Cuff me. Cuffs have always fascinated me and I am not sure why. Perhaps they fascinate me because sexy superheroes wear them, or because my mom always rocked one while I was growing up.
Here’s my point: cuffs are fashion accessories. Don’t hide behind your layers. Embrace some wrist sex appeal. Let your wrist have some fun for a change and steal the spotlight from your ears and the neckline once in a while. Because winter clothes are furry and entail layers, this post features only bigger, louder speaking cuffs.
When something is on sale and it’s hot, it’s more of a reason to buy, obviously! This elaborate cuff has all kinds of elements on it. It’s like the centerpiece of a table. Just let it be… the black feather on the gold with colored stones gives it versatility.

This next cuff comes in two different colors. One is faux pearl and the other is a combination of black onyx and dark green stones -- both are awesome. Sylvia Toledano did a wonderful job bringing the ancient world into the new world. I love the length of this cuff.

I found that most of my favorite cuffs were from Neiman Marcus. I am sure there are all kinds of fun cuffs available elsewhere, but this was a great one-stop shop with an array of cuffs. However, they are pricey and that can definitely hurt the wallet during the gift-giving season. I found one that I actually liked that was under $100. This cuff is a little bit more subdued than previous features, even though it has crystals on it. However, I chose it because it has a reasonable amount of spunk, it’s affordable, and it is season appropriate!

I am sure you silver gals are wondering why my features are mainly gold. I don’t have an answer other than I am biased. I did find an elegant yet edgy silver Alexis Bittar cuff. This cuff has a torn part that folds over to show off some pave crystals.
