Show your flower power this summer
Jul 24, 2013
Summer is a great season for trying a slew of fresh, bold and bright trends. Whether you're into color blocking, emerald green frocks or nautical pieces, one style that must be on your radar is flowers. That's right, these beautiful natural blooms are no longer reserved for vases and gardens, as more designers than ever have been creating fabulous necklaces, rings and pendants with bright floral accents. Even though you might not have the funds to pick up stylish pieces by the likes of fashion houses including Miu Miu, you can afford similar options that are sure to stand out this season.
With scoop, boat and v-neckline designs all the rage this summer, it can be a great idea to add some major bling to one of these styles by way of a bold flower necklace. A unique piece like the Silvertone Metal Antique-Finish Flower And Leaf Bib Necklace And Earrings Set is a great addition to a LBD or even a white blouse and cropped-jeans combo.
The modern silver flowers stand out on their own, while the collar-like shape will help garner plenty of adoring gazes. Plus, this trend is already a hit in Hollywood. Stars like Anne Hathaway, Emma Stone and Karolina Kurkova have all donned beautiful flower-inspired necklaces.
Another popular floral trend taking over the jewelry world is flower earrings. Adding either drop or stud flowers to your ears is not only chic, it's also adorable and ultra feminine. Testing the waters with this trend is a bit easier than opting to go for the bolder necklace route, and a slew of celebs like Keira Knightley, Olivia Munn, Rose Byrne and Katy Perry have all already approved of this style.
You can enhance your everyday outfit or class up a more formal gown with a pair of earrings like the funky Lab-Created Opal Openwork Flower Pierced Earrings In Sterling Silver. These unique studs are big enough to draw attention, but are made softer thanks to the flower design.
Those looking to add some bling to their hands during a more formal event can still embrace the floral trend. In fact, there are many cocktail rings made to resemble flowers that boast diamond, crystal or colored gems for the perfect amount of sparkle.
A gorgeous option such as the Platinum Over Sterling Silver Marquise-Cut And Round DiamonUltra™ Cubic Zirconia Flower Ring is just as delicate as it is beautiful thanks to the multiple small flowers that make up the bauble.
