Despite my numerous attempts to rid my friends of various amounts of party attendants (guests including V Festival: the tramp with alcohol stains spilt down him and friendship bracelet: the hipster with the frayed hair) taking place at the wrist, I have so far failed.

Formulated by man-repeller Leandra Medine, the term ‘arm party’ is, according to Urban Dictionary ‘when somebody wears a bunch of different bracelets on the same arm’. Simple. Well, not simple. Complex, confusing and colourful but undeniably cool. It seems the arm-party has become something of a fashion fever. With wrist gear customisations including a dangerously spiked bracelet to a leather belt, an aztec bangle to a twisted gold plated snake, a casio watch to a friendship bracelet courtesy of your best friend, this is fashion at its most adaptable.
