Ask Your Outfit for the Right Bangle
Before you commence trying all of them on, you need to set aside the ones that can go with the colors and theme of your ensemble. Not only will this save a lot of your time, but it will also make the decision way easier. You don’t want to get stuck in the “I can’t decide between this one and that one” conundrum.
What’s your style and what do you want your arm party to look like? Based on this information along with the features of the outfit you’ve chosen, you can pick the right bangles or bracelets that beautify your overall look. Without further ado, let’s take a look at what you can pick from.

If you’re not a fan of heavy jewelry and prefer light jewelry on your hands, thin bangles might be for you. Easy to style and carry, thin bangles and bracelets can embellish most of your outfits and can be the perfect choice when you’re picking something that you’ll be wearing every day.
You can pick bangles and bracelets made using different materials and team them up with your outfit. Thin bangles made using gold and silver are the safest options and you can never go wrong with them. They can give you the look that you want and can easily become your everyday hand jewelry.
If you want something with more glitter, diamonds are your best friend. Add a touch of grandeur to your look with thin bangles encrusted with polki (uncut diamonds) and you’ll be able to steal the show with ease. You can always go for something else such as gemstone-encrusted bracelets and bangles that go with your outfit’s colors or pearls to create an exciting look.
Kada, or a thick bangle, is the perfect piece of hand jewelry when it comes to a wedding, sangeet, or mehendi party. A kada can add more depth to your bridal look and make it more striking. You can easily make it your statement piece and make your job of stacking bracelets easier by pairing it with other thin bangles or bracelets.
Kada is usually worn on one hand and can be made of various materials. While thick bangles and bracelets made in metals such as gold and silver are popular and great for creating a regal bridal look, a kada made in gold and encrusted with diamonds, pearls, or other gemstones can be your anchor piece. You can add to the party with some thin bracelets and you have yourself a masterpiece.
Going with a kada made in gold using the filigree gold jewelry-making technique is sure to add some grace to your ensemble. If you’re looking for a statement piece that can carry the look alone, you can pick a thick bracelet or bangle such as the Varna bangle which is accentuated with gemstones and polki, and prepare yourself for all the attention you’ll be receiving.
Hathphools are bracelets connected to a ring by a chain or a cord. This “flower for the hand” can make up for an interesting look. It is a popular choice and is often worn by brides in India.
Hathphools are different and unique. The brilliant combo of a ring and a bracelet is sure to adorn every outfit and bring out its best. If you’re going for a minimal look, you can pick a simple and elegant hathphool bracelet made in sterling silver or pearls. If you want something louder, a kundan hathphool might be perfect for the job.
A hathphool can beautify almost every outfit. Sarees and salwar kameez can be embellished with hathphools made using enamel. This way you can add more flavor and color to your traditional Indian look. Lehengas usually go well with pearl and kundan hathphool bracelets, but you’re free to mix and match and find your own look. For Western outfits, you can pick a hathphool bracelet such as the Neeti Hathphool that carries a mix of traditional and modern elements.

When it comes to creating looks, there are no rules. You can create an exciting ensemble with a mix of metals. Going with the classic gold-silver team is one of the many options. This bracelet combo can add more luxe and elegance to your outfits and can also pair up with your watch.
You can easily make the metal fusion theme work with black. This way your arm party will stand out and add a pop of shine and texture. Your gold and silver bracelets can also pair well with grey, white, and beige. Create a cohesive look by pairing a thick gold bracelet with thin silver bangles, or a chunky silver cuff with delicate gold bracelets.
