Gotta Have That…Shopping Finds! – Summer Jewels

Last week, we here at Blast investigated all that is “hot” in summer 2014 swimwear. But this week, it’s all about dressing your look up with a few simple additions. What jewelry pieces are perfect staples for the summer 2014 season? We’ve done the research.

Add a pop of electric, neon color into your wardrobe without blinding bystanders with a piece of jewelry that tactfully incorporates such a hue. Earrings with a lime green stone accent or even one or two bright pink bangles can make a statement without being too flashy. Make sure that you tone down your clothing colors a notch if you opt for bright jewels. Best of all, a pop of electric color looks amazing against bronzed, summer skin.

Pretty in Pastel
Pastel pieces offer a touch of sophistication to the basic neutral tones of the daily workplace wardrobe. They also add a sweet touch to a sundress and sandals ensemble, perfect for dinner out on the town.

In the Rough
Raw stones make a bold yet chic statement and complement the boho look incredibly well. Sport a quartz cuff or turquoise necklace to the beach for to add an instant, effortless touch of “chic” to your otherwise casual beachwear.

Geometrically Speaking
Stylized geometric shapes are popping up everywhere in this season’s hottest jewelry pieces. These necklaces, rings, earrings, and even futuristic cut-out bangles offer a streamlined way to stand out from the crowd. Go smaller with a pair of triangular earrings, or splurge for the signature House of Harlow geometric collar necklace, with shapes available in a range of colors and textures.

Animal Instincts
Animal inspired jewelry is exotic, powerful, and a playful addition to your summertime ensemble. Incorporate a little wildlife your jewelry collection and take your look to the next level.

Wrap It Up
Wrap bracelets are easy, comfortable, and very on-trend for the summer 2014 season. Wraps are meant to be paired with other pieces, so feel free to mix and match with your go-to watch from last season or a chunkier bracelet that needs a little extra love. End result – an effortlessly fun look that tells a story of your jewelry favorites both past and present.
