When you want to add some drama to your look, a cuff is a great way to do it.
They make a chic fashion statement and sure can add some pizzazz to your wardrobe!
Here are some tips for choosing and wearing cuff bracelets.
1. Go Big, But Don’t Overpower
Big and bold is the way to go with a statement piece like this, but it is still important to keep your bone structure in mind. If you have medium to large bone structure, then by all means go with a wide, solid cuff with heavy stones or jewels.
On the other hand, if you have fine wrists and arms then you will need a cuff that is less wide and airier, so as not to overpower. A cuff with chain detail or with multiple fine bangles forged into a single band will look more balanced with your small frame.
2. Choose the Right Metal and Details
If you have warm undertones – peachy skin and gold in your hair, a gold cuff will be most flattering. If your hair is on the cool side (ash) and your skin has pink undertones, then you will look best in a silver cuff. Pearls in a cuff say conservative, diamonds say elegant, while large irregular, rough cut stones say creative and dramatic.
3. Show off Your Arms
A long sleeve top or dress is exactly the kind of thing you don’t want to wear with a cuff bracelet. Show off that cuff in a gorgeous 3/4 length sleeve or bare arms.
4. Double Cuff It
For instant drama try two cuffs, one on each wrist with a sleeveless dress. No need for any other jewelry except maybe a small pair of earrings. You want the cuffs to have maximum impact.
