A fun way to accessorize any outfit as quickly as possible is through statement jewelry; One or two pieces that speak for themselves, as well as the entire outfit. Rings aren’t typically the first accessory we picture when thinking of statement jewelry. However, they can play up any other accessory. A simple gold charm necklace stands
out even more with a chunky bauble ring.

Above are my recent purchases. I stumbled upon this fun crystal piece, which really adds a fun twist to whatever I’m wearing, at Forever 21
for only 6$! Same with the set of dainty gold knuckle rings. Only $5 at Forever 21, these little guys draw attention instantly! And as a bonus, they make your mani look fabulous!

Typically, I stay away from animal prints when putting together outfits because it can easily go from trendy to tacky. However, there are ways to make cheetah and leopard prints work without going overboard. The secret? Choosing the correct article of clothing!

Think about it, something tight and skin baring will only send the wrong message. Avoid bright colored printed leggings and jeans. Instead look for pieces that are playful, loose and somewhat modest. Also, sheer fabrics work well with cheetah and leopard because they mute the intensity of the print (just be sure to wear something underneath of course). Pair animal prints with neutral or pastel shades for an instant look that’s chic and classy. Above, I paired the sheer blouse with gold accessories, black boots, and nude shorts for a trendier look while I paired the faux chiffon skirt with a cream sweater and wedge sneakers that were all in the same color palette to achieve a monochromatic look.

If you don’t have any pieces like this in your closet, start off gradually by incorporating animal print accessories into your outfits. Printed flats can transform any plain outfit into something new, same with an animal print bag or scarf! Just follow your animal instinct!
