The best thing about fashion? There are no rules. We don’t know who said “no” to mixing metals, but we like to dance to the beat of our own drum, especially since we look good doing it.
Here’s how to mix metals like a true mixing master.
FIND AN ANCHOR PIECE
Start with a mixed-metal piece of jewelry and half the work is already done. Add two to three more pieces that incorporate the same metals for an intentional look.
STICK WITH THE SAME AESTHETIC
When mixing metals, opt for jewelry in the same stylistic realm to create a cohesive look. For example, if you normally wear gold bangles, swap a couple of them for similarly-sized silver bangles.
HIGHLIGHT A UNIFYING COLOR
Combine different-metaled pieces featuring the same accent color—the accent color acts as a medium, tying it all together. Try it out with a gold-and-turquoise necklace coupled with a silver-and-turquoise bracelet.
Mixing metals goes beyond jewelry. Extend these tips to all your accessories and you’ll never have to worry about matching your shoes to the hardware on your bag again!
