Purchasing new fashion jewelry and other fashion accessories for your collection, is an inexpensive and fun way to revamp your wardrobe for Summer 2011. It is great to know that there are some fabulous, fashion-forward, jewelry trends that can take a basic maxi dress, or, tank from plain to INSANE! It is even greater to know that fashionable, budget-friendly online boutiques are more than happy to provide an interactive, personalized shopping experience from the comfort of your home.
Here are a few Summer 2011 Jewelry Trends to go shopping for today!
Look for necklaces that are bib and lariat styled. If you are lucky enough to find a fashion necklace that encompasses your entire neckline, you have hit the jackpot! Pair these bold, statement pieces with strapless dresses, or, tops. If you aren’t a fan of the strapless look, find clothing items with plunging necklines to show off your statement necklaces and add a camisole underneath if the neckline is too revealing. Contrary to what some experts may think, pricey does not always mean better looking; there are so many options in fashion jewelry and semi-precious accessories that are more striking in appearance than their luxury counterparts. You can also look for necklaces in the bib or, lariat style made from semi-precious and man-made stones. If you find jewelry made from coral, turquoise, agate and simulated stones, and the price is in your budget, pick them up. You may even come across pieces that look like “neck candy”, made form shimmering rhinestones, crystal and acrylic in deep, saturated colors! These pieces will be fabulous fashion accessories for those simple cocktail gowns for summer weddings.
Tribal and Natural Jewelry
This trend seems to be a constant year-round. You can save money by purchasing pieces that will look great with your leather blazers in the Fall. These pieces will also be made from natural and man-made stones. Also, look for fashion jewelry pieces made from natural wood, horn, husk and any natural material. For extra pizzazz, purchase multiple bangles, and stack them on one arm, or, both.
Textured and Fabric Jewelry
This summer, look for fashion jewelry that is made from newspaper print motifs that may be in the form of enameled accessories. Keep your eyes open for thread-design necklaces and especially earrings. Another huge trend in jewelry that falls under the “textured and fabric category”, are pieces made of beautiful peacock and rainbow-colored feathers; these accessories look very chic with simple tees and ponytails. You may also find bangles that are covered in chic and unique fabric. You can even add hammered metal pieces to wear with your cool, linen slacks and jackets for the office.
Last, but, certainly not least…look for vintage, or, if you aren’t able to find authentic vintage accessories, look for pieces that are vintage-inspired. These will be your brooches, cameo motif earrings and necklaces, and jewelry that has the rose-gold, or, antique-gold look. A good rule of thumb here is, if it reminds you of your grandmother’s jewelry in a fashion-forward way, it will be a fabulous piece of fashion jewelry to add to your summer 2011 collection.
There are few set rules to follow to be able to rock these jewelry trends in style; just find pieces that are inspired by the trends discussed above. Follow your own style, budget and heart and you will always find those ultra-chic, fashion jewelry pieces perfect for you.
