I’m a plain jane dresser by nature, especially in the summer. Give me a pair of jeans and a plain white tank and I’m good. Show me a rack of solid colored maxi-dresses and I’ll pick a few up in several hues. Khaki shorts with strapless top – another summer staple.Ã‚Â But how do I turn the boring into something more fun? I add a piece of jewelry that makes a statement. A piece of jewelry that’s bold, sometimes bright and always a little bit fun.
Being a mother doesn’t require that we keep things drab. Sure, my personal style is more “Jennifer Aniston” when it comes to the clothing I buy. I’m not a fan of wild prints or patterns; I like clean lines and I usually pull the color and current trends in through my accessoriesÃ‚Â - so that’s where statement jewelry comes in.
When you’re not a coral pants or leopard dress kind of gal, infusing it on the neckline or wearing the shoes is a much easier transition into the bold fashion arena. Personally, I have remained in the bold accessory realm permanently because that’s where my individual sense of style feels most comfortable. I throw on a bold necklace like the one pictured with my jeans and tee and my outfit is instantly elevated.
When I’m wearing a pair of those khaki shorts and a plain top, the colorful bangles punch things up a bit. Finally, my answer to the yoga pantsÃ‚Â -Ã‚Â the maxi dress. Add tousled up-do and those beautifulÃ‚Â turquoise earrings as a pop of color and I am a frumpy mom no more!
My favorite company to keep watch for fun statement jewelry is Stella and Dot. Admittedly, some of their biggest pieces are pricey, which is why you have to host a Girls Night In to earn them for free as a hostess – it’s well worth it. Their jewelry is fun, trendy and perfect from season to season because it’s quality and lasts and what a fantastic excuse for a party, no?
What’s your favorite way to elevate a look? Do you have a go-to jewelry company for statement pieces like these?Ã‚Â
