Cuff It Up

Statement jewelry was a big trend for the summer of 2009 and it won't be going anywhere for the fall. Bib necklaces and bangles will still be very much in style this autumn. In addition to bangle bracelets, another fun piece of jewelry to sport on your wrist is the cuff bracelet. If you're wondering what a cuff bracelet is, it's a thick, stiff bracelet that usually has an opening in the back. You can slide your wrist through the opening instead of slipping the cuff over your hand like you would with a normal bracelet. Take a look at some of the cute cuffs posted below.

For a cute look during the spring/summer, wear one of the flower or floral print cuff bracelets with a tank top, a bleached denim skirt, and gladiator shoes. For a fun summer look, pair a braided cuff with a screen tee, some shredded denim shorts, and flip flops. For the fall, wear a leaf print cuff with a 2fer tank dress, a short-sleeved cardigan sweater or shrug, denim leggings, and a pair of peep-toe booties. A circle cuff would look cute with a Rock & Roll graphic t-shirt, bleached jeans, a pair of hoop earrings, and neon sneakers. For channeling Cleopatra, wear a gold cuff with a one-shoulder dress, gold hoop earrings, a gold bib necklace, a bejeweled headband and a pair of gladiator sandals (this would be a great Halloween costume). To look like a Greek goddess, pair a gold cuff with a braided strap dress, some gladiator sandals, a flower headband, and gold chandelier earrings (another idea for a Halloween costume). Tell me if you can think of any other ways to wear a cuff bracelet. Also, let me know about any other pieces of statement jewelry that will be carried into the fall.

Great finds! All of these cuffs are really nice! I actually had a couple of them in a post I did once. There's definitely a few of these I must have!

Tara said...

I'm glad you like my finds. I remember your post about cuffs. You had some cute cuffs on your blog too. I want all of these cuffs!

Hi Tara!

I don't actually wear jewelries because of religion but i do find it lovely when worn by other girls. It makes a pretty girl easily spotted in a room because they wear big earrings and lovely jewelries, lol.

P>S. thank you for those very inspiring comments. Congratulations in advance for your up-coming big day.

hugs

Tara said...

Thank you for congratulating me! :)

I agree that statement jewelry makes a girl stand out more. I tend to wear a lot of jewelry when I go out (I never leave the house without some nice earrings on) and am always receiving compliments. Cuffs are definitely great for adding an edge to any outfit.

It's actually a pretty girly site, but don't get fulled-it's completely dedicated to fashion. You take a picture of some cute clothing and post it there. :D The dress-up things are just as a motivation. xD
