The quickest way to perk up your summer fashions is with some bright, fun beaded jewelry. Necklaces, bracelets, earrings, wear them all. Mix and match; pieces don’t have to be exact matches anymore in order to look great together. If you’re wearing beads, like in the photos above, they just have to relate to each other and have at least one color that’s the same in the two or three different pieces.
Keep categories together. For example; wear stone necklaces with earrings that have stones in them. Don’t mix stones and wood. Wear brown and tan woods with other colors of wood on other pieces, but don’t mix the wood with stones. It’s fine to mix some gold OR silver with either beads or wood, but just don’t mix them all together or it will look like the junk bin at a garage sale.
Two colors that are big this spring are coral and aqua. That’s super, because some shade of both coral and aqua flatters everyone. Plus, both of these colors are fresh and summery; perfect for warm weather.
