As a follow-up to our great conversation during the Style & Culture Fireside Chat with Delia Folk and Alison Bruhn of The Style That Binds Us, we've put together this Style Fyle filled with jewellery and apparel pairings for each of the key trends.
1. Pastels will be transformed into saturated pops of color. Watch this clip to learn more.
2. Shoulders will be getting lots of attention.
"The truth about shoulders is that they are the last place to age." Here's how you can combine Pareure Jewelry's Signature Large Trio Collar and Signature Oculus Ring with an off-the-shoulder top to show off those shoulders.
3. Cut-outs aren't just for pants anymore.
This is one way that you can amp things up for a dinner party or a date with a cut-out blouse, a chic ponytail tied low at the neck nape and Pareure Jewelry's Signature Kinetic Earrings and a Signature Multi-strand Toggle Bracelet draped over the back of your hand.
4. Denim & Knitwear is all about creating balance and finding your best look.
"Just as important as 'what would I wear it with' is 'how would it really look on me'." As mentioned in the clip, a great way to wear a body-con knit dress to work is with a belted cardigan or blazer over it and finishing the ensemble off with Pareure Jewelry's Signature Large Pendant Necklace and Signature Kinetic Earrings, peeking through your hair.
5. In addition to jewelry and apparel pairings evolving for the post-COVID work environment, so has our view on sustainability.
Sustainability has grown and evolved into 'considered consumption'. Currently, Pareure Jewelry uses certified recycled metals; and, we have plans to venture into Fair-trade metals. Additionally, we are in the process of are shifting our gemstone partnerships to focus on those partners who have the greatest transparency and with the ultimate goal of working only with those with complete transparency. Very soon, we'll be offering post-consumer recycled diamonds. This is all in addition to the environmentally friendly studio practices, the replacement of toxic chemicals with safer alternatives, where and when available. We'll continue to update you via the blog; however, should you have a need now, we are far enough along in the transition to work with you.
"[Jewelry & apparel] is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life."
