Ancient Egyptian cuff made from beads.

A REVIVAL

The cuff is a large bracelet, 5–10cm wide, rigid or supple – anything smaller is a bangle. IT CROSSES MANY BOUNDARIES – geographic, style, even gender. Historically, in Europe, Asia, Africa, India, and Egypt, men as well as women wore it at the wrist, up the arm, at the ankle.

THE GREAT GATSBY movie looks set to prompt a revival of the cuff’s heyday in the 20s and 30s. “IT HAS ALWAYS PROJECTED A SPIRIT OF MODERNITY, INNOVATION, AND STRENGTH,” says Nathalie Colin, “and it can help women feel more self-confident.” Great for both minimalist and opulent looks, it accessorizes boyish, androgynous styles and the new feminine loose suits. Wear it on bare arms or on top of a sleeve – one on each wrist, or two to three smaller widths on the same arm.
