Did you know 2014 is the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Horse? The spirit of the horse is recognized by the Chinese as energetic, bright, warm-hearted, intelligent and able … and of course, the horse also makes for some very chic fashion inspiration, which brings us to my latest blog post!
From bracelets, earrings, necklaces, belts and more, one of the best ways to incorporate an equestrian touch to any look is through accessories. I’ve narrowed down a few of my favorite pieces you can purchase online.
Bangle by Coach: $78
I love this “Thin Op Art Pave Bangle” by Coach. It has a pretty “bit” look to it that any horse lover can appreciate. This would look great stacked with other bangles or warn alone. Plus, it comes in 4 cute colors!
Cuff by Andresgallard: $458
Every girl deserves to treat herself to a nice piece of jewelry every now and then, and this “Destrier Cuff” I found on Anthropologie’s website is perfect. The cuff is 8k gold plated brass, with two porcelain horse heads and is absolutely gorgeous, wouldn’t you agree?
Necklace by Beau and Stella: $36
Shout out to this local artist in New Orleans who shares her love of horses by creating beautiful pieces under $100. With a delicate horseshoe and heart sitting side by side, this “Lucky in Love” necklace is one of my favorites. Who knows … this piece could be your new good luck charm at the races!
