The heat is here! This sizzling, hot weather is the best excuse to splurge on some timeless and trendy pieces. Here are some stunners to amp up your look this summer.
Gravity-defying ear pieces
When it comes to the ears this season, it’s pretty much a “go big or go home” situation. Runway reports are screaming size and flash, especially when it comes to the ears. That means chunky hoops, ear cuffs, lengthy pieces going past the shoulders and quirky and abstract pieces of art that make the perfect sartorial style statement. Ideal for a sultry afternoon when you are prone to stick your hair up in a bun leaving your lovely lobes exposed…to endless possibilities!
Cuff that arm
Summer is a great time to score some arm candy. But just plain bracelets are so last season- arm cuffs and layered arm chains, armlets, armband and arm rings are in! Wearing gold, silver, stainless steel or even enamel arm-bands are all about making a dramatic statement, just like with the earrings. Not restricted to the arm area, they can also be worked around the wrists or the mid arm region. Pair it up with a sweet, breezy strapless top or dress or a tank and you are all set to conquer the fashion game.
Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, are all doing it. The old-world charm of well… the charm bracelet has been embraced by high-end designers and consumers alike. Across all age groups, charm bracelets and anklets are all the rage- from delicate little gold and silver trinket laden ones to chunky, unorthodox and melodramatic designs which make a statement (who’s seeing a pattern here!), it’s all about nostalgia with this trend. You can also get them custom made to have each charm represent a special memory, person, occasion or your sun sign. It makes for a sweet gift for your girlfriends or even just to add on to your collection. We love Rembrandt Charms, a family owned company that has been designing and manufacturing charms and charm bracelets for over 50 years and they have quite the collection! We especially adore their Canada-themed collection- do check it out!

Another cool trend just right for flaunting your love for those oh-so-bright colours, is beads!! You can never have enough of those. Brands like Troll Beads have some pretty exclusive collections with signature pieces that you will simply want to covet- their limited edition, hand painted porcelain beads, mixed with their Go Round! Collection and silver is styled on leather to give you that hip, cool vibe. Create a standalone bead wristlet or mix and match with silver jewellery that you might already have. Either way, you are summer-ready!
