There is something so captivating about those who seem to effortlessly pull off a statement or defining style. How do they do it? The secret is all in the accessories. You can turn a plain white tee and jeans combination into something head turning, as long as you know how to accessorize. But it’s not just about throwing on any old necklace and hoping for the best. There are some tips and tricks to learn first. One of those tricks is mixing materials.
Let’s kick off by saying, that even on its own, concrete accessories are going to turn heads. They’re just not something you see every day - and that, in itself, is pretty spectacular. Concrete jewelry is a real statement maker because it is such a unique thing. Combining something like this with any other material will create a defining style in itself. Just pairing a concrete necklace with a subtle outfit will scream rock chic - minimal effort required. This material doesn’t need to be big and bulky, however. Grounded concrete, set into a pretty pendant or cuff, has a certain kind of delicate side to it. You can mix this material with an almost preppy outfit, and still be able to pull off girly grunge.
There’s no denying that using leather is one of the easiest ways to create a statement style. However, usually, we opt for the safer accessories when it comes to this material. A leather belt or bag, for example. Stepping outside of your comfort zone and choosing something slightly more daring is the key to a defining style. It’s not every day you see leather earrings now, is it? Leather jewelry is an incredible way to mix materials and create a truly statement outfit. You can layer up leather cuffs with a floaty dress, for a bohemian dream look. How about a pair of leather feather earrings, to add a bit of rock glam to your evening look?
The key is to invest in a few statement pieces that you can play around with. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to turn a simple or plain outfit, into something eye-catching, with the right combination of mixed materials. Now you just need to find your personal style, combining the wonder of leather and concrete. The fashion world is your oyster!
