Trend No. 10: Bracelets
The recent fall/winter fashion shows enforced our desire to adorn our wrists in a big way. As Jen Heebner said in her original predictions, the fact that bracelets will continue to be worn is sort of a no-brainer. But it’s not just about the bracelet, though, it’s about how the bracelet is worn. If we’re not stacking bangles and delicate line bracelets with as much vigor as we do our rings, then we might be looking for a high-impact single piece: wide-as-can-be cuffs, hand bracelets (bear with me here), and the bracelet/ring combination piece (otherwise referred to as a hand chain). Bottom line: We want them all. As the weather gets warmer and the long sleeves get stashed away (wishful thinking here), bare wrists are going to call for lots of adorning.
