 Now I'll be the first to admit, my High school mornings consisted of stacking on layer after layer of bracelets. Hell, it's probably why I was late so often - but it looked awesome! It was also probably the only redeeming quality of my High school style. 

We've all seen our favorite bloggers (See: The Man Repeller) and fashion icons sporting this janglin' trend. (Also, insert Janglin - by Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros) Although it looks deceptively easy enough to put together a cohesive collection of bracelets, it can sometimes be tricky. 

1. Don't be afraid of mixing materials! Cloth, metal, beaded, or rope! 

2. Don't be afraid to mix metals. Some of you may be OCD, and can't stand to do this, but I love it.  If you're a little weary of this idea, try something simple like mixing silver with a rose gold, if yellow gold and silver is too much for you.

3.  ADD A WATCH! It's really that simple!

4. Make a few beaded bracelets, friendship bracelets or use some random materials you have laying around the house like strips of leather or twine. 

5. One hand or two? Some people choose to bling out only one arm. If you do chose to deck out your other wrist, I'd suggest one side to be more minimalistic.
