A crystal centerpiece sparkles like a genuine gemstone and enhances the appearance of daily apparel and accessories. We have a large selection of outstanding individual crystal charms. They can be used as a central focal point or for use among other stones and beads for an outstanding one-of-a-kind dazzling piece of jewelry. We proudly offer the latest elegantly-styled faceted crystal designs.

These days, charm bracelets are extremely popular, and there are few better ways to make them stand out than with a beautiful and sparkling charm. Regardless of the number of charms or types of charms you currently have on your Pandora bracelet (or a similar type of charm bracelet), there’s always room for a stunning crystal charm – especially when it’s affordably priced.

Our selection of glittering crystal charms is so alluring and eye catching that you’ll want to purchase more than one charm. The crystals are designed to be compatible with the top name brands of exclusive bracelets like Biagi, Pandora, Camilia, and Troll – or to be worn independently.

Holiday Party Attire

by ClearanceCharms

The holiday season is the best time of year for so many reasons – coming together with friends and family, giving gifts, and of course holiday parties! The biggest question of the season other than what presents to buy is what to wear to all the fabulous events! Since most would rather spend money on gifts than splurge on a new outfit, below are a few tips on how to create a holiday inspired look straight from your closet!

Some parties require little effort – for instance when dressing for an office party during or after hours, dress in something you would normally wear to work, but in holiday colors. A crimson sheath dress with a cardigan or shawl would be office party perfection. For a tacky sweater party – the dress attire is given, so go to your local thrift store and find the tackiest of tacky sweaters and just have fun with it!

For more formal occasions, try heavier fabrics in rich seasonal colors, such as a dark taffeta or velvet and don’t forget about sequins – an absolute must for the holiday. Layering is key! Layering will help keep you warm to and from the events without weighing you down once you arrive. Pair tights and a cardigan with your ensemble and winter coat – if you begin to get hot, you can remove layers, and if you are cold, you won’t have to wear a heavy jacket during the party to keep warm.

The key is to go with the flow while being functional and chic. If your significant other’s family spends Christmas morning in PJ’s, don’t show up in a cocktail dress – join in and wear red flannel or satin pajamas to be both festive and comfortable.

Remember that it is not about what you wear or how you look, the holidays are about being around those you love the most – the ones who have seen you in a sweatshirt and scrunchie before so don’t stress! Have fun and enjoy the company surrounding you! Happy holiday season!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside…

by ClearanceCharms

As the air fills with a crisp chill and a steady feeling of fall settles over the evenings, we are drawn to the winter section in our closets that has been neglected for months and months. Finally, it is coat season!

Coats, jackets, cardigans – anything you can layer during the colder seasons are perfect for both warmth and style. Yes, you can look cute and be warm! Forego the oversized ski parkas for coats that are cute, functional, and reflect your individuality.

Traditionalist – Go for a classic wool pea coat or trench with clean lines.

 

 

Edgy – It’s all about the leather jacket over layers. Go biker chic with studs!

Trendsetter – Whether you prefer real or faux, fur is the way to go this season.

 

A great patterned coat can add some flair to any bland winter ensemble as well. Pair your coats with warm accessories such as oversized scarves and gloves and you’re more than ready to brave those harsh winter mornings while looking simply fabulous!

Don’t forget to donate your old coats to those in need! Whether to Goodwill, One Warm Coat, or any of the other amazing charities out there – let’s keep everyone warm this winter! Go online to find a coat drive near you.

How to: Wear Multiple Bracelets

by ClearanceCharms

What’s the hot new trend popping up on the runway from New York to Milan? Arm candy! Stacked bracelets are the perfect accessory to bring a unique energy to your style. Whether you have an eclectic style or are more of a traditionalist, this fun new trend can be tailor made to fit your favorite look.

To perfect the art of stacking, take some of your favorite bracelets in varying sizes and styles and begin layering. Remember – the bracelets don’t need to match perfectly, they simply need to coordinate. If you prefer a more subdued look, choose bracelets that have similar shades as those in your ensemble; they will add an extra element without being distracting.

If you’re feeling bold, throw on multicolored bracelets that contrast the colors in your outfit – just keep in mind that you shouldn’t go overboard. One arm of statement bracelets is perfection; however both arms full may overpower you and your wardrobe. My personal favorite is mixing textures, such as Lucite and leather, in more neutral tones, and then throwing in a few pops of color.

Whichever way you wear them, wear them with confidence! Look and feel great while being oh so stylish.

Wear Orange (Without Looking Like a Pumpkin)

by ClearanceCharms

And so the holiday season begins! Fall marks the first glimmer of festive lawn decor and seasonal activities.  The best way to show your holiday cheer is to dress for the occasion. While some opt for more direct ways (i.e. holiday sweaters), we at Clearance Charms prefer a more subtle approach to celebrating fall and Halloween through our attire.

A perfect color to wear for fall is orange. Some of you may have a fear of this color and think that you cannot pull off such a bold color – rest assured, you can! Orange has a wide range of shades, varying from deep rust to tangerine. There are orange hues suitable for all skin tones and styles.

A great way to incorporate orange is to use it as an accent color. A simple pop of color can turn any drab ensemble into a fabulous, individualized outfit. Add an orange accessory, such as a bracelet or handbag, to a muted outfit for a festive flare. Try to stay away from pairing a brighter orange with black or green however, to avoid a Halloween themed look.

If you want to go all out with orange, make sure the hue does not have to compete for attention – it should be the focal color of your attire. For work and weekend ensembles, keep accessories simple; a great nude heel or a brown boot is the perfect pairing for a rich orange shade. For an evening look, pair a muted orange with a great metallic for a formal yet fun feel.

We hope this has given you some helpful hints for your fall wardrobe. Be festive, be bold, and be chic. Happy October!

How To: Wear White After Labor Day

by ClearanceCharms

So here’s the thing – I hate following rules. Laws I agree, are put in place for a reason but when it comes to social regulations, I must say I am a complete rebel. Who wants to conform when you can be a beautifully unique individual? Dare to be different!

Today I will let you in on one of my rebellious little secrets: it is completely acceptable to wear white after Labor Day! The ‘faux pas’ of wearing white during the fall and winter is in the past. Though it can be tacky if worn incorrectly (anything has that potential) overall it is completely appropriate. With a few simple suggestions, you’ll be able to wear crisp whites throughout the seasons while looking fabulous and fashionable.

Materials – make sure the fabrics you choose are weather appropriate. For instance, white wool slacks would be chic and warm, however a pair of linen pants would seem out of place and just plain chilly.

Layers – layering items is not only stylish but also ideal for the changing seasons when the weather is unpredictable. Combine cashmere and leather to any winter white outfit to give it depth, warmth, and weight.

Colors – since white clothing look light and airy by nature, draw them into a seasonal look with darker colors and patterns.

Accessories – cold weather accessories are vital not only to a white ensemble, but to any fall/winter outfit. Scarves, tights, gloves, capelets, etc. can all be added to a white garb to winterize it.

With these helpful tips, I hope you’re able to transition your favorite white pieces into year round items. Remember that no matter what, you should remain true to who you are and your own individual style. Have fun rebelling!

I have a secret…

by ClearanceCharms

I have a secret.  It’s the kind of thing you hide away from friends, coworkers, family members.  It’s something I’ve saved just for myself for so many years that I can’t even imagine giving it away.  But today… I will.

Perhaps we all have some little untold tidbit that would change our grasp on reality if told?  Mine, as it were, happens to be a style trick.  A little known factoid that even fashion and beauty pros haven’t picked up on.  I know you were hoping for something really juicy;  she’s secretly Angelina Jolie – gasp!  But I assure you, this little teeny tiny trick will change your life.

Being a true California girl, I’ve adopted a sort of laissez-faire attitude when it comes to some aspects of my daily beauty routine.  Granted, I’m never (ever) going to forget to put on nightly eye cream but perhaps I’ll waive my primer or foundation.  And you certainly will never (ever) see me without accessories, but there is a good chance that I’ll be sporting just-rolled-out-of-bed tousled hair that one co-worker once graciously dubbed “so Ralph Lauren.”  It is this sometimes glamorous, sometimes disastrous tousled hair that is the starting point for my little secret.

While I am not the type of person for buttoned up apparel or perfectly coiffed chignons, I certainly wouldn’t want to appear unkempt.  But let’s admit it, sometimes the effort of washing/conditioning/product application/drying/curling/ironing/more product is just too much for a girl to handle before she’s had her first sip of latte in the morning.  I also happen to be one of those people who has superfine but also superfluous hair atop my head.  To that end, I will admit it, I wash every other day.  I count myself in good company of some very fashionable women who practice this alternating method.  However, sometimes my ‘do gets a bit unruly, one might say.  And heaven forbid anyone should ever know that I didn’t wash my hair in the morning!  The horror.  If you suffer the same fate as I do, this little secret of mine is going to save you a lot of angst.

Ok, here it is.  You’re officially the first to know my hard-kept well guarded secret….

Earrings.  The bigger, the better.  I’m talking big huge sparkly suckers. 

With big, bold, beautiful earrings adorning your lovely albeit slightly rumpled head, no one will ever notice that you’ve skipped the blow out.  Seriously.  I know you’re thinking, “Come on, all the melodrama and she says wear earrings?”  But trust me, it is the most amazing revelation.  I think it’s a combination of people being distracted away from your messy mop to something so beautiful but it’s more than that.  Having a gorgeous set of earrings frame your face truly accentuates your best asset – your smiling face!  Suddenly the most amazing thing about your entire look is put on display and everyone will take notice.  Just watch how your waitress looks you in the eye, or how your assistant is instantly perkier and much more obliging.  Your whole aura will be transformed, and no one will ever be wise to the reason.

Of course now everyone in my office will be examining my hair each time I happen to wear my favorite Nugz Jewelry earrings with Pink Constellation Nugz, but I’m glad to sacrifice my secret for the better of woman-kind.  The next time you just want to hit the snooze, give this tip a whirl.  And be sure to report back – I know there will be an amazing pep in your step!

xoxo

Fall Fashion: Equestrian Chic

by ClearanceCharms

Autumn is the reigning champion of seasonal bests: cool weather, pumpkin spice lattes, changing leaves, and of course – fall fashion! Perfection is in the details when it comes to your autumn wardrobe. There is nothing like a mix of cashmere, wool, and leather tied together by chic accessories. One of this fall’s hottest new trends is an updated spin on a classic look – Equestrian Chic.

The style takes on a playful combination of traditional horseback essentials, such as jodhpurs, boots, and riding jackets. The classic equestrian look has been an iconic image of poise and grace for decades and we hope that this guide will inspire you to take the concept and evolve it into your own style!

Essential Pieces:

Jacket – whether you go with a classic riding jacket or a more modern pea coat, nothing says fall like great outerwear! Mix things up with a striped or plaid blazer layered with other patterns for a look of depth and interest.

Skinny pants – perfect for tucking into boots, skinny pants and jodhpurs are ideal for an equestrian look. Try different fabrics such as leather or colored denim to create a unique feel.

Dress – for an easy fall ensemble, throw on a dress and tights. Pair the outfit with a fabulous riding boot and you’re ready to go looking chic and in season.

Accessories – to quote a favorite movie, Steel Magnolias – “the only thing that separates us from the animals is our ability to accessorize.” Take a basic outfit and individualize it with great jewelry and a classic bag. Keep warm on those cool fall mornings with leather accessories and cashmere scarves!

Boots – arguably the most important item in a great fall wardrobe, the boot screams ‘fall’ and ‘equestrian.’ Try a tall riding boot for running errands, or an ankle boot for a night on the town.

Whatever your style, whether you are a modern traditionalist, a chic bohemian, or an urban sophisticate, the equestrian look can be adapted and styled to fit your personal preference. Get creative and have fun while you are enjoying the amazing weather and brilliant colors of autumn! We love it so much that we designed a bracelet to celebrate the seasonal beauty!
