Master the Layered Look

Summertime’s when your inner teenage bohemian comes out to play—and this season, accessories inspired by that craft-corner staple, friendship bracelets, are in vogue. But here’s the deal: You’re not 13, your BFF 4EVA Christy slept with you boyfriend Chip, and you don’t really want your boss to know what went down at that music festival over the weekend. So here are a few rules to keep you in check:

  • Pop in different materials. Try a metal chain—that glint of gold or silver says ‘I can afford to look this casual’—or a little leather. It’s just more sophisticated.
  • Keep it cuff-sized. Max two-three inches of wrist action or you won’t be able to lift your arm to hail a cab.
  • Skip the plastic. Yes, the kids are wearing those things that look like they’re made out of the colored bands you wore around your braces (don’t deny it!). Wear yours only when the niece who gave it to you is around.

And finally? Take the whole ensemble off at night. Just do it. These things get filthy.

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
