The first word in Christian Dior’s The Little Dictionary Of Fashion is “accent”, and he defines it as “…a little personal touch which makes a dress your own.” By that definition, charm bracelets are the ultimate accent piece, because they allow the wearer to express themselves through details big and small.
In the ‘90s and early aughts, charm bracelets were the most important baubles in our jewelry boxes. Birthdays and holidays practically revolved around adding charms to our chunky Juicy Couture chains, and if you didn’t have one dangling from your wrist, you were definitely missing out.
The trend eventually faded in favor of daintier, simpler pieces, but as most things in the fashion world do, it’s officially made a comeback. This time, though, they’re less about collecting memories and more about showcasing your personal style. And fortunately for us, today’s charm bracelets run the gamut from dainty chains to chunky cable bracelets, so the opportunity to find one that feels like you is greater than ever before.
