We all know how wardrobe staples like a white T-shirt or black ankle boots are the closet mainstays upon which we build the rest of our outfits. But what about accessories? When it comes to jewelry, you should think about your staple pieces in the same way. Are you reaching for a stack of rings or a signature necklace each day? If jewelry isn't a huge part of your getting-ready routine, it could be sabotaging your outfits in the long run since accessorizing is the key to making your outfits look like you put much more thought (and money) into them than you really did.
Now, let's talk jewelry staples. The good news is you don't have to spend a fortune on stylish pieces like gold charm necklaces, signet rings, and dainty earrings.
