Accessorizing in Style
Phillip Bloch's witty humor and unique insight have made him one of the most-quoted and most sought-after stylists in the world. With all of his accomplishments, and the creation of his new show on ABC News "Cause Celeb with Phillip Bloch", Phillip is a fashion force like no other in Hollywood. He has a refreshing take on how to accessorize an outfit. "I've always found jewelry to be the GPS of your outfit. It gives you a whole new direction," explains Bloch. "The real secret to looking good is knowing how to accessorize." He added, "For me, the best part of jewelry shopping is the hunt! It's so much fun to find something special that really 'pops' and completes an outfit."
Discover just how easy it is to look put-together simply by adding the right jewelry. Here, from Ross-Simons are fabulous jewelry options with expert fashion advice from Phillip Bloch.
Delicate Necklaces: Personalize your look with a beautiful blue chalcedony and cultured pearl necklace that is reminiscent of an antique vintage find. Phillip points out that the piece has "a light, elegant and ethereal look." Phillip's personal style tips: wear this necklace during the day with a chiffon floral dress or a great little tee. At night, pair with a vintage style silver/gray satin evening dress.
Mixed Metals: Nothing looks more modern than mixing gold and platinum. And don't worry about combining the two metals together. "Violate all those shopping rules and dare to be different," advises Bloch. Phillip's personal style tips: loop two diamond hoop earrings together — one in gold and the other in sterling silver. "It's a very Beyonce type look," explains Bloch. "And who doesn't want to dazzle like Beyonce?" Try cubic zirconia for the magical sparkle of diamonds at prices that fit every budget.
Big and Bold: Oversized quartz and diamond earrings are perfect for both day and night. Phillip's personal style tips: during the day, the earrings look casually elegant when worn with a classic white tee shirt. For night time glamour, pair the earrings with a dark piece of clothing like a little black dress or a gray cashmere sweater. "It's amazing how the contrast between light and dark colored pieces changes the entire look," enthuses Bloch. Yet another bold fashion choice is to make the wrist a focal point by adding a gorgeous free-form moonstone and diamond slice bracelet. Bigger is better.
The Versatile Tassel Necklace: The black and white palette is always in style. Consider a cultured freshwater pearl lariat necklace with striking black onyx tassels. Phillip's personal style tips: There are so many ways to wear this piece. A multifunctional piece that is easily chic and trendy. Wear it long and easy in the front. Wear it as a choker with the tassel in the back. (A great summer look that shows off a low-back top.) Wear the tassel necklace as a belt with the tassel on the side. Or wrap the tassel necklace as a bracelet. Phillip also suggests adding a multi-strand pearl torsade necklace when you wear the tassel necklace as a bracelet or belt.
High Impact, High Glamour Jewels: It's all about big statement pieces like a huge amethyst cocktail ring or stacked sterling silver bracelets. Remember, cocktail rings are not just for cocktail parties. Make an impact by wearing dramatic jewelry during the day, even at the office. Phillip's personal style tips: you can never have enough bracelets or a big enough ring. A popular trend this season: animal motifs such as a white topaz and black sapphire panther ring.
Mix and Match: Find your own unique style by experimenting with different trends. For example, it's not mandatory to always wear your engagement or wedding ring on one's finger. Try wearing a ring on a beaded necklace for a fun, flirty look. Or opt for jewelry reminiscent of the iconic Liz Taylor by pairing a pearl and sapphire bracelet with a multi-strand pearl necklace. A gold lion knocker bracelet has a vintage feel but is actually quite modern. Phillip's personal style tips: Go for baroque by pairing a chunky baroque pearl necklace with a free-form baroque cocktail ring. It's a bold look that works any time of day. As Phillip concludes, "It's five o'clock somewhere!"
