If there’s one truth we feel confident of, it’s that you can’t ever have too much jewelry. When was the last time you regretted having the perfect pair of vintage earrings to go with the new cocktail dress you bought for your friend’s wedding, or wondered, “What can I possibly do with this statement necklace?” The fact—fact, we tell you!—is that jewelry serves many purposes. It jazzes up our favorite outfits, it’s another outlet for self-expression, and it makes us look pretty. ’Nuff said.
This season, we’re loving the preppy edge of graphic bangles. In every material from shiny silver to enameled metal and even rope, they’re the perfect touch for making a preppy ensemble look a bit less buttoned-up and a whole lot zippier. Found a great preppy bangle? Post a link in the comments!
