Fashion Forward: Bold Bangles and Cuffs

Transitional Trend #5: Wood and Resin Bangles and Cuffs




Bold bangles are in for fall! That means you can keep right on wearing the bangles you wore with your summer kaftans and tunics. Hooray for versatile costume jewelry! Wood as well as resin bangles in all colors, some with organic stone detail, are in for fall. Bold in shape and color, these organic bangles will give you the edge and pop of color you need to complete your look. Whether you invest them this season or already have them in your collection, these staples will continue to play a recurring role in your style portfolio.




During summer, you might have worn these in brighter hues, like white, turquoise, yellow, or coral.




For fall, you’ll want to go darker, with forest green, amber, and deep red shades. For inspiration, check out these bangles by Marni and Marc Jacobs.





For inspiration and bangles similar to those pictured above, check out Ben-Amun, Alexis Bittar and Isharya. But you can find resin and wood pieces at any vintage store, which is great place to search for these unique finds. They’re also available at most discount retailers. These can be really affordable pieces that really bring your outfit to life!

That wraps up my five transitional trends to take you from summer to fall! Stay tuned for my upcoming post on fall fashion.

How will you wear your bangles this fall?
