Spiked Jewelry: Subversive Style

I may have turned in my sports car for a SUV (for now), but that doesn’t mean I’ve handed over the keys to an edgier style as well.


Sometimes the carpool line needs a little subversion – I like it in the form of spiked jewelry.

This look has been around for a bit, but I still love it. It’s just the right amount of edge to differentiate yourself and looks great when juxtaposed with a straight-laced cardigan.  

Got an “arm party” happening on that wrist? A few spiked bangles for texture are a must. Be sure the tips are slightly rounded – we wouldn’t want to injure anyone and create an actual “fashion emergency.”
