Which Metallic Is Your Favorite?

When it comes to metallics I used to think that you could only wear silver with black and gold with brown, end of story. Of course, that was before I really started accessorizing and finding out what I like. Although I still prefer silver, there are times when gold is necessary and rose gold or bronze even better. Over the years, I've learned to have appreciation for each and how well metallics can work in so many ways.

Silver still looks good with black, but I am drawn to it mostly due to the glitz factor. Shiny silver really can sparkle and usually this metallic is paired with diamonds (real or fake) or other crystals for that extra glamorous edge.

When it comes to gold, gems like rubies, sapphires, and emeralds are typically paired to create statement pieces of jewelry. This is a great way to dress up browns, creams or other more neutral colors. Older gold pieces, especially brooches, can have a vintage appeal and brighter gold jewelry can stand out on its own in the form of a simple cuff or a heavy pendant.

Rose gold or bronzes really warm up a look and I find that I wear those pieces more in the summer. These metallics look great paired with bright colors like teal, turquoise, yellow or white. They don't have to be chunky pieces. Delicate jewelry in rose gold or bronze can look pretty on their own.

No matter which metallic you pick, don't be afraid to mix and match. I don’t buy sets of jewelry normally, but when I do, I don’t wear the pieces together. It’s best to keep one metallic in the majority such as silver and then mixing in a few pieces of gold (think slim bangles) to change the look from being too matchy matchy.

Have fun with metallics; they can really perk up an outfit! How do you like to wear yours?
