Fall/Winter Looks

Mixing Metals

One thing that my matchy-matchy self has had to work hard to get on board with is mixing metals. I’m so prone to pairing gold with gold and silver with silver. However, sometimes it’s nice to switch things up. I was so excited when I got this coat on sale at J.Crew. I had my eye on it for so long and finally pulled the trigger. This color is called “dusty ginger”, which I think is hilarious. Although the coat has gold hardware, I thought the soft shade would pair nicely with some silver details. My bag has a brushed silver look but the chain is gold. The polka dots on my scarf are a deep silver, almost pewter color, and I thought it was a fun piece to finish off the look. Do you mix metals?!

    Love that color on you! I do mix metals sometimes, but am like you and usually keep gold with gold and silver with silver.

    You know what's funny? This morning I wore my usual Mejuri evil eye ring and then my new Michael Kors Silver heart bracelet and they were both on the same hand. I also had that arm candy picture of Insta yesterday (I think, time flies) and it was mixing metals. I realized I'm totally cool with mixing, and it makes the look so much more versatile. Love it! xx adaatude.com
