Bracelets: How to Wear Fall Fashion’s Biggest Trend!

Bracelets are making big waves this Fall!
It’s not uncommon to see 8, 9 or even 10 on each arm!  Unique to 2011  is mixing all the different types.  This season,  cuffs, skinny bangles, chunky bangles, charm bracelets, beaded bracelets, dainty bracelets,
gold bracelets, silver bracelets and bold bracelets are all on trend …….and together!
Everything Goes

Bows are a trend in clothing and shoes this season and check out the bracelets with bows! A classice Juicy Couture Pave bracelet and Ted Baker Cherry Bow bangles are super sweet!

Menswear inspired bracelets are popping up everywhere: (and not just on ladies, men are layering, too!) Leather isn’t just for shoes and handbags. I love these!

Great alone or layered

It’s so fun mixing colorful bangles like these with your current watch and metal bracelets!  This Kate Spade enamel collection and MARC by Marc Jacobs Concrete Jungle bangles

are my favorite for adding some color to your arm!

Pops of Color

I love wearing bracelets with meaning, too.  Right now I’m wearing (only on my right wrist) my “C” and Leo bracelets from Alex and Ani, my Inspirational and stainless cuff bracelets from Latasia, three  metal skinny bangles and charm bracelet I earned for fashion sales with CAbi, my Alex and Ani feather bracelet my friend gave me for my birthday and my “H” bracelet all on one wrist! (Don’t weigh yourself with all these on – it’s not pretty!)  I sound like my dog with her tags – you can hear me coming, but I love it!   What is on the left? A vintage cuff, black leather wrap bracelet and the same Michelle watch I’ve worn for 6 years is on right now.  The large cuffs like the Lois Hill one above always make me feel like Wonder Woman or part of the Wonder Twins – it’s great to not take yourself too seriously!

Wear all at once!

So, share with us, what’s on your wrist?!   What is your favorite new bracelet trend this season?

Walking on the Wedge

Playing on the summer trends of neutral palettes, animal prints and fun texture – shoes can make an outfit!  Shoes are a huge weakness of mine and this season the wedges are stealing my heart!  A 4ish inch heel is an instant confidence booster – provided you can walk without falling! 
Remember when you used to play dress up?  The list included lipstick, hair accessories, a glam outfit and heels that were too big? It started in childhood and continues on.  We all feel special in a pair of heels! 
This season’s designers have added some fun.  Look at these Marc Jacobs!  Pair these with a Maxi dress or a simple silky white tee and jean shorts, big hoop earrings and a pony tail…you get the picture!  And how sophisticated are the Via Spiga’s!  You can find these in fine department stores, but I stumbled across this exact pair called ‘epic’ in a free standing Via Spiga store in SoHo in NYC last month.  LOVE THEM!  How about the JRenee’s?  These aren’t your mom’s flip flops!  What a brilliant design team for Seychelles – a cool casual tribal wedge and fun flirty floral print wedge!  Who can ever top Tory Burch….she is always one of my top 5 shoe and handbag designers – classic, yet on trend fun stuff!
In case you are more of a classic shoe girl…..here are just a few more I’m loving this summer! One for every budget…come to mama!  Now…..I just need a bigger closet!
Do you dare walk on the wedge?  Who are your favorite shoe designers this summer?
