Statement Accessories for Everyday

Watercolor statement jewelry.

While most risks in fashion don’t intimidate me (i.e. crop tops, socks with sandals, pattern mixing), there is something daunting about a truly special piece of jewelry. While fabulous for formal occasions, statement accessories usually aren’t in the running when choosing an outfit each morning—they seem too precious to wear, too self-indulgent. Lately, however, I’ve noticed a trend that has inspired me to take my fine accessories out of my jewelry box. There’s something about flashy pieces with casual attire that exudes confidence. The thrill is in the unexpected—a crystal ear cuff with a messy topknot, an extravagant necklace under the collar of a chambray shirt, or a cocktail ring with distressed jeans. The right piece has the ability to breathe life into basics or completely transform even our laziest outfits. It’s time to get away from goes-with-everything jewelry and reach for something bigger, brighter, and bolder.
