Ahhh….the lazy days of Summer. Our clothing is getting lighter, we tend to show more skin and the choices for accessories are getting bolder. This season is a great time to experiment with different accessory looks, bold color schemes and brazen designs. It’s about to get really hot…so, here are a few ideas for jewelry that will keep you looking cool and fashionably fierce at the same time. Fun and flirty, these looks are a great way to stay chill all Summer long.
Sleek and shiny, metallics are a great way to look cool on those hot, summer nights. These sleek designs are simple and straight-forward yet bold enough to be worn alone. In stead of wearing your standard sterling silver jewelry, try designs that incorporate geometric shapes and exaggerated lines. Since the color is muted, you can afford to go bigger in scale with the design. Metallic hues are also a great compliment to your summer whites. These statement pieces are perfect accessories for the modern minimalist.
On a hot summer day, nothing sounds better than taking a dip in a pool or wading through the waters of the Caribbean Sea. What do these two bodies of water have in common? The color blue. Blue has always had a tranquil and cooling affect on the senses. So, this summer add a vibrant burst of color to your wardrobe while keeping your season chill. These gorgeous sky blue topaz pieces will brighten up those plain maxi dresses and lightweight, summer tee shirts.
When we think of the sea, we envision a cool and blue never-ending body of water. Fish, turtles and sea shells are all things that are reminiscent of the ocean and thus evoke a feeling of tranquility. Adding nautical themed jewelry to your Summer wardrobe is a great way to show your fearless sense of fashion and look cool, calm and collected at the same time.
Coco Chanel once said, “In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” Although we all like to know what is hot in the fashion world it is important to figure out what looks work on you and what makes you feel comfortable. Accessories are different than clothing in that everyone, no matter your height or size, can try out a myriad of looks. It’s all about personality. Any of these pieces will keep you looking and feeling cool this Summer season.
