J.Crew's Razzle Dazzle

   By now, you all probably know I'm obsessed with anything and everything J.Crew. While searching through the brand's December Style Guide on Pinterest this morning, I found so many great pieces and accessories for the holiday season. J.Crew incorporated a lot of deep reds and warm colors for a comfortable, cozy feel while still being ultra stylish. I love the put-togetherness of a J.Crew style, especially when it comes to accessorizing — and speaking of, the December Style Guide is filled with dazzling baubles fit for Christmas parties, workdays and anything else you desire to look chic for.
   I'm a huge fan of showy bracelets and cuffs, especially during this time of year. As the decorations and lights go up, I think it's fun to step up your accessories game and match the over-the-topness of the holiday season. A little shine can go a long way in any outfit. Cuffing your sleeves and adding something sparkly can give your look a whole new feel! I love to put on a simple top and cardigan and accessorize.
   It's important to balance your accessories, too. If you wear  a big, flashy cuff or bracelet on one side, you've got to put something on your other wrist. Adding thinner bangles if one idea, and you could mix and match a few colors. Bangles can be a lot of fun, too! If you're like me and you have tiny wrists, they can get annoying, but I've solved that problem but putting them over my sleeves. This works especially well if you're wearing a thick sweater because the bangles all stay in place. If you're yearning for a simpler look and you aren't into the razzle dazzle of J.Crew's shiny pieces, this is definitely a route you should take as far as accessorizing goes.
   Accessories like so also make fabulous gifts. As the holiday shopping season commences, it's good to keep pieces like this in mind for the fashion-loving ladies in your life. Costume jewelry has become a centerpiece of modern day style, and J.Crew is definitely one of the leading retailers for this. The brand has gained a lot of recognition from press and high-ups in the fashion industry for the stylish pieces they've been manufacturing. I'm not the only fanatic, so that's a good sign!
   If you're interested in sporting these baubles, pick up a J.Crew style guide, search the brand's Pinterest page and peruse the website. See what's best for you and decide what matches your wardrobe the most. Some of the jewelry is a bit pricey, so you want to know for sure that it's for you before you buy it. J.Crew stores are also fully-stocked in jewelry, so going to a store to try things on is a great way to ensure it's 100% for you. Accessorizing is meant to make your outfit more exciting, so keep that as your number one goal.
Don't forget to have fun with it!
