Get in on the Minimalist Jewelry Trend on a Budget

For those of you with smaller hands and daintier features the ‘minimalist’ jewelry trend is probably just your go-to style when jewelry shopping because it’s what fits you best. But for the rest of us who have been into the big statement necklaces, earrings and bracelets for some time, the minimalist trend is a new way to look at accessorizing. The funny thing is, the smaller and more ‘minimal’ the jewelry pieces, sometimes the more expensive they are. This is often because these pieces are made of higher quality metals and stones vs the bigger pieces which are usually all costume jewelry made of fashion stones and lower quality metals.

So when shopping this new trend on a budget here are a few resources to find great pieces for less.

minimalist jewelryOne tip is to start here at AssuredAllure.com where we offer a mix of minimalist and classic pieces to suit any style seeker. This popular Brushed Lariat Necklace fits the minimalist trend to a T but only costs a minimal $29.99.

Another good place to hunt for deals is through other popular fashion and jewelry blogs like the The Little Magpie and Kenzas who scour fast-fashion retailers like Zara, H&M and Forever 21 and even high-end department stores like Bloomingdales and Barneys.

For more ‘minimalist’ jewelry and accessory ideas check out this post, 13 Elegantly Minimalist Instagram Accounts to Follow or our Pinterest account since we are always finding great ideas there as well.

If you’re thinking that simple jewelry can be boring, you’re totally mistaken. There are some seriously smart and creative ways to wear minimalistic jewelry without keeping things too simple. You can look classic and put-together when pairing simple pieces together like a simple #ringparty with a few dainty midi rings or even layering a few delicate necklaces together to keep things exciting.

5 Celebrity Travel Style Tips You Can Mimic

celebritytravelstylesTraveling, particularly on longer flights, is the one time you may be inclined to let your fashion guard down and just go with whatever is the most comfy. But there are celebrities that know how to accomplish both style and comfort in one fail swoop. Here are some easy tips to do the same on your next business or leisure trip. And don’t forget to accessorize!

Tip 1. Go stretchy with style. Sometimes stretch pants and a tunic with the right scarf and bangle bracelets are just the ticket to flying with comfortable style.

Tip 2. Embrace flats for long flights. Most people experience some swelling in the feet and ankles from being stuck in a tiny seat at altitude for an extended period of time. So avoid toe pinching heels and go with a comfy but cute flat or sandal. Or if your outfit requires a heel, bring slippers to switch to during the flight- after all, no one is looking at your feet on the plane.

Tip 3. Get a great, but big bag to use as your carry on instead of a small purse and another carry-on bag. Consolidating makes your life easier and a big tote is totally in style.

Tip 4. Pull your hair back and out of your face. Instead of spending hours prepping your hair with curls that will just get squashed go with a simple off the face up do for travel days. It’ll save you time, energy and be much more comfortable as you nap on the plane.

Tip 5. Wear layers so you can be comfortable at whatever temperature the plane or airport ends up being. Knowing the temperature to dress for at point A may not accommodate you at point B so wearing layers is a great way to be comfortable and cute no matter what happens with the AC or the weather on the ground at your destination.

Remember, fashion and travel are not always the best of friends but you can do simple things to ensure you’re both cute and comfy on your next big trip. Stay tuned to our fashion and lifestyle blog for other travel tips in the weeks ahead. Share your travel style favorites with us on Twitter @assuredallure using hashtag #travelchic.
