It’s the little things in life, like a short line at Starbucks or a really kick ass ear cuff. Especially around the holidays, accessories can add a touch of sparkle here and a bit of twinkle there. (See Rule #7) In this post, I’m sharing two of my new favorite pieces that go beyond the statement necklace.
First up, the ear cuff. I love ear cuffs because they add a touch of the unexpected, and they can range from bold and glamorous to elegant and slim. They are also pretty affordable, which makes them even more appealing in my book. I chose a crystal encrusted ear cuff from Nasty Gal (Only $25!) to wear with my dress for our annual holiday party, and received so many compliments. But trust me, you don’t need to be in a fancy outfit to wear this. It also dresses up jeans and a plain old t-shirt.
I also love this option from Top Shop for only $18.
My second favorite accessory of the moment is the hand piece. What the heck is a hand pice you ask? Esentially, it’s a unique twist to the bracelet that tends to be little reminiscent of middle eastern jewelry. Basically, they’re super chic and you should probably just buy one now.
I personally prefer the more subtle ones like this Moonstone Hand Piece from Nasty Gal. (Unfortunately, it’s sold out right now.) But I found a couple of other favorites below.
This Hot & Gold Hand Piece from Nasty Gal is currently on sale for only $14. *Swoon*
Free People also offers this incredible Cuff to Chain Hand Piece for $28.
I’d be interested to hear your thoughts. Do you own either an ear cuff or hand piece? Would you be willing to try them or are they too far out there for you?
