I confess, I have never paid much attention to bracelets. I just don’t care for them. I went from high school to college to law school, typing all the way, and found that bracelets just felt weird against my wrists as I rested my fingers on the keys. And sometimes, depending on the bracelet, it actually hurt. But now that I’m no longer in school full time and constantly glued to my computer, I see no reason to continue to eschew this awesome accessory.

Bracelets and bangles are fun and festive, and a really great way to instantly add some interest to an otherwise ho-hum outfit. Plus, they’re great for distracting bawling infants. Sometimes they work on dogs, but I’ve generally found that dogs don’t care one way or another. Don’t let this dissuade you: It’s the dogs’ loss.

For today, I’ve put together a collection of pretty bracelets that are sure to add some flash and fun to your business casual outfits. Let’s take a look!

I love the combination of gold and that soft aquamarine, and I like the block pattern here.

Of course, you might want something a little more … edgy. In which case, this black and green lace cuff would fit the bill nicely.

I already know how corny this sounds, but with this bracelet, it would look like you were wearing a beautiful sunburst, right on your wrist.

What I like about this is that they’re bangles – so you’ve already added some movement and interest – and they are also varied in style. I’m a big fan of mixing and matching textures and colors if you’re going to go the bangle route.

I like these for the same reason. Also, I could never turn down a turquoise-and-silver combination.

The obligatory turquoise beads. They’re still in style and holding strong, and they just go with everything, don’t they? Such versatility.

Now this – this is just kind of fun and unexpected.

I’m a big fan of leather cuffs mostly because of the fact that they’re comfortable. They don’t poke or bruise or jab. They just kind of lay there softly against your skin. I’m a big fan of not being jabbed by my accessories.

Now, this is just kind of … easy. You really can’t go wrong with it. I have a silver cuff bracelet like this, and when I’m dressed and ready to go, but still feel that something’s somehow missing, and perhaps my arms are a little bare, I just grab it and stick it on and go. It’s an almost thoughtless way of adding some interest to your look.

And these are for when you just want to have some fun. Seriously, check out those bright colors and sparkly details. For work, make sure this is with a simple business casual outfit – such as a white blouse and chocolate trousers. These provide all the ‘pop’ you need!

And this is for when you want a bracelet with teeth. (I am so sorry. That was such a lame joke. I’ll see myself out.)
