A: Dear Stephanie,

“Get rid of friendship bracelets altogether, and concentrate on gold and silver,” pronounced accessories director Julia Kalachnikoff. “No strings, no other colors, no rubber—it ends up looking junky. Add a watch, too, in gold or silver.” She thought for a moment and softened her stance, however minutely. “I don’t mind a little leather in the watch or for some of the bracelets. But leather and metal. That’s it. Keep it simple.”
