Why The Fashion World Is Buzzing About This Bracelet

If there’s one thing we love more than quirky-cool fashion, it’s fashion with a function — after all, we’re busy. And, if it’s uncomfortable, poorly made, or doesn’t make us feel good, no thanks.
That’s why every time we hear about the next big thing in wearables, our ears perk up, hoping this will be the gadget that changes the game. The MICA, a jewel-encrusted smart bracelet designed by the brainiacs at Intel and the trendsetters at Opening Ceremony, is just that. It can receive text messages, calendar alerts, Yelp recs, and — let’s not forget — horoscopes, trend reports, styling tricks, and fashion news from yours truly. Plus, it may be the first wearable to not only fit in with but also enhance our best #OOTDs. 
To show you exactly what we mean, we asked five of the most stylish women we know to try out (and try on) the bracelet. Ahead, see how each one makes it fit her look — it's all the inspiration you need to start brainstorming your own smart brilliant combos.
