Hollywood's Bracelets & Bangles
As Lindsay demonstrates here, Chanel's skinny resin/metal bracelets from the Cruise collection are simply delightful (six different colors, from $330-$1950, at select Chanel boutiques, 800-550-0005) and Hermes' enamel options are new classics (narrow H Bracelet, $455, hermes.com). So naturally we were pleased to find affordable versions that are clearly inspired by their haute cousins.
1. Yellow and Kelly Green Enamel Bangles by A.V. Max. ($25 each, avmaxaccessories.com)
These bracelets are 22k gold-plated, 3/8'' wide, and come in seven colors: purple, red, gold, peacock blue, black, white, and kelly green. If you like, you can also purchase bangle sets, featuring an enamel color of your choice paired with two, plain, goldtone bangles. ($48, shoptwigs.com)
2. Purple Wide Enamel Bangle by A. V. Max. ($45, avmaxaccessories.com)
If you need a little more bang(le) for your buck, go for the wide version of A.V. Max's simple bracelet.
3. Leather Screw Bracelets by CC Skye. ($140, maxandchloe.com)
We think these leather and gold plate pieces look like an inexpensive hybrid of Cartier's Love Bracelet ($2975 for 18k yellow gold, cartier.com) and Hermes' Bracelet Looping ($455, hermes.com). The bracelet has a buckle closure and is available in orange, green, and black.
4. Legacy Stripe Bangle by Coach ($98, coach.com)
This enamel, brass, and gold plate bangle was created in homage to Coach's Legacy prints. It also comes in three different widths, so there's a version for any wrist.
5. Solid Turnlock Bangle by Coach ($128, coach.com)
Coach's bangle is made of palladium and enamel-like the Hermes version. The lock detailing is a nod to another Hermes favorite, the Kelly Double Tour bracelet ($345, hermes.com ).
