5 Stack Style Tips

1. Think textures

Life is too short to stick to one lane. Spice up your stack with multi-layered textures - think stones with metal, metal on metal or pearls with metals.

Stack combos we love include: Colourwave combos that mix metal with coloured stones (Bowie, Woodstock, Fleetwood), Duo bracelets paired with a metal Insignia Bracelet or coloured Opulent Bracelet.

Note: For more stack combos tailored to suit your preferred bracelet read the ‘style your stack below the bracelet descriptions. 


2. Colour coordinate 

Colour coordinating is one way to effectively pull off a stack and learn how to stack bracelets in a natural way. Conversely, if you prefer to live on the wild side, then consciously clashing to create a ‘I just woke up and stacked on whatever I could find’ vibe with mixed textures or colours can work too. 

How to stack bracelets really all comes down to intention and style preferences.

Stack combos we love for coordinators include: 

  • The Colourwave stacks - Fleetwood Stack, Bowie Stack and Woodstock Stack all able to be combined with a Charm Bracelet in a matching stone of choice. 
  • Pearls with matching metal combos - Rochelle Trio or Bella Pearl Trio alongside Franc Create Charm Bracelet or Pearl Charm Bracelet.

  • Stack combos we love for clash queens include: 

    3. Choose a charity

    One of the simplest and most meaningful ways you could learn how to stack bracelets, could be to choose from one of our charity awareness bracelets and work your colour or metal selections from there.

    Each Awareness Bracelet always features a set colour, in line with the charity of choice, so it’s an easy way to work your subsequent bracelet stack choices around it. 

    Currently at Francesca, we have four key awareness bracelets available to base your stack around. 

    Stack combos we love for each awareness bracelet: 

    • Awareness Bracelet - Flood Relief - made of white jade (the stone of harmony) and designed to support GIVIT, an organisation helping those in QLD and NSW affected by the floods.
