Christmas is a time when we get to wear special sparkly jewelry that is different than our normal everyday jewelry. Have you ever found yourself putting on a holiday necklace only to wondering if it goes with your wedding band or those rose gold bracelets you’ve been wanting to wear? Trust us, we’ve all been there! Guess what? The days of matching metals is GONE and we couldn’t be happier. Mixing metals is trendy, but also makes shopping for jewelry and accessorizing a lot easier! Here are some super simple tips to help you upgrade your jewelry game.
1. Overlook Your Everyday Jewelry
When it comes to permanent jewelry like wedding bands and engagement rings, it’s best to simply overlook them and accessorize like it’s not there. We know that might be a bit challenging since they’ve been on your finger for who knows how long!
2. Try A Two-Toned Piece
There are two ways to do this: If you feel like pushing the boundary, wear your two-toned jewelry with other two-toned jewelry. If you’re a bit hesitant, keep it simple by pairing accessories that are only gold and silver to go with your two-toned piece.
3. Introduce A Third Color
Introduce a third color that complements your specific jewelry pieces as well as your outfit. We love mixing gold, rose gold and silver together. But other tones like gunmetal, black or even a gemstone can create a more dramatic ensemble.
4. Layer it Up!
Stacking mixed metals in one place makes it look intentional and not like you got dressed in the dark. Pick your favorite statement piece and then chose items with the opposite color and finally layer ones with both colors. For example, if you’re wearing a gold statement necklace, make sure to add some silver bracelets mixed with two-tone bracelets.
5. Texture is Your Friend
Creating a similar textured combo will make it easier to mix and match different metal colors without being a hodgepodge of competing contrasts. When the items have a comparable texture and are layered together it creates a perfectly balanced accessorized outfit.
There we have it! We hope these 5 tips have helped you rethink how to wear your Christmas jewelry with your everyday jewelry. Below is an image of the ideas we put together just in case you want to pin it for later.
