Jewelry Trend- Long, Layered Necklaces

Gigis Bluffton - Monday, March 09, 2015

This Spring and Summer a huge trend that's on fleek (the quality of being perfect; cool) is to layer necklaces. After a few seasons of large oversized necklaces, you may feel a bit naked or bare, but minimalist jewelry can actually make you look effortlessly put together. A combination of delicate, simple pieces is very casually chic and classic. Take a look at some pictures below that I found on Pinterest. 

Here at Gigi's Boutique, we have what you need to pull this look together. If layering feels overwhelming, we even have some one piece necklaces that combine the look of three necklaces in one.  Or, if you want to personalize and have fun layering just follow these 3 steps:

1) Start with a collar/ choker necklace. This necklace should be the shortest and fall in between your neck and collar bone.

2) Add a necklace that's a little longer. Look for a bar or something horizontal.

3) Add a longer necklace with a pendant. 

... and Viola'! That's all there is to it! So, have fun with your jewelry this Spring/ Summer and try layering your necklaces. It will add an effortless, stylish look to your outfit. 

Melinda Maria Jewelry

Gigis Bluffton - Wednesday, October 29, 2014

At Gigi's, we are not always on the lookout for the hottest trends in fashion but also jewelry!  We love it when we find a hot new line like this. New at our store this week is Melinda Maria Jewelry!  Her jewelry is worn by Julia Roberts, Christina Applegate, Vanessa Hudgins, and literally hundreds of others of celebrities. 

Much more important to us though than being worn by celebrities is the quality of this jewelry line. The gold jewelry is brushed with 14K gold so it's truly gold and won't tarnish. While substantial, the line is also really beautifully delicate.  For bracelets, there are a variety of cuffs, bangles, and chains.  For earrings, there are drops, studded ones, dangly ones and hoops.  So many great options! We can't get enough of the necklaces too. All are incredibly unique and fun to play with!  Here's a sneak of what's new in store! 

This fashion forward, affordable luxury jewelry line is just what Gigi's Girls are looking for and we are excited to bring this celebrity jeweler to the Lowcountry.  This line makes a great holiday gift, too! (Did we just say "holiday gift?"!) Why yes, yes we did! 

Fall Fashion: Plaid

Gigis Bluffton - Thursday, October 02, 2014

All month long, we've been reporting on Fall Trends. What's hot for 2014? As we've mentioned, we are seeing a lot of Western/Aztec styles, leather detailing and dark florals. Today we are showcasing another trend in fall fashion and that's plaid! We are seeing it on celebrities everywhere.

The look is reminiscent of those grungy 90s but this time around, it's much more polished and sophisticated. Dresses are tailored and fitted, shirts are slimmer and more flattering. You can wear plaid very casually -- with boyfriend jeans and a funky big hobo bag, or you can wear plaid in a luxe dress. It's perfect when the months get a little cooler! Of course, we have your look at Gigi's Boutique in Bluffton. See what Emily is wearing here!

For prices and more information about each piece, head on over to our Facebook page!  Also be sure to come on in and shop this weekend for these looks and other hot looks for Fall. We love playing "dress up: and will help you style the shirts and dresses too!

Nautical Trends

Gigis Bluffton - Monday, July 14, 2014

Nautical motifs, colors and stripes are nothing new.  In fact, these "nautical trends" you see in fashion magazines and celebrity news aren't really a trend at all.  They're classic and won't ever go out of style.  Though it just so happens this summer 2014, nautical stripes, anchors, ropes, and stripes are particularly in vogue.  And we are seeing the "trend" on the likes of various celebrities and of course, across Bluffton, Hilton Head and the Lowcountry. Brought to you locally by Gigi's Boutique

The darling Dutchess of Cambridge wears nautical blue and white stripes so well. Paired with a tailored blue blazer with shiny brass buttons, pixie thin cut jeans and blue wedges, this nautical look is a smashing success.

Here are more of our favorite celebs wearing a nautical look. We love how these celebs are dressed down in these looks, much like we would wear around town, picking up the kids from camp and running our errands. 

For a bit more tailored, dressed up look, we love the look here! 

We've captured on this trend (errr... classic look that's in style right now!) and stocked up on a variety of nautical looks at Gigi's Boutique in Bluffton.  We've got nautical stripes, anchors, ropes, and that summer look that is so hot right now. 

Above is a sampling of a few of our looks and below is a peek at some of the fabrics of the dresses on one of our racks! SO nautical!  What's your favorite? 

We hope to see you soon in the store to check out all the summery, nautical looks we have in store now! 

Beauty Report: All About Nails

Gigis Bluffton - Thursday, May 01, 2014

During the cold winter months, Gigi's Girls noticed a lot of dark polished nails on the runways and around town. The fabulous Kate Middleton was spotted wearing this deep purple that we thought was just perfection! 

But as the weather is warming up, we are seeing lighter polishes and a lot of "barely there" shades of nail lacquer. A few months ago at The Oscars, celebs were sporting soft, pale and romantic hues.  This nail look at the Oscars was reported by All Lacquered Up and we had to share.  What do you think of this trend in nails? We adore the classic and timeless look. 

Gigi's Boutique is pleased to carry Butter Nail Polish in a wide variety of shades, including this barely there look and dark shades, too!  While in store, you can pick one up to bring to your favorite nail salon, or do it yourself at home! (The tip to a great at-home manicure is to ensure you have plenty of time to dry!  Make sure kids are asleep, dishes are done, laundry is folded.  Turn on your favorite hour long show and just relax!) 

You'll notice too from some of the celebrity photos that there's a trend of "oval" shaped nails. When you sit down for a manicure, usually they'll ask: "square or round?" when they are filing.  A new way to "wear" your nails is to have them shaped oval.  Try this trend on your next manicure at the salon, or at your next in-home mani!   Let us know what you think of Butter and share how you are wearing your nails this Spring 2014.
