Mix It Up! How to Mix and Match Jewelry
A simple trick to complete whatever look you're wearing is to accessorize with jewelry. Mixing and matching different pieces is a popular trend and it's easy to do!
Our quick tips are: Pick a focal piece, layer it, stack it, add color and don't be afraid of diversity!
A choker makes a great piece to layer other necklaces over.
A boldly colored bracelet can bring out the colors of your outfit.
Beaded earrings that sway can be the bold statement.
PICK A FOCAL PIECE
One important lesson about mixing and matching jewelry is to find a centerpiece and build from there. A centerpiece is usually the one piece of jewelry that stands out the most. The “eye-catcher.”
It can be a chunky necklace, a large ring, or a shiny watch. No matter which focal piece you choose, the additional jewelry pieces should complement that focal jewelry piece.
Layer your jewelry based on size and thickness. Necklaces can be layered by wearing long jewelry pieces with shorter ones. Or start with a choker and build layers from your neck down. Bracelets can be layered by wearing thin, simple looking bracelets together with thicker, chunkier bracelets.
You don't need to pile it on to complete the look, so make sure not to go overboard.
STACK IT 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 what you love and stack it up. Sounds pretty simple, right?
Mixing and matching jewelry can sometimes become dull and boring, especially if you wear pieces of the same color. Break the color monotony by wearing pieces that have a boldly colored accent. Never be afraid to blend in a colorful piece in the sea of gold or silver necklaces. It’ll enhance and make your pieces look exciting and fashionable.
Out of habit, we tend to choose jewelry that matches. If you chose a gold bracelet as your focal piece, the rest should also be in gold. The new trend calls for change. Now, it is actually encouraged to mix jewelry of different metals and stones. This makes the look more unique and trendy.
Mixing and matching jewelry can be intimidating at first but don't be afraid to try new things. The simple key to remember is to not over-do it. Other than that, the combinations can be endless.
