Apple Watch + Arm Candy = an easy way to get that daily dose of happy! Apple watches are the “it” watch these days. And they are SO fun to accessorize. There are so many fabulous band options out there – you could have one for every day of the year! When putting your Apple Watch arm party together, our biggest advice is to not think about it too much! In fact, the more you mix metals, color, patterns, shapes, and widths, the better!
A simple, solid colored Apple Watch band gives ultimate flexibility on the rest of your arm party. Katie’s all gold and black beaded bracelet look here is classic, sophisticated, and seamless.
Apple Watch Arm Party…Keeping It Simple
A trend that we are seeing – and by the way also LOVING – right now are the colorful enamel tile stack bracelets. This concept would be SO fun with a solid colored watch band. And this is such a great, inexpensive way to add some cheer to your days at home. This set of three from Amazon is fabulous – wear all three at once, choose one or two and then mix in some other pieces, or better yet, wear all three AND add in more. Again, don’t overthink it….go big or go home. A metal chain cuff bracelet and a link bracelet with a charm would be a fun addition to these colorful tile bracelets!
Playing with Prints
Another route to take on your watch band is to choose a fun print… And why not make it animal print?! We love this particular one in leopard print. Layer a few mixed metal bangles into your arm party like those in this Buddha girl stack. We LOVE Buddha Girl’s All Weather line of bangles. They are perfect for the beach and pool because they can withstand getting wet and all the sunscreen! And this particular stack is perfect because it has different shades in it – fun to wear all together, or to mix and match single bracelets into other arm parties. Add in a black round bead bracelet like the one in this trio (sidenote: this stack of three would also be fabulous with a solid colored band like the one above) and some texture with a gold stretch bracelet. And if you love color, add in a pop of Spring cheerfulness with these pretty orange beaded bracelets.
How fabulous is this leather wrap band with studs?? It makes quite the splash on its own, but we can also have some fun with arm candy for sure! We love a monochromatic look in rose gold, pinks, and peaches. Throw in a rose gold beaded wrap bracelet and bangle. And how about a blush pink round bead bracelet and a pretty engraved beaded bracelet?! Finish off the look with a pretty mixed disc stretch bracelet in golds and peach hues.
Murfreesboro stylist Jenny Grubb found a gorgeous, dressy Apple Watch band in silver and gold on Amazon that we of course all fell in love with. It looks just like a band you would wear on a regular watch! We love her metal monochromatic look here for a dressy and sophisticated look.
Dress It Up
Yes, this watch band is perfect for your next date night or business event, but it can also be enjoyed for more casual looks as well. For more of an everyday look, we love the idea of mixing a few metal pieces with interest and texture like this gold bow cuff and cluster bracelet with a few colorful beaded pieces in the turquoise family!
