Great Ways to Accessorize Your Looks
Earrings are a great way to express yourself. The type you choose say a lot about you. Weigh the effect of a tiny pearl stud against a dangling chandelier. One says conservative while the other lends a feeling of sophistication and subtlety. Then consider large gold hoop earrings for a night out on the town. Whichever you choose, your earrings help bring out the features of your outfit you want people to notice most.
Consider too the importance of trends. Look for ornate earrings in medium and large sizes. There will be plenty of detailing and etching on them, with topaz, quartz, crystal and gold.

Gold, detailed etchings and ornate stones are consistent with current trends. These earrings can be worn to dress up fitted slacks or skinny jeans with a long cardigan. Or wear them into the evening, perhaps with a cowl neck sweater dress.
Rings can add a feminine touch to just about any hand. When selecting rings as an accessory, consider the size of your hand -large, dominant rings may look overpowering on a demure hand. While this is a general rule of thumb, this year, ring trends are all about big and ornate, similar to earrings. Crystal rings are the most popular and, best of all, they're affordable! So, have fun trying a few different ones. For a piece of jewelry that's a blast from the past, try out the retro crystal ring.
