When it comes to fashion and beauty, TikTok is the place to spot all the emerging popular trends.

Receiving a gold or silver charm bracelet? Boring, uninspired and outrageously expensive. But receiving a bra strap bracelet? Thoughtful, sustainable and sentimental. Nothing beats it.

People on TikTok are fashioning their bra straps into elastic bracelets adorned with charms, personalised stitching and logos. And, it's simpler than you think to whip one up yourself.

1) First you need to unhook the bra strap from the band that goes round your chest.

2) Cut it off above the part that you would use to adjust the length of the straps.

3) Next, loop the end through the adjustable part of the bra and tighten.

4) Use the hook to keep the strap down.

If your bra doesn't have a hook you can put a stitch in it to make sure that it stays locked to your wrist.

There's actually a meaning behind the whole bra strap bracelet trend. People are making them to give to their partners to show that they're taken. Sometimes they even embroider their initials into the bracelet too. Aww!
