Just because the temperatures have dropped doesn't mean your jewelry has to get pushed to the wayside. We are well aware, though, that figuring out how to style jewelry in the winter is an oddly difficult task considering the amount of layering going on in each and every outfit.

Go on to read the styling tricks from three of our favorite French women and to shop their hand-selected jewelry picks.
"In the winter, I like to upgrade my signature jewelry with statement pieces. I like the Studio 54–meets–cozy outfits kind of vibe. A chunky knit sweater goes perfectly with '70s mesh and chandelier earrings or large gold hoops and bangle bracelets."

"In Paris, it's very cold in the winter. We must wear many layers of clothing, including hats or scarves. To continue wearing my jewels, I choose oversize pieces like earrings or cuffs that I put over my sweater, on my wrist."
"During winter, I like to play with earrings as my neck is usually under a ton of jumpers."
"I'm kind of monomaniac and also very sentimental with my jewelry, so I pretty much wear the same things every day (especially the rings), no matter if it's winter or summer. The things I like to switch the most are my necklaces, though. I used to wear a lot of pendants, and I finally gave in to wearing very fine chokers recently combined with them, as I find they really look great with a V-neck sweater."
And guess what—there's another accessory you may be unnecessarily avoiding this season. See and shop the right way to wear socks with open-toe shoes.
