Ring in summer with hand candy

Jul 15, 2013

Yes, earrings, bracelets and necklaces certainly add flair and personal style to any ensemble, but there is something sophisticatedly understated about rings that make them our top accessory for summer. Here are a few of the best options to get your hands on:

Ring bling
If you enjoy a bit of sparkle no matter how formal or casual an outfit you're wearing, then opting to bring some bling to the table with a stunning ring might be your best bet. Not only does a fun cocktail ring help take your ensemble from average to amazing by simply slipping it onto your finger, but it can be all you need to stand out. Style icons Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez often rock this simple yet elegant look if you're looking for a celeb style to emulate.

A playful option like the Crystal Pavé-Set Silvertone Metal Square-Shaped Ring is just as sophisticated as it is modern and fun. You can pair this bauble with anything from a formal gown to a sleek leather pants and black tank-top combo to prove you've got it going on. 

Bohemian babe
Ladies interested in infusing the easygoing vibes of summer might want to look for a ring that boasts an oversized ring featuring a natural stone to represent the bohemian style. Fashion mavens to look to for inspiration include Kate Hudson, Vanessa Hudgens and Kate Bosworth. 

A piece like the Oval-Shape Simulated Turquoise Round Crystal Accent Brass Antique-Finish Vintage-Style Cabochon Ring is one to write home about thanks to its huge oval stone and the intricate detailing that surrounds the colorful center. 

Large rings like this tend to look best worn on the pointer or middle finger. On the same note, wearing a statement piece like this comes with a few guidelines. First, it's best to rock it alone, as too many bracelets, rings or other items can overpower the stunner. Secondly, you should wear a piece like this with lighter, more summery clothing items to keep with the overall style.
