So what exactly is Lucite?
According to it’s wikipedia entry, Lucite is basically transparent plastic used as an alternative to glass, aka acrylic glass. Versions of the material is used for a lot things.. windows, artificial limbs, fake finger nails, and this year’s hottest accessory… the Lucite bangle.
Rules for Lucite Bangles
1. Never pay more than $10 for a Lucite Bangle. Buy them from Target, Forever 21, H&M, Wet Seal, Marianne’s, Mandees, etc. Skip Bloomies and Macys (which totally overcharges for it’s costume jewelry)
2. To really punch up your outfit, wear at least 2 of the bangles at the same time (3 or more if you’re a more advanced fashion person)
3. Wear only one type of Lucite accessory at a time- so if you’re wearing a pair of Lucite heeled sandals, don’t also wear 5 Lucite bracelets or vice versa.
