Like clothing, jewelry can tell a story and be an expression of who you are. And this summer, I’m going big. The statement jewelry of the season is big, beautiful, and colorful. A stack of beaded bracelets in complementary colors will jazz up your jeans and t-shirts. Add a fun earring to your date night look for a flirty, feminine vibe. Right now, less isn’t more. More is more.
I’m all about bringing back the arm party. It feels like in recent years, necklaces and earrings have gotten all the shine. Not anymore! You can go for fun, childish joy with stacks of these Roxanne Assoulin beaded bracelets that look like colorful chiclets or enamel beads and pearls.
Frances Valentine’s stacks nail the perfectly mixed matched look with complementary color palettes like shades of pink, island-inspired turquoise and gold, or pops of brightly colored yellow and pink.
For a chunkier statement, how about a bangle or cuff? This white-and-gold Kenneth Jay Lane cuff gives off vintage Louis Vuitton vibes, and this fabric-wrapped orange gingham bangle adds a pop of color to any outfit.
I fell back in love with statement earrings when I was stuck on Zoom all day, but they’re just as great out and about in the real world. The right pair of earrings can make your jeans-and-t-shirt uniform feel special, even if you’re just going to get a coffee. For a ladylike vibe, this Kenneth Jay Lane faux-pearl cluster hoop adds instant polish.
Tuckernuck, the queen’s of Southern style, have an especially great selection of colorful showstoppers. These turquoise and gold waterfall earrings, festively embroidered rattan lantern earrings, rattan and pearl nautilus shells, and pretty pink geometric danglers are all stunning.
You know I love the layered look, especially when it comes to necklaces. This beaded and crystal number from Lizzie Fortunato and this Kenneth Jay Lane turquoise beaded collar gives a beachy twist.
