Welcome to The Essentials, our weekly series highlighting a must-have classic, key to building a timeless, pulled-together closet.

The bangle, worn individually or as a set, is one way to give any outfit a bit more glam. The beauty of this bracelet is not only in the simplicity of its design, but in its effortlessness: Throw one on and go or slip a few on and never take them off. The classic piece can be worn for day or night, on weekends, with loungewear, even popped on (and off) for a trip to the airport. Available in all shapes, sizes, and materials—wood, glass, and diamond—you can maintain a monochromatic stack of bangles or pile on a mix of metals for a more eclectic look. Below, our favorite takes on a classic bangle so you can find your signature piece.
