A Worthy Investment: Edgy Jewelry

I am a huge accessories fiend, an obsession that has piqued recently on account of a resolution to stop making unnecessary purchases and work with what I already have. Accessories are a fantastic way to spice up even the most basic pieces and can help you create the exact vibe you’re going for- edgy, boho, preppy, no matter what look you crave, there’s an accessory to help you get there.

The edgy/femme contrast was a huge trend for spring as seen on the runways of Louis Vuitton, Thakoon, Matthew Williamson, Julie Haus, and more. I love mixing edgy pieces into my daily looks, even the most seemingly quiet and subdued, to achieve this look- it really is amazing to consider the significant impact something as simple as a leather cuff or a rock-inspired cocktail ring can yield on an outfit. With a major glamour goth trend on the horizon for Fall 2009, I think it’s definitely time to start investing in some edgy pieces.

Check out 10 must-have edgy pieces after the jump!

Yes it is a worthy investment. And you should also support independent artists as well. Sorry I always need to plug myself and my people.
