The Kind of Jewelry Every Girl Needs to Own

Tried-and-true turquoise. There’s a reason turquoise jewelry keeps coming back, year after year, decade after decade. It never goes out of style because it looks gorgeous with basically everything – dressed up or down, wearing an off-the-wall pattern or a super-chic, all-black look, you’re guaranteed to look fabulous when you embellish your favorite ensembles with a bit of turquoise.

That’s why I was so excited to find this week’s gem in my local Goodwill thrift recently. This bold turquoise statement necklace is definitely for the girl who likes to make an entrance – but shouldn’t we all let ourselves be that girl from time to time? If you’re ready to purchase a daring accessory that you can still pair with classic pieces in your wardrobe, this eye-catching necklace is just right for you. The unusually shaped pieces and larger strand make this a truly eye-catching and extraordinary item, but the classic turquoise color makes it just as easy to wear with almost anything much-loved pieces you already own.


Take classic and chic to a whole new level with this bold, brave accessory that manages to blend aspects of both timeless and modern jewelry for a truly one-of-a-kind find.

Don’t shy away from other bold pieces. Though you can certainly use a cool, funky piece like this one to dress up something super simple like a basic white tee – and it would look fantastic with one – don’t feel like you have to stick to only solid-colored clothes when looking for items to pair this accessory with. A necklace like this one – a fresh, playful take on an old classic, turquoise – can also be used alongside other equally funky, bright, and attention-grabbing outfits, like the striking black-and-white ensemble I’ve put together here. The vivid turquoise color of the necklace is sure to stand out against a form-fitting black sweater, but on the bottom, a fun skirt in a big, black-and-white houndstooth print brings another element with plenty of sassy confidence and visual interest.


Don’t shy away from more funky, bright or bold wardrobe pieces! While a fresh piece of turquoise jewelry like this week’s find is a great way to jazz up simple items of clothing, it’s also a great way to add a fun element to creative outfits featuring a mix of fearless prints, colors and patterns.
