Accessories: Make a Statement with Jewelry Trends

Posted on July 30, 2012 by casepops | 0 Comments

What’s the most important part of an outfit?  Accessories, accessories, accessories! One could have a closet consisting of only one great pair of jeans, a tailored white shirt, and a black blazer and still make the outfit look different with the addition of accessories. Don’t believe us?  Please see Exhibit A - The Uniform Project:

The Uniform Project founder Sheena Matheikan not only used accessories to look different but to make a difference in children's lives.  If that doesn’t prove accessorizing goes a long way than we give up!

Of course one of the best ways to accessorize is with jewelry. But these days it’s less about the jewels and more about colors, metals, spikes, and geometry. So, we prefer to call it arm candy (and sisters, neck candy and finger candy :) Below is a look at what’s popping up on our favorite blogs in the realm of jewelry trends these days. The overall approach seems to be multiply it!  A mix of bracelets, a smattering of rings - multiply it and make statement.

These varied looks may not surprise you, but the places you’ll find these pieces might. Can you match the designers below with the correct piece? (no cheating!)
