Accessorize Your Swimwear

Swimsuit season is around the corner. Instead of the typical sun hat, sunglasses and beach bag, why not accessorize with some jewelry too?  Swimsuit editorials always show accessorized models with a variety of looks, from chunky stacked bangles, to matching gold cuffs and statement necklaces.  A swimsuit is a great summer look and can be worn so many ways and made to look super fashionable. 

Pick complementary colours and metals and  pile on as much or as little as you like depending on how glamorous you want to look.  Wear a few pieces for a naturally beautiful  look or more for a more high fashion approach!


Pale yellows, mint greens and baby pinks paired with bright whites create a fresh, feminine spring look.  Gently faded hues have girls feeling softer and sassier. Accessorize your pastel wardrobe with pearls, and light coloured jewelry, rose golds and retro bags!

Pink & Orange

 Pink and orange are hot colours for spring summer 2012 and the look even better together.  Deep rich oranges with hot fuchsia pinks work best. The brighter the better.  Try using the combo in your accessories with a great pair of pink and orange earrings! Or add a cute pink or orange handbag!
