Dressing well is not just about having an "in wardrobe" - having "great style" is only about determining the variety of clothing you wear to express your genuineness. As for personal style, a phrase so often overused on social media, it is a means to reveal who you are without even having to speak. I began this column years ago when Miami itself began to submerge from the label of being a 'beach town', and morph into the foundation of becoming a world-class city. The development of this occurrence was first noticeable not only in the emergence of the sky-high buildings or the plethora of art enthusiasts cascading into the 305, but in the manner in which the Miami set began to dress. And, for me, a life-long devotee of fashion, I set my roots. Fashion fuels me, excites me, you can never know everything about it, and I continue to be inspired by the style that has become Miami Style. And Spring is THE season for the social set -- I once asked a designer what he thought of Miami style, and he said GREAT! The Miami woman actually does wear the color that is shown on the Spring runway!
Spring into Style
With gorgeous weather all year round, it is easy to incorporate these fun bracelets into your wardrobe to add a pop of color or glamour to your outfit. These stackable, wrap, and cuff bracelets come in a range of prices and provide a lot of options to add spring into your step.
Whether wearing them alone or in multiples, the hottest trend is to stack away! Wear matching bracelets of the same stones or mix and match various tones of luscious colors. The more, the merrier!
