Goodwill Gems: Easy Elegance With Just One Piece

A classic accent can instantly lift any look. This week’s gem is an elegant embellishment in a stunningly simple combination of black, white, and gold. This bewitching bangle is large enough to instantly catch the eye, with just a hint of shimmer from the metallic gold stripes and interior. But it manages to be chic and fun without an overload of bling, still adding an air of sophistication to nearly any ensemble you might choose to pair it with. The white painted detail found within the alternating gold bands is simple, but not plain – the single dot surrounded by teardrop shapes has an almost exotic flair to it, like something found while traveling in Europe or the Middle East.

So what to pair with this pretty bangle? Its neutral hues mean you could put it on to accent almost any look, but because of the classic color combination, it would look truly stunning next to something bright and vivid. Try it with everything from a everyday basics, like jeans and a cozy knit sweater, to slightly dressier workday wear like leather boots and comfortable but figure-flattering sweater dress. But you could even put it on to finish off an even fancier look, like the cocktail party-perfect ensemble pictured here. The deep cobalt blue color of the dress is a beautifully bright backdrop for this lovely accessory, and the black lace detail echoes the black stripes around the circumference of the bracelet.
