Summer 2011 Crochet and Lace

One of the hottest clothing trends for the summer 2011 season is clothing that is embellished with crochet applique's and trim, and clothing that is trimmed in pretty feminine lace.  We have been seeing it in dresses and beautiful flowing tops that are pretty as a picture.  Here are some lovely jewelry pieces that will work well with the crochet and lace trims.

Real and faux pearls in any color or style work fabulous with this summer's clothing trends. Try a pair of dangle pearl earrings in a pastel color along with a matching fringe style pearl necklace to dress up the lace. Faux pearls and real pearls that are dyed come in wonderful colors like lavender, pink, gray and black and will look lovely with your choice of fashionable top or dress.

When wearing gemstone jewelry with this hot fashion trend, try to stick to faceted pasted colored gems like citrine, peridot, amethyst and aquamarine in lighter shades of those gemstones. Big thick chunky bracelets loaded with faux gemstones are all the rage right now and will look amazing with your clothes. Very feminine and fun at the same time. These are great to stack in multiples too!

Ankle Bracelets:
Women are sporting long flowy skirts and dresses this summer and many are showing off lovely ankle bracelets! You can choose to layer several delicate ankle bracelets together for a powerful look. This is a flash back to the bohemian style, but very fun and flirty too.

Big, Bold Rings:
To go along with the feminine clothing trend this summer, women are sporting big, bold floral rings! These rings can be in real of faux gems and the bigger, the better. These are a great addition to the crochet and lace trend and matching your color scheme looks so great with this type of clothing.

As you can see, you can have fun with all of these great new styles coming out in jewelry.  Mixing and matching your favorite pieces with trendy clothing is not hard. Take a moment after wearing your jewelry to clean it before storing it in your jewelry case. It will make wearing it next time quick and easy and preserve it for a long time.
