Hey, hey, hey! Welcome back to my blog. If you haven’t subscribed yet, please go ahead and do so before you continue reading this post.

I’ll wait…

Okay guys, so recently I have fallen madly in love with the minimalist jewelry trend. Within the last year, minimalism has managed to emerge through different artistic facets, such a music, interior design, and fashion. It is the ideology that less is more. Minimalist jewelry, also - known- as “naked jewelry” has a chic and understated elegance that help accentuate the beauty of the wear, instead of overpowering them.

There are so many ways that you can incorporate this type of jewelry into your wardrobe. To make it easier for all of you, I went ahead a picked 5 different piece that will help you start up your collection. The simple, delicate nature of the pieces I picked, will allow you to create effortless and aesthetic looks that aren’t going to take away from your natural beauty.

All these pieces were purchased from ASOS.com

1. Fine Flat Torque choker

This is honestly my favorite piece. The elegance and simplicity of this choker helps accentuate the neck and the chest area. This is a piece you can easily dress up or dress down. Throw on a white button up (don't button it all the way. Let your chest breath honey!), a pair of blue jeans and white converse for a more casual look and switch it up at night with a strappy black blouse and a pair of your favorite high heels.

2. Slim Cuff Bracelet

This bracelet speaks for itself.  It blends in so well with any kind of style. This is an everyday piece that you can wear with literally anything. Pair it up with a watch to help create a more playful look.

3. Shard Earrings

Modern. Minimal. Unique. Inspired by geometry and clean lines, these minimalist shard earrings are the perfect contemporary pieces to add to your jewelry collection. This style is most suited for special occasions such as cocktail parties, weddings or date nights. Pair this with an A-line red dress or switch it up with an edgy power suit to create a classy and elegant look.

4. Open Twisted Bar Earrings

 Delicate and trendy. Inspired by clean lines, this twisted bar earring design is a simple yet unique style that will help spruce up your daily look. I love these earrings because they are super light and comfortable and go with anything that I wear. Pair them with an oversized t-shirt, boyfriend jeans and sneakers for a casual look. ( I would pair them with Adidas sneakers in the Gazelle style) Dress them up with a ruffle dress of any color and your favorite pair of wedges.

 5. Fine Minimal Rings

Rings are my go-to accessory any day and any time of the week. They are easy to incorporate into your outfits and add a more sophisticated touch to your wardrobe. Explore different ways you can handscape, which means pairing a variety of minimalist style rings to help create more aesthetic to your outfit. Don't be afraid to mix and match midi rings on different fingers as well as play with different ring styles.


I picked these pieces because they are versatile and can be seamlessly integrated into your own personal style; from a day at work or at school, to a night out on the town. Don’t be afraid to pair different styles of the jewelry together to help build your look. So yes, you can still have a “ring party” and still be minimalist about it. Layer dainty necklaces for fun, play around with different shapes and styles to create a flirty, delicate and classy look.
