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.

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.
