Matching their accessories is for some a daunting chore and, for others, a playful activity. We’re here to get you among the happy-to-accessorize folks and turn this daily moment into something you look forward to. At its highest level, think haute couture and runways, accessorizing is out there with art, but when it comes to your day-to-day needs, a few simple rules will do. As a guiding principle, accessories, be it your cool sunglasses or watch and jewelry, should contribute to your outfit, highlight a style, or say something about your personal taste, but not overpower the overall look.
Do silver and gold go together? Once a faux pas to even ask this question, the answer is now a resounding yes, with a few caveats. For example, wearing both gold and silver should seem purposeful, so choose the same style for your jewelry and watch pairing or stack similar pieces. We recommend going for minimalist jewelry because the two-tone pairing makes a bold fashion statement. For example, on the same wrist you can wear a Classic bracelet in rose gold, and a Classic Valentine in silver, or an Elan bracelet in silver and the Icon Link Lumine watch. The warm shimmer of the rose gold will contrast beautifully with the cool, sleek shine of silver and add some zing to your outfit.
Here’s some advice for those wondering how to match jewelry in general. First, let’s tackle the obvious, wearing a jewelry set. The matchy-matchy style is taking over the fashion world, and of course, it blends into accessorizing too. For example, you can wear the matching ring and necklace from the Emalie collection. These pieces are subtle enough not to take over your outfit, but add shimmering interest points to your overall look. For pairing with a watch, choose the same metal color, for example, the Petite Evergold with a matching bracelet in gold, like the Unity.
The adventurous ones looking to wear contrasting accessories should consider some ground rules. Unless you’re going for that “more is more” look, you should choose one centerpiece like the Elan Lumine necklace and pair it with more minimalist jewelry, the Elan bracelet or the Classic ring. For your watch and jewelry pairing, don’t go for styles that are too contrasting. Our Classic watches go perfectly with the jewelry from the Aspiration Collection or Elan Unity.
We hope we whetted your appetite for accessorizing and its countless possibilities. Whether you’re casually browsing sunglasses for men or looking to match your minimalist jewelry to your watch, our guides and ideas will help you get there faster. But don’t forget to break the rules once you’ve mastered them. Anything is permitted within a personal style you thought through well. So, go play!
