What are you waiting for? It is time dress your arm in some ‘arresting’ 2013 bracelet fashion.

Bracelet Trends for 2013

1.  Cuff Bracelets for 2013

Cuff bracelets are very fashionable in 2013. If you never liked stacking up multiple bracelets on your arm (the earlier trend), you now have an option. The cuff bracelets unveiled by several big fashion names such as Lenora Dame and Pyrrha are thicker than conventional bracelets. You slip on one, and you are all done. The cuffs are available as plain solids, and some cuffs sport intricate designs. I personally like the solid cuffs. What is your preference?

2. Color Blocking for Bracelets in 2013

While color blocking was a popular trend in apparels for 2013, Fendi has incorporated this trend into their spring summer 2013 bracelet collection. Solid blacks and whites were observed in several Fendi bracelets. The designer took the color blocking trend several notches higher in the style department by including solid spikes against a contrasting solid background. And at the other extreme, single color bracelets (black) were also part of the collection. The best effect is obtained by combining the various designs together as one of these pictures shows.

3. Floral Bracelet Designs for 2013

Prada has creatively incorporated the floral motif for its 2013 bracelet designs. And trust Prada to do it in style. The simple floral design has been presented in various creative formats in the collection. There is a ‘link’ design embellished with tiny studded flowers. Or you can opt for simple sleek floral design on a base cream bracelet. The pride of the collection, though, are two designs, comprising floral ‘circles’, linked to each other by a sparkling band of gemstones. One bracelet is white and other is black and they stand out in the photos below.

4. Beaded and Layered Look for Bracelets 2013

Beaded bracelets are a staple trend in bracelet fashion. In the M.Cohen spring 2013 collection, the beaded bracelet look was made even more creative by combining bracelets with colored beads and plain beads together and layering them up. Made quite an eye catching spectacle for sure. And remember what we said earlier about unleashing the free sprit within you. This is exactly what we were talking about.

For those of you, who don’t want to completely unleash the free spirit within (with the M.Cohen bracelets), but perhaps, want to let go just a bit, these bracelets are perfect. They are casual without being wild.

6. Gemstone and Marble Bracelets for 2013

Some of the most beautiful bracelet looks for 2013 included gemstones and marble stones. Gemstones add the shine and sparkle and enhance the look of your bracelet. And when gemstones are set in a creative pattern, they further embellish the overall look. Renowned jewelry designer Lele Sadoughi has created this exquisite scarab style Egyptian bracelet design that appears luxurious and exclusive all at the once.

Another masterpiece from her is the solid column slider bracelet with marbles. Now who would have thought stones on the arm would be stylish? Perhaps Wilma Flintstone was the inspiration?
