Vibrant and fresh. Bring a burst of summer brightness and fun into your wardrobe, no matter the time of year. The turning of the seasons can mean a growing mass of drab, muted colors, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still spice things up a bit with your accessories.
A vivid orangey-red bracelet, like this cuff made entirely out of zippers, found recently at my local Goodwill thrift shop, is a colorful and slightly edgy piece that’s perfect for adding a bit of punch to any look. The gold metal of the zippers adds a bright, glittering flash of sparkle, without being too gaudy or dressy, as something covered in gems would be. It’s casual, while still being fun, flirty, and even a bit funky.
A go-to casual piece. Though this brilliant bangle would look lovely with any number of breezy sundresses during the warmer months, a lively accessory like this one would look just as divine with cozier, cold-weather outfits. Here, I’ve paired it with a favorite pair of slim, soft, gray pants perfect for fall or winter, and a simple cream-colored tank and lace tee shirt on top that’s ideal for layering. This ensemble can easily be finished off with a basic, neutral cardigan for warmth. A bracelet like this one would easily brighten up any other sweater you might have in your collection – but to best show off this beauty, pop it on with a three-quarter-length sleeve. And to create an ensemble that’s entirely up on this season’s trends, pair the sweater with a fabulous skirt in an edgier fabric, like faux leather or suede, and some warm, textured tights.
