Chain Link and Confident

Sometimes hardware can be just that: hard.  But sometimes it can offer a certain sense of weight that gives an accessory a confident presence.  We see this most often with large jewelry- take for instance the larger masculine style watches that are in right now.  When you look at them, they seem hefty, but still sleek and sophisticated on a woman.

Today I want to feature a similar situation with a type of jewelry style that is popular right now: chain link.

SO sophisticated.  But it demands some confident attention. 

I really like the mix of metal here, makes the piece eye catching.

Juicy Couture, Convertible chain bracelet, $30
I really love this double duty necklace/bracelet! So fun with jeans or a white button down.

Banana Republic, Fringed link earring, $35
These are so feminine but in a 'I just threw these on' kind of way.

Some jewelry is meant to be delicate while other styles aim to make a harsher statement.  Chain link style is definitely making that a priority.  Try mixing it with silk or softer colors to contrast the metal.

Be fabulous today!
