Introducing the Arm Party

By Elspeth Nielson
4th May 2012

Feeling a little low? Got the work blues? Need a little pick me up? Then let me introduce you to a little something called an Arm Party. An Arm Party essentially entails piling on, without too much thought or reason; a multitude of pretty trinkets, cuffs, fine gold charms and forgotten treasures found lurking in the dark crevasses of your jewellery box. It's the perfect seasonal style update and a great excuse to take your entire accessories collection out for a bit of a spin.

Don't be afraid to dazzle with studs, hang tough in leather, or rock a little animal print. The more hectic the better when it comes to an Arm Party. If you're feeling a little low on the shiny new accessories front, we've rounded up a few of our favourite pieces to get you started.
