I'm sorry, Coco, but the style today seems to follow a "more is more" belief. However, it doesn't have to mean more is more money.
These are my Top Three favorite jewelry trends right now, and how to do it on the cheap (which I do!)
3) Stacking rings. I love the mix of gold and rose gold super fine bands that you can stack and wear on multiple fingers, on both hands. I see them in nicer stores for $50+ a piece, but I found a stack of 3 on Etsy (gold filled) for $38! Shipping takes a few weeks, but it's worth it. For some other options, try here, here, and here. My roommate even found a super inexpensive neon ring!
2) Bold watches. I love watches. I have nice watches, and inexpensive ones. I have gold, and stainless. Leather, and ceramic. They can be trendy or timeless, depending on the $ you drop on them. I love the mint rubber watch from Anthropologie, and what a deal at $58! Other great options here, and here. If you pick up the Target Timex, stop on over to JCrew for a bold new strap in stripe or solid. And if you are willing to drop $100, try Fossil for some great deals!
