Jewelry Tip: How To Care For Fashion Jewelry

Although our fashionable jewelry pieces may not necessarily be diamond studded or 24K gold, they still need proper care to last and continue to look beautiful. Here are a few tips to keep your favorite accessories in good shape.

* Store your jewelry in plastic bags or in a covered box
* Take off your accessories before you apply perfume or lotion
* Don't wear your fashion jewelry while cleaning.
* If you need to clean your pieces, don't use soap or jewelry cleaner, try Windex. Then rinse with water and dry carefully.
(NOTE: Never use silver cleaner - it can strip a silver finish in seconds!)
* Remove your special pieces when showering, working out or sleeping

Any special care tips you'd like to share? Feel free to leave comments below.

Fashion Trend: Fun With Colorblocking

Colorblocking is when you match up 2-3 colors together. It's a fun look, and lots of fashions are following this trend, so it's no surprise that the right jewelry can provide the perfect accent.

Here are a few tips from Toni Ferrara, a celebrity style expert who is also a guest editor for Kitsy Lane's blog.

Some ideas on how to wear it
Choose colors that are close together on the color wheel. For instance cobalt blue pants with a turquoise top. Also you can pair different shades of the same colors, like hot pink with red.

How to use jewelry to create a colorblocked style
Let your jewelry accent your colorblocked outfit. Decide on a color scheme then have your jewelry match one of the colors of one your pieces of clothing.

How to wear jewelry to accentuate the colorblocked look
Bold, big jewelry along with gold or silver goes great with a colorblocked outfit.

But most of all, see what works for you and define your own style. Have fun!
