Fashion: How to style quirky jewellery with Clocha

It feels like you can't walk in a shop these days without seeing a necklace that looks like a unicorn or earrings themed around your favourite TV series but how do you style these fun pieces? Don't worry, we have you covered with this step-by-step guide on how to style quirky jewellery.

Go full out vs go minimalistic 
This really depends on what kind of vibe you want to create. You could turn your whole outfit into a work of art. Some of my favourite influencers do this, like A Fashion Nerd and Blair Eadie. I think if you have the confidence to do this, you can create such a unique sense of personal style.

Alternatively, quirky jewellery pieces look great with a simple minimalistic look. This kind of vibe can look super stylish and eye catching without being too out there. So, if you have a tendency to worry about what others think of you. This could be the option for you. Kaitlyn Ham is inspo.

Create a theme 
Themes can be so much fun and quirky jewellery lends itself to this. I'd also like to point out that themes shouldn't just be shelved for a costume party. They can work nicely in everyday life, if they're done subtlety.

Take these shell earrings, you can style your whole outfit around a beach theme. You could do this using cream beach tones and by adding in some other shell jewellery pieces. The fork bracelet could lead to a breakfast theme. You could wear a cornflakes tee and customise some hair grips with colourful breakfast cereal hoops.

Think about the logistics 
You have to think about logistics when it comes to jewellery. If you have statement earrings, it might be best to save them for a night out because they can become heavy on your ears if you're wearing them all day.

With necklaces, you have to think about the chain length. You can tie it at the back to turn it into a choker if it's an awkward length. I find long necklaces work best with high neck plain coloured clothes. That way they can flow nicely over the top and standout.

Then there's the whole debate on whether you can mix silver and gold when it comes to jewellery. I'll leave you to think about where you stand on that one.

Just wear one piece 
Quirky pieces are made to be that item in the shop that you run towards and go, 'ah, that bracelet is shaped like a fork, it's so cute'.

If you wear multiple quirky pieces, it can start to feel a bit overwhelming and your eyes become confused as you don't know where to look. Too much visual stimuli. You can make it work in your favour if all the pieces are similar... like all shell jewellery. It starts to get tricky when you're mixing and matching. It can be done, but it's difficult and takes an artistic eye.
