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…
Experiment With Length And Texture
Summer is the quintessential season for wide or oversized hoops, for statement pieces and for large swings in general. Pieces that dangle will mimic and amplify your face and body movements.
In addition, consider pieces made from distinct components, so they can catch the sun at different angles and with different intensity. These could be something as simple as small gems incorporated into larger designs.
Solve For Colour
To get the pairings just right, curate your collection by colour.
For example, you could have a tropical theme with only the wildest pinks, yellows and blues. Separately, you could have a safari theme that concentrates on earth tones, beiges, creams, browns and dusty greens. And finally, have a party-ready theme that is solely focused on high-shine pieces that incorporate diamonds and considerable amounts of gold.
Breaking The Pattern
If you have a piece that you really love, but doesn’t fit into any of the colour themes so far, add it to your summer collection anyway. Then keep curating a few more items around it until you end up with a mini theme that represents your current taste. These will be the wild cards, the pieces you turn to when you no longer feel like wearing something that’s been on rotation for several weeks.
