5 Tips on Choosing Winter Outfit Jewelry for Beginners
With winter’s chill comes heavy layers—which can make your favorite pieces of jewelry seem a little impractical.
After all, you think, bundling up means barely any skin exposed. There’s no point in putting on rings when your fingers will be covered with gloves. And the edges of your necklaces cause fabric snags with your precious cashmere sweaters.
Fortunately, there are a few simple tricks to finding the perfect winter outfit jewelry, no matter your style. Here’s how to display your bijouterie in the coldest months of the year.
1. Let It All Hang Out
Just because your ears are covered doesn’t mean your earrings need to be! Try a pair of dangling earrings under your winter hat to effortlessly jazz up a look, as long as you don’t forget to match it with your scarf as well.
Whether you like modern and bold earrings or options with more subtle and romantic details, a little bit of wind can make them look dashing. One caveat to keep in mind: in the worst of windy weather, save your earlobes with studs instead!
2. Add Some Silvery Shine
If you’ve considered buying jewelry online this winter, you’ve probably noticed the uptick in beautiful silvery pieces. Maybe it’s something about the hint of snow or the chilly weather, but silver is always in during the winter months!
You can choose substantial silver pieces to play up the drama of an outfit, or opt for delicate chains like the ones from Dreamland Jewelry. Add a sparkling pendant for a bit of shimmer, and you’re good to go!
3. Stop the Show
Did you know that Sri Lankan brides traditionally wear armbands to ward off bad luck? In the depths of winter, you should do the same—with a show-stopping cuff bracelet to add some flair to your look!
In general, winter is a good time to go big, as larger pieces are less likely to blow around in the wind like delicate pieces will. In addition, thinner bracelets may be drowned by chunky sweaters and oversized jackets.
Don’t forget to pick a cuff bracelet that allows you to adjust the size.
4. Add a Little Length
Longer necklaces look great in addition to your winter collection of turtlenecks, mock necks, and sweaters. When considering the length of necklaces, 18 inches or longer will do the trick. You can layer up for subtle, shimmering accents to a look or opt for heavier pieces to play well with heavier winter shirts and pants.
Make sure to pick smooth, flat necklaces to avoid fabric snags and save your favorite cardigans!
5. Play Peekaboo
It may be cold outside, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find stunning ways to display your ring collection! Even if you have a minimal winter outfit budget, consider springing for a pair of stylish fingerless gloves or flip-top mitten gloves to show off your rings.
The latter can keep your fingers warm outside while letting you pull back the fabric for a hint of style once you’re indoors.
