In 2011, when the term ‘Arm Candy’ was coined we saw an array of styles featuring the stacking of bracelets; whether it was wide cuffs or multiple bangles—we had seen it all! First, there were spikes, then came along beads, and then there were the very famous game-changing Cartier LOVE Bracelets. We saw an accessory epidemic arise and boy, did it take the fashion world by storm.

Fast forward to 2017 and the arm candy game has taken on a new persona. Those days of stacking numerable bracelets and cuffs are long gone. Now it’s all about these four trends that provide great clues on what you should shop for.
Christian Koban, £23398.05
It’s true; diamonds are a girl’s best friend. And there’s no better way to flaunt them than on your arm. If you’re in the mood to splurge, this beauty by Christian Koban should be on your to-buy list.
Monica Vinader, £350
Minimalism hasn’t looked this good before. Monica Vinader aces elegant designs with sleek finishes and no-fuss accessories. And silver is always a good addition to your jewellery collection because it’s so versatile.
Natalie B, £30.32
Sometimes a single cuff is all you need to ace that arm candy game. And there’s nothing more boho than a brass cuff, which you can easily pair with your maxi dresses and sun hats.
Here’s a twist like no other! Tribal print in an array of colours topped with a large stone makes for the perfect boho statement cuff.
A beaded loop bracelet like this one from Swarovski will give your leather jacket and boots combo just the right amount of bling. You wouldn’t need to add any other accessory for this look.
Here’s another loop bangle by Swarovski that will add that extra edge to your rocker-chic outfit. Swarovski’s Crystal Rock technique makes this a visual treat and it looks even more beautiful in the jewel-toned emerald green.
