Today is a big day ladies! Today I tell you how you get a taste of FREE Stella & Dot jewelry. However, there are instructions. The first one is to read on.
Ladies, being a Stella & Dot jewelry stylist and a general accessories hog (jewelry, handbags, shoes, belts, etc.), I… love… this… advice!
This is right in line with our last DC Style Watch post about the Little Black (Red or White) Dress where your stated mission was to “inventory your closet and see how you can mix up your LBD before your next event. I bet you can make it look like an entirely new dress simply with your accessories.” The folks at InStyle are speaking my language.
And they continue on with their 50 best fashion tips of all time. No. 2 is, “Accessorize in Brights.”
No. 16 is, “Layer your necklaces. Coco Chanel’s more-is-more approach still makes a statement today.”
Number 35 is, “Look for twists on classic pieces. The right tweak can turn a staple into a statement.”
No. 37 is, “Add an element of surprise. Whether it’s grosgrain with sequins . . . or an oversize choker with an easy white ‘T’, a touch of contrast makes good outfits great.”
No. 38 is, “Recast your jewelry. Loop a chain through the clasp of a brooch . . . suddenly, it’s a necklace! Wrap your chains or lariat around your wrist for a tough luxe bracelet. Snap clip-on earrings onto flats for an instant evening shoe.”
No. 42 is, “Jazz up your LBD” (Have these people been reading DC Style Watch or what??) “Simpler shapes cry out for styling… Add a bold necklace.”
No. 43 is, “Get studs. Fake or real, big or small, they will go with any color, fabric, or style of cocktail dress and will never compete with other jewelry…”
Are you sensing a trend here? And I didn’t even pay them for all of this sage advice!
Now, one way to both stretch your limited budget and use accessories this season is to get the accessories for FREE. That’s where I come in.
The runways and red carpets have been full of the trend of layering bracelets.
It’s a trend that I enjoy and that Stella & Dot has down pat with our pieces.
It was showcased in the April InStyle magazine feature and on stylist Heather W. in the photos above.

P.S. — in the last DC Style Watch post a commenter wanted to know what I decided to wear to my recent “gala” event. I recycled an outfit from a San Francisco trip earlier this year and went with the “Little Purple Dress,” La Coco Cupchain braided necklaces & Soiree Studs in hematite!
