6 Ways to Color Yourself Blue This Summer!
Summer is finally here and we’re excited to reveal our favorite color of the season with a brand new jewelry collection! When Pantone released its top 10 colors of the year, we were drawn to the cool, pastel, and deep tones of blue including Limpet Shell, Serenity, and Snorkel Blue. With these shades in mind, we created our Shades of Blue Collection which lets you mix and match your favorite jewelry and accessories to keep you looking stylish and feeling cool during the warm-weather months ahead.

Summer in the city can be swelteringly hot! The key to staying calm, cool, and collected when you get those city blues are thin layers and lightweight jewelry. Start by wearing a loose, breezy dress and layer with a denim jacket. Strappy wedge sandals are the perfect way to add some flair to your look while giving your feet a chance to breathe. Finally, finish it off with some turquoise accessories which scream summertime. Our secret to wearing statement jewelry in the hot weather is to keep the heavier pieces on your hands and wrists. A striking but loose-fitting cuff bracelet and a bold ring add a nice touch to any outfit, while a lightweight station necklace and oversized stud earrings will keep you looking glamorous without weighing you down over the course of the day.
Brunch in the Hamptons is the perfect excuse to get dressed up and showcase your favorite statement jewelry! Wear a bold printed or brightly colored dress and pair it with a pair of strappy high heeled sandals. Then, channel your inner Aubrey Hepburn and grab a pair of cat eye sunglasses. Finally, go nuts with your accessories! To accentuate the colors in your outfit, choose a large, but lightweight statement necklace. We love something with a floral pattern for an elegant and youthful feel. Stacking bangles are ideal for brunch because they’re super chic and lightweight. Finish off your look with a bold ring and beautiful stud earrings for an additional layer of glamour. Grab your favorite clutch, and you’re ready for brunch!
I'm on a Boat!
Boat rides are a great way to stay cool during those sizzling summer months. They’re also the prime time to show off your best summer style! A chiffon romper is an ideal way to stay both cool and chic. Pair it with a trendy gladiator sandal for a simple, stylish way to amplify your look. Make sure you sport some mirrored aviator sunglasses for eye protection and a floppy hat to keep your hair intact at sea. Finally, compliment the look with nautical themed jewelry. Our suggestion when it comes to wearing jewelry at sea is to keep it light and casual. Again, you’re going to want to move heavier pieces to your wrists. A striped cuff bracelet will keep you in that nautical color theme while adding style to your outfit. Keep your accessories light by wearing an oversized pendant necklace and hoop earrings for a relaxed, but polished look.
Night at the Beach
There’s no better feeling than spending a night relaxing on the beach or strolling along the boardwalk. Whether you’re on a date, at a party, or simply enjoying the scenery with a friend or two, the key to the best beach outfit is comfort. Rompers are ideal because they’re as pretty as a sundress, but they always stay in place and allow you to move around. T-strap sandals are the best choice for shoes when strolling through the sand, and always make sure you have a tote big enough to fit all of your beach essentials. Finally, finish your look off with some beach-inspired accessories. A necklace with multi-strands and shells is a perfect eye catcher. If you decide on a bold necklace, it’s better to keep the rest of your jewelry light and simple with embellished starfish stud earrings and stackable beach-themed bracelets.
One of the hottest trends on the runway this wedding season is the midi-dress. Choose a flowing version in a solid pastel or dainty design, a classic clutch purse, and open-toed sandals in a neutral color. A simple sandal and purse will let you keep the focus on the most important aspect of styling a wedding outfit: the jewelry. Your overall look should be elegant and modern, yet also timeless. Dangle earrings are a classic staple piece and a must have for this look. Match them with a contemporary necklace such as a floral bib in order to give your look that modern flair. Finally, pick out a simple, yet elegant cuff bracelet.
Summer is never complete without attending a backyard BBQ. This sort of event is the perfect time to showcase how you accessorize your casual attire. Cutoff denim shorts paired with a sleeveless top are essential in staying both cool and casual in the hot summer months. Accessories are key to livening up your outfit, and our secret is not to go overboard with sparkly styles or statement jewelry, but to keep it light and fun! Since you’ll spend the majority of your day outdoors, it is essential to move the heavier pieces to your wrists and hands by wearing stackable bracelets and a bold ring. Add a simple tassel necklace, and finish it off with bold statement earrings that will catch everyone’s attention. You’ll be the envy of the party!
