If my outfit doesn’t match, I literally cannot deal. The shoes, bag and accessories all have to be coordinated. The thought of wearing my yellow gold engagement ring and a sterling silver bracelet together used to be my worst nightmare. I would cringe at the thought of wearing mixed metal jewellery, until something clicked. I had a lightbulb moment and thought, ‘GURLL, you would rock those rose gold rings’, so I did.
Hi, my name is Casey and I overcame my fear of wearing mixed metal jewellery.
Like me, if you too have this fear, I got you covered. Follow these basic steps and you will be slaying the mixed metal jewellery trend in no time!
- Wear black. Nothing beats a LBD. In my case I opted for my Little Party Dress ‘Mandy Wrap Dress‘. The method behind wearing black is pretty straight forward. Colour and prints add another overwhelming aspect to the outfit. I just can’t handle that. Plus, like they say ‘ I’ll stop wearing black when they invent a darker colour’.
- Don’t overdo your hair and makeup. Keep it simple, you want the jewellery to stand out and make a statement. My amazing BFF and hairdresser Hannah, (@hair.by.hannah.carter) styled my hair with effortless curls and volume. I created a glowy make uplook with a bronze smokey eye.
- Don’t go in with guns blazing. Start minimal. Choose fine, mixed metal pieces that complement each other. You don’t want to look like Mr T. All jewellery worn is Minimalist Jewellery.
- Drink cocktails. If you are still feeling uneasy about your new fashion statement, don’t stress you look gorgeous. A few cocktails will make the new experience a lot easier, trust me. I recommend something with sparkling wine.
