Swanky Summer Accessorizing

The Art Deco style flourished across the decades spanning the end of WWI to the end of WWII. You can find this eclectic style with its bold geometric elements that echo scenes from the Machine Age of the early 20th century in architecture, art and consumer goods. Our favorite aspect, of course, is the inspiration Art Deco gives to today’s jewelry styles.

The Art Deco style often summons up images of exuberant parties straight out of a Fitzgerald novel, but that doesn’t mean you need to wear Deco baubles strictly at Roaring Twenties parties. Instead, let the style enjoy some time in the sun this summer.

Art Deco 1

This layered Deco style necklace is positively copacetic!

The layered look is in, so why not embrace it while letting your inner flapper girl shine? This necklace’s coppery finish combines perfectly with peach crystals, resin fans and a geometric design that’s astonishingly striking. We love that it’s so versatile, and can easily transform from edgy to boho with a simple change of costume.

Art Deco 3

This nifty mint necklace is the cat’s pajamas!

Mint is a classic summertime color, and what’s not to love? Such a fresh pastel shade is perfect for shaking off the winter blues. This statement necklace’s exquisite fanning design and minty color scheme makes it the optimal choice for enlivening summer couture with chic Art Deco appeal.

These ritzy dangle earrings glam up any outfit!

Whatever you do, don’t forget the earrings! The architectural Deco look of these gold-tone dangle earrings lends a touch of luxuriance to any ensemble. Need something a bit more formal for weddings or summer soirees? We have daring drop earrings to coordinate with nearly any extra fancy frock.

All in all, we’re stoked to celebrate the swanky style of modern Art Deco fashion all summer long. However, that’s not to say we aren’t also in love with the Deco jewelry of yesteryear. In fact, we’re thrilled to offer an exciting lineup of pieces that are either true Deco or heavily inspired by the movement in our vintage catalog. So whether you’re going full flapper for your next party or simply inspired to bring throwback glamour into your wardrobe, we’ve got the jewelry to make this season the Summer of Deco!

Easy High-Glam Halloween Costumes: Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly

Holly Golightly

For the second in our series of effortlessly glamourous Halloween costumes, we’re turning to everyone’s favorite rainy-day cinema classic: Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

To get your Audrey on, start with your favorite little (or long) black dress, and then add a riot of pearls and rhinestones (Holly Golightly said it’s tacky to wear diamonds before you’re forty, but she didn’t have anything against sparkles). Go here for the hairdo how-to. Now pick your jewelry, and all you need are black gloves and George Peppard (sigh).
