For many years, I too like most women, held myself on a tight leash when it came to what jewelry I wore and making sure that EVERYTHING matched. And, I’m here to say “Get Over It”!
There are so many exciting and fun textures & styles to choose from when it comes to Jewelry. Bright and Bold Beads, Rhinestones, Metals, and so much more.
But for most women, they struggle to match every piece of Jewelry with an outfit. When you do that, you take away from the uniqueness of pieces and before you know it – it all looks the same and loses its statement. Which is the point isn’t it?
So, before we go any further, I want you to sit back in your chair, take a deep breath, close your eyes and repeat to yourself three times: I give myself permission to MIX my Jewelry.
You can do this whenever you need to. That first time or two you are preparing to “Mix It Up” you may have anxiety and want to resort to your same old ways. It may not be easy for some of you, but I have faith in you that you can do this and once you try it – you’ll notice the difference it makes and so will others.
Ok… I will keep this brief as I want you to play around with the Jewelry you have to see for yourself. Here are a few quick examples of what I’m talking about:
1) It’s perfectly OK to Mix your Metals! Silver, Gold, Hematite and Brass (as seen in picture above). They all look stunning together. That can include a necklace that has a few different metals, throw in a pair of earrings of a solid metal tone to pull out the dazzling look of the other tones. A bracelet and/or Big Statement Ring should be considered too.
2) Animal Prints are amazing! Again, Big Statement Rings are a perfect way to add to your outfit.
3) Jewels, Beads etc…you don’t have to match each piece of Jewelry your wearing to be the same style. Wear a Turquoise or our Hot Spring Color ~ Jade, ring or bracelet. Follow it up with a Silver or Gold Necklace and Earrings.
Remember…. Repeat after me: I give myself permission to MIX my Jewelry.
