This L.A. Trend Seems So Basic, But We’re On Board
Stone, spikes and even diamonds look casually cool
Worn individually or by the armful, the bead bracelet is the quiet hero of every Cali girl’s casual-chic aesthetic, and for good reason: It's easy to wear and comes at every price point. Here are some of our favorites and how to wear one (or tons), whether you’re heading to yoga or Nobu.
Go for Sporty
A little bit of tassel along with pastel stones takes your yoga outfit to a new spiritual level. Strung on elastic bands, these bracelets are easy to pull off for the actual, you know, workout.
White sea pearls--worn around your wrist with a glittering Hamsa hand for protection--are the modern version of your grandmother’s pearls.
Wear it Classic
Wear your heart on your sleeve with traditional malas (Hindu prayer beads) that can represent anything from “acceptance and love” (lepidolite and green ammonite) to “amplification and healing” (quartz and sandalwood).
