Fashion Must Haves A-Z - Bangles

Arm Candy! It’s a must have when it comes to the accessories division. When styling an outfit you have to think about what accessories you need to incorporate into your look and arm candy should always be on your check off list.
For today’s must have item from A-Z are hot topic is bangles.
Fun fact: Bakelite Bangles
Bakelite was one of the first materials that were used to make costume jewelry. Women wore all color Bakelite bangles to add color and interest into a look back in the day. Bakelite is a rare material that is no longer in use when making jewelry; it was a lot like the plastic we use today. The reason designers and manufactures loved this product was it looked like more expensive materials and could be dyed many colors. Bakelite hit a bump in the road when World War II started because all the factories where forced to make war materials. When the war was over Bakelite was taken over by a cheaper plastic that could be used for jewelry. Today, jewelry made out of Bakelite is highly collectable.

Who new that arm candy was in style in the 1920s. Trend always come and go!
Bangles should be a staple in every girls closet. They are available in many meteruials. They can be bold, glamourous, fun, flirty, glitz, or classic. What I love about the bangle is they are perfect for any gal.

It is the unseen, unforgettable, ultimate accessory of fashion that heralds your arrival and prolongs your departure.
