I love creating new style and adding different pieces to my wardrobe. I have come a long way in the past few years and love to express my style in different ways.
Recently, I have been expanding my accessories, they are an amazing way to express yourself and add the perfect touch to any outfit.
To find out the latest hot style winter accessory trends, I spoke with Diana Mazzuca, Communications Manager, Swarovski Canada. Diana shared the hottest trends for accessories.
What are the top trends for accessories this winter?
One of the biggest hot style winter accessory trends is the stacking trend, you can wear bangles to create a whirl of color, or worn individually to add a touch of sparkle to any outfit.
Which colours are popular?
Shimmering shades of gold and silver along with touches of black, grey and violet hue are the dominant colors for the season ahead. Mixed metals are also such a big trend. It’s something that is becoming more prominent.
Are there any new looks out this season?
My preference this season is to go for a sophisticated style; pair a delicate necklace with rings on many fingers or midi rings (ring party). Worn for a day out in the city or an elegant evening out, the ring is easily adapted to suit any event.
If you were going to start with one new look this holidays what would it be?
Try pairing a watch with bangles or Stardust bracelets. Use a watch as more of a fashionable accessory rather than being just a functional piece. This classic piece can easily be worn at the office, for dinner, for cocktails, and everyday style, perfect both with jeans or a glittery party dress!
How are people wearing accessories now?
This is an era of self-expression, everything is possible. Don’t be afraid to mix your metals along within different types of jewellery – for example a statement piece into your everyday look. Be yourself, and try to pick the right jewels and accessories to enhance your personality.
Which accessories are on trend for men?
Leather bracelets and silver pendants can be added as trendy accents to classic men’s blazers or shirts for a sophisticated and contemporary look. Have fun and mix pieces of similar colours or materials in mind.
How to care for your accessories?
Store your jewelry in the original packaging or a soft pouch to avoid scratches and polish your jewelry frequently with a soft cloth to maintain its original, lustrous finish.
Also, be sure to remove jewellery before washing hands, swimming, and/or applying products (e.g., perfume, hairspray, soap, or lotion), as this could harm the metal and reduce the life of the plating, as well as cause discoloration and loss of crystal brilliance.
I am going to use these new jewellery trends for the holidays and winter season, as I continue to expand my style ideas!
Your suggestions are always welcome, as I continue on my journey to live life to the fullest. Let’s have the very best holidays for 2015!
