After last year's polar vortex, it's safe to say we've all mastered layering like a pro. But, this necessary sartorial skill doesn't end there: Stacking on layers of jewelry — arm adornments in particular — can be just as much of an outfit maker. After all, what else can totally transform a T-shirt and jeans like an assemblage of wrist accoutrements? So, to prove the power of the arm party, we sought out the best in the game.
In our Style Stack Instagram contest with Nixon, we asked you to show us your "style stacks" for a chance to win a new Nixon watch and $1,500 worth of jewelry, handpicked by our editors. And, the 'grams that came through our #NixonStyleStack feed — everything from the delicate and dainty to the bold and chunky — had us rethinking our own metallic mash-ups.
Now that the contest has come to a close, we've rounded up our favorites for some bejeweled inspiration. Click through to get a closer look at the winning wrist candy, plus 15 honorable mentions and our tips for snagging their style. Let's layer on that bling, shall we?
