Like clothing, jewelry is subject to the ever-changing cycle of trends.

From brands like BaubleBar, Kendra Scott, and Sarah Chloe, we curated our favorite gold jewelry that gives the perfect amount of shine without breaking the bank.

A personal favorite of mine, the wrap dress is a summertime clothing chameleon. Wear it as a cover-up to the beach, a special occasion dress, or to work! Though this style is truly year round, I've found 12 of the best summer wrap dresses full of floral prints, lightweight fabrics, and bright colorways made for twirling in sunshine.
