The bangle bracelet trend is gaining more attention than ever. While they are now made in various materials and colors, today we focus on linking this trend with the popular all metal jewelry craze.

Check out the Sweet Bling Wave Bracelet Set to meet both your bangle and metal jewelry needs. This set of three gold tone bangles with a wave design inspires a fun and flowy feel. I found this bright maxi skirt with a sheer blue and white material in a tribal pattern. Maxi skirts are one of the best ways to tie comfort and style. A simple crop top completes this look without taking away from the skirt’s statement.

Spring Maxi Dress with Nakamol Cuff Bracelet

14 Apr

Sweet Bling has various designer selections, including Nakamol, a jewelry company based out of Chicago. What is unique about this jewelry is that each piece is handmade in Thailand. Pieces we carry range from delicate beaded necklaces to original wrap and cuff bracelets. While the wrap bracelets are a staple for the layering bracelet trend that is gaining major attention, the cuff bracelets are more of statement pieces with a wide leather band and bright beading.

Today we work with our Nakamol Turquoise Flower Cuff. This bracelet features detailed turquoise and gold beading on top of a rich brown leather cuff. This piece inspires a play on texture and color, which transcends into today’s outfit choice.

Starting with an olive green maxi dress, there are many reasons this dress speaks. Maxi dresses have the ability to be dressed up or down, making them a wardrobe must. Olive green is a color that works as a neutral in the way it flawlessly pairs with endless colors. It is however more vibrant than a white, black, or gray for variety. Olive green against this cuff’s gold and turquoise especially pops. Choosing to dress down this look, a denim jacket is key. This one in particular is partially distressed and with the maxi dress, pulls hints of the olive green. Some leather gladiator sandals or even flip-flops would complete this spring ensemble, with the option to remove the denim jacket in the sunshine. But with a cool breeze and a desire for some casual edge, I couldn’t resist throwing on my Steve Madden Troopa Boots in brown leather. Boots with a dress has a beautiful feminine appeal with an element of surprise. This distressed brown leather also works with with the rich leather of the Nakamol Cuff. The combination of leathers, denim, and a simple maxi all compliment each other with a mixture of texture and color.
