Dressing Up in Pretty Jewels

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

This month, I've taken notice of a few new launches in accessories, showcasing soft hues with a vintage romantic vibe. There couldn't have been a style more fitting for the upcoming season! I used to rarely put on jewelry, except for a few pieces my husband bought me over the years. It was all about wearing beautiful patterns and keeping everything else bare. Plus, when my kids were in their toddler phase, it didn't seem practical to accessorize, but with a nice handbag. I failed to realize though, that my outfits were in need of friends.

It wasn't until they got a little older that I re-discovered how well accessories (worn in the right way), could really pull a look together. With winter wear layers being replaced soon with flowy dresses and more exposed skin, it's the best time to show off some pretties!

When it comes to wearing jewelry and accessories, I like to follow two practices:

1.  If your outfit has beautiful detail that deserves the spotlight, such as a floral print or beautiful texture, I like to add daintier jewelry to compliment the look. Small bracelets, thin cuffs, as well as simple necklaces or chokers will marry the look together, without looking overdone. A gorgeous hair pin is also a great option for everyone, even for mom's with little one's.

2. When wearing simpler silhouettes or solid colors, one statement piece can do wonders for your look. A collection of layered necklaces, a bib necklace, a larger cuff or drop style earrings come to mind.  It's a wonderful way to balance out a simple look and look like a million bucks wearing' it.

Try to look for pieces that you can see yourself wearing with many of your outfits. Choose colors and styles that are universal, such as neutrals or gold & silver. And have fun layering metals and textures! I've been a fan of mixing gold and rose gold jewelry together, which looks really pretty and ultra-feminine.

Not sure how to store your jewelry?! Check out a previous post of mine (here), where I share a few storage options for your jewels. What are you looking forward to wearing this Spring?! I'd love to hear all about it!
