ALL IN THE DETAILS: Dainty Jewelry

April 8th, 2015 at 2:00am

If there is one thing that I have learned about styling an outfit, it’s that accessories really make all the difference. A statement necklace or a structured bag in a bold color can take an all-black outfit from ordinary to extraordinary. A jewelry trick that makes any outfit chic is layering dainty pieces. The most important part of this trend is to make sure each piece is simple and of varied lengths.

This Fashionista obviously has mastered the art of accessory pairing. Her layered outfit is appropriate for Ohio spring weather which can vary from 25 degrees to 70 degrees. Another trick this Fashionista has grasped is the concept of lighter layers. Light layers are a drastic change from the bulk of winter sweaters and fur vests but are much easier to mix and match. I also love the time this Fashionista has taken to curate her items to a specific color story. She pairs tans, whites, grays and golds to create a neutral look that isn’t stale but crisp and fresh. She wins bonus points for finishing her look off with a beautiful unstructured leather bag with subtle monogram engraving.

How To: You can focus on more than just necklaces to layer your jewelry. To create a diverse bracelet moment, start with a watch in a solid color such as gold or silver. Build upon that with a colored metal bangle. End the look with a thin leather bracelet. The trick here is to keep thicknesses varied and to use different colors yet stay in the same color wheel.
