Looking back on little history, bracelets originally became a part of Indian tradition. As in many places the number and type of bangles worn by a woman denote her marital status. In Sikhism, a bracelet is one of the mandatory articles known as the Five Virtues. Although now they are used more commonly as an ornament apart from the religious sentiment.

Similarly, you can choose trinkets according to your personality:) Even the Illuminati eye trinket:P These look cute with any outfit. If it has few trinkets, then wear it for any casual outing. If it’s filled, then wear it when you go for some special occasions.

The popular Italian charm bracelets have each charm separate and are interchangeable. It lies flat against the wrist, interlocking to the next charm. It is kind of like a watch. It will be perfect gift with a message or a small quote. Or perhaps just personalize it with your initials!

5)Sports Bracelet

Ah here they come! A.k.a wristbands. The ones I was talking bout in the start. These rubber or cloth wristbands shout out loud, “cool”. The particular favorite of crazy fan girls who want to show their loyalty towards their boy band singers to the world. Not just bands but even brands like Nike etc. These bands make a statement and people religiously wear it everyday. Fortunately it goes with casual wear but do a favor to fashion by not wearing them with magnificent wonderful dresses to a party! It messes up your ensemble!
