While wearing bracelets on both of your wrists may seem like a fashion faux pa, it’s quite the opposite. It all comes down to how you wear your bracelets. There are just a few things to keep in mind if you want to pull off a classy look.
Below, we’ve put together a few tips for wearing bracelets and other varieties on both wrists.
1. Don’t Be Afraid To Mix
Bracelets come in all kinds of styles, sizes and colors. It’s fine to mix and match when you’re sporting bracelets on both wrists. The trick is to make sure that the bracelets complement one another.
2. Mixing Metals
It used to be a no-no to mix metals, but these days it’s fashionable. Just be careful of which metal types you mix. Platinum, rose gold and sterling silver are pretty, but they might not complement one another when you’re stacking bracelets – unless the style of the bracelets is similar. Try mixing one type of metal with something like beads or pearls for a stylish look.
3. Consider What You Wear
It’s fun to pick bracelets that go with your outfit, so pick colors that are like what you’re wearing. It doesn’t need to be all solid colors. You could choose bracelets with little pops of color that complement your outfit.
4. You Don’t Have To Match
On the other hand, you don’t have to match your outfit and bracelets if you don’t want to. You can make your jewelry stand out more by choosing something different. Just make sure the colors or styles don’t clash horribly.
5. Keep Things Simple
If you’re wearing a simple, elegant outfit, choose simple bracelets for your wrists. A classic look is to pair simple gold or silver bracelets with a plain dress. One of those handmade sterling silver jewelry would be perfect.
6. Create A Point Of Interest
When it comes to wearing stacks of bracelets on both wrists, choose one that’ll stand out above all the others and make it your focal point. For instance, a chunkier bracelet mixed amongst thinner bracelets works well. The same goes for wearing one vibrant bracelet with more subdued shades of other bracelets.
Dress Both Wrists Up With Bracelets
You might have been told that wearing bracelets on both wrists is a fashion no-no, but we say go for it. Yes, it’s easy enough to overdo it, but get it right and it can really enhance your overall style.
Whether you’re trying to achieve a simple, laid-back look or a more classy, sleek appearance, you can absolutely make bracelets look great on both wrists. Just don’t overdo it. Get your stacking and thickness ratios right.
Remember, too, to give careful thought to the metals, thicknesses and colors of your bracelets when mixing and matching them on your wrists – you don’t want the overall result to overpower your style.
Go for it. Wear those bracelets. With the tips we’ve given you above, we’re sure you’ll rock the look no matter what the occasion might be.

I didn’t have any idea anybody had a problem with wearing bracelets on both wrists. I think humans should just wear it however they want to wear it. It’s their wrists after all. Decorate them both if you want. The other wrist might feel lonely ;).
I completely agree with you 🙂
I often will wear a stack of (3 to 4) Bakelite vintage bracelets on hand, and a few bangles on the other with my watch. The click/clacking and the bright colors just bring me joy. My advice is style yourself in a way that brings you joy.
