Where did the stacking bracelet trend come from, anyway? Read our guide to learn about this thrilling technique and all the fashionable combinations awaiting you.

The Possible Origins of the Stacking Bracelet Trend

As the saying goes: there’s nothing new under the sun! So much of the fashion we know and love today is a remix of styles that came before. The stacking bracelet trend is no different.

Bloggers, designers, and fashionistas have been stacking bracelets for the past several years. This fashion trend has roots in several ancient cultures, from ancient India to ancient Egypt. Not only are stacked bracelets popular, stacked rings and bracelets also have widespread appeal.

Tips for Stacking Your Bracelets

Not sure where to get started with so many options? We don’t like choice fatigue, either. 

Stacking your bracelets and getting an impressive result depends on the following artistic foundations:

  • Composition (aka how different items are arranged in relation to each other)
  • Style (which fashion styles you’re taking inspiration from)
  • Color scheme (the specific blend of colors you choose for the entire look)
  • Texture (aka rough vs smooth, matte vs shiny, patterned versus simple)
  • Function (you want to make sure you can wear this look all day long!)

Gold Bangles and Fewer Accessories for a Minimalist Look

Do you prefer minimalist styles with fewer bells and whistles? We’re fond of using thin gold bracelets and silvery bangles for this stacked style.

Minimalism stresses shape language and a single focal point over all else. You can still try beaded bracelets or different colors as you build your stack. Another fun combo you can try is adding a more festive bracelet in-between your simpler ones.

Minimalist bracelet stacks seem like an oxymoron, but that’s far from the truth! Stacking your simple bracelets allows you to explore the boundaries of your style without going too far.

The top items we recommend for your elegantly minimalist bracelet stack are:

Embrace Complexity With Complementary Colors and Shapes

You're in good hands if you’re on the other end of the fashion spectrum. We love how easy it is to build complex works of art on your wrists with a stacked bracelet!

Believe it or not, you can mix several styles and still make them look cohesive. Complex stacked bracelets can still have a sense of harmony when linked by color scheme or by style. For example, you can stack three bracelets with three different types of beads, but similar colors. Likewise, you can have bracelets with matching beads but completely different colors.

Complex bracelet stacks are boho chic personified. These combos represent a free spirit unconstrained by conventional mixing and matching.

Our recommendations for your complex and whimsical bracelet stack are:
