A long time lover and charm collector, since the age of 12 to be exact, when I got gifted my first ever Pandora bracelet, I instantly felt over the moon to now have in my possession a bracelet unique to me. A signature to the brand pioneering what is known as the Charm Bracelet, Pandora has grown ever so strong offering a full range of beautifully curated, elegant and feminine jewelry for simply every occasion. Yet Pandora stills stands at its roots, constantly creating and perfecting its charm collection to bring in a little something new everytime, to add their famous Charm bracelet.
What do I love about Pandora’s charms? They are ever so dainty, stylish and chic, offered in three shades of metal with endless design possibilities. The very reason why I remember my first Charm bracelet to this day, nearly 10 years later, is because of the wonderful feeling it gave me that I’ve now got a personalised bracelet, unique and special and my own.
With time and fashion trends coming each season, the classic Charm bracelet has evolved into so much more – there are so many different ways to style Pandora charms that it has taken personalisation to a whole new level! The beads that you’ve been wearing on your bracelet can so easily be switched up to create something unique according to your own style. So when I was asked how I would style my Pandora charms – ideas fluttered to my mind and I felt the same excitement as I did when I was 12 and eager to continue collecting charms for my bracelet! So here are 3 creative ways to style up your charms:
STYLE 1: Braids & Beads
The spring and summer seasons remind of colorful festivals, warm evening nights, glitter makeup and the fashion that goes with it! My style is very classic and chic, so I’m not often one to experiment too much when it comes to clothing and makeup. But one very easy and fun way to shake up your everyday hairstyle, especially if you’re off to a festival, a beach holiday or celebrating occasions, is to style up loose waves with your charms. This has got to be my favorite way to wear Pandora beads – and I’d gotten so many compliments about my hair that day! To add the beads to my hair I’ve just done micro braids and slid the beads onto it, making sure to use a clip-on bead at the end to make sure they stay in place. And voilà, a super stylish hairdo that is not to be missed!

STYLE 2: The Choker
Now, we all know fashion’s latest obsession with the comeback chokers – I’ve fallen victim to this trend as well and I have to say, it’s got to be the one I’ve been wearing the most this year! Yes the choker is definitely here to stay come this Spring and Summer, as it’s such a versatile look that makes your outfit slightly edgier and loads of fun – such as wearing it with a gorgeous off the shoulder dress (mine is from Aeterna Style)! I like going for the more classic and understated chokers, such as a simple cord or black band – and what’s better than styling it up with a few colorful charms? All I used to make this choker was a Pandora leather wrap-around bracelet (unwrapped to fit your neck), and two beads placed in the middle. This is definitely the most versatile and wearable way to style up your charms and have people wondering where you got it from!

STYLE 3: Oversized Bangles
Yes, we know that bangles are a classic piece, and I certainly love stacking them together! One way to change up your usual charm bracelet is to get an oversized bangle – add one or two more to create a fashion-forward, elegant look and mix it up with different colors, shapes and sizes of charms! There are so many ways you can transform the way in which you wear your charms, yet alone how you style up a bracelet too. If keeping it simple is your taste, definitely give the oversized bangle a go!
