It seems that we will never outgrow our childhood loves – dressing up; dreaming of Prince Charming; and friendship bracelets. Yes, it’s officially, those colourful bracelets that we all spent hours knotting to give our best friends as a show of BFF-ness have been in vogue these few seasons and continue to be a firm favourite.
Street style photographers like Tommy Ton and Phil Oh have captured the outfit details of fashion insiders and stylish individuals out on the streets. Amidst the countless arm parties that have appeared on various street style blogs and even magazine features, the good old handmade friendship bracelet makes more than just repeat appearances, looking right at home on everyone’s wrists, whatever age.
Well, if your DIY skills have gone rusty or can’t find the friendship bracelets from school days, these grown-up alternatives will be your newfound favourites. All our picks are as colourful and fun as the matching rainbow friendship bracelets your bestie and you sported when you were both students, and the cherry on the top – the hardware elements translate these friendship bracelets into statement-making accessories, and there’s nothing juvenile about that.
