I love shopping for spring and summer clothes, and I especially love shopping for jewelry to accessorize colorful outfits. Happily, I don't have to look far to find my new favorites since Overstock.com now carries so many fashion jewelry brands. Some of the biggest names in fashion offer these designs, and you'll want to wear them with everything, too. Let Ralph Lauren, Kenneth Cole, and Betsey Johnson help you personalize your look and stay on-trend at the same time.
Spring fashions are full of color, in the form of both minimalist color-blocking designs and extravagant patterns. Fashion jewelry follows the trend with bright shades of aqua, orange, and coral; retro patterns; and oversized pieces meant to be seen. Get the color with these Amrita Singh bangles, this Ralph Lauren coral necklace, or these ABS by Allen Schwartz faceted drop earrings. Big rings continue to be popular, so this beaded starfish ring from Kenneth Jay Lane or this pink-and-yellow flower ring from Betsey Johnson will get lots of attention. And a silk-wrapped bangle from Kenneth Jay Lane will add an extra-bright pop of color to any outfit.
Subtle, understated jewelry is not in the warm-weather forecast. Instead, look for long necklaces with chains, beads, and multiple strands, as seen in these 32-inch silvertone chains and purple beaded strands, both from Adrienne Vittadini. Match the necklace styles with these BCBG goldtone bow earrings. I'm also happy to see all the bracelets on display -- bold cuffs, enameled charms, and beaded wraps with lots of texture -- perfect accessories for sleeveless shirts and sundresses. Consider adding this Kenneth Cole memory wire bracelet, this Jessica Simpson toggle bracelet, or this Carolee cluster bracelet to your collection.

Who is your favorite fashion jewelry designer? Are you fiercely loyal to one or two brand names (head-to-toe outfits plus perfume) or do you like to mix and match?
