Tribal Trends

Traditions are what tie people together. A tradition is a shared experience that connects us to the human race. There is more to accessorizing than simply matching an outfit. Tribal fashions are on the rise, and it’s no wonder why. Decorating ourselves w

ith layered strands of beads, large wooden blocks and exaggerated dangling chains makes us feel connected to to tradition– to our ancestors. Those looks of years gone by have stood the test of time.  So we embrace them today and will carry them through to tomorrow.

Let’s explore a few of the elements that can give jewelry that tribal feel:

Materials

Dyed bone helps us feel grounded and in tune with our instincts. Oxidized silver, wood and shells help us feel closer to the Earth. All metals are precious and a gift of honor in ancient societies.

Symbols

Certain symbols of peace and hope are easily identified across many cultures. The Om is an example of one of these universal symbols.

Colors

Colors like black, white and silver are wonderfully offset by bright red. These are timeless color choices that have been used in tribal jewelry since the very beginnings of civilization, because these colors are commonly found in nature (in the form of ebony, seashell, metal and coral).

Whatever your style, whatever your reason for wearing the tribal trend, choose accessories that make you feel strong and proud!

5 simple rules for statement fashion!

The term “statement” is one of the most oft-heard (and maybe slightly overused) words in fashion, whether it’s via an email subject line that promises “10 Statement Necklaces To Fall In Love With” or coming out of your own mouth when talking to a friend about what to wear tomorrow night. “Statement piece” is todays buzzword for sure!

 What better way to do so than to complete your look with a bold, striking and attention-grabbing piece of statement jewellery?

Statement pieces are designed for you to have fun with, but can make all the wrong statements if they are not worn correctly.

Here are 5 simple rules to get the statement piece fashion right!

1. Less is more

Bold pieces should be allowed to stand out, so do not over-crowd your look by wearing them within close proximity of each other.

2. Keep it simple

Big accessories are best worn with simple clothes. Steer clear of busy patterns and embellishments such as sequins when wearing bold jewelry.

3. Choose earrings wisely

When wearing dangly statement earrings, it is better to keep your hair sleek and not too big. Also make sure that your make-up balances well with your earrings. If you are wearing a brightly coloured pair, they may look best with clean and simple makeup.

4. Adorn your arms tastefully

Cuff bracelets are an excellent choice if you want to wear a statement piece. To show yours off, keep your arms bare or wear a cuff over a slim-fitting one colour long sleeve top. Stick to one cuff to create a focal point.

5. Wear pieces that create an outfit

Remember that statement pieces are supposed to make – you guessed it – a statement, so choose pieces that help to create an over-all outfit. If you are going for a prim and polished look, opt for pearls . Vintage or floral pieces will look beautiful with a romantic and feminine outfit, while colourful beads are a must if you are going for a boho look.

TREND ALERT: STATEMENT EARRINGS

So you’re not into the whole ear cuff trend, but you want something more dramatic than diamond studs in your ears as you walk down the street/red carpet/aisle? ENTER STATEMENT EARRINGS.

Set aside all those statement necklaces you’ve been hoarding and get excited for this new accessory to look out for. They’ve been all over the Spring 2015 runways.They add just the right amount of drama to an outfit. And if you’re having a particularly bad hair day, tie your hair up into a bun, don a pair of statement earrings and watch how no one notices your crazy mane.

In this post we are going to help you realize the importance of a pair of statement earrings in your treasure box by showing you different ways to pair them up.

  • STREET STYLE:Wear your statement earrings with a minimalist look. Pair a basic blazer, ripped jeans, an envelope clutch, and sleek heels to add a level of sophistication. Remember it is always best to keep the rest of your outfit simple when you are wearing a statement piece.And if you feel that the high end 4statement pieces aren’t for you then this is a jewelry trend the highstreet does particularly well using plastic, crystal or glass alternatives that look equally as elegant and on trend.
  • 1WEDDING STYLE :A sparkly pair is a more traditional way to make a statement.When wearing dangly statement earrings, it is better to keep your hair sleek and not too big. Remember, it’s all about balance, so while you can pump up the volume with simple earrings, larger ones will balance better with loose waves or poker-straight hair.
  • WORK STYLE:The easiest way to nail the ‘Office look’ with statement earrings would be to ‘Keep it simple’.Pair a very contemporary(preferably geometric cut) statement earring with any casual work attire and refrain from wearing any other piece of jewellery to be a hit!2
  • NIGHT OUT :A Little Black Dress (LBD) is one of the most versatile and stylish pieces a woman can own.They also act as the best canvas to try out bold jewelry.So, pick a big and bold pair. Dangly, Hoops, or Studs can all work, as long as they make a statement. This is not the time for anything dainty, and remember to wear your hair up to make the earrings known.

So, now you ladies are well equipped and know how to get out and be your own ‘SHINING ARMOUR’!

     Must have pieces for parties!

Do you love parties, but you’re not really sure how to dress up for one? What if you are shy and just want to make a good first impression? Not to worry –we are here to your rescue!
Buying and owning jewelry is one of the best perks of being a girl, so it’s our accessory-loving duty to tell you what sparkly essentials you need in your jewelry box. And while we encourage you to indulge in any jewel trend of the moment, we’ve made a list of the top 10 pieces of jewelry every woman should own to stun at a party:

  • hMUST HAVE #1 –  Long earrings

 Mostly reserved for evenings or events, these will again make a statement and finish your look, and make your face pop.

  • MUST HAVE #2 –A Menswear-Inspired Watchw1
    Besides keeping you punctual, a great menswear-inspired watch is the perfect way to ground your girly jewelry.Invest in one that looks like it could be shared with either your boyfriend or even your grandpa, with a slightly bigger face and either a metallic or leather strap.
  • MUST HAVE #3 – A Strand Of Pearls
    We love how this never-out-of-style piece can top off a ladylike look and make it feel exquisitely sophisticated and classic. Worn with a simple black dress, a strand of pearls is always a sweet choice. It should work on its own and be neither too short nor too long. Think: Breakfast at Tiffany’s!
  • MUST HAVE #4 – Large Metallic Hoops
    Sometimes, a simple hoop can add just the right amount of interest to your look, particularly when your hair is pulled off your face. A thinner hoop that is larger than a silver dollar manages to feel both festive and feminine.
  • MUST HAVE #5 – Diamond studs

        Marilyn Monroe declared with a lot of conviction “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. We couldn’t agree more. Diamond         studs are expensive but they are totally worth the investment you are making. On days when you aren’t really sure               what to wear, you’ll find diamond earrings are almost always appropriate.

  • MUST HAVE #6 – The Cuff Bracelet

          Add sizzle to your wrist year-round with a sleek cuff bracelet. Wear a cuff (or two) to feel like the superhero you are.             We especially love them paired with something sleek—like a longer sheath dress or even a pencil skirt and corset                look.

  • pMUST HAVE #7 – A Right-Hand Ring
    Since your left hand is reserved for more serious jewelry (like wedding bands or grandma’s old ruby ring), think of your right hand as a place to play. Go for something that is stackable,colorful, or oversized, and that can ideally be worn on your pointer or middle finger for impact.
  • MUST HAVE #8 – Something Rock ‘n’ Roll
    Rock ‘n’ rollers have long since defined our love of studs,chains, spikes, and tough symbols. Use a piece you love, like pyramid stud earrings or a leather cuff, to offset the sweetness of a feminine floral dress or add an unexpected touch to a more conservative suit.
  • MUST HAVE #9 – Gold and Silver Studss
    While you wont be making any huge fashion statements with a simple stud, they are essential to finish a look. We love a domed ball for versatility but like a pyramid stud, bar, or shape, like a heart or star, too. These little metallic must-haves are best worn when either your necklace or bracelets are making the statement.
  • MUST HAVE #10 – A Locket
    A vintage-inspired locket can provide character and interest to almost any outfit. We love it thrown on with a casual tee and jeans, but this old-fashioned treasure will also make a modern dress look even cooler.

While a jewelry box brimming with beautiful baubles is nice, chances are you won’t even wear most of the pieces in there —if you can even remember that you have them.So now ladies, you have your very own personalised list of must-haves to get that party started!Go on and shine like a star!

Beading it out!

nBeaded jewelry by in itself, is a very unique facet to the world of jewels and ornaments. Unlike conventional jewelry who’s value is largely derived from the type of stones or material used, the value of beaded jewelry comes from their design and the creative worth of the designer making them.

A Beaded jewel designer makes use of simple stringing, wire wrapping and stitching techniques to create wearable works of art that are limited only by their own expansive imagination, with the created pieces being very reflective of key trends and styles in the ever changing world of fashion and design.

Although designers do their best in not gravitating towards a certain colour or design palette and branch out, the character and vibes of their creations would unmistakably be their own.

5 WAYS TO LOOK EFFORTLESSLY STYLISH IN BEADS:

 

  • jKEEP IT SIMPLE:A simple string of light-colored beads (think light pink, ivory, or opaque) can contribute an understated classiness. Jacqueline Kennedy’s timeless pearls come to mind. Even without the white gloves, you can achieve the same Classic look with a quick clasp of faux pearls.
  • COLOR IS GOOD:A bright pop of color around one’s neck shouts happy. They don’t necessarily have to “match” the outfit you’re wearing, but they do have to “blend.” In other words, A peach wrap for example, looks even more summeresque when paired with faux jade beads.
  • mGET LOOPY:The potential for versatility abounds. Try pairing a strand of thin beads with thick. Consider braving several loops or going with one long rope. A simple shirt turns into an outfit with the right pairing of beads.
  • IN COLOR:One of the best aspects of bead jewelry is the amazing range of colors. Beads made of plastic, glass, wood, and crystal can be found in all your favorite hues. Gemstone bead necklaces incorporate authentic gems in a rainbow of colors. Wear bright blue, pink, and yellow beaded necklaces in the spring, or brighten a winter day with emerald and sapphire bead jewelry. Shiny metal beads make for contemporary beaded necklaces. Wear metal beaded jewelry with skinny jeans and silk shirts.
  • SIZE MATTERS:Bead size is an important consideration when shopping for beaded necklaces. Large beads make for a dramatic piece of jewelry, while small beads are very delicate and feminine. Keep other jewelry to a minimum when wearing beaded necklaces with large beads in order to avoid looking weighed down.

So, all you ladies bead it out the right way!
