Bone Up on your Jewelry Trends
Right now is a good time to show a little bone. And no, I am emphatically not implying that you go the super skinny route so that your pelvic bones pop out as you walk – that’s too thin, and it’s unattractive. I’m talking about bone jewelry. Whether you wear it alone or as a combination of something, it’s a fun element. You don’t have to wear actual bones, there is faux-bone jewelry which looks almost the same, and without a bit of the ‘ew’ factor.
The MICHAEL Michael Kors Resin Link Watch from bloomingdale’s is offered in in faux tortoise or bone ($120.00). I think the white bone watch would look good on a tan wrist in the summer. My sister is an art student at Cornell
University who needs to wear a watch as she wanders the campus, but she doesn’t want to wear a basic silver piece. This is the perfect alternative. Because there is a silver accent, you can wear a small silver necklace with this.
This Bone, Howlite & Fluorite Necklace necklace is by designer Stephen Dweck. It can be found at Neiman Marcus ($2,345.00). The combination of the elements within the necklace make it a bold, visual statement. Wear this with a solid color, not a print that will compete. You don’t want to be the woman who can’t say ‘no’ to ‘too much’ – not when it comes to jewelry, prints, or too much spiked punch at an office party.
Chunky bone jewelry should be worn on taller women as it will cut you off at the neck. But otherwise, any height can pull off this look.
If you want to go even more natural, try the Miriam Haskell Floral Beaded Necklace from Nordstrom (Price unlisted right now). I would wear this with softer fabrics and colors. Wearing a sparkly pink halter dress with this would be a no-no. Chanel your image of Kate Hudson and wear something boho chic.
Neiman Marcus also has the Bone & Carved Ebony Necklace by Stephen Dweck ($1,655.00). It has bone beads, which is a pretty cool concept, as long as no one tells me how they make the beads. Some things I just don’t need to know.
When going ‘bone’ – don’t wear a lot of other jewelry. It makes a statement on its own. What’s great is that a lot of bone jewelry is offered in bold choices, which is good for fashionable women over 40.
