….Or so says Debra Messing in this month’s issue of Instyle magazine. She say it’s a creative outlet for her and I agree. If you want a (usually) cheaper but still fun way to show your personality, jewelry is the way to go.
I was with a group of gals last week doing a style chat, a question/answer time, and helping with their clothing swap (great idea btw). We had a fun time and towards the end one of them asked about jewelry and how to start incorporating it into her wardrobe. My suggestion was to start with color, size, or shape. If you normally do silver or gold, buy a piece that incorporates some color with some beading maybe. If you only wear small stud earrings, go a little bigger and add a different shape. You get the idea. Check out the pics below for some inspiration….
The first 3 pics are from Anthropologie…going to Green Hills today, I just may have to stop by! Also, news flash, an Anthropologie is going into Brentwood rumor says:)
This sweet teardrop earring is a perfect first step to branch out from studs!!
Another choice….see, a bit of color or shape will make a huge difference.
If you just wear a gold chain or small diamond pendant, why not add some length and color? This is delicate yet will add a bit of bohemian flare to jeans and a tee shirt.
Time, (pun intended:), to add a pop to your wrist besides your Seiko. This will “summer~ize” any outfit….so pretty and a great move toward some bright color.
Now for the brave and bored among us…..brave enough to wear an “out there” piece and bored with your own collection. Try this pair of earrings and step into a world of ’60’s inspired color. I’ll take ’em!
A single silver bracelet is way to sedate for you, right? How about this lovely leather goodie? This may need to be my Mother’s Day gift….love it.
This red necklace is heavy enough to make a statement yet simple in its design. The multi strand braid and solid color would work beautifully with a strapless dress or maybe a black tee and white jeans for a color blocking vibe. Or go really bold and try the popular pink/red combo….maybe coral pants, white top, some fab brown wedges, and this necklace? Just thinking off the top of my head:)
I hope I’ve given you some ideas about changing up your jewelry routine. Whether you like to stay simple or always go big and bold, there are definitely ways to change it up by adding a colored stone, or teardrop earrings instead of hoops, or why not a necklace with several silver strands instead of just one?
Of course, you could always really bling it out like this cutie does. Look at all the bracelets stacked up. I love her blog….click on the pic and skip on over.
So, tomorrow when you are getting dressed, see if you can put some spark into your accessorizing. Remember to call or email for springtime help….shopping, closets, or even packing for a trip! Early May appointments are available. Thanks for reading and have a great rest of the week!
