Sterling silver is a great choice for jewellery lovers – it’s more affordable than other precious metals, won’t tarnish and can last a lifetime if looked after properly. Its beautiful shiny hue also means that it goes with just about anything, and can elevate either a casual daytime look or a more dressed-up evening look.
From simple silver hoops that can bring brightness and contemporary style to the face, to beautiful silver pendants that can bring a vintage style to your look that will pair well with your favourite blouse or dress, silver is a versatile choice for jewellery and can be styled and worn in many different gorgeous ways.
For casual: Laid back and relaxed fashion
Silver is one of the most popular precious metals, and for good reason. Sterling Silver Permanent Jewelry can be worn while swimming or in the shower, and is a durable and relatively affordable option when shopping for accessories. This makes it a great choice when buying staple pieces, as they can be worn again and again without discolouring or tarnishing.
Silver jewellery is a great way to add a little bit of class and delicacy to a casual look. Pair a simple white t-shirt with jeans and footwear of your choice, be it sandals, sneakers or boots, and add a touch of silver jewellery to dress up your look. A large, thin silver hoop will highlight your face while layering a few silver necklaces of different lengths can create a bohemian, on-trend look. Stacking up silver rings is very on trend right now and can complement your nail colour, or add something extra to natural nails. No matter what popular fashion trends you are following, no casual look is ever really complete without some jewellery pieces.
For the office: Properly styling your business attire
Many of us want to make an effort for work but aren’t really sure what is too much. Sometimes it can be useful to look up business casual attire tips to learn how best to dress for the office – particularly what to wear and what not to wear. As we usually wear a buttoned-up shirt or blouse with some sort of neck detail for office work, we’d stay away from statement necklaces or pendants for work, as this will mean too much going on around the neckline. Opt for a small, delicate chain instead, or go for a bracelet or chunky bangle to elevate your look – plus, you can admire it while you’re hard at work on your computer.
Another great option for office jewellery is a delicate silver earring – perhaps a stud, either simple sterling silver in a geometric or natural shape or featuring a semi-precious stone. As we often wear our hair up at work, this is a nice little way to express some personality through our jewellery.
For special occasions: celebrations and formal wear
Whether it be a birthday party, christening, wedding or party, we all like to dress up and feel our best on a special occasion, and jewellery can put the finishing touches on our best looks. Jewellery is an opportunity to express yourself, so if you’re more of a reserved, classic type then opt for simple, delicate pieces. If you’re bold and confident, go for chunkier chains, thick bangles and modern designs. Silver by Mail have some beautiful sterling silver jewellery sets which can be paired with formal wear and can effortlessly help complete the look.
Silver looks great over almost any colour, particularly neutral shades like black and white. It also goes great with brights and pastel hues and can be layered or worn simply on its own. If wearing something slightly lower cut, we’d suggest going for a necklace or pendant that can sit in that empty space on the chest, accentuating your features and ensuring no part of your look feels ’empty.’
If you’re planning on wearing your hair up for the occasion, then you can have as much fun as you like with your earrings – the world is your oyster! However, if your hair is down and you wear it over your shoulders, then you might want to opt for a simpler or shorter style, anything else will be hidden away in your hair and could look confusing.
However you wear your silver jewellery – wear it with confidence, and let your style come from you.
