Cuff bracelets are amazing.
Once in a while I get flashes of inspiration so powerful I feel like Brian Cox must feel ALL THE TIME, especially when he’s looking into a sunset, contemplating life’s energy.
Or posing next to a tiger cub… look. It’s hard to say what’s cuter.
Anyway, what? Oh yes. Flashes of inspiration.
I had one this week and here it is.
They are so cool. Why have I not realised this before?
This very cool street style tumblr has, obviously.
I love the contrast of the slouchy luxe jumper with the metallic cuff. Then it’s all set off by the red polish. Divine.
It’s also such an easy look for a busy mum to pull off. If you have a massive oversized jumper lurking around somewhere and some bright nail polish, all you now need is a metallic cuff and you’re away.
(If you’re looking for a huge grey jumper like the one above, check this one out.)
Women, embrace metallic cuffs, and watch in amazement as:
1. Your arms look thinner.
2. You feel yourself getting stronger and more assertive, as you feel a bit Amazonian. Harper’s Bazaar said it best: “Worn on one wrist or both, statement or subtle, the cuff has the ability to toughen an outfit whilst retaining luxury and sophistication.”
SHINE ON, YOU CRAZY DIAMONDS
If your wardrobe is plain and utilitarian, so much the better. These cuff bracelets need a simple canvas from which to shine. And, as Harpers & Queen reckon a metallic cuff should be in every woman’s top 10, what more convincing do we need? I am on to a good thing.
