Ever find yourself putting on a 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 super 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 That Platinum Engagement Ring. 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. Wear Two-Toned Pieces. 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. A Third Color into The Combo. 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. Create a Layered Look. 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. Wear Similar Textured Metals Together. 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.
