A perfect ensemble might consist of a charm bracelet, drizzling gold pieces, or a long silver necklace, embellished with crystals draped about the collarbone. Ladies, these are the touches of finesse and the subtle nuances that a woman with a discerning eye will apply to her fashion game. Enter Amber Sceats, the latest generation in a family line of talented designers. Don’t expect to see the bulky, a pop tart tabloid featurette as ill-advised by a clueless stylist in that of Ms. Sceats’ collection. On the contrary. You’ll find a vast collection of truly inspired pieces that add a flourish of pizzazz or a burst of utter awe to any woman’s wardrobe.
What are some of the killer looks that will transform you from a wilting little girl, to a woman of experience who turns heads? Necklaces, rings and bracelets are the categories best suited for discussing a winning fashion upgrade. Some rules to live by: avoid bulky clutter, aim for accentuation, go for the gold, and shine. Cryptic, much? Just a little. But you’ll get the picture.
Besides the usual wedding ring, your hand should sparkle with something alluring. We’re talking about subtle refined pieces that add dimension to a woman’s presentation. We love Ms Sceats’ Bamboo Ring, a delightfully colorful piece of jewelry detailed with crystals. The rings come in an assortment of colors from cobalt blue to peach to aquamarine that burst and shine under the spotlight.
Some of us are genetically gifted with long necks and stunning collar bones. Some of us aren’t. But that equally doesn’t mean we can’t dress up our assets or downplay our weaknesses with the right jewelry. Something that drapes brilliantly across the collarbone is optimal.
Ms. Sceats has unwrapped what she calls a Boleyn Necklace, a multilayered gold necklace that looks heavily inspired by Cleopatra. It hooks in the back and in the front boasts complex gold loops and dazzling crystals sprinkled throughout. Wear this with your boldest, confidence-boosting attire. Expect mouths to drop and men to fall at your feet.
And perhaps our favorite piece from Ms. Sceats’ collection is the Fortress Necklace. It’s simple and understated with its silver links and three crystal coated links. What do you wear it with? Anything you want. The marriage of silver and crystal are perfect for adventurous nights out on the town, running with the wolves in the office, or lunch with friends in the city.
Taking a page from the no bulk rule, your bracelet should be charming not gaudy or clumsy. That being the case, think of adding just a bit of spice to your ensemble. One or two pieces is usually good enough to bring the whole picture into frame.
Ms. Sceats’ Fortress Bracelet takes over where the Fortress Necklace passes the baton. The bracelet features crystal covered bars in the center of each loop. Your wrist will hypnotize any onlookers caught in its reflecting rays of light.
Another spectacular piece for your wrist is the Wave Bracelet. It is one part contemporary art, the other part high functioning fashion. A 22 ct. gold bracelet with deliciously shaped linking cubes, the wave bracelet is multifunctional, ready for high brow events or cut loose adventure.
We’ve been enchanted by Ms. Sceats’ fashion foot forward for the woman who wants to move well beyond girly ambitions and embrace her more adult ones. Don’t want to take our word for it? Go to ambersceats.com to see for yourself.
