What's Trending This Week: Mixed Metals

Whoever decided to make mixed metals a trend is pretty much my favorite person in the fashion business right now. I love that I don't have to worry about whether my bracelets match the buckles on my shoes and the buttons on my shirt and the hardware on my handbag. This week's feature item, the  Geometric Cut Out Pendant incorporates the mixed metal trend and I am reaching for it a lot lately:

Here's a front view of the previous outfit, along with several other outfits I've worn with this necklace:

FOUR: Jacket: LOFT / Tee: Old NavyJeans: Express / Shoes: Sole Society

I have to give "credit" to @erinerinhartman on Instagram for getting me to purchase this necklace, and luckily she has given me plenty of outfit ideas for it too:

Two more of my friends have purchased this recently, and I love seeing them put it to good use too:

And last but not least, I promised Kristen that if she got this necklace she would not regret it, and I think the fact that she included it in several outfits of her European packing plan outfits would indicate that I'm right, right? 

It doesn't seem like there are many trends that make life easier, but this one does because it goes with everything. If you only have room in the budget for one necklace this spring and summer, this one gets my vote!

  3. I love that necklace! I got one a few months ago from Madewell (this one: https://www.madewell.com/madewell_category/JEWELRY/necklaces/PRDOVR~C3707/C3707.jsp) and I wear it with absolutely everything. I love necklaces like that! No thinking necessary :)

  4. That is a lovely necklace! Nice to see some of the different ways you and others have worn it :)

  7. you were right!! and you are very dangerous to my bank account. hahaha. i do love the mixed metal though, so fun. i always worried about which metal looked good on me, and this takes the worry out ;)

    1. Well, in my defense, you know I have talked you out of a few purchases, too. So I'm not all bad!

  8. I love mixing metals together! That necklace goes with so much!

  9. I've been tempted by it too! The last time I was in express, one was hanging on a mannequin and it looked so cute. I'm loving simple pendants and little dainty necklaces. I think I'm over statement necklaces until fall. Summer is for simplicity:)

  10. Loving that necklace - you can really wear it with everything!!


  11. I love the navy white and grey look! Such a chic and classic combination!

  12. I am a huge fan of mixed metal and have been most of my life. I even asked my husband for a watch with both so I could wear with gold or silver. Express does have really great jewelry.

  13. Love the mixed metals. I just ordered a MK two tone watch (as part of their price-matching deal) and they sent me the wrong one (white leather) - oops! Hopefully, the right one will come soon because I can't wait to wear it - my gold one has seen better days.

  15. Love the necklace and will be adding it on my list to get. Such a shame, I just visited Express last week.

  16. I agree that mixed metals are so much easier for dressing than sticking with one metal. Love that necklace on you!


    Hope to see you Thursday for TBT Fashion link up.

  17. I loveeee mixed metals! I have been doing it with my bracelets lately and I have become quite partial to mixing them! I love how you showed mixed metals with so many different looks. You are so darn good with variety! Can't wait to see more!

  18. Yay it's the necklace that I love! And worn in so many different ways, I love it the most with the black skirt and olive tee as well as the blue cami! Gorge!


  19. I've been suuuuuuper into gold hardware + jewelry for ages now, but I'm loving the mixed metal trend because it allows me to show the silver pieces a little love. :)

    Happy almost-weekend, lady!

  20. I love mixing metals too and most of the time my jewelry is mixes of gold and silver with a little bit more gold, cause I like gold a bit more. These are all great looks, I especially love the first outfit with the white cardigan.
