When Not To Wear A Necklace

Knowing what not to do is every bit as useful as knowing what to do. And when it comes to styling, this tidbit rings particularly true. Specifically, what are the contexts in which wearing a necklace is not needed or simply impractical?

We believe that it comes down to a simple question: does the necklace add anything to your look? If the answer is yes, it might be best to leave it on. If the answer is no, it is likely that the necklace is objectively unnecessary.

Here are two illustrations of this theory…

What Makes The One Earring Style So Fresh Right Now

New season, new jewellery trend? It would sure seem so, except this one is not a fully formed trend - rather, an inclination towards more freedom in styling jewellery or towards new ways or wearing pieces you already own.

So note this: you won’t be seeing the single earring mini-trend bubbling up just everywhere on Instagram. (Not yet, anyway.) However, if you keep an eye on your favourite celebrities or influencers, you might just spot it every now and again, discreetly accompanying looks that were made to be photographed. And what better way to be ahead of the curve than to take this concept and run with it?

Ahead, we’re taking a closer look at how wearing one earring could guide your style choices this summer.

Business Casual Jewellery, Explained

Whether it’s clearly mandated or unspoken, most working spaces require you to adhere to a dress code. But this is in no way a styling setback. Because the more restrictive the code, the more mental space you have for expressing your personality through jewellery.

Once you’ve curated your jewellery wardrobe, use this question as a guiding principle: who are you meeting today? Clients, colleagues or outside friends?

Let’s look at these environments one by one…

Business Casual Jewellery: Meeting Clients

If your work requires considerable face time with your company’s clients or business partners, you’ll want to position yourself as an expert they can trust. Jewellery is brilliant for this, since earrings and necklaces highlight your face, drawing attention to your expression and to what you have to say.

For maximum credibility, you’ll need to select balanced pieces that are neither under-, nor overwhelming. More specifically, pendant necklaces, precious gemstones and drop earrings are perfectly positioned between dainty and statement.

Business Casual Jewellery: Meeting Coworkers

In a crowded office environment, the keyword is collaboration. This is not the context to put yourself in the spotlight, but rather to relate to your colleagues or employees and be part of the conversation.

Wearing something bright, dainty and colourful will help you be perceived as open, approachable and engaging. Consider a fine bracelet or an assortment of stackable rings.

Business Casual Jewellery: Meeting Friends

Are you an artist, a digital nomad or a solopreneur? Whenever you work alone, your dress code is self-imposed and certainly biased towards comfort. It has to be, because nothing should ever break your focus.

So when you’re going out on a lunch break with your spouse or for some after-hour drinks with your friends, you’ll want to truly shine and enjoy your time off the clock. You can achieve this by wearing (even more) jewellery. Don’t hold back and put on your favourite statement pieces, the ones that express your personal style unapologetically.

And if you’re operating from a studio or from a coworking space and you don’t have time to dash home to change your look, you could consider some transformable jewellery. They can successfully elevate your casual look with minimum hustle.

Summer Is Almost Here: Refresh Your Jewellery Collection

With summer just a couple of weeks away, this is the best time to make some fresh choices. If you curate your jewellery collection now, you’ll have a full range of pre-selected pieces that can take you from late-night partying to poolside lounging time and time again.

As hair becomes lighter, skin gets darker and jewellery shines brighter, this is the season to go wilder with your style choices. Imagine pieces that move like, feel like and fully reflect the spirit of summer: wild, free and luxurious.

Here’s what we mean…

What DOES Statement Jewellery Actually Mean?

Ever wondered what the “statement” part in statement jewellery actually means? Here is a short and quick guide to help you decide.

The rule of thumb is that, if the first thing people notice about you is your jewellery, then it most definitely is a statement piece. For example, a large and intricate necklace worn with bare shoulders creates a visual impact that’s instantly registered by those around you. Likewise, a bright red cocktail ring worn with a white power suit will prompt covert glances that you’ll pick up smilingly.

In short, statement is the opposite of subtle. It is colourful, large or decidedly intricate and it’s the most curated, tasteful and effortless way of staying in the spotlight.

Creating A Styling Cycle With Transformable Jewellery

Jewellery pieces are described as transformable when they have detachable parts that can be moved, removed or replaced in order to create different looks for different contexts.

There is a certain liberty of choice too, as the concept offers unique styling options that would otherwise be impossible.
