ALL IN THE DETAILS: Mixed Metals

Let’s say hello to June and this sunny summer! On the West Coast the summers are hot and can feel almost perfect to any tourist that’s used to humidity. It’s the kind of weather that makes you want to roll the windows down and sing at the top of your lungs. It’s the kind of weather that makes it socially acceptable to wear shorts and a tank top almost anywhere you go. On fun summer days like this, there is absolutely no time for a Fashionista to figure out a complicated outfit.

This Fashionista embraced neutral colors, simple clothing items and everyday jewelry. Her jean jacket brings the whole outfit together and is a staple item for those chilly, beach summer nights. You can find jean jackets anywhere from your favorite department stores to the hidden-gem consignment stores. It’s lightweight, thin and provides an easy upgrade to the outfit. This Fashionista’s basic summer uniform is completed with classic, everyday jewelry that almost everyone owns. Her Alex and Ani bracelets can be fun and personalized to her personality with traits such as her zodiac sign, hobbies and favorite colors. I love Alex and Ani bracelets because they are quality peices of jewelry that can dress up any kind of outfit. They can tell a story by the charms they hold. Her simple rings add a light touch without being too overbearing. Finally, her gold watch sets off the tone with a series of mixed metals on her wrist.

These accessories go with absolutely everything! From dressing up to dressing down, a bundle of simple jewelry pieces can pull together any kind of outfit.

How To: Next time you’re running late for class and find yourself throwing on a pair of jeans and a white shirt, quickly put on a couple different kinds of jewelry pieces and you’ll find yourself effortlessly put together. Whatever you find yourself wearing, your simple, small pieces can make the outfit just a bit better.
