Trends for Spring ’09: Bangles
There’s something about a big, bold, bangle that says “fun” to us. We don’t know why that is, but if bangles make a statement, then to us, it’s saying “I have style AND I know how to have fun with it.”
It’s not as if bangles ever really went away, so perhaps it’s a bit of a misnomer to call them a “trend.” Still, the runways seem to be loaded with them more than ever. Designers fall in and out of love with various style elements and right now, they’re back in love with the bangle. And because we’re talking runway, we’re talking big and bold and maybe a little impractical. Most women wouldn’t wear so many of these at once, but they make for a great, dramatic look when you’re sashaying past a bunch of bitchy fashion editors.
As for which of these get the thumbs up from us…well, all of them do. Maybe we’re just feeling the love today but we have not one bitchy thing to say about any of these. We think they’re great.
