1. Bold Combinations of Jewelry and Watches

Style mavens are piling on stacks of bangles, leather bracelets, and beads, pairing them on the same arm as a bold, oversized watch like TW Steel's Canteen Fashion. Watches may be men's watches, borrowed from the boyfriend, or an oversized model with feminine details such as mother of pearl, rose gold, and Swarovski crystals. Creative combinations are the key to this trend, to express your individuality. Photo credit: TW Steel

2. Non-traditional Rings

Rings are being worn in stacks as well, but they are also being worn on different digits of the finger- the middle joint. Other variations include bohemian styles with chains connecting the ring to a bracelet. This look is perfect for summer music festivals or a night at one of the Lower East Side's trendy dives.

3. The Bib Necklace

While statement necklaces have been en vogue for the last few seasons, the latest iteration is the most statement making of all: the bib necklace. A bib necklace drapes all the way from the collarbone over the chest, dripping with dangles in a variety of colorful, often globally influenced accents. The bib is perfect for breezy or low cut summer outfits, making a simple outfit extremely striking and memorable. Photo Credit: Urban Outfitters
