Did you know that about 51% of millennial women buy jewelry for themselves? This feminist fashion statement has led to women getting the accessories that they want to wear, when they want to wear them.
If you’re looking to get in on the fun, it’s important to know about the latest minimalist jewelry trends out there. Read on to learn some things that you should consider when shopping for new items to spruce up your wardrobe.
Consider Smaller Accessories
Minimalism is the idea that less is more, so it makes sense that you would want smaller, more subtle accessories. Stud earrings and small hoops go with virtually any outfit. The same applies to tiny charm necklaces or bracelets, simple bangles, and thin-banded rings.
You can spice up these accessories with colored gemstones or beads. Just make sure to keep them small so your new accessories don’t develop a gaudy look. You want to look elegant, sophisticated, and effortless.
Match Your Metals
Sterling silver, rose gold, white gold, and yellow gold are all popular options for simple jewelry. This makes sense when you consider that all of them make for gorgeous pieces.
However, when wearing multiple pieces of jewelry, you need to make sure that your metals match. If they clash, your outfit is going to lack a cohesive aesthetic. You can occasionally get away with a white gold/rose gold pairing, but only with certain outfits that boast both pink and white in different areas.
Don’t Wear Too Much
Small and subtle accessories are surefire ways to go minimalist, but you will cancel out the aesthetic if you wear too many pieces. Stick to one pair of subtle earrings, a sophisticated necklace with a single charm or gemstone, a simple bangle, and one thin ring.
If you pile up too many pieces on top of each other, the likelihood of them clashing is higher. It also makes your jewelry look larger than it already is, so it isn’t ideal for those trying to get into the spirit of minimalism.
Choose Something You Like
Above all, make sure that you choose jewelry that you actually like to look at. You want something that you’ll be proud to show off in both professional and casual settings. Try to get full sets of jewelry whenever you can so that you can match your outfits as well as possible.
Shop for jewelry that you like at an affordable price. Decide on the pieces that will best match your wardrobe as well as your personal tastes. This will help you make a more confident decision so that you can get something that you love.
