Every day, we spend time selecting a chic outfit. We style our hair and apply makeup. We take good care of our skin. We beautify ourselves to look our best. But even with all that, we may still need a little bit of a style boost to complete our look. A simple trick to complete your look is to accessorise with jewellery – a lot of it. Mix and matching jewellery is a popular jewellery trend and a simple way to walk out the door looking your best.
So, how does one mix and match their jewelry? Here’s our quick tips:
PICK A FOCAL PIECE
One important lesson about mixing and matching jewellery is to find a centrepiece and accessories from it. A centrepiece is usually the one piece of jewellery that stands out the most. The “eye-catcher.” It can be a chunky necklace, a large ring, or a shiny watch. Whatever it is, your other jewellery pieces should complement that focal jewellery piece. Say you are wearing a large, chunky opal necklace for an anniversary dinner, one can match it with a pair of diamond-studded earrings. A large gold watch can be worn with thin bracelets and rings that have a similar or complimentary tone.
Layer your jewellery based on size and thickness. Necklaces can be layered by wearing long jewellery pieces with shorter ones. On the other hand, bracelets can be layered by wearing thin, simple looking bracelets together with thicker, chunkier bracelets. Make sure it doesn’t look too overwhelming. Never pile too much jewellery.
STACK ‘EM UP
One of the latest styles when it comes to wearing rings is stacking. The best thing about this stacking trend is that there are no rules. It doesn’t matter how many rings you wear. Pick out from any of those cute, affordable pieces from your favourite shops and stack em’ up. Sounds pretty simple and awesome, right?
Mixing and matching jewellery can sometimes become dull and boring, especially if you wear pieces of the same colour. Break the monotony by wearing pieces that have a colourful accent. Never be afraid to blend in a sea of gold or silver necklaces. It’ll enhance and make your pieces look exciting and fashionable.
Habitually, one would think to wear jewellery of the same kind. So if you chose a gold bracelet as your focal piece, the rest should also be in gold. But, present times calls for change. Now, it is actually encouraged to mix jewellery of different metals and stones. This makes the look more unique and trendy.
Mixing and matching jewellery can be intimidating at first but play around with it. The simple key to remember is to not over-do it. Aside from that, the combinations can be endless. A quite simple recipe to arrive at your next party looking beautiful and stylish.
