The best fashion accessories can elevate your look to the ultimate level, especially when jewelry is worn. That doesn't mean that only big and bold pieces will be noticed. Jewelry can also be delicate and unique and serve as your signature style. Jewelry should be fun and a part of your look and not kept hidden away in a safe box for fear of loss, theft, damage and so on. Here are our stylist's recommendations for standing out with some awesome jewelry pieces.
Who wouldn't want to adorn their body with a stunning emerald, ruby or sapphire? If you can't afford the real thing, you can always celebrate the beauty of gemstones with some gorgeous fakes such as a ruby cocktail ring that people will be staring at all night. Or how about a sterling silver pair of chandelier earrings set with big, faux turquoise stones? Colorful gems are timeless, and when worn as costume jewelry, they sparkle beautifully when the light hits them.
It doesn't get better than an armful of pretty bracelets to complete your ensemble. Or even just a single piece can become your signature style. There is something about bracelets that most of us can't get enough of. They look gorgeous with casual to formal wear, and it's fun to mix metals and add unique pieces like women's Celtic bracelets. Bracelets come in so many designs such as bangles, cuffs, chains, with charms, etc. and are lovely works of art in their detail, minimalism and sophistication.
A strong piece of jewelry worn around the neck is eye-catching and can enhance your outfit. Reality TV star and fashion icon Kim Kardashian West has often chosen statement necklaces to turn heads at important events and even at runway shows where she sits holding court in the front row. She has also been a fan of layered gold necklaces to accentuate her decollete, and her latest fave has been the chunky collar necklace she wore to a Vogue magazine interview for filming a new video "End of an Era: At Home with Kim Kardashian." She wore the necklace with a long, figure-hugging white dress that was minimal in design.
Jennifer Lopez enjoys rocking giant hoop earrings as part of her casual, signature style. She has chosen this piece over and over again because big hoops are classic and look amazing with everything from office wear to casual wear to the red carpet. JLo is usually photographed in gold hoops. Hoops don't need much else. Their beautiful spherical shape is enough and doesn't require sparkle to elevate their simplicity. Fashion designers often bring hoops to the runway, including Ralph Lauren, Balenciaga, Marc Jacobs and Versace.
No, anklets are not only reserved for sultry beach time. In fact, ankle bracelets are a hot trend this season and can be worn with every style imaginable. Whether you're in a bikini, a pair of shorts, a mini, midi, maxi or heading to a wedding, party, with your favorite stilettos and more, an anklet can create an elegant touch to your ensemble. Of course, spring and summer are the ideal times for showing off an ankle bracelet and the cool vibe it sends. There are many options in designs when it comes to the anklet. Some are very thin and delicate while others are adorned with pearls, beads, gemstones, metal links, etc.
Let's be honest; a brooch is another timeless piece that evokes a vintage vibe, and some women enjoy collecting brooches. A great-looking brooch can allow your top to stand out, and in these Zoom times, a brooch is a fine choice to wear while you're conducting a meeting or tuning in for something else. You can find brooches inexpensively as costume jewelry or from vintage times, and wearing one or two together isn't just for a formal or mature ensemble. A brooch can look pretty with jeans and a tee.
Jewelry has become a key fashion accessory more than ever these days, and personal pieces can help define our style and turn heads. Don't store your favorite pieces hidden away. Wear jewelry and stand out from the rest!
