Time was, jewelry came in perfectly matched ensembles, and there were many rules about what time of day — or year — it was right to wear different pieces. Times have changed. Today, things that used to be the stuff of grandmothers, like large, colorful brooches, have become fashion forward — with a new twist. Brooches of all sizes can be worn on belts, belt loops or on straps. Mix and matching is also quite in style. Do you have a strand of pearls? Wear them with other beads, or with a gold necklace for a different look. Wrap your pearl necklace around your wrist. Double your longer beads and try wearing them as a choker. A new combination can bring out a totally different look – and allow you to stretch your jewelry wardrobe at the same time.
