Frugal find! I love the look of a sculptural cuff, and this one by Cara Accessories is out of a modern high-art gallery at a very low-art price.The matte-shiny mix highlights the daring twists and gives it depth, which also makes it look more valuable than it’s crazy-low cost. Gold is ideal for a long, gauzy dress and bronzed skin, while silver is the route to take for sharpening an already-polished cocktail look. Blending high and low is the key to intelligent dressing. It’s also the best way to flaunt the styling tricks you’ve got up your sleeve – and in this case, on your wrist. At Nordstrom for $48 (from $31.90).
Pair with: Reed Krakoff‘s ostrich-and-crocodile bag is as gorgeous as a white summer bag can be. Wear it with the silver cuff and match your metals or the gold version to righteously break the rules. Reed Krakoff No. 9 Handle Bag, $4,400.
