We're not sure when this rule was established, but it was made to be broken. We are living in a time where fashion and style are so limitless and mixing the two metals is ultra chic.
You wouldn’t think chocolate and sea salt, or prosciutto and melon would be tasty together and yet they’re delicious. The same is true of metallic tones; the warmth of gold and the coolness of silver can play off each other in surprisingly pleasing ways. If this isn't something you're used to or comfortable with, let us guide you in walking the fine line between fashionable and cringe-worthy.
Ensure you're mixing the same styles
This is where mistakes are made! Mixing colours won't trip your look up, but mixing styles will, so you can't just throw any old thing on. Your mix still needs to appear purposeful and stylish - for example, layered delicate necklaces are the perfect start!
Do the accessories complement your clothing?
The first thing you need to consider is if it is the appropriate type of jewellery for your outfit and for the occasion. Is it a summer dress for lunch with the girls or are you accessorising an elegant evening dress? A day time look can afford a trendier and more random style, however a special evening look will take a more sophisticated twist.
Take it to the next level
Don't be shy, add another colour to the equation that will complement the two shades. For example, layer in a rose gold necklace or ring to an already existing yellow gold and silver combination.
The most important thing to remember is to have fun with it, if you think it works, it most definitely does. Confidence is the key to rocking trends!
