Big and colorful statement jewelry. You wear it because you want to be trendy, fashionable. You want to stand out.
It's still hot but I'm bored with it. I've seen enough over-the-top plastic, epoxy, big and bauble-y necklaces and bracelets. They are rarely made well so that they can sell inexpensively. You can just look at them and smell the cheap.
I'm not saying all eye-catching pieces should go away. But it is time to make a new, bold, individual statement. A little drama can be fabulous. Well-made standout pieces made with taste and craft are timeless and fun. I'm saying choose wisely, tastefully, with individuality.
As for the plastic and epoxy chunky colorful things, sorry, I've seen you too many times by now. You are passe. You have been far too blatantly obvious for too long already and are no longer new or interesting. You are like bell bottoms or neon dresses or big hair... it's fun for a while but you just can't take too much of it.
A better accessory statement to make is unique, interesting, worth a second look. Worth a long stare even. Your style accented perfectly yet not too overtly is always the best statement. And, remember to focus. Make your focal point a standout earrings OR necklace OR clutch OR bracelet. Not all at once.
Think of the art of flirting. A quiet meeting of the eyes can be much more intriguing than an overt "Hey baby, damn you look fine!".
Make your statement, leave your mark, stand out in a crowd, be 100% you, venture into experimental territory. Just do it in a way that's worth a second glance or an envious stare.
Make them wonder how you put together the most amazing and unexpected combination. Play with hard and soft, feminine and masculine, tight and flowy. Wear a feminine sheer black top and pair it with a chunky chain with a big horn. Your pieces should "go", but not necessarily match. An eclectic combination is always better than a perfectly plotted and matched outfit.
Just like your personality shouldn't be too conforming, neither should be your style. Make your statement elegantly, effortlessly, unexpectedly even fiercely.
Just remember, we cover our ears when we hear a scream and yet lean in to hear a whisper.
