Not everything that glitters is gold, but it certainly is for this Fashionista. Some like to believe that shoes make or break an outfit; while that may be true on some occasions, for others, I believe that jewelry can be the perfect completion. When our favorite celebs take a walk down the red carpet, a lot of the time our eyes end up focusing on a shiny piece (or pieces) that happen to stand out.
For instance, during this year’s Oscars, Charlize Theron strutted her way down the red carpet in a whopping 15 million dollars worth of Harry Winston jewels. Yes, 15 million dollars worth of diamonds! That isn’t realistic for us college students, but we’re still allowed to dream right? Sticking to our budgets, we can find ways to opt for pieces like the ones our lovely Fashionista here is sporting.
Statement necklaces are an absolute must-have for every girl’s jewelry collection. They’re fierce in design, and if you’re more of a minimalist, they’re really all you need to wear. Some of us who are a little more daring will add a few extra pieces anyway. I loved how she managed to add a variety of bracelets to her look, and a couple of rings as well. Since she chose to wear an outfit that consisted of simple pieces, this amount of jewelry was perfect for her look, and stood out as it should.
How To: You too can wear a variety of jewelry without looking like you just threw on everything you owned! In order to do so, keep your outfit simple and let your jewelry be the star of the show. Put on a crisp white button-down, a pair of boyfriend jeans and finish the look off with some booties or sandals.
