Spring Accessories: I'll Fly Away

Mar 9, 2010

 

From Left to Right: (Rachel Roy Crystal Ring, $38; Bird Lariat Necklace, $68; Birdnest Earrings, $110)

Last Fall, The Frisky named “bird skull” jewelry one of their favorite trends of the season, but that trend failed to launch.  My guess is that most consumers prefer their feathered friends alive and were a little creeped out at the idea of wearing a prop from “The Birds” around their necks.  But while that morbid trend never found its wings (puns are fun), the birds of the air are a big trend in jewelry.

Recently, I purchased an adorable sparrow pendant necklace from Charmed & Dangerous, and I am obsessed with it.  I also plan to add the crystal bird ring by Rachel Roy (above) to my growing collection of bird inspired jewelry. 

This trend adds a touch of whimsy to any wardrobe without being too cute for a woman of my advancing years (can you tell my birthday is coming up?).  It’s also a lovely trend for Spring because nothing captures the sense of rebirth and renewal like a little birdie returning from its winter home.  So if you’re looking for a new piece of statement jewelry that makes its point with elegance and subtlety, try a piece of avian jewelry.  From hummingbirds to chickadees, there are certainly enough styles and variations to suit any taste.

Not sure that you want to wear Polly on your finger? Try a bird cage pendant, a bird’s nest ring, or a delicate pair of feather earrings

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.
