With the first day of Summer officially behind us - and gorgeous weather on the way - our thoughts have turned to vacation travels both near and far. If you’re reading this blog, then likely you are a person who appreciates jewelry and has a fair amount in your closet (check out this piece on organizing that collection!). With all your beautiful designs and all these wonderful trips upcoming, the big question becomes how do you reconcile the two?
As you may know, we love to travel and Saskia LOVES jewelry. Last week we sat down and came up with some helpful tips and a very special collection designed with the traveller in mind.
We know that you want to bring the whole closet, but that never works we well as you think. The more you have, the less you wear, and it’s always better to use your imagination in creating different looks. Saskia always packs two small pouches - one for earrings and delicate chains, one for larger beaded pieces.
Why bring two pieces when one will do? Think about your wardrobe and then think of what necklace best accents the majority of it - put out what clothes you plan on bringing and them look what necklace best matches more than one outfit. A few of our go-to’s are the strikingly simple Single Ladies, the delicate and interesting Classic SdV and the too-cool-for-school Biker Babe. Each is light, pairs with different colors and makes its own unique statement.
Big chunky pieces make up the core of our line, but are not often the best on the go. Rather than rely on large stones, often layering multiple pieces creates a similarly bold effect, without the weight. The Funky PK and Yukiko are both long necklaces that can be worn in a variety of ways. Wrap them up, mix them together or wear as bracelets - each way provides a different look. You can always throw in the Lagoon or Sueño for some color or add the Confetti earrings or an African Amber bracelet to complete your vibe.
We’ve mentioned the pieces we love, but you surely have your own. Everyone has their own style, and we always encourage you to express yourself. Be bold! Be brave! Have a great trip and snap a pic of your favorite outfit while abroad and send It to us for a chance to be on our social media!
