Tips for Mixing Metals

As you know, I hosted a small style seminar on Monday and one of the ladies inquired about mixing gold and silver jewelry successfully.  I thought this was a great question and most definitely perfect material for a blog post.  Of course, this is just my humble opinion…as to what I think aesthetically works when mixing metals.  Truth is there really aren’t “rules”….but hopefully my tips have you rocking the trend with all sorts of confidence this fall!

Mixing Metals:

1.  Look like you are doing it on purpose.  For example, don’t wear one small dainty silver bangle with a mess of gold accessories.  The poor little bangle will get lost in the sauce and look like a mistake.  Each metal (gold or silver) should have an equal representation (or pretty close).

2.  Include one item that is mixed metal or two toned.  Example, a watch that is both gold and silver, a necklace that has both included or a bracelet.  This one piece sets the tone and allows you to add on silver and gold to your hearts content.

Some examples below!  Hope you find some style inspiration and HAPPY WEEKEND:)
