Beat the Gray Cold of Winter with Fiery Fashion Jewelry

Raleigh based Independent lia sophia Advisor Bekah Craven shows trend-setting Triangle "fashionistas" how to liven up their look for upcoming holiday celebrations.

Raleigh, NC, December 11, 2008 --( As temperatures drop, jewelry trends heat up. This transition comes just in time for the holidays, says Triangle-area lia sophia advisor Rebekah Craven.

Bekah explained to the women of Coffee and Contacts, a popular women’s networking group that "Jewelry is essential to every woman's wardrobe, especially this time of year when calendars are booked with festive celebrations."

"We suggest women to experiment with their holiday wardrobe. Mix a new jewelry trend with a classic outfit and some of the jewelry you already own to update your look." offered Craven.

She went on to say "The great thing about jewelry is that there is no limit to what you can do with it. Get into the holiday spirit by choosing great styles to match what’s already in your closet."

Some tips for this holiday season

Complement and Contrast:
Wear contrasting colors that complement each other instead of insisting that clothing and jewelry match exactly. Pair your black dress with a necklace in the latest trend colors of blue, gold and copper for a sophisticated pop of color. Lively warmer color tones like warm orange and rich yellow combat the dull look of winter. Blue is another winter must-have with gemstones and turquoise, while black never goes out of fashion.

Bold and Bejeweled:
Be bold and more unique. Think statement pieces and one-of show-stoppers. Chunky beaded or linked necklaces, dramatic rings with large center stones, cocktail rings, wide stretch bracelets, bold cuff bracelets and bangle bracelets are the must haves for this season. Pendants of various shapes and designs are also in. Think jewels and stones in bright, deep colors - the more exotic the better. They’ll make you the center of attention at any holiday gathering.

Take a Chance:
Jewelry is a great way to try out new trends you might not wear in clothing because it is too much of a change. Maybe you have a passion for purple, but an outfit that color has not made it into your wardrobe. Toss on a few amethyst-tones accessories and you’re there.
