The cuff is the one bracelet that is always, always on the runway. Because of its heft, it always makes a statement and never goes unnoticed. Which is why it is also a piece that is often used to assert or proclaim someone’s personal style. The uptown girl wears a platinum or diamond version. The bohemian girl wears leather or wood. The rocker chick goes for black leather with studs. It is a bold item that can add edge to an otherwise demure outfit or a touch of glamour to an otherwise casual look.
The four classic materials are ebony, silver, Lucite and wood. Though they are also found in diamond, leather, platinum, etc.
