How to Mix Sweet and Edgy Fashion and Accessories

One of the biggest trends of the season is to wear fall's most feminine pieces and compliment them with accessories like bracelets that are bold, striking and a little bit rock and roll. It's this balance between sweet girl and edgy woman that has fashionistas lining up to try out this look. Here are a few tips from our experts on how to pull off the look effortlessly and with class.

If you've got a ruffled dress or blouse – Funk it up with bracelets that have a bit of an edge. For example, pony hair bangles or studded bracelets are just the key to creating balance.
