Amethyst, apatite, and pyrite—oh my! The Kendra Scott Winter 2017 collection is filled with stunning jewel tones, and I’ve been obsessed since the first preview images hit social media. Just like I love to mix metals, mixing colors in one piece of jewelry is a personal favorite. Not only does it add a little more pizzazz to your piece, but it expands the wearability and provides you with coordination inspiration. Cobalt and emerald may not pop into your head as a perfect pair, but when you see them together in a pair of earrings it might give you an idea for a new outfit. Sure, I tend to grab grey and more grey, but perhaps if I had more color inspo on hand I’d reach for the brights and bolds more often.
TL;DR, more is more and this jewelry is fantastic.
Contrary to everything I just wrote about color, I decided to style these Kendra Scott pieces—a pair of ear climbers (that I’m technically wearing backwards but enjoy both ways) and an adjustable necklace—with a winter white dress to let the jewel tone accessories pop. The pieces look great with every color I’ve paired them with, but for the sake of celebrating their individual amazingness I reached for texture instead of color. I added the leopard coat because, well, it’s cold, but we’ll pretend it was a fashion choice and call it an outfit.
So you can tell why I squealed when their PR person surprised me with these pieces, right?
This is my first Kendra Scott adjustable necklace, and I’ll be honest: I was skeptical. I didn’t think the same piece could go from choker to full-length without slipping out of place, pinching your skin, or looking bizarre, but this item has looked perfect every way I’ve worn it so far. When worn long, it does flip around a bit, but since both sides are pretty this isn’t really a problem. I think I most love wearing it as a choker (see that here) but the medium length was perfect for this neckline.
