--- Bangles and Bracelets at a Glance ---Bangles are essentially bracelets, only that so many of them can be worn at a time to dress up the wrists. As I've learned by looking around on the Internet, the big difference between bangles and bracelets is that bracelets are flexible, while bangles are not. Bangles are perfectly circular. Let's see a few examples of both bangles and bracelets. Here are some pictures for you all...
^ from: www.amazon.com - Here is a set of bangles. They don't have to be expensive or fancy to be stylish.
^ from: www.shopbop.com - Mixed bangles can be just as expressive as any average set of bangles.
When wearing bangles, a few of them or a lot of them can be worn at once. One will mostly see at least five bangles being worn around the wrist of some females who wear bangles. Bangles are normally lightweight and are usually either metallic or plastic.
Bracelets.Bracelets don't have to be the of the expensive variety. You have your share of plastic bracelets that can still be very fun to wear. To prove the point:
^ from: www.amazon.com - Very casual wristband bracelet. You may even have some of these yourself.
^ from: www.amazon.com - Several friendship bracelets around one's arm. Friendship bracelets can be fun to wear and even fun to share.
^ from: www.nordstrom.com - Bracelets can be either classy or casual.
^ from: www.amazon.com - Here is a beautiful tennis bracelet for stylish ladies. I'm sure most of my female audience is probably doing the nudge to their boyfriend/fiancé/husband to get one of these as a gift. ;)
^ from: www.amazon.com - A single big bracelet can make a big style statement.
Bracelets are bolder and more expressive than a set of bangles. One or more bracelets can be worn to make as much of a statement as possible. They are as great for dressing your wrists with as with any set of bangles.
No matter what, both bangles and bracelets are charming and expressive to wear around your wrists. So go ahead and find some bangles to dress up your wrists!
--- What to Wear These With? ---Since we are talking about bangles and bracelets, this is obviously meant for warm weather times or warm days. Bangles and bracelets can mostly be worn with almost anything and with almost any outfit. Bangles are very much for casual outfits. If you want to glam things up, try wearing a lovely bracelet or several bracelets.
