Mixing metals used to be a fashion faux-pas but fear no longer! If done right the look can be stylish, chic and really fashion forward. I personally mix metals all the time, more is more, silver, gold, gems? I love it all, and all at once! But getting started with mixing metals can be intimidating, especially if you've never done it before. I hear so many people tell me how they would love to wear silver or gold but they're afraid to mix metals, or simply don't know how. I am here to put that fear behind you, its as easy as just doing it, and once you've styled your mixed jewelry look a few times it will become second nature!
One tip to making your look come together effortlessly and chic instead of jumbled is working in groups. When mixing metals I never wear less than 4-5 pieces, this is important because you need to tell a story that looks intentional rather than random.
Another great tip with getting started in mixing metals is to make sure your backdrop stays fairly neutral... A simple un-patterned look is a great way to get your feet wet in wearing silvers & golds together. With a neutral look, the jewelry becomes the focal point and isn't fighting for attention from a busy pattern.
Finally, more is more, the more you mix the more comfortable you get with it! An easy rule I personally follow when mixing metals, is to add two more pieces than you would normally wear if you were styling a single metal! This goes back to it looking intentional, because it is!
