Styled by Tara: How to layer accessories for Spring
Posted on January 27 2017
Creating a layered look is a great way to incorporate new pieces into your jewelry wardrobe. Layered looks are featured heavenly in our spring trend reports: it’s all in the mix! Whether you want to focus on necklaces, bracelets and even rings, it’s a trend that you can personalize and change depending on your mood and outfit.
When layering necklaces, you’ll want to pick pieces of varying lengths. For instance, a choker and a longer statement pendant can work very well together; throw in a mid-length 18 to 24-inch necklace in a coordinating metal to add another dimension.
Layering bracelets is more of a free-for-all when it comes to mixing and matching. A proper arm party is all about personalization and texture. This is where leather wrap bracelets, colorful pull-tie bracelets (like the styles we carry from Pura Vida) and designer-inspired cuff bracelets can come together in harmony. The best part is that there are no rules! I like to go with a monochromatic scheme, mixing textures but keeping my accessories in the same color palette. Right now I’m loving our new natural stone and leather wrap bracelets.

Creating a layered look with rings has never been easier that it is with the popularity of the midi ring. These delicate rings sit just above the top knuckle of any finger, and can be worn alone or on the same finger as other rings. Use midi rings to create an expressive, unique look.
While we are on the subject of layering, I would be remiss not to mention my favorite wearable, our classic shawl vest. Whether you throw it on over a dress or use it as a cozy transitional layer over a long sleeved t-shirt and jeans, it’s the best for achieving a cool-girl layered look. I also love accenting our shawl vest with a long tassel pendant as the finishing touch.
