Revitalize Your Wardrobe with These Must-Have Accessories

The right accessories put the finishing touches on any look, and having the latest fashion jewelry can go a long way in revitalizing your wardrobe. Another good thing about accessories is they are often more affordable than clothes, allowing you to splurge on different new looks without overspending.

It takes guts to pull off a statement piece, but if you can do it, you can completely change the look of an outfit. The key to making statement pieces work is to keep the rest of your outfit subtle and wear only one or two bold pieces at a time.

1. Floral Romance

His floral necklaces, earrings and hair accessories demonstrate the natural beauty and girlish charm of these pieces. Create a fun bohemian look by matching the latest fashion jewelry florals with a casual blouse and a pair of jeans, or wear your flowers with a dressier ensemble to look fresh and sweet for date night.

Hand chains are huge this year, with celebrities like Miley Cyrus, Vanessa Hudgens, Kelly Clarkson and Rihanna all spotted sporting the trend. Hand chains really play up the bohemian feel of an outfit. They look gorgeous when paired with a flowing skirt and a few pretty bangles in a matching metal.

3. Versatile Brown Leather in Jewelry

Brown leather looks great with a variety of colors and textures, and it somehow works no matter what the season is. This is why it’s one of the latest fashion jewelry trends that’s best for sprucing up your wardrobe anytime. The 2014 Donna Karan collection includes some neat leather statement necklaces that have a modern, classy feel. Fendi also has a cute leather flower choker blending two of the season’s latest trends.

There was a lot of turquoise and other blue gemstones on the runways this season. Blue reminds us of fairy tales and looks fresh and modern when paired with smooth metals and clean lines, but it also works in more rustic-looking pieces. Whether you wear cowgirl boots or a little black dress, adding some blue accessories will look beautiful. If you’re not a fan of turquoise, kyanite is another pretty gemstone that works.

5. Hip Linked-Chain Necklaces

Chain necklaces were a big trend on the runways this year, showing up in collections from Valentino, Rodarte and many other designers. Opting for a few delicate necklaces rather than wearing one giant statement piece is a good option if you have a petite frame.
