Best Bet: The New Rules for Wristwear

Buy in volume, embrace the mismatch, and stop when you hit the elbow. Short of that, bracelets, wristlets, and bangles can’t get too stacked or wildly styled right now. Here, a few dozen new arrivals, including jeweled elastic bracelets from Forever 21 ($5.80), woven friendship-style lanyards by new designer Jenny Kang ($25 to $85), stretchy circles from Charlotte Russe ($4), and a single rhinestone bangle with a magnetic clasp from Club Monaco ($39).
