BROOKLYN STYLE: Bohemian & Minimalism

{ GUEST BLOGGER } Micaela Armstrong

If you're anything like me, you like to switch things up in the wardrobe department. However, instead of going out and buying a new outfit, it's super easy to add variety by simply changing how you accessorize. Today, I'm going to highlight an example of how to achieve two different styles simply by altering the accessories you add.

For our first outfit, let's go Boho! The Bohemian look is characterized by more earthy, nature inspired, yet chic pieces. I chose to include a pair of our gold Shaye earrings, our Monica labradorite necklace, and our Cosmo necklace - also in gold. The Shaye earrings are a great example of the boho-chic style, and the Monica and Cosmo necklaces with their contrast of delicate gold and natural stones are a dynamic combination that reflect a modern, down-to-earth design. Also from Brooklyn Designs, I included our Skye Rhodonite and Lennox stretch bracelets. I love wearing these! I find them so easy to pair with practically anything in my closet - they're so easy to throw on and they completely revamp my look. Cap off your outfit with a Plume handbag and Casalnuoyo ankle boots from Aldo and you're good to go!

To contrast with the earth tones and gemstones that characterize the bohemian look, I've compiled a number of accessories for a more minimalistic approach. Let's do away with the colours for a moment and focus on simplicity - in this case mostly silver and black. It's easy to achieve a striking look without overdoing it. Layering necklaces can be light and simple with our sterling silver Bobbi and Casey necklaces. Add our adorable Wish studs and our elegant Wishbone bracelet and you have a classic polished outfit! Supplement your look by adding a Clontarf handbag and Prestento boots from Aldo.

If you're starting with a simple base outfit, altering your style can really just be a matter of changing how you accessorize.
