Update Your Spring Jewelry Wardrobe: What to Buy or Repurpose

Congratulations…you’ve made it to Spring 2015! It’s time to update your spring jewelry wardrobe with a few new and carefully repurposed pieces. You don’t have to spend a fortune to refresh your jewelry collection. Here are four ideas I recommend to help you greet the season with renewed sparkle.

Clip One On

Bejeweled hair accessories are bigger and bolder than ever. Take a page from Dolce & Gabbana’s book and wear a vintage brooch or clip-on earring in your hair, or on a headband. Also consider attaching a pair of clip-ons to the flap of an envelope clutch bag for an instant designer look.

Layer Your Lockets

Whether they’re gold, silver or both, layer your lockets, charms and found objects on cords and chains. Embrace the haute-hippie style that is so on-trend this season…and don’t be afraid to mix things up. Combine vintage with new pieces for the “time-traveler” look (more on that in a future post).

Leather & Luxe

Be creative with new ways to wear what you already own. I recently discovered I had two gold-plated monogram pins in my jewelry box. I took one of them to be dipped in silver and fastened it to a braided leather cord that wraps around my wrist several times. Terrific.

Five-Finger Exercise

Like the multiple ring effect? There are two ways to update your spring jewelry wardrobe with rings: Buy a between-the-finger ring (or several), or wear all your rings stacked up on each hand. Credit this trend to the current rage for all things ‘70s. It’s here to stay through Winter 2016, I’m told, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves….
