The expression “wearing your heart on your sleeve” has been taken to a new level — although to be fair, it’s not really your sleeve anymore. Your wrist is the new place to make your feelings known. The MY Single Band — a colored rubber bracelet that tells other potential mates that you are single — is the latest accessory for fall.
