Have you heard of trendy casual chic? It’s a look we’re particularly fond of here at Buttons Paradise, and it’s all about dressing with taste and simplicity, whilst still expressing your personality with some unexpected accessories.
If you are a fan of design objects in general, and you particularly like your fashion accessories, then this style will surely appeal to you. This style about saying a big ‘Yes please!’ to comfort and simplicity – and an almighty ‘No thanks!’ to ordinariness. It certainly doesn’t mean you have to forego your style.
Among these accessories, which can really add a splash of vigour and verve to your daily life, we particularly like these large bracelets made from coloured leather. Here are 5 good reasons why you should be adorning your wrist with a leather number.
Good reason number 1: Jewellery that makes your outfit
A shirt, a pair of jeans…add a magnificent leather cuff bracelet, and you’ll be dressed and good to go!
- Your outfit may be super simple, but it will look super chic. And you can’t blame us for wanting to be more efficient in the morning, with just 30 minutes to jump out of bed and get ready (i.e. transform ourselves into sophisticated femme fatales).
- To give a touch of personality to your look, with a bold accessory that really stands out, look for graphic and design pieces.
- Add a stroke of colour to enliven your look and draw the eye (hopefully drawing it away from your ironing ‘skills’).
With a leather cuff bracelet you will be striking…and practically flawless. What more could you ask for? You won’t just be dressed like any old person, thank you very much. No, you’ll have mastered the casual chic look, and be right on trend!
Good reason number 2: A large bracelet that looks and feels weightless
Any jewellery connoisseur will tell you that comfort is the number-one priority, and adds to the pleasure of wearing a given jewellery piece on a regular basis. Whatever the day has in store for you, and no matter what your energy levels are when you wake up in the morning, this leather bracelet will be your ideal companion. The leather is flexible and light, so this leather cuff bracelet will not get in the way of your movements and gestures – and there’s no point trying to deny that Mediterranean tendency to speak with your hands!
Good reason number 3: Perfect for in the office or out to a restaurant
This bracelet is perfect for day-to-day wear, but also looks great as part of your evening wear, especially when matched with a plain or patterned tunic or dress. You’ll find yourself filling your wardrobe with a whole heap of minimalist outfits, just to have the pleasure of wearing this large bracelet with anything and everything! This coloured leather cuff bracelet will be the perfect addition, both day and night. And it wouldn’t be right to deprive yourself now, would it…
Good reason number 4: An accessory that is feminine, not girly
With a leather cuff bracelet for women, you can play around with male/female fashion codes. The end look is modern, and ever so feminine. A quick history lesson for those of you who are interested: female leather cuff bracelets are a re-appropriation of men’s shirtsleeves and cufflinks. And in the fashion world, re-appropriations and re-workings offer a never-ending source of interest and spice.
Good reason number 5: A timeless accessory, with a soul of its own
Hermès leather bracelets have become an essential piece for the brand, and are precious and timeless.
Their most beautiful leather cuff bracelets are in their limited collections, and have been handmade with care. The same is also true for the leather cuff bracelets made by Buttons Paradise, which blend haute couture, vintage and contemporary buttons and belt buckles with rare items and collector’s pieces. The final results are unique and highly individual.
Featured here, we have a leather cuff bracelet in red leather, trimmed with a belt buckle in vintage Bakelite, and a cuff bracelet in yellow leather fastened with a large resin buckle.
