In college, most students find that their favorite go-to outfit is a pair of sweatpants and a free T-shirt. While this outfit is great for an 8 AM lecture, sometimes it's nice to dress up or accessorize. That’s why this article is all about cute stackable bracelets that dress up your outfits and don’t break the bank. 

These bracelets look perfect with everything from ripped jeans to pajama pants. So if you feel like your closet needs an upgrade, save yourself the money and start by purchasing some bracelets. Sometimes all you need is the perfect accessories to make your clothes look like new outfits. 

First, we will introduce OCM’s best bracelets. OCM offers the popular Pura Vida Bracelets. Your purchase keeps job security for artisans around the world. Surplus profits received by Pura Vida have been donated to several different charities. These beautiful bracelets are so simple yet promote a bigger message. 

DIY Bracelets

If you prefer more of a customized style we will also recommend some of the best bracelets offered on Etsy. Purchasing from Etsy also helps to promote small businesses around the United States. With that being said, whatever bracelet you decide to purchase will be supporting a great small business. Any of these gorgeous bracelets could be used to dress up your favorite outfits, or a perfect gift for a special someone in your life. 


Pura Vida Bracelets

Simple yet Beautiful 

Pura Vida Bracelets have become very popular over the last few years. While OCM offers a few different types of Pura Vida Bracelets, we will look at the simplest ones first. All bracelets are wax-coated, waterproof, adjustable, and have an iron-coated copper “P” Charm. 

Some of the most popular simpler ones are the Good Vibes Bracelet, Life in Color Bracelet, and Deep Blue Sea Bracelet. These are priced at $6 and the most basic Pura Vida Bracelets. In addition to the three bracelets I mentioned, the website has a few more to offer. The next simplest bracelets are the braided ones.

There are two types of braided bracelets. The first is a Mini Braided Bracelet offered in both white and black. These are priced at $10. If you’re looking for something a little heavier, there is also the Flat Braided Bracelet priced at $20. This gives off more of a cuff style look and is only offered in a salmon color.

Pura Vida Charm Bracelets

Simple yet Charming

If you enjoy something simple but “charming”, these are perfect for you. These bracelets are Pura Vida so they are promised to be wax-coated, waterproof, adjustable, and have an iron-coated copper “P” Charm just like the simpler ones. The only difference is that these have an additional charm. 

Since these bracelets have a charm, they are a little more expensive than the simpler ones. Some bracelets have a charm that hangs off of the wax-coated string. Examples of those would be the Sand Dollar or the Peace Sign offered in black and rust. Those bracelets are priced at $10. If you are looking for a charm that is built-in, those are priced at $15. Some of the popular ones include the Rose Gold Wave Charm Bracelet, Gem Mountain Charm Bracelet, or the Silver Sierra Charm Bracelet.

There is a beautiful in-between bracelet that is priced at $12. It isn't too simple but it also isn't charmed. If that sounds like something you'd enjoy - check out the  Malibu Gold Blue Bracelet. To view more of the Pura Vida bracelets offered head to the OCM website to find the perfect one for you.

T. Jazelle Charm Bracelet

The Ultimate Good Luck Charm 

If Pura Vida Bracelets don’t necessarily fit your style and you're willing to spend a little more money - OCM offers one more type of stackable bracelet. If you enjoy thick beaded bracelets these will be perfect for you. However, these are more expensive than the Pura Vida because these are beaded. 

When deciding what bracelet you want, you can choose between Amethyst, Arctic Apatite, Grey Agate, Turquoise Jasper, or White Pearl beads. Whichever bead you choose has a unique meaning. For example, amethyst is a calming stone, so if you are someone who is often stressed or anxious that might be a good choice. Prices for these bracelets range around $52.

Some popular bracelets include the Infinite Love Charm Bracelet, Lucky Elephant Charm Bracelet, and the Wave Charm Bracelet. Although these bracelets are more expensive they are absolutely beautiful and hold powerful meanings. Because of the family and daughter charm bracelets offered, these make a perfect gift for Mother’s Day, or birthdays.
