Your lifestyle, your quirk
Jewelry, for a lot of fashionistas, has often only been an afterthought or an extra-special added touch, but it’s now become a very necessary part of a true fashionista's outfit.
The fashion gods just keep sending us yards and bunches of baubles, bangles, and beads. Most of this bling has been so eye-catching, interesting, and oversized that if you didn’t wow folks with your outfit, you could be sure your jewelry certainly would. The looks have been contemporary and colorful with an ethnic and bohemian flavor. The jewelry style of the moment is now more vintage-inspired, if not the real thing. Jewelry, just like clothing and shoes, is taking a step back in time.
Bold and big is still the bill of fare, but now we are also seeing earrings, bracelets, and necklaces that look like they could have been either purchased from a high-end estate sale, or a precious heirloom handed down to you. Of course, owning the real thing is always nice, but if you’re not so lucky, maybe you can raid a beloved older female’s treasure chest or stumble upon your own secondhand finds. If none of those option are available, you can still work this latest jewelry trend.
There is quite an offering of beautiful vintage-inspired glitz. Just take your pick from your favorite brand. You will find lots of options that give off a ladylike and feminine feeling that blends in perfectly with most of this summer’s hot fashion looks. Prada has a gorgeous line that can be used for inspiration. What is nice about this style of jewelry is because it’s actually vintage or vintage-looking, it works this year and will for years to come. If this is a favorite of yours, consider investing in something real, because it’s timeless. Most styles of jewelry can move along into other seasons, so what works now in the summer heat will work months down the road when the temperature starts to drop.
Unless you go with fun, affordable junior lines, be prepared to spend a little. Some of these current pieces are almost as pricey as actual authentic vintage items. But have no fear, you will have no problem finding lots of options to work this trend so it fits in with your budget. Whether you choose a cocktail ring, deco bracelet, or a pair of chandelier earrings, they will be a perfect addition to your wardrobe.
