Winter is a time to enjoy your comfy sweaters, warm turtlenecks, and lots of accessories like hats, gloves, and scarves. But with all of these bulky items, how do you wear your jewelry and keep it safe from snagging your clothes or getting lost?
Styles for Cold Weather
It’s possible to still wear and enjoy your favorite jewelry during the winter months. And this doesn’t mean you should only be wearing snowflake-shaped pendants. A few precautions can go a long way to ensure that your jewelry stays where it should.
- Think big instead
of stacked: Stacked
rings are fun to wear in the summer months, but in cold weather, one could
easily come off with a glove. Instead, choose bigger, chunkier rings that are
less easy to lose. Plus a big, colored gemstone can be a fun pop of color with
a dark, winter wardrobe.
- Perfect pearls: Pearls are great
for any winter event. They look good with dark colors and are smooth so they
won’t get caught on any winter clothing. Pearls are appropriate for any upscale
setting or holiday party.
- Look for a nice
Stud earrings are a perfect go-to in winter as they won’t get caught in
scarves, hats or even turtlenecks. With so many fun and daring studs, you are
sure to find something that will fit your unique style.
- Think long instead
Layered chains can’t compete with layers of sweaters or cardigans in the
winter, so it’s better to opt for one larger, elongated necklace to accentuate
- It’s a wrap: If you don’t want
to lose a delicate bracelet when taking off your heavy outerwear, choose a
wrapped bracelet instead. It gives the look of several stacked bracelets but
without the hassle and in one easy piece that is harder to lose.
- Embrace color: The delicate pink
hue of rose gold goes well with so many winter colors such as ivory, black,
navy or charcoal. It’s also a good time of year to take advantage of holiday
colors and choose gemstones that are red, green, or blue. These bold choices
make great complements to dark winter apparel.
- The adjustable advantage: Pieces that fit in the summer can become loose in the cold winter months when fingers may shrink. Consider an adjustable item – such as a bracelet with multiple closures – and don’t let anything slip off your wrist or finger because of the cold air.
Don’t Hide Your Sparkle
Just because you have to bundle up to head outside doesn’t mean you can’t rock a stunning piece of jewelry.
