White Shorts/Gold Cuff Bracelet
Summer days call for crisp white shorts and colorful tops. Make it your go-to uniform for weekend outings. Maximize pocket interest by wearing one of OBJ’s favorite summer jewelry must-haves: a wide gold cuff bracelet to show off your glowing tan.
Classic Jean Jacket/Silver Hoops
The metal studs on a blue jean jacket take on new luster with the right pair of sterling silver hoops. I read somewhere that hoop-style earrings take ten years off your face. Try them – you’ll be immediately transported to your younger days! Wear your jean jacket with your white shorts (above), or a flirty dress (below). It’s a perfect summertime wardrobe-maker.
Feminine Dress/Statement Necklace
This summer’s can’t-miss dress has a fitted waist and a fuller (sometimes gently pleated) skirt. If you choose a solid color try a bold statement necklace in faux jewels. Prefer a floral dress? Buy some big monochromatic beads or a twisted triple strand of pearls.
Wide-leg Trousers/Longer Chains
Invest in a pair of flared-leg trousers or pajama-style pants and have fun dressing them up or down. This season’s popular crop tops create a new silhouette, so layer on longer chains to balance the wide-leg look.
Wild Card: Designer Sweatshirt/Costume Brooch
The athletic look is here to stay: sweatshirts and hoodies ruled the runways in the spring and fall collections. I love the juxtaposition of a zip-up terry with a faux jewel brooch. Whimsical and offbeat, it’s a great look for cool summer evenings at the beach.
Summer is a great time to experiment with jewelry worn in new ways. So make sure you have these summer jewelry must-haves to mix and match with your warm-weather fashion basics.
Get out there and dazzle!
