My Top 10 Stella & Dot Picks of the Season

by Tracy James

When "The Jewelry Guy" Jerry LaSuer, Alabama's first Stella & Dot stylist, asked me to pick my Top 10 favorite pieces from the accessory line's Fall 2016 collection, I was happy to oblige, as I am a fan myself. There is something for everyone on this favorites list - the fashionista, the traveler, the classic, the hip teen, etc. See something you like for yourself or as a gift, order via this link  before October 7 and a portion of sales will be donated to the Humane Society.

1) Marcell Collar Necklace

When wearing black clothing or shoes, I always like to pick up the hue in my accessories, which pulls a look together. This gold collar wrapped in genuine black leather is the perfect piece for that purpose.  

2) Hammered Wire Large Hoops

A favorite of many of my clients, these earrings can offer a "little something" to complement a minimalist look, but are delicate enough to be worn with layered or statement necklaces and not compete.

3) Gilded Path Ear Climbers

Prove your coolness factor to the teen in your life by gifting the hottest trend in earrings, these ear climbers in vintage gold and black pave. Or, add fashion-forward edge to your own wardrobe!

4) Getaway Bag in Black/Cream

The ideal bag for any traveler, this tote features a zipper that extends the bag 2 inches, allowing for vacation shopping. My world-traveling mom quickly snapped one of these up for herself. a great seal of approval!

5) Park Slope Leopard Scarf

A great way to add the print of the Fall 2016 season to any outfit.

6) Genevieve Tassel Necklace

I admit I've grown a little weary of the tassel trend, but this one feels different, perhaps because of its tribal look. Wear together with the beaded necklace that comes with it, or separate.

7) Ally Double Wrap and/or Terra Wrap

Per my explanation for #1 of liking black accessories to tie a look together, either (or both) of these pieces are great if you want that touch to be on your wrist.

8) Zoe Lariat Necklace

In gold or silver, this lariat is an example of one of Stella & Dot's "wear a hundred different ways" pieces that actually works.

9) Tiburon Necklace

Perhaps the best bang for your buck of the season, this is simply just a really pretty piece. (As with all of Stella & Dot pieces, it looks even better in person.)

10) Celine Wrap Bracelet in gold

A great gold bracelet that fits any wrist size, for stacking with your watch or other bracelets.
