Adding the final touches to your outfits with the right jewellery is an absolute must: an accessory can completely transform a look, even the most basic, and make it unique and personal. Just like there is for clothing, the accessory world also has its rules for the proper pairing, not to mention the fashion trends, which change each season.
Take bracelets for example: it’s an accessory that’s easy to wear and is perfect on any occasion, but it’s never banal. The latest jewellery trends are clear: this season, bracelets with pendants and charms are an absolute must. But wait, there’s more: the second rule for wearing stylish accessories dictates that bracelets decorated with dangly pendants and charms should never be worn individually.
Combining two or more charm bracelets is the essence of this season’s jewellery trends: but how do you flawlessly pull off this trend Here are our tips for choosing the best 2018 fashion forward bracelets, along with suggestions for how to combine them without committing a faux pas.
Large silver charms for your everyday looks
Silver is a precious material which goes together perfectly with many looks: it’s great with the informal ensembles that you wear in your everyday life, and it goes smashingly with your most elegant looks on formal occasions. Which piece you choose depends on the jewellery’s craftsmanship and aesthetics.
Let’s talk about bracelets to wear in your daily life, going to work, to school, and in your spare time.
Stainless steel is perfect for clean, simple bracelets embellished with large charms. A rigid bracelet with a heart-shaped pendant is exactly the right hint of romance to keep with you always to enhance your everyday outfits.
The perfect combo to be fashionable in 2018? A silver bracelet decorated with a large pendant charm that’s meaningful: the the initial of someone you care a lot about, for example.
Different metals for a glamorous effect
A taboo for many years, the last few seasons have seen a complete fashion overhaul: different types of metals can be mixed together in the same look. We no longer have to combine silver jewellery with just other silver jewellery, or gold with just gold: the most stylish matches are the ones which can harmoniously unite different metals together.
With regards to bracelets, it really isn’t that complicated to mix several metals together. For starters, more and more bracelets are crafted by placing silver and gold metals side by side, for a look that’s chicer than ever.
But just how do you choose which bracelets to wear together in order to create the perfect mix of metallics? The key word is harmony. The form, design, pattern and gemstones which decorate the various bracelets must be in sync and therefore similar.
The gold colour of the former and the metallic silver of the later blend together perfectly, just like the pendant charms decorating each bracelet do.
Instead of yellow gold, if you want to try combining silver with delicate rose gold, go with the Mixit bracelet with heart-shaped charms: a look that’s both romantic and rock.
Bracelets with charms and sparkling gemstones for elegant occasions
Coloured gemstones make the most glamorous charms for bracelets to wear on formal occasions. A pop of colour is just what’s needed to brighten up your look when you want to stand out: bracelets are swankier and glitzy and become the focal point of the look.
Just how do you mix a bracelet with large coloured gemstones together with another bracelet? All you need to do is choose one that’s metallic and has simple but bold charms. The
Il Allure bracelet with coloured Swarovski crystals is the right accessory to add some edge to your look, while the brass ROCKinLOVE bracelet with its heart-shaped charms offers a bit of tenderness. It’s the perfect combo for a look with attitude!
Instead of the bracelet with hearts, you could go for the Adorable bracelet with four-leaf clover pendant charms. Crafted in stainless steel, it’s a more minimalist choice and goes perfectly with a flashier accessory. And bracelets with tassels represent another major trend this season: bursting forth from among the four-leaf clovers in this bracelet is a fun, coloured tassel.
