By Brittany Anas
Roses are red, violets are blue. Buy her a vacuum for V-Day and she’ll say toodle-doo to you.
Okay, we’re not exactly award-winning poets over here. But, you know what we’re getting at. On Valentine’s Day, avoid giving her gifts that plug in or come with instruction manuals. Opt instead for accessories. They’re like candy for her closet.
Sure, diamonds are a girl’s best friend — but that’s a mighty expensive best friend.
Here are some of our favorite pieces — all for under $100. Go ahead, nudge Cupid and show him what you like. We’re also big fans of showing love on Valentine’s Day, so maybe surprise your gal pals or mom with a chic piece for their jewelry collection.
• Kate Spade New York ‘flats’ necklace: It almost looks like a candy necklace. When it comes to statement jewelry, the more colors, the better. That way it can be remixed with lots of blouses, picking up on various colors. We like this 14 K gold-plated Kate Spade multi-colored gilded bricks. Nordstrom. $98.
• “Love” Bangle: Fashion bloggers showing off their street style have been all about “arm parties” this year, stacking bangles and mixing bracelet patterns up their arms. This festive building block says “Love” in gold script across a red enamel bracelet. It’s a festive and playful Valentine’s piece reminiscent of those elementary days when you delivered Valentine’s to your classmates. Charlotte Russe. $6. Want more bangles? Mix in some colorful enamel bangles. $6 for a two-pack.
• Sterling silver cultured pearl long necklace: For a more classic gift, this three layered pearl necklace channels a sophisticated, classic look. Kohl’s. It’s originally $225, but has been marked down to $67.50 online.
• LuLu Frost for J.Crew navette burst earrings: J. Crew has been a surprising trendsetter in jewelry. These earrings have a vintage-chic edge and are inspired by estate jewelry. J.Crew. $98.
