Summer is approaching fast

If you are planning to break away to the beach or just hang around the house, summer presents itself as the perfect opportunity to have some fun and upgrade some of your Jewellery.

As the trends change, so does the Jewellery and different seasons require different pieces. By understanding the latest seasonal trends, you can achieve the perfect look without any difficulty.

In this guide we will show you what to wear in different seasons, focusing on the up and coming summer season that awaits us. But before we discuss what to wear in certain seasons, we will kick things off by showing you how you can prepare for certain seasons.

The beauty of summer

The passing of a year is marked with the seasonal changes in the weather. Summer symbolizes growth and freedom. Summer means doing less, stressing less and as we head into the festive season, it means spending time with our loved ones.

If you are looking to brighten up your wardrobe with some new summer-inspired jewellery pieces, you’re at the right place. The latest summer trends are bound to put a smile on your face and uplift you. Playful earrings, bright colours, seashells and crystal stones are all on-trend right now.

These pieces are shaping up to centre around your stylish basics and leisurewear, all the more reason to breath some new life into your jewellery accessory collections which is bound to give every outfit an updated look and feel.

You are the focal point

When pairing jewellery with your summer outfits, keep in mind that your clothes and jewellery should never overshadow the focal point. Which is, of course, You! Yes, you want people to notice your trendy outfit and stunning jewellery, but you don’t want them to fixate on what you’ve got on.

So as you are shopping or pairing jewellery with your summer clothes remember to keep your body type into consideration. For instance, if you have a smaller body frame, you want to avoid oversized earrings that will make you look weighted down.

Instead, opt to go for lighter earrings that will compliment your outfit and your body type.

Match your Jewellery with context

While fashion trends have become ‘looser’ over the recent years, that does not mean that there aren’t any rules that apply when pairing your summer jewellery with your summer outfits.

If you’ve got events coming up like year-end functions or family functions, consider the context and tone of the event and pair your jewellery accordingly.

Another hugely overlooked factor when pairing summer jewellery is that it should match your skin tone. Instead, choose jewellery that brings out the natural hues of your skin tone. Luckily there’s a whole variety that you can choose from at Ickinger, so be sure to explore your options.

While there isn’t a right way or a wrong way to pair summer jewellery, matching darker skin tones with gold will go a long way in naturally highlighting your beauty. Someone with a fairer skin tone can opt to go with metals such as silver or rose gold for the best result.

Different seasons require different Jewellery

Winter or fall

Tip 1: In winter season diamonds are your best friend. They are very versatile and have the ability to enhance any outfit without great difficulty. We suggest investing in earrings or rings for the winter season. Because winter drives us to cover up as best we can to beat the icy weather, a diamond necklace might not be the best choice for this season.

Tip 2: Winter apparel leaves you unable to wear necklaces or bracelets however, rings, on the other hand, can be worn to showcase your bold personality. So if your rings are busy accumulating dust in your Jewellery box, now would be the time to dust them off and flaunt them to the world. Small rings will go unnoticed and won’t be visible under your winter apparel that’s why we suggest wearing bigger rings during the chilly months.

Tip 3: Wearing prominent earrings during winter will accentuate your facial features and transform you into an instant head-turner. Your best option would be to select larger ear studs or hoops that make your face the focal point. Ensure that you always have a variety of ear studs and hoops available to you during the winter months.

Tip 4: Invest in winter-inspired Jewellery pieces. Snow-flake designs tend to make the most awe-inspiring pieces during winter or fall. They are so versatile that you can wear them daily and the minimalistic snow-flake design makes for a cool-looking piece.

Tip 5: When it comes to metal choices for winter we suggest opting for platinum or sterling silver. So what are my options you ask? Well in order for you to make the best decision we will briefly discuss the benefits of both these metal choices available to you. Platinum is regarded as more luxurious therefor it is so much more expensive. Sterling silver, on the other hand, is much more versatile and readily available.

Combining your silver rings with your platinum ones will beautifully complement each other. Adding a diamond or two into the mix will ensure that you have the perfect winter Jewellery.

Tip 6: Last but not least. Our sixth and final tip to you would be to not overdo it. There needs to be a harmonious balance, by overdoing the number of rings you selected to wear you create a look that says you’re trying too hard.

To prevent yourself from falling into this trap we suggest picking out a signature ring and accentuating it with a few other rings. Just keep in mind that if you opt to wear a necklace don’t wear too many detailed rings and you’ll have the jaws dropping this season.

Summer or spring

As we are approaching summer and the festive season that lies ahead we thought it would be a great chance to highlight the Dos and Don’ts for summer or spring Jewellery. See our tips below:

Tip 1: Summer is all about bright colours such as yellow, red and orange. They immediately signify the presence of summer. However, those three colours aren’t the only ones to consider in summer. Blue and green also make great additions during the warmer months. Gemstones make a great addition to summer collections, rubies and sapphires are some of the most attractive stones you can wear during summer.

Tip 2: With the start of summer we start packing away the winter coats and turtle-necks. The skin you covered up can now be covered with spectacular Jewellery pieces. We suggest you layer your necklaces to show off your neckline so buying gold necklaces might not be a bad idea. The trick behind layering is to have multiple gold chains and necklaces in different sizes.

As long as they are similar in design and fall into the same category style-wise. For the best results, we suggest you layer 3 to 4 pieces with different lengths.

Tip 3:As the long sleeves go back into the cupboards, you can now wear multiple bracelets to beautify your arms. Wearing bracelets gives you two main approaches. The first one is to wear a signature bracelet in combination with a few supportive bracelets that complement the main one. The second approach you can follow is to wear a signature bracelet in combination with multiple rings of contrasting patterns. You can mix and match them as you please.

Tip 4: Play around with different styles during summer. You can try out different combos to develop your own unique personal style. We suggest you start experimenting with Jewellery that has completely different styles or opt to wear beaded Jewellery with gemstones to add more colour to your style. Just note that there are a ton of styles you can experiment with to develop your unique personal style this summer.

Tip 5: Summer presents itself as the perfect opportunity to showcase your natural side. We suggest wearing floral designs that embrace the spirit of the season. Summer and spring represent happiness, cheerfulness and creativity. The good news is that floral designs are available in a range of Jewellery such as rings, bracelets and pendants. Floral Jewellery will complement any women’s floral dresses this summer.
