When you're writing a paper, it doesn't matter what details you support your argument with, right? Wrong. So when it comes to your outfit, why should it be any different? From the classroom, to your closet, this year is all about the details. That's right, we're talking about statement jewelry. Adding a bit of sparkle is the perfect way to dress up your outfit whether you're going to class or formal. From your neck to your fingers, there are so many different ways to accessorize. Here are some of our favorites:
1. Midi Rings
These delicate rings sit right above your knuckle, making them a small but trendy addition to any outfit. For even more sparkle, layer your rings or wear them on multiple fingers like in look #2. This accessory is bound to dress up your next mani whether you wear just one or experiment with layering.
2. Statement (oversized!) Earrings
If you're not into big necklaces, oversized earrings are the way to go. These gems are perfect for adding a major statement to your strapless formal dress. Plus, if you're looking for a way to step-up your internship or class wardrobe, wear oversized studs with a button down shirt and dress pants (for work) or jeans.
3. Statement Necklaces
With so many style options to choose from, it's no wonder statement necklaces are the jewelry trend of choice this semester. Wear an oversized pendant with a v-neck shirt or a bib necklace with a high neck sweater or collared shirt. Add a pop of color to your winter blacks to brighten up your outfit on the coldest of days. Or, choose a metal necklace to glam up your party outfit. Wearing different statement necklaces can completely change up your look from day to day even if you're just wearing the same sweater!
4. Spiked Bracelets
Want to add some edge to your look? Pull one of these stretchy bracelets over the sleeves on your favorite sweater. For a festive holiday look, choose a gold piece and layer it on top of red. For an icey winter look, pair silver with royal blue. Choose between anything from sparkle covered studs to fringe spikes. You'll be feeling like a rock star in no time.
5. Subtle Sparkle
A mini necklace is the perfect way to accessorize a larger statement necklace. Whether you're pairing an oversized bib with a small strand or just wearing multiple tiny necklaces, play with sizes to create the ultimate layered look. Plus, you can wear your favorite subtle sparkle everyday no matter what other details you add to your outfit to create your own signature look.
