Sunday Style Tips for Cuffing Season
Sunday Style Tips
It’s official. The gradually cooling temperatures across the nation signal a subtle but distinct subcategory of seasonal indulgences. We are slowly but surely entering the “cuffing season” territory.
For those of you not quite familiar with cuffing season may not know the phrase but have most likely felt the effects of it at one time or another. Urbandictonary.com defines cuffing season as,
“During the Fall and Winter months people who would normally rather be single or promiscuous find themselves along with the rest of the world desiring to be “Cuffed” or tied down by a serious relationship. The cold weather and prolonged indoor activity causes singles to become lonely and desperate to be cuffed.”
Since, cuffing season might have us all feeling a bit more cozy-seeking than our usual selves this year, we’re going to go with it. We’ll take a look at holidays faves and updates that look deliciously sweet paired with the latest body jewelry trends to compliment any look.
The LBD & CBR : the Perfect Pair
Since we started with urban slang, we’ll roll right through the next one. Most of you know that the LBD (Little Black Dress) is going to be your go-to grab and look beautiful for those last minute dinners, weekday holiday parties and maybe even a few new dates.
The beauty about the little black dress in this case is, of course, the universally flattering shade. It goes with just about anything, can be dressed up and dressed down depending on how further accessorize. And the best body jewelry to go with this style is just as versatile as the LBD: the Captive Bead Ring (or CBR in short).
CBR’s for lip, nose and lobe piercings have taken on a lighter appearance and come in a variety of finer gauges and diameters, complete with a dusty rose gold or white gold finish. The 16G CBR in a rose gold finish paired with the LBD is a polished look in fly this season.
White Opalite Gems (synthetic and natural alike) have making their way back into the spotlight in body jewelry and rightfully so. This sweet and bright gem has a white rainbow speckled appearance that is often described as “dreamy” or “fantasy-like”. It’s no wonder the body jewelry sporting these gems are getting all the love this cuffing season.
The color of the gem is neutral enough to go with all of your deep, rich colors inspired by the holidays, such as ruby red or an emerald green dress. The rainbow faceted sparkled finish is just the right amount of shine to continue the holiday celebration without competing with your festivities.
It’s a Full House
The holiday season is just the perfect excuse to be a little more generous with just how much bling can donne comfortably. With all the shiny lights and holiday spirit, this is that time of year when it is totally okay to express your excitement and enthusiasm though jewelry.
Cascading earrings and fully occupied ear lobes piercings this season is definitely a must. Combining dainty septum and nipple piercing jewelry on your lobes can create the texture and intrigue that you crave without having to run out and get some extra piercings. Change it up often and don’t be afraid to experiment.
