Whether she’s at the office or channeling a casual normcore vibe for coffee, there’s often that one refined friend who embodies Coco Chanel’s principle of paired back styling. We know that it can look so effortless but sometimes feel unattainable. There are two key factors –a neutral capsule wardrobe and thoughtfully chosen sets of dainty, timeless jewellery pieces in silver, gold and rose gold. Have a peek at how to wear a full body of jewellery with minimalist prowess below.
In the Necklace Department
A single, simple necklace is the foundation of a minimalist jewellery look. If you’re looking to avoid the bells and whistles of statement necklaces for day-to-day styling, go with a piece that is understated, timeless but perhaps a little different –like a wishbone! Bear in mind where it will sit on you and if this will mean it is a bare skin necklace for summer or ideal for layering over a textured knit in winter.
In the Earring Department
We know what you’re –thinking, it’s not difficult to wear a single pair of earrings. The key is combining choice with pairing (for those with multiple piercings). While petite, geometric shapes –particularly in matte shades, worn with simple diamond studs can achieve the minimalist look, more decorative, ‘feature’ or heavy studs usually won't.
In the Ring Department
Dainty is the way to go to ensure minimal hand décor. To avoid verging on plain –try to mix textured bands with rings that have a simple shape feature like the mini triangle above. Wearing multiple metals can create a gorgeous effect if you’ve consciously collective pieces that pair nicely. Think quality and investment pieces when you look for rings –even if it’s just a simple silver band.
In the Bracelet Department
It’s also easy to get stack happy on the bracelet front for better or worse. If you’ve got a range of pieces –perhaps 3-5 if they’re delicate, try experimenting with a stack of all one metal or one beaded texture. For those who have a single yet treasured minimalist bracelet, pair it with a watch to add some dimension to the look. Remember if you’ve got a lot happening in the ring department, keep it simple on the wrist.
