How to style staple accessories for a timeless, modern look.
If 2022 has taught us anything, it's that less is more. With the rise of the modern minimalism trend, investing in staple pieces is both practical and on trend.
The 'modern minimalist' look has been sported and embraced by celebs like Emma Chamberlain, Bella Hadid, Zoe Kravtiz, Matilda Djerf, Alexa Demie and many more.
A pair of classic hoops
If keeping it simple is right up your alley, you can't look past a pair of classic hoops. For a timeless, on-trend look – opt for a pair of simple or textured hoops, like croissant style earrings for a Parisian it-girl inspired look!
You can also keep things unique by switching up the colour, size, shape, and thickness of your hoops or huggies for your own spin on a timeless staple.
Our huggie earrings and larger hoops are great options if you want to show off some personality while keeping it classy. While thread or dainty drop earrings make the ultimate duo when paired with high necklines and a slicked back hair do.
Complete your look with a signature necklace! Silver pieces look great with summery pastel colours, while gold or rose gold plated necklaces complement warm toned outfits.
Chokers look great with off the shoulder or strapless necklines, while longer necklaces are a great focal point for scoop or V-neck necklines. Want the best of both words? Style your daintier, longer necklaces with chunky chain chokers for a chic, layered look.
Rings and Bracelets
We spend so much of our lives looking at our hands, so why not add some eye candy! Pearls have been the accessory of choice for ‘it girls’ throughout the ages and are an eye catching addition to a simple chain bracelet.
Most of us who grew up in the 2000s will recall the allure of a chunky charm bracelet. The 2022 must-have is a pared back, grown-up version with a fine chain and delicate charms.
Quality is key when it comes to rings. Sterling silver rings can be worn day in and day out while keeping their shine. If gold is more your colour, opt for sterling silver plated with genuine gold for affordable yet authentic looking pieces. Simple bands with a unique twist make great staples that will stay in your collection for years. Rings with accent stones or shapes can add extra flair to your outfit.
Layer to impress
Can’t decide what piece to wear? Why not wear them all! Layering your jewelry is a great way to get the most wear out of your pieces and make a fashion statement.
Most jewelry lovers would have heard of the term ‘curated ear’, to describe an ear that is styled using a combination of different earring styles and placements. Not sure where to start? Our stack packs have a variety of earring styles to experiment with.
Dress up a plain outfit by layering your necklaces. Chains of varying lengths will create a nice cascading effect and allow each piece to be visible. Start by layering a simple chain choker or shorter chain with a longer pendant necklace. For a dramatic effect, layer three or more necklaces, selecting one statement piece and two minimal pieces, or play with different shapes and chain styles.
Ring stacking is a trend that’s here to stay! To set your stack up for success, invest in one or two statement pieces that speak to you, then select a few basic bands to complement it. Ring sets and packs are a great starting point for essentials, try pieces from our Gold Plated, Sterling Silver or Recycled Brass collections.
To recreate our go-to stack, adorn the pointer or third finger on one hand with a few dainty bands of varying widths, textures, or metals. Wear a statement ring on the same finger of the opposite hand to balance the look.
Like a spritz of your signature perfume, or your go to lipstick shade — incorporating a few signature pieces in your jewelry collection can help to elevate any outfit. Now that you’ve got the basics down, it’s time to start styling pieces for your own unique look.
