We’ve heard there are only one or two of these sparkling flower bracelets left in the Marni boutique on Mercer Street (you might be able to find more online).

Wear layered with assorted bangles to add whimsy to a simple T-shirt and camel-colored short—even better, imagine the hammered red-rose and blue fantasy bloom hanging at your wrist while dressed in a mix of Marni’s spring stripes and prints. “It’s all about decorative detailing: floral-inspired designs with sculptural applications,” says designer Consuelo Castiglioni. “They’re quintessentially Marni.” Marni bracelet, $595;—Stephanie LaCava Edited by Virginia Tupker
