ALL IN THE DETAILS: Make A Statement

Sadly the time has come….back to school. Looking back, I feel like the last three months flashed before my eyes. Goodbye freedom, Netflix and endless amounts of ice cream. The only good part about the next few weeks is fall shopping. Who doesn’t love picking up some new finds and wearing the hottest trends for the upcoming season? We all want to find clothes that will impress our friends who we haven’t seen all summer (and of course show off that summer tan). While the summer weather is here, it’s easy to mix and match fall wear with summer wear. However, while picking out an outfit, how does one pick out the right jewelry? Two words: statement jewelry!

One trend I loved this past summer was wearing statement pieces and different jewelry that really dressed up basic tops and tanks. Just because you are trying to stay comfy and cool doesn’t mean you have to give up being trendy. When I saw this Fashionista I was instantly drawn to her sparkly J.Crew statement necklace! This necklace dressed up her basic black and white look. The key to statement jewelry is keeping everything else simple. This Fashionista kept the main focus on the necklace and added other simple details such as her lip color and few bangles.

How To: Statement jewelry is a great transition piece from season to season. It’s great for dressing up your basic summer look or for your stylish fall look. Try pairing your favorite denim button-up with a big necklace tucked under the collar and put on some booties—you’re good to go.
