The daily grind:  picking out accessories!  There are a lot of ways to decide what to wear with your outfit.  You can always use my patented (not really) Matching Method, or try a few of these:

Opt for color: One of the best ways is to choose colorful pieces. Colorful jewelry is wonderful for a modern wardrobe because contemporary clothing tends to be neutral. Your collection of black pants, grey sweaters and beige shirt dresses are easily enhanced with bright pink gemstone rings, blue glass drop earrings, purple beaded bracelets and oversized yellow pendants. Use fashionable jewelry to inject your daily look with bright colors & jewel tones.

Choose pieces with personality: The most fashionable outfits are those that match your personal tastes. Rather than selecting the most popular fashion jewelry, choose fashionable jewelry with unique and interesting details.  If you love animals, wear owl necklaces, frog earrings and fox rings. If you like tribal styles, wear leather bracelets and gold stackable rings. Don’t hesitate to wear a unique combination of fashionable jewelry that portrays your individuality.

Get inspiration from another decade: Creating a great look with fashionable jewelry is often as easy as looking to the past. Fashion jewelry includes vintage-inspired pieces that can help you craft a 1960s style or a 1980s outfit. Elongated beaded necklaces go beautifully with long, colorful peasant skirts and smocked sundresses. Leather cuffs will accent your skinny jeans and high-top sneakers perfectly. An oversized gemstone cocktail ring is a fabulous addition to a tailored 1950s dress. Gemstones are not out of the question when shopping for fashion jewelry. Many semi precious gemstones are available in affordable jewelry collections. Look for stunning aquamarine, jade, turquoise, amethyst, marcasite, peridot, garnet and iolite tones when shopping for vintage-inspired fashion jewelry. Choose fashionable jewelry that will help you express your retro side.
