Statement Accessories to Brighten Your Style

4 years ago

It's no secret that I love that feeling that it's finally Friday after a long week. It's also no secret that I love statement jewelry. On any given day, you can see me wearing a handful of colorful jewels. I especially love wearing beautiful, bold pieces in the summer because they provide such a quick, instant upgrade to an otherwise plain and boring outfit! Summer is the perfect season for going bolder and standing out, so you might as well take advantage of it, right?

One of my favorite ways to mix up my style in the summer is to pair a plain striped shirt and peplum skirt (perfect for work or even a girls night out!) with a big chunky necklace and colorful bracelets, like in the collage above. It can totally change the look of an entire outfit in a very inexpensive way, which I think we all can appreciate.

Two of my other go-to looks that I like to wear statement necklaces with are boyfriend jeans and a plain casual top, and then everyone's favorite chambray shirt with shorts. It gives the outfits more of an edge!

Braided Mint Necklace (sold out) / Bow Bangles ($20)  / J.Crew Striped Tee ($45) / Alice + Olivia Peplum Skirt (sold out)

Some of my favorite places to shop for fabulous, inexpensive accessories are: T + J Designs, Bauble Bar, The Rad Market, and Forever21.
