The Gem Color of Spring is…. Yellow, mimosa yellow to be exact. Spring time is just around the corner and the sharp lines and dark colors of winter are taking a back seat to soft, flowing silhouettes and bright colors. Take a cue from the change of tone in fashion and lighten up your jewelry gem color scheme as well.
Think of warm tones like yellows and oranges. Anything that will add a vibrant burst of color to your ensemble. If you are not a fan of the warmer colors that are going to be hot this Spring, you can still inject some color into your wardrobe with what industry insiders like to call hot-colors-that-feel-cool. Hues like Caribbean Blue and Aqua Sky work well with softer color schemes. Think of an exotic vacation as your inspiration for choosing your jewelry color scheme this Spring. Picture the crystal-clear blue waters of the ocean and the dusty-orange sunset.
A New Style for Spring is…..
A bohemian, worldly look. The bohemian look exudes effortless style with a nod to all things natural. Jean shorts, oversized tunics and long maxi dresses present the perfect canvas for adding bold jewelry. Look for rich colors like chocolates, greens and burnt oranges. Accessorize your attire with layered bangles, jade jewelry and anything that incorporates wood into the design. “Boho chic” is a relaxed approach to fashion but the earthy look certainly doesn’t sacrifice style.
Don’t Forget About Romance…..
An elegant, romantic look will always be in fashion; especially during the spring. A lot of designers flaunted soft, floral blouses and dresses on their runways in homage to the season. A lot of jewelry designs this year are inspired by a romantic look as well. The lines are softer and are designed to accentuate a woman’s feminine physique.
Every woman has that little girl inside of her that loves to play dress up. Good news…costume jewelry and statement pieces are back in fashion. Everyone was raving about some of this year’s jewelry designs at the Oscar’s on the red carpet. Designers have already come out with affordable versions of coveted jewels. Don’t be afraid to buy jewelry that features large embellishments and glistening crystals. Semi-precious are replacing precious stones and are liberally displayed throughout the latest designs. Designers are making sure that beautiful jewelry is available to fashion mavens no matter how much they can spend. Wearing opulent jewelry has never been so in vogue.
