Tired of the dark dreary colors of winter and ready for a splash of freshness? Keeping your clothing timeless and adding modern jewelry makes you feel like you have a new wardrobe. Remember the essential white shirt/top? Get the red out and turn it into a celebration!

Add bulk to your upper body with rounded shapes or clusters of beads such as these from JC Penney, Esty and Macy’s.

Minimize your upper body by adding a vertical element like these from Kohl’s and Macy’s.

Long necks look great with choker style necklaces like this one from Etsy; short necks look better with styles that create a “V,” thereby elongating your neckline, like these from Etsy and Nordstrom.

I found this one on Overstock.com that combines beads and a vertical element. This will definitely get attention!

May you always look great!
