“My motto is to go wild on the accessories – the belts, the hair clips, the jewellery” – Heidi Klum
I’d certainly have to agree with Heidi’s statement – I would say that my style is classic and I am not a huge fan of over the top and loud prints. I like sharp lines, tailoring and block colour. The best way to add personality to my outfits, is through my accessories. I love rings, dangly earrings and big statement necklaces. A statement piece of jewellery can completely overhaul and lift an outfit, taking it from casual to cocktail. The trick with accessories is not to go too crazy. In essence, Heidi has got the right idea, but my rule is you do not need to make too much of a statement – let it be said through one piece.
I was so excited when I heard about Cruciani Bracelets. Loved by countless of celebrities (including Miss Klum), the line of Cruciani Bracelets are simple, fun and can add a little pop to your outfits and other accessories. Made from lace, which is normally considered quite ‘daggy’, the bracelets seem to encapsulate the Italian culture and traditions. One of the most notable designs of the bracelets, is the lucky four-leaf clover. The four-leaf clover bracelet was an idea of Luca Caprai.
Alongside the four-leaf clover, the line now includes the “butterfly”, the “love and luck”, the new “hearts”, the “Ponte Milvio” (dedicated to declarations of love on Rome’s famous bridge) the “dragons” celebrating the Chinese year and “Mars” a wonderful tribute to the man who invented the future. Regularly there are limited edition lines too.
Channeling everything Italian and definitely one of the coolest accessories summer, you can wear your Cruciani with every outfit from beach chic to nightclub couture and everything in between. Mix and match designs or team your Cruciani with other bangles, bracelets or as I said before your biggest statement piece.
So where can you purchase Cruciani bracelets? You need to head to Miss Italy – where you can find your perfect piece! With a huge range of colours, you’ll be spoilt for choice! If you’re looking for some new accessories to brighten up your summer looks, live a little and try a Cruciani! X
