Recently, I came across an article in an old issue of British Harpers Bazaar on the subject of wardrobe building blocks. The premise of the piece was that for a woman to create her own individual style, having good classic pieces is key. No matter what her lifestyle is, a stylish woman should always ensure her closet is properly stocked with those basics upon which she can layer key fashion pieces. Adding a great bag or shoe can instantly transform the outfit. It is in fact these building blocks that will allow you to show your true individuality.
Naturally, this got me thinking about jewelry. If you want to create your own jewelry look, and to avoid any jewelry dilemmas, you can also invest in building block-type pieces. These are the always elegant, always chic items you know and love—a chain, for example, is the jewelry equivalent of your crisp white button-up shirt, versatile enough to mix with current trends. Other building blocks include gold or silver bangles and a classic charm bracelet.
So, bring your own character and your own style into your jewelery world now. Have some of those forever pieces that make getting ready in the morning that much easier. -Monica
