Cuffs aren’t just for men—make them your own and style them as you please. Create a classy
version to peek out from under an elegant jacket or go a little crazy and wear them with a t-shirt and jeans. Experiment with pipings, buttons, and ready-made lace. The outcome will be very individual. These also make great last-minute presents for friends!
