Every certified fashion addict will know, slipping on a bit of arm bling is the way to take a simple outfit from drab to drool-worthy.
Whether you’re a sucker for a statement cuff, or prefer the finer things in life, an ‘arm party’, as aptly dubbed by one very famous blogger, is the key to getting that accessory high we experience when we spot a fashion month street style star with an impressive armful, dashing through a crowded Milanese side street ever so nonchalantly.
This week’s Steep vs. Cheap option comes courtesy of the most successful form of embellishment to hit the fashion circuit, like, ever: spikes. Be it on shoulders, down the side of your favourite jeans or on sneakers, a spike is always welcome.
So, when we spotted this week’s bank-breaker, the Joomi Lim Metal Luxe Spike Bracelet, it’s safe to say our inner jewellery junkie jumped for joy! Adding a jolt of tough-luxe to the sweetest of outfits, this industrial bracelet of heavy chain links and polished studs is perfect if you’re not a fan of overly feminine jewellery. But cashing in at £70, it won’t leave your pocket looking too pretty…
Still love it too much but don’t have the cash to splash? Fear not, because e-tail haven, Asos, has just the pocket-friendly option that’ll deliver all the stylish glory of its high-end counterpart, without the painful price tag. Coming in at £10, the Asos Jewelled Spike Bracelet will leave you with enough change to click home a few more (read: unnecessary-but-totally-worth-it) goodies!
