Every now and then, I will get a question regarding style “rules” or how to wear a certain piece. I love these! They provide insight into how you all look at fashion and provide a fun challenge for me to answer them. Therefore, I thought it would be beneficial to start a blog segment dedicated to these questions.
Our first one came via my Facebook page:
“Do you wear the gold-rimmed aviators with your white gold jewelry? I can’t imagine changing up my jewelry for my sunglasses.”
This is a great question. We talk a lot about mixing metals, but there do tend to be guidelines in which is the best way to pull off the trend.
I would phrase it more you want to complement your sunglasses with your jewelry, instead of your jewelry with your sunglasses. I recommend having at least two different pairs of glasses: one to wear with silver jewelry and one to wear with yellow gold (of course, if your sunglasses don’t have any metal on it, they most likely can go either way).
That being said, I won’t take off my “everyday” silver or white gold jewelry if I am wearing gold-rimmed glasses but if I’m accessorizing on top of what I usually wear, then I try to match the metals.
Here are some examples:
Gold jewelry = Gold detailed sunglasses
Silver jewelry = Silver framed sunglasses
How would you answer Julia’s question?
