Partly because it's summer partly because of my perpetual time crunch, I fall into a uniform of sorts during the warm weather: midi or maxi skirts of various ilks paired with a basic casual tee knotted at my waist. I vary it with different textures (crisp poplin, flowy satin, earthy denim, whisper-light tulle), different color combos (I make it a point to try out eclectic, fun pairings and to avoid black as much as possible, unless I'm especially in the mood for it!) and various jewels. When you go the "uniform" route, its subtle variations that keep the aesthetic feeling fresh. My latest fascination has been mixing glam baubles with boho ones. It's unexpected, almost a little disjointed, but it works perfectly with the high-low vibe of a semi-formal skirt and super-casual tee. A sparkle-heavy collar gets just the right amount of muting when paired with an earthy stone pendant. A crystal statement piece gets a rebellious, free-spirited kick from a simple knotted cord or tassel piece. Delicate, personally meaningful short necklaces turn softly quixotic when matched with glittering station chains. Long, outfit-making pendants get an offbeat, nature-tinged spin when combined with a fabric choker or a shell set on a satin cord. Complete the look with casual heels that reiterate the high-low balance: of-the-moment mules, classic espadrilles or cork sandals. I hope this inspires you to mix baubles of divergent genres in one of your looks sometime soon! Happy styling, loves!
