{STYLE} Costume Jewels

I have always, always been a serious magpie, and even while I flirt with more minimal styles, jewelry (especially of the sparkling variety) continue to be a major point of weakness for me. Ever since I was first introduced to BaubleBar a few years ago, then just a tiny, baby start­-up, it has been a destination for me when shopping for on­-trend costume jewelry. All that glitters may not be gold, but when it comes to finding statement pieces at competitive prices, it cannot be beat, (and I love cashing in on my vault points, too!)

This summer, I'm holding onto some of my classic pearl­-and-crystal styles, while also enjoying their more minimal motifs ­ especially their choker and collar necklaces. The Taurus Collar, aptly named for my zodiac, has been in heavy rotation the last couple of months (after all, I had to revel in the Taurus sun while it was around), with these malachite and marble­look earrings making a perfect complement. It doesn't hurt that these face­-framing statement pieces are perfect pairings with the off­-the­-shoulder looks that have been dominating the runways and the street style set.

While I still abide by the Coco Chanel adage of removing one accessory before heading out the door, I will never stop layering and mixing­-and­-matching statement jewels to play up my looks. Even the simplest of outfits -­ jeans and a t­-shirt, a low­-key LBD -can be completely transformed with a bit of jewelry; being able to diversify our wardrobe staples is a major key to my styling successes.
