Accessories Report

Small or large, real or fake, understated or dramatic, jewelry lifts a look. It takes your outfit to a level it wouldn’t be otherwise. While jewelry is pretty personal and is often given as gifts, it is also a significant reflection of your individual style and spirit. Everyone knows that one girl who doesn’t leave the house without adorning herself in numerous bracelets, rings and other baubles. Then there is the friend who has a simple, signature necklace that she never takes off. No matter your preference, it is all about adding a little interest to your look.

The Fashionista I saw this week opted for earrings that are simplistic, edgy and just plain cool. If you have more than one piercing on your ears, this is an amazing look to imitate.  She keeps her stud earrings simple so it isn’t overwhelming. Yet, the combination of each simple stud is effective. It is something you might not notice right away, but when you do see it, you wish you had the same look! Plus, it goes perfectly with the rest of her outfit. The striped skirt is bold and her classic denim jacket is so cool. Plus, her earrings in tandem with her red lipstick draw all the attention to her gorgeous face.

Simple stud earrings can work with almost any look. Also, don’t feel like you have to have the same combination of studs every time. It is actually best to mix-and-match. Find a unique vintage pair out of your mom’s closet and then go buy the coolest new pair at your favorite store. This is what makes jewelry so awesome. It is entirely unique to you. Mix diamonds and metal, stones and pearls. Have fun with it!
