Look in your closet right now and you'll likely find some version of the essential wardrobe building blocks that everyone has: a boyfriend jean, a Chelsea boot, an LBD. These are the wear-every-day pieces we happily invest in (in multiples!) knowing that we'll love them season after season. Now, it's time to apply the same discerning treatment to your jewelry collection.
These are the finishing touches that you'll wear until they've become your signature. And if something is going to become recognizably you, it's worth making sure it's really, well, you. Are you more classic, or do you prefer something that's ahead of the game? Whichever vibe you're after, you can be sure it's represented in each staple jewelry item you own — the delicate chain that feels like second skin, the stud earrings you never take off, the watch that's more for style than time-checking, and so on.
Ahead, we break down the major silhouettes to know and love, and offer up options likely to suit your core fashion personality. Consider your jewelry box properly attired.
