Now that the kids are back in school, moms everywhere finally have time to do a little shopping for themselves. After a long summer and in the midst of a tough economy, the challenge is to get fashionable finds that will update a wardrobe without costing a fortune. It certainly doesn’t mean that you have to spend an arm and a leg to get the look that you crave. Instead, it just requires a smart and savvy knack for picking up affordable accessories, like bold bracelets, that will help you reinvent last season’s favorites, one piece at a time.
When you think of budget bracelets, you probably think of cheap looking pieces that won’t stand the test of time. However, this season, designers and main stream retailers are responding to the demand for inexpensive bracelets that are chic and fabulous. Whether you’re a mom on the go, a working woman who travels frequently, or a lady of leisure (don’t we all wish?), there are some great options for you this season pop it bracelet.
A pop of color – Bracelets are a great way at adding a burst of color to a drab outfit. If you are one that is a slave to a monotone ensemble, then mix it up a little by adding bracelets in jewel tones like royal blue, amethyst purple or ruby red. When you have a blank canvas like all black or neutrals (read white and khaki), then you’re free to experiment with accessories.
Something a little bold – By this we don’t mean that you have to grab a look from the runway and try to make it work for you. Instead, be realistic about what looks good on you. If you’re comfortable in sheath dresses or sweater sets, add metal bracelets that have thick width for added interest. If you’re used to wearing tunics and loose fitting blouses, try layering new and old bracelets for a unique look. The key is to have fun and not take yourself so seriously.
