Trending: Minimal to No Jewelry

No Jewelry

Have you noticed lately? Jewelry has become practically¬†optional ‚Äď and when you do see it on the street, it‚Äôs most likely minimalist. I suppose jewelry¬†‚Äď like everything else in fashion ‚Äď has its cycles.

I’m not a strict follower of fashion trends. I prefer instead to concentrate on great fit, flattering cuts, and a mostly classic personal style.
