Bracelet bonanza

By Silhouettes1 · December 13, 2010 · 0 Comments ·

One great thing about the holidays is the party aspect, because it means dressing up and choosing fun accessories and jewelry to go with your outfits. But you can really wear jewelry anytime, if you know the basics. First up, bracelets! These can be kind of a neglected part of your jewelry wardrobe, but they are really fun, too.

The cuff: this thick bracelet works best with ¾ length sleeves (or shorter), otherwise it will get covered up. Cuffs don’t go all the way around your wrist, they just “cuff” it. And one cuff is all you need! There are casual cuffs and fancier cuffs. This leather and turquoise cuff would work well with jeans and a t-shirt or any casual look, while this cuff is nice for casual, but it also works well with fancier attire.

The bangle: bangles come in all kinds of sizes, from very narrow to thick. Bangle refers more to the style, which is a looser-fitting, solid bracelet that dangles from your wrist. Bangles work with every outfit. Thin bangles are best worn in groups, while thick bangles should be worn on their own.

The tennis bracelet: tennis bracelets are jointed, flexible, and thin bracelets, usually made of jewels (most famously, diamonds). Tennis bracelets can be worn with any length sleeves and any outfit—even while playing tennis!

And of course there are tons of other kinds of bracelet options. Check them out here.
