Jewel Love It – The Spike Is Right

Jewel Love It Spikes

Pardon our French, but spike earrings are badass. They give you an awesome shot of edge, even with the most formal outfit (Luipta N’Yongo at the Oscars. Need we say more?) and nothing’s more fun than letting your inner rebel out from time to time. Right now, spike studs and ear cuffs are hot but don’t overlook hoops or longer styles. Pair with a floral sundress for contrast or rock them with your favorite cutoff jorts and black booties. Either way, no one will want to mess with you. Check out a few of our fave styles!

WWYW - Which Would You Wear?

Best Trend Forever – Patchwork Denim

Patchwork denim is making a comeback this summer and we’re saying “Right on!”. This throwback trend is a great nod to the 70s but doesn’t have to always take on a Flower Child vibe. We take the patchwork look a little further below and give it a Wild Child rocker spin as well. Which look would you wear?

The flowery look on the left features the Cotati Silk blouse from Anthropologie ($118), Carrie Patchwork flare jeans from True Religion ($323), the Loredo tote from Lucky Brand ($248) and sweet Jack Rogers Clare wedge sandals from Lord & Taylor ($74.23).

Our rocker look on the left revs things up a bit with a graphic tee from American Eagle ($19.95), BLANKNYC patchwork skinny jeans from Urban Outfitters ($88), Club Monaco’s Tia studded bag ($169.50) and Charles David Imperial booties from DSW ($89.95).
