Spring Accessories

Spring is a season associated with flowers, sun, and rebirth. Similarly, Spring accessories are flirty, colorful, and bright. The sunflower brooch above is just that and can be worn on a purse, scarf or belt to give your outfit that Spring touch.

The bohemian style is very popular in Spring. Wearing long necklaces with larger bags is in season. A pair of brightly colored shoes or a big, shiny ring like the one to the right can also add to a look.

Summer Jewelry Accessories

Summer is full of color, energy and adventure as are the trends of this season. The most popular colors of summer are yellow and turquoise. Finding jewelry for summer is easy, but because many pieces are bold, finding the right ones to wear together can be difficult.

Try wearing a few, simple pieces with small accents (like a single bead on an earring). Then choose one bold piece to draw attention. Necklaces are great pieces in summer and can make a simple sun dress look expensive.

Fall Jewelry Accessories

Fall is associated with rich, warm colors. Topaz, red, brown, gold and orange become popular colors in Fall. This style is inspired by the falling leaves from trees in the Northern hemisphere during the autumn season.

When accessorizing for fall, you may want to add a scarf to your outfit to keep warm. To dress up your warmer clothing, accessorize with brooches and pins to give your clothing that unique look. Wearing a brooch on a scarf can give it that special touch if the colors accent each other aesthetically.

Have you ever worn a brooch on a scarf?

Winter Jewelry Accessories

Winter is the time to break out all of your vintage jewelry and mix it with sparkle. Light blues and rich combinations like red and green are in style during the winter season.

Bold jewelry that has a vintage look is appreciated in winter. Large necklaces and extravagant, chandelier earrings are in as well as brooches and pins. Complete your winter look with classic jewelry and creative, artsy designs like the ones in the photos to the right.

Do you wear less jewelry in the winter because it doesn't go with your warm clothing?
