Our Favorite Beach Jewelry Brands in 2014
Beach jewelry has always been one of our favorite accessories at The Orchid Boutique, to compliment any beachwear or resort wear outfit. If you're going to style up your swimwear, why not add a little complimentary shine? Bracelets can add that boho chic style that you so desperately crave, while long chain necklaces draw more attention to your neck than your halter top!
Why do accessories matter, you ask? It's simple, really. Clothing may make up the crux of an outfit, but accessories are much more significant than we realize. You may find yourself deciding over which accessories to wear more often than the clothing itself. In the immortal words of Giorgio Armani, "Accessories are important and are becoming more and more important every day".
Ultimately, accessories should have an equal amount of significance in your outfit, working together with the wardrobe to create your ultimate sense of style. Just like clothing, accessories are occasion particular. So, we want to dive into what makes beach jewelry so fashionable and fun.
It's just like when you're dressing up an outfit for an evening out. You would search for the perfect accessories to completely finish the look. So why not use that same mentality when styling your beachwear? Beach accessories are just as important to completing that surf side look.
Check out some of our favorite pieces to add to any beach outing. 2014 is the year of the beach accessory which is why we want to show you our favorites finds for the upcoming swimwear season.
We love Serefina Jewelry because it combines the stylish trends we look for in beach accessories while also supporting hand-crafted details and embellishments. Hand-made art + modern sensibility. The brand itself has only been around for a few years, yet their latest 2014 collection is packing a punch. With vibrantly colorful bracelets and long chain necklaces, their pieces are whimsical yet exquisite.
Gorjana Jewelry has been around for quite some time and has been features in many different magazines such as InStyle, People, Shape, and Lucky. The brand features chic and trendy pieces that are coveted by celebrities and fashion icons alike. Gorjana jewelry features 18k gold plating and high quality sterling silver. With hand-crafted pieces, Gorjana sure knows how to add shine and shimmer to any outfit, beachwear or street wear.
One of the top trends in 2014 will be Hipanema bracelets. These colorful pops of style will jazz up any beach outfit creating the perfect union between boho trend and fashion. The Hipanema brand all began when two friends went to Rio and fell in love with their hand-beaded jewelry made from pearls, seashells and multicolored thread. Brazilian bracelets with a fashionable twist.
Lolindo Jewelry combines dainty, chic, and romantically modern which transcends into elegantly charming accessories. The designer behind the Lolindo brand, Catalina, finds her inspiration by reminiscing about her childhood days, when she once rummaged through her grandmother's jewelry box and secretly tried on vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces. Lolindo jewelry stands for the creation of feminine and budget conscious pieces for modern fashionistas.
Made is one of our favorite accessories brands, because they create beautiful, hand-made products in a workshop that operates under ethical and fairtrade principles. Besides having fabulous pieces, this brand teaches new skills and provides opportunities for all of their Kenyan employees. Made uses many local African resources in the design and production of its jewelry, including African batik beads, recycled glass, brass, and wood.
Accessories emphasize your own personal style and taste. Depending on the piece, you can most certainly pair different accessories a multitude of ways. Clothing may be what you spend a majority of your time shopping for, but accessories are the solidifying pieces that you need to complete your overall look.
On their own, a necklace, bracelet, or pair of earrings may not make much of an impact. However, when combined with different outfits, accessories help create a solid look. Accessories matter just a much as clothing, providing you an entirely new opportunity to express yourself. Thanks to accessories, you can create a more personalized style from head to toe.
