Beach Day Jewelry Guide
Summer is here, and whether the beach is down the street or a plane ride away, lazy days in the sand are quintessential to the season. Swimsuits, sunglasses, and totes are selected with care, but what about beach bling? Although tricky, navigating the world of seaside jewels becomes effortless with three simple rules: less is best, keep it basic, and safety first.
1) Less is Best
When a day of sand and sun awaits, the last thing you want to worry about is a broken clasp or lost bangle. Keep beach time stress free by keeping jewelry to a minimum. Fewer accessories will ensure that the day runs smoothly, but even beyond that, summer is the season of carefree simple living. Instead of a necklace and earrings, pick one of the two and polish off the outfit with a statement ring. After all, the key to flawless beach accessories is effortless sophistication.
2) Keep it Basic
Tap into the summer vibe by utilizing basic patterns and colors. Turquoise and royal blue are perfect hues for the beach because they are playful, bright and also utilize the natural landscape; you’ll look stunning in a pop of blue when standing next to the waves. In order to create a statement while still keeping it simple, match your jewelry to your shoes. Instead of matching swimsuit and bling, bring together the entire outfit with shoe and accessory matching. It’s an easy way to create the illusion of a complete outfit when embarking on a day at the beach.
3) Safety First
Keeping your jewels safe, preserved, and cared for should always be your first priority when planning your beach day look. Be sure to apply sunscreen and allow it to dry completely before securing accessories. This ensures that oils from the sunscreen won’t damage your jewelry. When it’s time to enter the water, remember to remove all jewelry. Although many metals are tarnish resistant, it’s always best to play it safe. Similarly, jewelry often goes missing in the water by falling off or breaking and is nearly impossible to find once lost to the sea. In fact, when your fingers are exposed to water for prolonged periods of time, they shrink. As a result, it’s easy for rings to slide off and get lost in the waves. To stay extra organized try stashing your jewels in a jewelry roll inside your beach bag. This will add an extra layer of protection and keep your jewelry from tangling or catching.
