Layers of Style

One of the big trends this season in both clothing and jewelry is layering. While our pieces are designed and handmade to stand alone, we have found many of them to be perfect for layering and achieving a really unique look. The possibilities are really endless as far as combinations you can put together, but here are a few looks we came up with. Mixing types of pearls below creates an elegant look in a fresh new way.Some of our new delicate bee pieces are perfect for this trend. You can bet this look below will get a lot of buzz!We love the combination of these different chains and different gold pieces for a more casual look.The tiny genuine turquoise beaded chain below would mix well with any of our gold necklaces. We love the dainty little cross with it and the teardrop earring to blend it all together. 

Layering isn’t just for jewelry! One of the major trends on the runways this season is layering clothing. Mixing patterns and textures is the goal. Below are a few runway examples we saw during fashion week.

But how does that translate to real life style? Well, fall is just getting underway and we are excited for the change in weather and wardrobe. As it gets colder I think we will see more of this trend on the streets- with people layering for warmth, but with a different twist. For example, wearing pants under a dress instead of tights creates a new and unexpected look.

Also layering different textures and patterns in the same color family is a really cool way to show off this look. Fashion icon Blake Lively pulls off this look to perfection below.But what about using this trend for a more classic look? The 3-layer look below is chic and practical for the fall and winter weather to come.Play around with prints, colors and unlikely combinations, while staying in line with your own personal style. That’s the real fun in following fashion trends- making it your own!

How do you wear your Susan Shaw Jewelry? No matter the answer, we hope you have fun with layering our pieces with your wardrobe this season!
