Trend Alert: The Wild Kingdom of Spring Accessories
April 2, 2007
We spend a lot of time suppressing our animal instincts. We go to the salon to tame our manes, we try not to scratch someoneâ€™s eyes out over that nasty comment, and we work long hours to keep the wolves at bay. Maybe itâ€™s time to heed the call of the wild and go back to nature, or at least we look like it. Since it seems jewelry designers want us to run where the wild things are and play with animal shapes, prints and textures in our accessories collections this spring, here are a few fab finds to help you take a walk on the wild side.
Go for fun with Animal Print Bangles ($65), which hit the trend, but are still subtle. Accent your basic black and white pieces with this exotic Enamel Tiger Bracelet ($80) or show a little ferocity with a black and gold Double Claw Necklace ($68). Feeling a little dressier? Try this black and rhinestone Elephant Bracelet for $118. All of the these designs are made by famed jewelry designer Kenneth Jay Lane, guaranteed to stay fashionable despite changing trends.
