Bib necklaces have dominated the runways this season and are pieces of jewelry everyone should have.

 

The ultra oversized necklaces are perfect to help make any bland outfit pop. And the best part is, you don’t have to pay the runway price for a necklace like this!

Check out various bib necklaces from Charlotte Russe and Forever 21.

And the winner is…

Thank you to everyone who entered Bmore in Style’s Accessory Giveaway! Everyone had such great responses about describing their style and what their inspired by.

Unfortunately, I could only pick one winner and I literally put the entries in a hat and pulled out a name. Congrats to Kelly Schraf! She will be receiving the accessory of her choice from Forever 21.

 

Keep in style accessories contest

November 10, 2009

The one thing I try to stress the most is personal style is a skill.  It can’t be bought and it should be easily expressed through what you wear.

I believe that accessories are what make a look so great. Again, it shouldn’t have to cost too much either! Mixing and matching designer pieces with less expensive things can really make an outfit work.

That being said, I am doing the first ever Bmore in Style ‘Keep in style’ contest! One lucky reader of mine will win one of the accessories (their choice) below.

Supersize me

September 30, 2009

I couldn’t help but notice the oversized accessories I’ve spotted in Baltimore.  Larger than normal necklaces, big cocktail rings and even the extra large bangles.

For those who want to stand out with big accessories, take it up a notch with a Max & Chloe’s Blu Bijoux cabochon rings. Available in an assortment of colors, these rings will surely make your outfit pop.

Add a bold necklace to a plain tee so you can look fierce walking in downtown Baltimore.  Try something like layered chain links.

Have a tight budget? You can still stock up on the accessories you love for less at stores like Forever 21, H&M and local boutiques.  Transform your summer floral accessories into a fall look with something like Forever 21’s purple necklace (perfect for Baltimore Ravens fans!)

If you’ve got a great accessory or accessory store Baltimoreans should know about, share them here!
