cross my heart, and soon to buy

14 Jun

I would be lying if I said I wasn’t totally obsessed with the new trend of crosses that has been cropping up this spring and summer  – cross earings, bracelets, and necklaces galore.

Traditionally, the cross has been most commonly seen as a symbol strictly worn by those of Catholic or Christian faith.  And while it does still hold religious connotations and great value to many, the fashion industry has morphed this centuries old symbol  into an image so versatile that it can be worn by anyone, anywhere.  And, by doing so, the wearer will automatically look chicer and a tad edgier.  Count me in.

After scouring the many pages of Pinterest, here are my favorite cross pieces (look for the “how to” below):

  • necklaces

if  Kourtney is wearing it, you know it has to be fabulous

a bold turquoise version

an oversized pendant

  • rings

small and delicate

the multi-finger statement piece

  • earrings

go big or go home

toughen up with chains

How to wear:

  • DO use to accessorize anything leather, denim or otherwise bad ass looking material
  • DON’T use as an accessory to an outfit consisting of only leather, denim or other bad ass material unless you want to look gothic or like you are about to join a cult (fyi: this is not the look you are going for)
  • DO use to toughen up lace or sheer fabrics
  • DON’T buy a cross that is a crucifix as a fashion statement –  save this for religious purposes
  • DO wear crosses with confidence and a “fuck yeah betches” kind of attitude
What do you think? Would you wear a cross or is it too religious? Comment below and let us know!
