How to Style Your Vintage Jewelry This Spring, Martinsburg, West Virginia

From the bright sun to blooming flowers, springtime is a season for refreshment. That sense of renewal isn’t just limited to the natural environment — it can also be applied to your style. If you’re donning new fashions this spring, add a breath of fresh air to your outfit by showing off vintage jewelry in a contemporary way. To help you excel at accessorizing, here are a few springtime styling tips perfect for pieces from the past.

Spring Styling Tips for Vintage Jewelry

Pop With Color & Contrast

While some gold and silver pieces are elegant, they can fall flat against the wide spectrum of colors spring style is known for. To make sure your jewelry stands out, try layering several bracelets or necklaces, including a few that feature bold colors and distinct textures. This contrast will help your accessories spring forth in a fun and balanced fashion.

Put a Pin in It

But if you want to hold onto some length and still enjoy some comfort, opt for an up-do secured into place with a vintage hairpin. In addition to offering an elevated alternative to the standard style, this look will keep the hair off your neck and allow you to stay cool.

Let the Time Period Be Your Guide

Vintage jewelry comes in all sorts of shapes and sizes, making it difficult to figure out what clothing to pair it with. The easiest solution is to stick to apparel that reflects the period your jewelry is from. For example, a mid-century modern choker pairs nicely with a ‘60s-inspired shirt dress that’s perfect for a springtime Sunday brunch.

Mix Up Your Motif

Many examples of spring imagery — such as flowers, birds, and butterflies — are common designs for vintage brooches. If you have a collection of brooches, mix a few similarly-styled motifs together on your lapel as a fanciful way to celebrate the season.
