Lets Talk Jewelry Styling

When talking accessories I often refer to handbags, belts & shoes. Another great way to elevate ones wardrobe is by accessorizing with jewelry. You don’t need to break the bank to do this and you definitely don’t need a lot of options either, you want to make sure you have the perfect pieces that tie into your current wardrobe / style that can be worn regularly.

I’ve put together some style tips below as well as some images for a visual on how jewelry can come together.  Tap the images to see some of my favorite jewelry brands to shop. If jewelry is something you want to start investing in and add to your wardrobe but you don’t know where to start, reach out! Mabelle Style can put together a curated assortment of pieces that will work best for your personal Style.


The basics, if you’re just starting out building a jewelry collection the two earrings I’d suggest adding into the mix are a simple mid size hoop and a classic diamond stud. I would also suggest doing the real deal with these two styles, getting the best quality, as you’ll have them forever. If you want to elevate these classics, I’d suggest a stack, playing with hoops, studs & huggies.

If you like to update your jewelry and add some trends each season, there is some fun styles this Spring! Tear Drop is one of my favorite styles, as well as tubular hoops & bolder shapes.


Starting off with the classic again, a pendant necklace with something sentimental is a must, this style can stay on with any outfit as an everyday piece. Ready to step-up that pendant style? Begin layering your chains, there is no magic number, you can catch me with up to five necklaces on at a time! But that may not be for everyone. The first step is having a shorter length with one style (herringbone is a great option) then add a secondary style that’s a bit longer. When I say longer, I don’t mean down to the chest (if you still have the long, big charmed necklaces, time to donate) you want the secondary chain to be 18-20″ range. Two chains is the magic number for elevating an outfit while keeping the look effortless. If you’d like to have a bit more fun, add in a sparkly tennis necklace as a 3rd option or chunky curb chain. There is a lot of room to play with this category and mix and match.


Adding a ring(s) can be a little detail that works with the most casual looks, dressy event looks and any style in between. An easy addition to your jewelry box, adding a ring for the index finger, a signet pinky ring or a right hand stack on your ring finger. Or you can get really wild & add a few rings on multiple fingers which can include colored stones & mixed metals.  See some fun examples below.


When styling bracelets you must always stack at least two, then grow your stack from there. There is so many fun ways to build a stack as well, from rope bracelets, to solid metals & colourful stones, it really depends on what’s best suited to your personal style. Start with a classic simple thin chain in your favorite choice of metal and then build on that.
