It’s summer o’clock!

The Summer’s high and the Living is easy.  What jewelry to wear when the temperature is rising and the skirts are shortening?  We wear lighter clothing (if any) for the Summer and it can be tricky for pairing with accessories.

Try these AlphaLuxe tips using minimalism to strike a balance in the way you style your look.

Minimalist

Dainty chains and smaller gemstones allow for louder bright apparel.

Opt for clothes that are solid in colour instead of strong repetitive patterns.

Stacking

If going for understated clothing colours, make your jewels appear more apparent by stacking similar pieces together.  It brings more volume and adds syncopated motion instead of a single piece following your body movements. Here are pieces you can consider adding to your stacks.

It could also work at the Garden-Party where you can dazzle!  Complement a fluid dress in a floral print with a power stack on your wrists.

Bicycles, Mopeds and Yachts

Cool chicks ride cool chic. Elegance and comfort are the key matches. This season, high-waisted shorts create a dash of retro glamour and wear them with a simple linen white shirt.

For the jewellery, avoid everything that could hamper your moves: No sautoir nor long earrings.

Choose tiny Happy Diamonds earrings and a thin Happy Curves pendant.
