Director’s Dossier: Make a Statement with Cuffs and Bangles to Wear Now and Later

Despite the hot temperatures outside, let’s talk fall fashion.  I realize it is hard to think about chunky knit sweaters and leather leggings now, so we won’t.  We will focus on jewelry, pieces that you can buy now, wear now and through the fall.

I am loving statement bangles and cuff bracelets.  For summer, I like to wear my oversize brass cuff by Made, with my most feminine summer frocks.  In the fall, I pair it with super shiny legging, a soft tie-neck blouse and motorcycle boots.

Look for bangles and cuffs with detail.  Pieces with cut-outs, laser cut patterns, stones, or embellishment. Statement jewelry is just that, so don’t over do it.  Two oversized cuffs, one on each wrist, may have been a lifesaver for Wonder Woman, it is off-limits to the rest of us.

Try mixing your statement piece with unexpected looks.  A simple tee-shirt with a pencil skirt keeps your silhouette streamline and allows your jewelry the attention it deserves.  Play with different textures.  If your jewelry is shiny and sparkly pair it with a casual look.  You can wear your softest, prettiest, dress and put on your giant cuff bracelet.  Instantly super girly becomes super modern.  For me, it is all about classic with a modern twist.

According to Vivienne Westwood, “You have a much better life if you wear impressive clothes.”  As a stylist in the fashion industry for over 10 years, I have found this to be true.  I work with Neiman Marcus Denver, People Stylewatch Magazine, and I am the current Fashion Director for 303 Magazine.
