One of the hottest jewelry trends this season is bold, heavy, chunky metals. Amazing statement pieces, but for the fashionista who’s faint of heart, they might seem intimidating at first, and we all know we can’t rock a look if we don’t feel comfortable in it. Our advice? DON’T get trapped inside your comfort zone. Take a little fashion risk now and then and you might surprise yourself. If there’s something you really want to try, all it takes is some guts and a few baby steps. We’ve come up with some knockout pieces to help smooth your jewelry transition from lightweight to heavyweight.

Metal fringe is a showstopper but you can find lots of starter options so you don’t feel like you’re headlining ahead of your time. These Tassel earrings from H&M ($7.95) will hold you over until you’re ready for this Fringe hoop from Guess ($25).

Chain link is huge right now. It says, I know what I’m doing, and trust me, you CAN pull it off. This Bee Charming two tone chain link necklace from Max & Chloe ($75) isn’t out of your league, but if you’d rather ease into it, go for the Marc Jacobs Enamel Toggle necklace from Bloomingdales ($168).

Two more sweet additions to the chain gang! The Christina link bracelet from Stella & Dot ($49) creates that powerful look but without the awesome bicep workout you’ll get wearing the Tia Bracelet from All Saints ($175).
