Handy Tip - As you know layers are in, so you can mix your existing black diamond bangles and white diamond bangles to create a new trendy look. That too without spending any money!  You can even wear your white pearl and Tahitian black pearl strings together to create a black and white look. Evergreen and classic pearls will be in fashion this year, but mostly in uneven and irregular shapes.

Shades of gold: Rose gold will be in headline this year. So, you can mix up your existing white, yellow and rose gold pieces. White and yellow gold are the classic shades, while soft rose gold can add feminine yet glamorous touch to your look.

Simple yet eye grabbing: This year pieces have to be simple in setting and design, but overall look should be bold. So, key lies in either going overboard on their size or in layering them. Let me explain.

You can create the simple yet bold look by wearing an over-sized cuff or bracelet or bangles or by sporting a chunky necklace or a cocktail ring. Second option is you go with layering. Wear many thin bangles together or wear more than one long diamond necklace. Bring out your old gold link chains as large metal link chains will be a popular trend in jewelry as well as in accessories.
