IFB is all about jewelry for this week’s project. When it comes to shopping for jewelry, there are noticeable trends in stores right now. The best part is, they are all easy to incorporate into your current style. Below are little tidbits of where my jewelry came from and how you can style each of these trends.
Stacked Bracelets – Skulls, Spikes, and Chunky Watches
Wrists are piled high this season, and the first essential piece for this trend is a classic watch. Big, chunky watches look great alone as well as with other bracelets stacked around it. Investing in a quality watch is the best option if you plan on wearing it daily. My dad gave me the Marc by Marc Jacobs watch pictured below for my 23rd birthday. I wear it every day for because of the sentimental value, but it also adds a nice touch to all my outfits regardless of the style.
Skulls and spikes are everywhere in fashion right now. The quickest way to incorporate this edgy trend into your style is with the stacked bracelet method. Stretchable bracelets are easier to handle than cuffs, but a solid cuff with small skulls on the end makes for a very chic look.
Multiple Rings – Small, Crosses, and Words
Huge cocktail rings are a thing of the past. Now, it’s all about filling your fingers with multiple small rings. Most stores are selling dainty rings as a set, so you don’t have to shell out a lot of money to be a part of this trend. Mix and match small rings with midi rings for a unique look.
The ring above is a friendship ring, given to me by one of my good friends whom I met at my last job. There’s something very special about receiving gifts on a regular day. The two front rings below are items I found at Buffalo Exchange for a cheap price. As mentioned earlier, you don’t have to spend a lot to find good rings. Thrift shops often have hidden gems, you just have to be willing to look.
Geo necklaces – Statement and Drop
While this season’s focus is mainly on the hands and wrists, necklaces have their place too. And their place lies with angles. Both statement and long necklaces are all about geometric shapes, triangles in particular. The angular designs balance out a lot of the softer fashion trends, like floral print and flowy dresses. Urban Outfitters has a good selection of angled pieces, which is where I bought the first two necklaces pictured below.
