Off the cuff
Size aside, there’s something refreshingly simple about statement jewelry. With consumer attitude shifting away from the “More is more and less is bad” attitude of yesteryear, there’s no wonder that complex necklaces, bracelets and rings are standing their own this spring. Whether you’re adhering to status quo or just don’t have the time to fuss with accessory overload, consider a cuff bracelet to complete your look – and let The Vogue City show you how to do it well.
Fendi gives a new meaning to bondage with their perforated suede cuff in aqua, $465 (Get Out of Jail Free card not included). While this bracelet isn’t particularly busy, it’s loud – what else would you expect from an Italian design house? – and should be worn with something remarkably understated, like a neutral tunic and cigarette pants.
This Luc Kieffer resin cuff, $286, is both demure and daring. Golden floral details radiate warmth through the clear resin, while Swarovski details highlight the bracelet’s shine. Resin, a durable plastic, scratches easily; consider leaving this at home while clawing through your next sample sale.
Of course, a trend isn’t a trend unless Forever 21 fornicates a version of their own. In this case, they’ve done surprisingly well with their jewel burst cuff for less than $7.
With Saint Tropez-inspired design and a choice of (faux) gold or silver base, you’ll forget you’re dredging through the last bite of winter’s arctic blast as you march uptown with visions of little pink drinks with umbrellas pouring through your head.
