Cuffs

I just wanted to post a small post today, nothing great, but better than nothing.


Cuffs have been a big hit lately and replaced the bangles. The thing I love about cuffs is that they're more sophisticated than a wrist full of bangles. Of course a one cuff is enough, and only on one wrist. Here are a few of my favourite picks, in a few price categories.

Embellished

Add more sparkle to your outfit by wearing an embellished cuff.

From left to right: Glass Stone Embellished Cuff $18.25 from Asos; Celestina Bente Uno Cuff $1650 from Net-a-porter.com; Erickson Beamon Patent Leather Cuff $308 from Net-a-porter.com.

Golden Touch

Elegant and graceful.

From left to right: CC Skye Enamel Cuff Bracelet $202 from PinkMascara; CC Skye Nouveau Riche Rope Cuff $220 from RevolveClothing; Wide Plait Detail Cuff $9.12 from Asos.

Colourful

If you're wearing a simple dress or neutral colours, a more colourful cuff is great to pop up the outfit.

From left to right: Chloé Jackson Enamel Cuff $780 from Net-a-porter.com; Lucite Cuff $6.80 from Forever 21; Plastic Colored Bangle $5.80 from Forever 21.

Logos

The Fendi cuffs are probably more fancy but if they don't suit your budget, the 'H' one from Forever 21 is also a great choice.

From left to right: Fendi Perspex Logo Cuff $170 from Net-a-porter.com; Fendi Cuff Bracelet $250 from Neiman Marcus; Harriet Rhinestone Cuff $5.80 from Forever 21.

great post! I have such a cheap taste because the only thing that caught my eye is the black cuff with an H for $5.80. After that, I'd probably wear the Celestina cuff.

I love cuffs. My mom has a gold cuff watch that she won't let me have, ;[.

I really like the fendi ones. the F21 one looks a little cheap (even though it is lol), that makes me sad. Because, F21 is more in my budget. I hope they have other selections.

Hey, Nice post on cuffs & nice blog too. I recently noticed them from the Michael Kors fashion show while I was browsing.

I don't usually use cuffs because I have really tiny wrists and they either slip down all the way, or they just look too bulky on me. =(

I've linked your blog (:
Do you want to do a link exchange?

Lovely post.
I LOVE a good embellished cuff with jeans and a white shirt on a woman for a weekend! Nothing else required to make me fall in love! ;)
I am not sure about the logo ones, though. I like them but, I think, they're most of the times a bit harder to pull off since sometimes logos are so obvious!
