There's the jewelry you wear every day and don't feel dressed without—maybe it's a delicate necklace, a wedding ring, or a pair of studs you don't even take off to shower—and then there's jewelry that stands out, making a difference in the rest of a look. Not to be confused with statement jewelry—a trend that is as out of fashion as it sounds—these are pieces that ask to be asked about, even if they're understated. Cuffs, for instance, add a finishing touch to the simplest articles of clothing—just look to the Lanvin Spring 2015 collection for proof (and for the easy hack of wrapping your purse strap around your wrist). So in the spirit of polishing up for the season ahead, here are five new options. Please peruse, and let me know your spring jewelry game plan below, cuff or otherwise.
Alexis Bittar Vert D'Eau Stacked Cuff Bracelet: Lucite bands with a gold frame make for a luminous pearl-looking, triple-stacked cuff. Wear it with something as basic as a white tee, and let it do all the work.
Giles & Brother Mini Cortina Cuff: A classic made slightly smaller and more wearable for day-to-day. Think of it as the low-impact cuff.
A.P.C. Texas Bracelet: “Buckle up—it's the law' is something that runs through my head every time I see this one. It might look like a watch to passerby, but it'll reveal itself up close.
Efva Attling Balls Cuff: Three bubbles on a thin strand almost look like a molecule drawing out of science class...but are infinitely more elegant. This is the kind of subtle conversation starter that you can wear during day or night.
Brash Cat Fish Cuff: Haven't you always wanted to wear a fish around your wrist?
