Mundane Things
Be bejeweled and bedazzled by blinding flares of rhinestones and bling.
lothing is taking a step back this season to embrace the luscious shackles of jewelry. Absolutely any outfit can be quickly modernized simply by putting on a statement necklace: chunky gold chains and screaming gems are pumping, as heavy rhinestones blind any onlooker. Don’t worry if it seems like a little too much, the motto this season is: the more the merrier.

Striking accessories flooded all possible brands, which make it impossible even for the most conservative customer to resist. The brand Shourouk hits the stop producing the ultimate neck pieces and earrings. Their crystals are perfectly arranged in the colors of the rainbow. Monochrome and solid colored outfits especially allow these stellar jewels to stand out. Dolce and Gabbana created huge luxurious baroque ornaments and even crowns, so that any woman can feel like a queen.

Images of a perfectly pampered 50’s housewife reign spectacularly. However, it won’t be your typical Bree Van de Kamp look. As we all know, the one garnish any vintage housewife can’t go without is a pearl necklace. If price was an issue, now there is a great selection for any budget. Furthermore, there is no shame in wearing faux pearls. Designers even insist that we do. The best way to outweigh your neighbor now would be by putting on some oversized pearls. This trend will even carry onto the next season, as seen in Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Spring catwalk. So, why not make it an investment? Christian Dior and Rosantica have an especially mouthwatering range.

Although fine jewelry will always win and give that authentic glow, sadly at this time of year they just might simply not be noticed alongside brand new emphasized pieces. Extra large bijou will make ordinary outfits much more playful and informal. Astonishing earrings can be found at Oscar de la Renta as well as Kenneth Jay Lane. Glitzy glimmer or feathered tassel, turn on your feminine side and claim victory!
