We know that a good jewelry layering can elevate any outfit, and by mixing silver and gold pieces together can give a bold and unique statement. Here are 8 tips to follow so you can pull it off like a pro!
- Keep it balanced; we don’t want to wear too much “information” and be a tiring sight, so make look that for bold accessories, you should go for a more settled and basic outfit and vice versa for the lighted accessories; the require bold clothing to bring balance.
- Don’t consider the hardware; when mixing your jewelry you don’t always have to consider the hardware pieces (zippers, sunglasses, purses, etc), unless you want them to stand out.
- Layering the same type of piece; If you like stacking rings or layering necklaces, try putting a silver piece and a gold piece right next to each other. The direct combination of these metals emphasizes the different textures of each piece
- Choose a connecting colour; try mixing metals while choosing a consistent lace colour to pull everything together. This creates the matched look that you might be craving if you’re just starting to experiment with mixing metals.
- Layer to create visual interest; when mixing metals, you should layer different jewelry pieces on top of each other or very close by—for instance, multiple necklaces around your neck or a few rings on your fingers. Try different combinations to determine the most stylish look.
- Compliment your undertone; a great entry point into mixed metals is to mix pieces that complement your skin tone. Yellow gold and rose gold complement warmer skin undertones, while silver and white gold pair well with cooler undertones
- Have a piece that has them all; one of the best ways to ensure a cohesive, put-together look while wearing both gold and silver jewelry is to have at least one combined piece. It will act as the centerpiece, giving you the liberty to wear both metals separately in the way you want without worrying about looking disheveled.
- Focus on one area; when layering multiple pieces, creating a focal point, or using a statement jewelry piece, make sure to keep your primary focus only on one of your central jewelry regions. You shouldn’t be wearing layered or big, bold necklaces, bracelets, and rings all at the same time.
