Look Chic Despite The Heat With Great Jewelry

By Amy Bailey — June 30, 2014

Summer is here and even though we may be schlepping around in our cut offs and sandals, that doesn’t mean we cannot put our bling on. In fact the easiest way to spruce up a casual look is to accessorize with great jewelry.

Color Me Rad:

This summer neon and pastels are in. If the bold, bright neon colors aren’t your style, you can add some soft, feminine pastels to your wardrobe. Color is an ongoing trend in the jewelry world and it is just so fun.

Go Big or Go Home:

You know the saying, “Go big or go home” well the same is true for this year in jewelry. Don’t be afraid to show off some big jewelry, like big earrings, thick cuffs, and chunky rings.

Did Someone Say Gatsby:

The Great Gatsby is playing a big roll in summer fashion trends. Layered bracelets and long necklaces, fun and flirty pendants and rings are in this season. Tiffany’s even came out with an exclusively art deco designed line for the film. You can find beautiful art deco pieces at Levy’s Fine Jewelry in Birmingham.

Pea Green With Envy:

We know 2013’s pantone color of the year is green. But, it’s also cool to go green with jewelry too. Emerald green and mint green are two shades that are popping up everywhere. Green can really make your outfit pop.

In The Nick of Time:

Watches are back and in all styles; sparkly, sporty, classic, colorful. It’s not about telling time anymore, it’s about fashion. If you don’t own a great watch you should and did you know you can own a vintage designer one for a fraction of the cost at Levy’s Fine Jewelry?

It’s A Wrap:

Wrap bracelets both leather and woven are trending right now. Remember those days when we were kids and wore 10 friendship bracelets? Same concept only higher quality. Find this look with brands like Gorjana and Hipanema.

Go For The Gold:

Gold is hot this season. Not just yellow gold, but colored gold, like rose (or pink). Rose looks good on every skin tone and is super feminine and flirty; a huge trend for those summer weddings.
