With quite a few chilly months still ahead, our winter clothes begin to look a little tired and even more uninspiring. Spring fashions are beginning to make their appearance and the dregs of winter fashions are relegated to the bargain rack at the back of the store. With temperatures still dropping we need to find ways to brighten up our existing winter wardrobe.
Accessorizing with jewelry is one of the most effective ways is to banish the blues and bring some sparkle back into our lives. Fortunately, color is hot in this season’s winter jewelry – orange, purple and vibrant green are just what you need for those bleak winter days. Henri Bendel’s scintillating Hand Me Down necklaces in a range of colorful gemstones are perfect for showing off once you remove that winter scarf. Or for a special occasion, all eyes will be on your wrist with Fendi’s Crazy Carats wristwatch featuring rotating gemstones marking the hours.
Big and bold is also back with a vengeance this winter. Upscale stores and fashion jewelry outlets are coming out with heavy chains, cuffs, charm bracelets and earrings. Don’t be afraid to layer it on – the more the merrier. Runway models are wearing jewelry collars and multiple bracelets of clashing textures and oversized, dangling charms. Haute Closet’s chunky rhinestone and pearl rings carry the big and bold look right down to your fingertips.
You’ll see a lot of silver this season, but if gold is your preference there are loads of gorgeous choices. Glamorize your black cashmere with a stunning necklace of multiple gold strands by Krizia Fashion Jewelry or a graphic gold choker made up of geometric shapes from Oscar de la Renta’s new collection.
Look for intricate detailing for a unique look – tassels are turning up in designer fashion and jewelry collections. Celebrities have been spotted with tassels of gold, crystal, and silk swinging prettily from their ears. So no more excuses for a drab winter look!About the Author:
