Fashion trends come and go. We all have those trendy jewelry pieces that were scorching hot last year and now…well…let’s just say they are ice cold. Trendy jewelry allows the masses to emulate style that are worn by the trendsetters of society: actresses, musicians and socialites. High end designers debut these pieces on the runway, then in their stores and soon the rest of the world is wearing a less-expensive version of the original.

These look great when they are in vogue, but can be embarrassing when they have lost their luster. Remember when “Sex and the City” was popular and everyone was wearing their version of the “Carrie” necklace. You probably have one that is conveniently tucked away at the bottom of your jewelry box. It’s great to be on trend, but there are some accessories that are so flexible they will look great with a good portion of your wardrobe and will never go out of style.

Versatile accessories are a fashion maven’s best friends. These key pieces should be staples in your jewelry arsenal and can save you a lot of money. Think about how many accessories you own that would look great with your favorite pair of jeans, a little black dress or a sleek suit for the office. If you are not sure what you need to add, don’t worry. Our list should keep you looking fashionably savvy through spring, summer, fall and winter.

 A Great Pair of Hoops

 A medium to large hoop earring is one of the most basic accessories that you can ever own. They can complete a number of looks just by changing your hair. Wearing your hair up in an updo with a pair of sterling silver hoops gives you a classic look. Loose curls cascading down your back with a pair of gold over sterling silver hoops gives you a chic Bohemian vibe. A pair of simple hoops look great on every woman because they elongate the face shape and highlight the jaw line. A pair of both gold and sterling silver hoops is a great style investment that transcends time and trends.

 A Bold Necklace

  Although statement necklaces are on trend right now, a bold necklace is an important accessory that has the power to transform any given ensemble. These necklaces should be rendered from sterling silver, gold or gold over sterling silver and have a classic shape. Avoid statement necklaces that are embellished with intense colors or themes, those are great accessories for right now but will ultimately be suited to match only a few outfits. Take your time in finding a great necklace that takes your signature look to the next level of style.                                     

Signature Bracelet

 A signature bracelet is an investment that every woman should make. These bracelets are fashioned from either sterling silver or gold and possess a classic, sophisticated design. Its design should have the power to share a side of your personality with the world as well as flaunt your fashion savvy. A good bracelet should be able to take your look from day to night, whether you are wearing a great pair of jeans or a power suit.

 A Classic Ring

 Rings are one of the easiest ways to gage a woman’s personality. Think about it, it takes a certain type of individual to pull off an ostentatious cocktail ring that is dripping with gemstones and Renaissance-style designs. There are certain places or events when those types of rings can work but they are not suited for everyday wear. Although we all like to change our look depending on our mood from time to time, a great ring should be able to complete a majority of your wardrobe. Remember, the perfect ring will always amplify your signature style.

A designer at Yves St. Laurent once said that “Fashion fades, style is eternal.” The message behind these words is one that each woman should heed. Aspects of your look may change from year to year depending on the current trend, but overtime you will find that certain looks just seem to fit your personality. Making the right choices on some essential pieces can help cultivate your signature style.
