FEDORAS HAVE SKYROCKETED into popularity this year, but never have they been so popular as right now, with the passing of Michael Jackson, who might be called the King of Fedoras.  This was a man who knew how to wear hats, with elegance, self-possession, and just the right touch of edgy-ness.

 

Fedoras look terrific on women as well as men.  They can be jaunty, as Michael so well proved, and they can give an air of sophistication and street-smarts to any outfit.  Think of them in plain colors as well as plaids, with and without band decoration. This is the hat of the season! Your customers will love them!

 

JOIN THE COUNTRY AND THE WORLD IN REMEMBERING MICHAEL BY PUTTING ON ONE OF THESE DYNAMITE FEDORAS, TIPPING IT COCKILY TO THE SIDE, AND LETTING THE GREAT JACKSON MUSIC FILL YOUR HEART.

 

Here are some handsome choices:

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                        SUMMER HOTTIES

 

METAL plays an important role in jewelry this summer.  Look for both silver- and gold-plated pieces.

 

BIG STONE RINGS are riding a crest of importance, in gemstone colors, frequently cabochon, set in handsome metal designs. They are as suitable for day as for evening wear.

 

BIG NECKLACES are just the thing to fill in that too low neckline, or to bring attention to it!  The statement necklace with significant wide as well as long design brings jewelry into a new dimension.

 

INDIAN BRACELETS make you think of Middle Eastern dancing, with diaphanous saris and half-veiled beautiful faces.  These bangle bracelets jingle and jangle, are heavily decorated with gems, and flash color across any room. Gold is the metal of choice, but don’t forget enamel, it is dynamic!

 

ALMOST ANYTHING WITH INDIAN INSPIRATION IS HOT RIGHT NOW.  LOOK AT THESE GREAT ITEMS:

  • India-Indian:  Purple and crystal chandelier earrings add sparkle and elegance to any outfit!
  • American Indian:  Stretch bracelet in tribal motif, bronze plated with jagged patterns and brown jewel tones for a primitive, handmade appearance.

                              

 

                                                    Little Bags, Big Impact

 

LITTLE CLUTCH BAGS, not unlike minaudieres, only less formal, look terrific in bright colors, invariably swinging sexily from dainty, ladylike chains. Most of the newest here are little rectangular bags that might be over-grown hard eyeglass cases.  Great for day or evening wear! 

 

A SMIDGEON OF GOLD, not too much, not too little, gives a richness to everything.  Make it skinny little gold bangles.  Or gold chain necklaces.  Or thin gold slivered earrings.

   – All carefully crafted to reflect the brilliance of real extravagance, without getting into the cost.

 

SILVER BRACELETS with stamped cutouts, often give the impression of wrist-circling vines. These are mostly wide cuffs, softened by the airiness of the cutouts.

 

YOU CAN ENJOY THE LOOK OF REAL GOLD AND SILVER WITH THESE TERRIFIC PLATED VERSIONS.  THE DESIGNS ARE RICH, THE COST IS LOW.

 

 

 

 

           

                                     The Sound of the Coral Sea

 

TURQUOISE AND CORAL:  Have there ever been two more perfect gemstones for summer wear?  They seem to breathe of tropical temperatures and palm tree vistas.  Little turquoise beading as well as large stones make necklaces and bracelets real must-have items.  As for coral:  It looks good everywhere, but especially in rings and earrings.  Put it on and turn on to the sound of the Coral Sea. 

 

COWBOY BELTS, especially skinny ones, look great on gals young and old.  Popular now:  Thin cowhide belts with oval matte silver buckles, heavily tooled.  Add a cowboy hat for sheer perfection!

 

                                          Time and Again

 

VINTAGE POCKET WATCHES are certainly uptrending, but be careful which ones you choose.  The old-fashioned gold-encased circular watch your great-granddaddy wore just doesn’t make it, at least not right now.  The big trend watch we are talking about is smaller and a little later version.  Think of gold- or silver-plate watches, preferably with some decoration. Then – and this is important – hang one around your neck like a pendant from a matching metallic chain. The watch no longer works?  Don’t sweat it!
