My hyperfocused shopping obsessions come in waves. In March, all I wanted to buy were wedge sandals, and in May, tube dresses never left my brain. As of this month, I've become laser-focused on beefing up my collection of statement jewelry. Thanks to the summer heat, I'm trying to wear as little as socially acceptable as possible, leaving the opportunity for interesting layering and complex styling limited. That's where I'm leaning into an eye-catching necklace or a cool pair of earrings to get my fill of sartorial excitement.

One of my more recent sale finds—a gold Laura Lombardi necklace—gets more wear than anything else in my jewelry wardrobe right now and somehow manages to make my lazy-day outfits look aesthetically intentional. Now that summer fashion is in full swing, the outfit-defining power of jewelry is too loud to ignore. To get a glimpse of all of the compliment-inducing pieces in my recent saves and to shop statement jewelry for yourself, keep scrolling below. I guarantee it'll be the easiest wardrobe addition you'll make this season.

Fashion Market Editor

Indya Brown is a fashion editor, stylist, and writer living in Los Angeles. While going to school at Columbia University in New York City, she got her feet wet in the fashion industry interning at Elle magazine, Harper's Bazaar, and New York magazine's The Cut. After graduating in 2016, she joined The Cut as a fashion assistant, eventually working her way up to fashion editor. There, she worked on a multitude of projects, including styling inbook feature stories for New York magazine's print issue, writing and pitching market stories for The Cut, and serving as fashion lead for The Cut's branded content. While New York has been her home for over 10 years, she moved to Los Angeles in the midst of the pandemic in 2020 for a new chapter. Now she is a fashion market editor for Who What Wear, focusing on emerging designers, rising trends on and off the internet, interior design, and BIPOC creatives and brands. Aside from her duties as a fashion market editor, Brown is also a freelance stylist and writer, working on national print and video commercial campaigns for Sephora, The Independent, and Cadillac. Her bylines also include Harper's Bazaar, Vox, and The New York Times. But once the computer goes down and the emails turn off, she's likely eating her way through Koreatown, hunting down vintage furniture, scoping out new outrageous nail designs to try, or taking a hot cycling class.
