If you want to get in on one of the hottest trends for summer 2012, it’s time to style like an Egyptian and pile on the bold gold cuffs.
Gold cuff bracelets are a perennial favorite that work well with this year’s tribal and ethnic-inspired fashion prints. Colorful ethnic-print maxi dresses and other ethnic-inspired pieces get a serious dose of glam when paired with an armload of gold cuffs and bangles. But it isn’t just a print dress that looks hot with this jewelry trend: workplace staples, casual wear, and even beach wear all benefit when you go for the gold.
Add a dose of glamour to work wear with an openwork gold cuff like Zariin’s ‘Glam Skin Show’ gold and agate cuff bracelet. It’s bold enough to be on-trend but delicate enough to wear with a sleeveless blouse and slacks and look thoroughly put-together and chic.
For a casual day out, in either Western or Indian wear, a chunkier pick like the ‘Pride of Princess’ cuff is just the ticket. Multicolored stones make it a true piece of statement jewelry, and it’s bold enough to dress up even a very plain outfit without any thought at all.
Celebs love wearing their jewelry to the beach, and even if you’re merely lounging poolside, adding some chunky gold bracelets to your bikini and coverup can make you look like a million bucks. A stack of thin gold bangles adds serious style without weighing you down; pile on picks like Zariin’s ‘Stack Me Up’ bangles with turquoise or mixed stones. Add a chic maxi dress as a coverup and throw on some wedges, and you can go straight from the beach to lunch al fresco.
Since debuting in 2010, Indian jewelry label Zariin has been a favorite of fashionistas everywhere, earning rave reviews from Harper’s Bazaar and gracing the red carpet on celebrities like Chitrangada Singh. Contemporary designs, bold colors, and semi-precious uncut stones make Zariin jewelry unique and instantly recognizable. Sisters and co-founders Mamta and Vidhi Gupta have continued to expand their label, opening a flagship boutique in Mumbai and partnering with famed Indian stylist Pernia Qureshi for Lakme Fashion Week, India’s most prestigious fashion event. You can find Zariin at high-end boutiques worldwide or online through zariin.com.
