A trend that I absolutely love is lots of piled on silver, antique looking jewellery. This way of accessorising instantly elevates your look from casual to chic, or in this case from basic to cool! This is not a new trend either, its taken many forms and shapes over the years and all of them have been equally stunning! The first version I’m going to show you on the blog is with generally daintier pieces, but you can definitely go as wild with this trend as you want. Almost everything I’m wearing has been found at little nondescript roadside shops in various cities.
I’ve paired my accessories with a basic navy and white embroidered summer dress, strappy lace up leather flats, and a boho cloth bag thats neutral with pops of colour. This is a really easy way to try many accessories at once if you’re an accessory shy person, since the pieces aren’t super chunky. If the idea of wearing a coin belt is too much for you then skip that and try the rest. The key here is to keep the clothes basic but relevant to the style and let the emphasis be on all those stunning silver pieces. This version I’m showing you is quite delicate and appropriate even for people who never accessorise, so if you’ve ever been nervous about adding lots of jewellery to a look, this is a good way to get your toes wet without feeling like a christmas tree.
Ive kept all my pieces in a dull, antique silver finish and have added pops of turquoise and shell. This look has a very bohemian, care free and relaxed vibe about it. It’s perfect for warm summer evenings, music festivals, and for me- long walks on the beach followed by cocktails with friends! Keep your hair natural and your makeup light and radiant, it’s a fuss-free, super easy look so your hair and makeup should match. This is a style I love so you’ll be seeing me experiment with piled on silver in many ways. In my daily life, I find one statement silver piece or at least a few chunky, antique rings adds a lot of edge to an otherwise boring look, and to be honest I feel pretty naked unless I have at least one or two accessories. Don’t worry about matching your pieces too much, the great part is that even if your pieces clash a bit, it only adds to the charm of this style.
Stylist Tip– Whenever I travel I like to pick up a few cool pieces to add to my collection. Its always worth taking a look at local jewellery makers and designers while you walk around different cities, you support local artists and get one of a kind pieces! Very often people will be selling on the roadside or in small stalls, so keep an eye out for some amazing steals.
