As we find ourselves peeling off layers of winter-weary sweaters and jackets, it’s not too soon to start thinking about summer jewelry. Fashion/accessories designers officially call their collections “Spring/Summer 2013,” but summer styles can differ widely from those of spring.
Each season, fashion and jewelry inspiration comes down from the haute couture and up from the streets, meeting somewhere in the middle in a place called “now.” After Labor Day, it’s all about lightening up…taking ourselves a little less seriously…and throwing caution (finally) to the summer wind.
Here are five hot runway looks guaranteed to add some cool to your summer jewelry wardrobe. Why not shop for them now and get a head start on the season!
Nothing says summer like a pop of white…we love this white enamel bracelet studded in gold For an added twist, wear one on each wrist…or make a bunch of white bangles your signature summer look.
On a Clear Day.
