Friendship bracelets are making a major comeback. Design*Sponge just featured a bracelet-inspired, chevron, chair cushion. Designers have declared bright bursts of neons as part of spring's palette and Refinery 29 marked it as one of the happiest, most playful trends to come along in recent months. Yes, these colorful, woven symbols of summer memories and keep in touch (KIT!) promises get a chic makeover that are anything but adolescent.
This wide bracelet has some familiar chevron details, but the contrast colors of the center panel, pastel stones and beading are like welcoming a new friend. Nice and structured, this cuff will stand the test of time like...do I even need to say it? @ freepeople.com
Mixing thick, embroidery thread with metal chains is the trendiest update to ye ol' friendship bracelet this season; the weaving of materials are equal parts girly and tough. I love the braiding and surprise diamond charm at the clasp- it looks like a shooting comet. @ etsy.com
Dannijo can do no wrong in my mind. Their classic meets tribal meets elegant desgins never cease to inspire me. Simple and classic with a little twist, this bracelet will layer nicely with your current collection. Plus that polka dot blouse winking in the background are pretty darn awesome. @ shopbop.com
Finding a true friend is the best dream one could catch. I've always always been fond of the shape and tradition of dream catchers, so I was thrilled to come across this interpretation on Etsy. These bracelets capture the delicate, thin weaves of summers gone by. @ etsy.com
Holst + Lee 's entire collection makes me weak in the knees. From the magnetic closure to its emobssing to the bright colors, everything feels fresh and joyous. Drawing inspiration as varied as the streets of NYC, snakes and Mexican culture (to name a few) any piece from their collection will spiff up the most basic tee, the boldest dress and add a dash of happy to your daily rotation. Why not start by rewarding your wrist? @ shopbop.com
