ACCESSORIES REPORT: The More the Merrier

Accessories Report

When taking a stroll through the fashions of years past, it is impossible not to notice how jewelry has changed over time. Whether piled on in the manner of the innovative Coco Chanel, or precisely styled a la Jackie Onassis, it seems jewlery has always been considered the deciding factor in any outfit. Lately, there’s been a certain shift from minimalism to full on maximalism, with designers and up and coming retailers showcasing models nearly drenched in a variety of textured bracelets, stackable rings and necklaces. As I consider myself incomplete without my beloved set of rings and spiked bracelets, it was a challenge to contain my excitement when I came across a Fashionista who achieved that unnattainable balance jewelry fanatics strive for.

Although there are a slew of ’fool proof’ guides to wearing multiple pieces, fear no more! The answer lies within one simple concept. Pairing dainty pieces with stronger items (hello, spikes!) from similar color families will provide you with that certain je ne sais quoi, allowing you to achieve a balance worthy of any arm party. Take a note from this Fashionista and sport some quirky knuckle rings. When paired with a knockout manicure (nail envy, anyone?) and an array of perfectly proportioned bracelets, the key to accessorized chic is a lot simpler than you’d think.

Vidakush is a one stop shop for all things delicate and stackable — with an unfathomable amount of designs added each day, keeping up becomes quite a challenge, however this knuckle ring in particular is a timeless option. When paired with a couple of these beauties, achieving that ever so coveted balance will be a snap.

Spotted: Jean Paul Gaultier’s spring 2012 collection featured an array of precisely stacked pieces.
