Today I’m sharing my go to minimal jewelry capsule for the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. I’ve learned over time (or more so- after babies!) that I prefer my jewelry options to be streamlined, delicate and subtle. That way, it doesn’t catch their eye to tug at like a statement piece would. Plus, these items are such a classic choice that never overwhelms an outfit. Don’t get me wrong, I do love a good statement necklace or earring– but I save those for date nights or mom’s night out type things.
Here are my current favorites:
Depending on my outfit, I throw on a necklace (or two!). My everyday is usually this gold bar necklace. It can be worn at two lengths, and is a great finishing touch to any outfit- even if it’s just a t-shirt and shorts.
I also love my letter pendant necklace. It’s sentimental, beautiful, and my boys love when I wear it since it’s the letter of their name. And it shows up a little better against crewneck sweaters and tees.
My other go to is a gemstone diamond bezel necklace. I love the rose gold color. Super delicate way to complete an outfit!
In terms of earrings, I’ve always preferred basic studs. I have diamond stud earrings my parents gave me on my wedding day, and when I want a statement earring without a dangle to it, I reach for these crystal trio earrings. For more everyday earrings, these gold and silver hexagon earrings are a fun modern option. In general, earrings with gold and silver like these or these are nice to combine the two tones and incorporate other pieces like necklaces that are just gold or just silver.
These pieces are definitely my most worn these days, and an essential part of my wardrobe. It really adds a touch of style to an otherwise plain outfit. My capsule jewelry collection works much the same as a capsule wardrobe: a collection of practical, personalized jewelry pieces that allows options for any occasion.
What are your go to jewelry items?
