Make A Statement

‘Tis the season for statement jewelry.

It’s the easiest way to punch up a little black dress or a pair of dark-washed jeans and a fitted sweater. In an instant, an outfit goes from simple to glamorous. Yes, statement jewelry has that much power. And the look continues into spring.

Statement jewelry usually is big and bold with a definite wow factor. That’s why the Ion Style Team embraces this look at every opportunity. Think wide cuffs, chunky necklaces, chandelier earrings and a great cocktail ring. They can be covered in crystals or colored gems, gleaming gold or shiny silver.

Show off each piece with the right style of clothing. Bib necklaces play up a scoop neckline. Chandelier earrings look good with V-necks. An armload of bangles or a dramatic cuff complements a dress with short or 3/4 sleeves.

Even though you may be tempted, don’t wear all your statement pieces at once. But you already knew that, right?
