I LOVE jewelry and am always looking for a great new find. This summer, I’m lusting after pieces that aren’t fussy or overly fancy, and with many options under $75, it’s easy to accessorize. Summer is the time to be carefree, so simple summer style is about wearing fabulous pieces that you can pair with everything in your wardrobe.

I’m a big fan of long necklaces. This antique brass one is easy to wear for summer. I love that the oversized swarovski crystal flower pendant has a glass pearl center. It looks great with a solid maxi dress and sandals.
Citrine by the Stones Provocateur Earrings, $160
This brand has a ton of fun jewelery and these earrings are total outfit makers. Wear them during the day with jean shorts and a white tank and your hair pulled up in a messy ponytail or at night with a dress and sleek pulled back hair.

Alexis Bitar’s baubles are true works of art and this ring is no exception. An oversized cocktail ring is the perfect conversation starter at a chic summer nighttime event.

Nothing says summer like nature-inspired jewelry. Urban Outfitters has lots of boho chic accessories like this leaf bracelet which comes in both silver and gold. I always stack my bracelets so this would make a great addition for a layered look.

Vanessa Mooney is a fave of celebrities like Katie Holmes and Vanessa Hudgens. All summer jewelry should be as easy to wear with a tank and jeans as this wrap bracelet. It comes in tons of great colors, too!
