I can only imagine how many strange hits I will have thanks to the subject line!
This Spring you will see a lot of leather cuffs and suede necklaces.
And you will not have to be a rocker girl or a S&M chick to wear them.
In fact there is a real equestrian vibe. Which to me spells preppy.
The cuffs I am beginning to see are sleek, streamlined, and modern. Those I like best usually have some type of metal hardware that give a nice contrast.
As for the equestrian slant, well for sometime a tradition/fashion for girls who ride is to wear a leather bracelet or cuff with your horse's name on it. It is either handtooled into the leather or engraved on a brass plate on the bracelet. Some lucky girls wear more than one.
It looks great with a few beach bracelets thrown in.
