Don't we all want to look classy in the office environment? It doesn't have to cost a fortune though! Here is our proposition on getting the same office look for a fraction of the price. Pair our long pearl necklace with tailored pants and a chiffon blouse for an understated office chic.
Sugary pastels are one of the most prominent fashion trends for Spring/Summer 2012. After few seasons of bold, in-your-face shades, we are going back to the feminine feel of soft colors.
Don’t get me wrong, daring colors are still very much in, but now we have a choice between a fashion statement of neon pinks and femininity declaration of pale corals.
How to pick the right jewelry for the pastel trend to avoid a sugar overdose? You can pair light-colored clothes with statement necklaces, such as Katia pearl collar, or with chunky bracelets, just like the pearl and amethyst bracelet Kim. Supersized jewels will sharpen the overall soft look. As for the colors, gold-plated metals are great, and so are black and white pearls.
Yesterday I did a quick run through the usual clothing chain
stores to see what’s there for the next season. Although we are still in the
middle of winter, the shelves were already filled with spring frocks, bursting
in colors! Hot pinks, tangerines, electric blues, you name it! Then I saw them. I
saw many girls browsing through the racks, but very few daring to try anything
on. After all, who in their sanity of mind would remove her layers of clothes
just to try a top that she would only be able to wear in 3 months? Aha!
Then I noticed crowds of girls circulating in the accessories
section. I understood. Cute earrings, chunky rings, pretty necklaces, they give us the warm
feeling of getting ready for the spring without too much guilt involved. Snatching a nice jewel for the newest collection gets us our return on investment from day one as we can wear our new breathtaking necklace on the very same day!
The Lacrima Bianca pearl lariat has this versatility. Very simple in design, you can wear it with an office shirt
tomorrow or with a pretty feminine dress in few months (check out our styling
propositions below). Right now, it has an additional advantage: you can win it
in a giveaway! We have teamed up with Roni from Beads by Roni, an
incorrigible bead lover, to offer you a chance to win your new pre-spring
accessory. The Giveaway details and entry forms are posted on Roni's blog.
