Adorning oneself in beautiful jewelry will never get old, but the way in which we do so is ever-changing. It was layers in the 70’s, oversized in the 80’s, and today, well, we like to mix things up a bit. Mixing and matching earrings has become quite the phenomenon. So much so, brands are catching on and designing asymmetrical pairs or curating entire collections that a that are meant to be strategically mismatched. At a time when everyone seems to be trying to contour their face to appear perfectly symmetrical, we are decorating ourselves in a way that counteracts this. Maybe it’s fashion’s rejection to our new obsession with a perfectly curated world? If so, I am 100% on board.
There are plenty of brands adopting asymmetric tendencies, but we chose to highlight the ones who have been leading the charge. Brands like Leigh Miller, Winden, Peet Dullaert, and All Blues are changing the game of fashion jewelry and bringing a more refined approach to contemporary price points. Elegance for all, I say!
The trick to asymmetry is keeping the rest simple. The jewelry is meant to take center stage. Let the structural details of each piece elevate your bone structure and move with you. Asymmetrical jewelry compliments well with sophisticated, streamlined silhouettes and a demure color or print. It feels thoughtful, yet effortless. And isn’t that the bulls eye of style? Just enough thought, and a little less effort.
