Mixing Metals

A couple weeks ago, I did a post on Gold vs. Silver. However, you don’t have to choose! You can wear both at “the same d*mn time” *2chains voice*. Let me give you guys a couple of quick tips for how to do it, and pictures for inspiration….Leggoo!!

Tip #1

Buy pieces already mixed…

Why not let the designers do the work for you and buy pieces that already have gold, silver, copper, or whatever your metallic combo choice already pre-mixed?? It takes a lot of the thought process off your back, while ensuring your success as a metal mixing connoisseur!

Tip #2

Use rings to mix it up…

Rings are a simple, no fuss way to mix a variety of metals into one outfit with out looking forced or tacky. Put on three or four of ’em in a variety of metal shades for a look that adds a sprinkle of edge to any outfit.

Tip #3

Layer, layer, layer…

Bangles, necklaces, whatever, layer them up with varying metals! It can give the allusion of a cohesive mixed piece of jewelry and this method allows you to choose what metals you want to mix versus it being dictated for you by an already mixed piece.

Now be inspired by a couple of photographs…

The tips I gave are just a few easy ways to incorporate a little edge in your outfit via metal mixing, however there are many other ways! Ultimately just do what looks and feels right. Trust your fashion instincts!

Until Next Time!
