Go for the bold
Designer Steven Shein gave us his take on wearing bold and bright jewelry.
-Its best to either wear one piece of loud jewelry at a time or go totally overboard and rock a ton of it.
-It doesnt matter what you wear as long as you wear it proudly.
-Whatever one is comfortable with is usually the best way to go.
