It goes without saying what a piece of jewelry can do to an outfit. Style certainly is in the details and that’s the reason why this season’s runway shows were filled with interesting pieces of jewelry. That means that right now it’s all about statement jewelry which, truth be told, can be challenging to fit into your style but here’s a little guide on how to style fashion jewelry like a pro and make every one of your outfits a head-turner.
If huge earrings such are the ones that Dsquared2, Gucci, and Kenzo presented on this season’s fashion weeks seem like too much for you, designers like No21, J. W. Anderson, and Versace offered an alternative trend – single statement earring. It’s up to you to choose the style of your earring and the ear you’re going to wear it on but one thing is for sure – this trend looks stunning. The bigger the better is the general rule to follow but feel free to play with it a bit – fill the other ear with a simple hoop or a post if you’re feeling too asymmetrical.
Using everyday objects as jewelry is not a new thing in fashion but this year this eclectic style got a special green light. That’s why you’ll be seeing ropes, bicycle chains, and even lighters around everyone’s neck. It has a somewhat punk rock vibe to it but the truth is that it can look very stylish and can be a great (not to mention affordable) way to renew your jewelry arsenal. You don’t have to use chains and ropes at all – the same effect can be achieved by re-purposing other pieces of fashion jewelry. For example, some people use their diamond engagement rings and wear them around their necks to get that edgy look from the runway shows.
Making the Most Out of Hybrid Jewelry
Fashion designers such as Mary Katrantzou and Maison Margiela presented what fashion critic called the UFO jewelry – a hybrid between necklace and earrings that turns them into one piece of jewelry. These earring-necklaces are for accessories what jumpsuits are for clothing – an easy way to look trendy with minimal effort. You can choose the style you prefer and, although this trend might seem pretty eccentric – it can actually be easily fitted into minimalist style, as long as you keep the rest of your outfit minimal and choose a good hybrid.
Wearing fashion jewelry like a pro isn’t just about following trends – it’s much more about finding a way for a trend to work in your wardrobe and implementing it into your style. So, make sure you try some of these suggestions mentioned above and see for yourself – good choice and proper styling of accessories can make you look so trendy and get your fashion game to the next level.
