Jewelry: Big, bold, and glamorous. Stack on the rings, wear big cuffs and colorful bright jewels. In my opinion, gold over silver, wear as many rings as you can, and either go big with jewelry or your outfit, not both. I love layering multiple necklaces but then wearing subtle or no earrings. Here are a few of my favorite picks. Items from Rachel Zoe's new line for qvc are mixed in as well as pieces from Topshop. Shopbop.com also has a great trend guide if you are ever in need and carries oodles of great designers.
Bags: I'm seeing a lot of snakeskin, (which I'm not a fan of), long chains, and bucket shaped bags. Studs are still a big trend as well as fringe. If you go with a studded bag...please don't pair with studded shoes and jacket as well. You don't want to over do any one trend, but rather make it yours by integrating your personal style in with a couple of fads of the season. I'm going to be honest...most of my handbags come from thrift stores.
