Do you know how in the last post we discussed simple ways to update an all black outfit? Adding a simple statement necklace or scarf is such an easy, affordable way to look polished and fashion-forward. So what qualifies as a statement necklace? Anything really! Mixed metals, colorful jewels or tasteful crystals will work with any outfit! Make sure you balance out your jewelry, however. If you opt to wear an embellished necklace, try to stick with a small stud earring and limit your bracelets. If you opt to wear a statement earring, feel free to wear dangly, demure necklaces or none at all. It’s a balance act!
Just like leather, there is a right and wrong way to do metallic. Gold and silver metallic make for wonderful neutrals. They can jazz up an outfit or simply complete it. Depending on the time of year, we tend to shy away from metallic shirts and pants (holidays are okay), and opt instead for metallic accessories. An accessory could include a shiny scarf, pretty nail polish, embellished flat, zippy purse or evening clutch. Because dark colors and jewel tones set the tone for fall it’s really fun to play up your metallic game. Keep them in motion! We promise – you won’t regret it!
