While I love the current trend of pairing statement jewelry with your outfit no matter the occasion, I still find myself reaching for my more minimalist, delicate pieces for everyday. I think that there is something special about having go-to jewelry that you can pair with any type of look, and now that I’m older (and a lot more responsible), I’m ready to invest a little more into those classic elements.
I never leave the house without wearing earrings-I seriously feel naked without them. I tend to wear a pair of large, classic gold hoop earrings because they literally go with everything, but I want to add some more delicate studs and maybe some smaller hoops into the mix as well. I ordered these Zodiac Stud Earrings from AuRate as an alternative for days when I wear my hair completely off of my face or need something simpler to balance out a larger statement necklace.
When it comes to necklaces, I didn’t really start wearing smaller, more delicate ones until maybe 2 years ago. I always reached for larger pendants, but there’s something to be said about whispy gold necklaces that you can wear alone or layer together. I recently got this Delicate Petal Drop Necklace by Madewell, but I really love coin necklaces like this Atocha Coin Necklace by Uncommon James. You can find them anywhere, and I think layering 2 or 3 together at various lengths is so chic. The more the better!
Finding cool rings that can be worn alone or stacked together has probably been my biggest challenge. I use my hands a lot, so I want rings that don’t get in the way, but I also don’t want to only wear simple gold bands. I still want there to be a little interest there. This Revolve Ring by Jenny Bird mimics movement and is right up my alley.
I’m also a sucker for a really good gold cuff bracelet or bangle. I love seeing them stacked together, and this Grey Enamel Bangle by Vince Camuto is perfect to wear alone, or layer with a few thin bracelets and watch.
Minimalist jewelry does not have to be boring, and with Summer (and Sundress season) just around the corner, I’m looking forward to investing in more delicate pieces and building up a mini collection that I can wear with all of my cute little ‘fits.
How many delicate jewelry pieces do you own in your collection?
