As spring season nears and we prepare to bare arms, bracelets come out into full focus. A wonderful addition to even the most simple tank, 3/4 sleeved jacket or short sleeved top, the bracelet is like the punctuation at the end of a sentence. But move over, bangles. Cuff bracelets are what I'm talking about.
Crafted in everything from leather to lace, from rhinestones to hammered metal, cuff bracelets are all the rage this season and the options are endless. This chic Hammered Metal Cuff with Agate packs a lot of punch for not a lot of price at just $27.
When wearing cuff bracelets, keep in mind that personal scale is what it's all about. If you're 5'2" and petite, opting for the 4" wide cuff bracelet is just not going to look right. Sure, you can look like a rock star, but go for something a little more proportional to you to look balanced and chic. Also, because cuff bracelets are a statement-making piece of jewelry, keep everything else in check. Opt for a pair of earrings that relate to your cuff but don't compete with it. Also, you should forego wearing a ring (except your wedding ring, of course) on the same hand as your cuff bracelet. It will visually cut your hand up and make you look choppy. Mad props if you give yourself the star treatment and have your nails done in a sexy hue - you'll feel just like a rock star!
