Summer’s here, and it’s time to break out those warm-weather clothes. Whatever your style during the summer months, from sundresses and wedges to jeans and a t-shirt, this season’s accessories are sure to liven up your look. The bold jewelry looks of summer 2012 cover everything from layers of colorful necklaces to bracelets encrusted in crystal beads.
Fortunately, this summer’s jewelry fashion finds are as easy on the pocketbook as they are on the eyes. You don’t have to invest in real gems or precious metals to look amazing. The right fashion jewelry can be just as eye-catching as the real thing.
Layers of Bling
This summer, layering isn’t just for clothes and cakes. Jewelry industry experts cite multiple layers of necklaces, bracelets and rings as one of the season’s hottest trends. There’s no need to worry about wearing too much of a good thing, either. With a nod to the 80s, fashionistas are proudly sporting plenty of different types of jewelry at one time.
In addition to volume, there are plenty of ways to get noticed with jewelry this season. Bold colors are big, and come in the forms of neon hues, sun-drenched citrus colors and various shades of blue. From cyan to bright orange, color-soaked jewelry really punches up your look.
Movement is also key this summer. From dangling chandelier earrings to chunky necklaces with layers of bouncy trinkets, to cuff bracelets dotted with shimmering faux pearls or colored glass, jewelry that moves with you is totally on-trend. There’s nothing more gorgeous than the sun hitting glimmering baubles as you walk or move your hands and head while talking.
Whether your fashion sense is laid-back, tailored, artsy or something in between, you’ll find styles to love in the summer of 2012 jewelry collections. From primary colors to layers of faux gold, crystal beads and cubic zirconia, there’s something for everyone and every budget.
From dressing up to business attire to going completely casual, this season’s jewelry is designed to draw the right kind of attention. Add sparkle to glamorous outfits or throw an unexpectedly flashy element into a subdued ensemble.
Whether you’re headed for a big night out or going to the grocery store, your look can always use a little something extra. You won’t have to break the bank, but you may have to get used to a little more attention than usual.
