choose two or three (or four or five) of your best skinny bracelets. Don’t forgetour rule about breaking the rules—the more metals and textures, the better!

2. Go big by adding a large cuff or bangle. A word to the wise: make sure this layer has room to move, especially if you spend most of your day on a computer.
