Get stacking with these crazy, clobbering cuffs. I love wearing one gigantic bracelet and pairing it with smaller jewels, and if I’m not in the mood for that, one of these statement cuffs can more than do the job on it’s own. It’s best to have a distinguishing piece to start with, and then build a fuller and more personalized look by adding to it. I just can’t have enough in my closet (even though I’m running out of space to store them!).
Givenchy Crystal Pyramid & Leather Cuff: An upgrade on the rocker-chic, studded leather cuff courtesy of crystals set in large plexiglass pyramids. At Barneys New York for $769 (from $1,935)
Marni Rhinestone Leather Bracelet: Marni mixes high and low with crystals and rhinestones, but the centerpiece here is horn cabochon. Wear it with a simple strand of gems for a look that seems appropriately off the cuff. At Neiman Marcus for $552.
Oscar de la Renta Pave Basketweave Cuff: You could sport this versatile cuff with a ball gown or a pair of leather pants, and it will always look just right. At Neiman Marcus for $665.
Alexis Bittar Bel Air Yellow and Rose Gold Bangle: You see mixed metals a lot, but rarely on the same surface. This unique high-shine cuff takes the road less traveled and gets far. At Neiman Marcus for $495.
McQ Alexander McQueen Large Razor-Blade Bracelet: Definitely a more controversial design, but with the right stacking (I have a few thinner, contrasting bracelets in mind), this cuff looks sharp. At Neiman Marcus for $115.
