July 15th, 2021
Going on any trip is an excuse to experiment with your style. The easiest way to change up your routine look for vacation glam is by accessorizing with the right jewelry. Whether you’re headed to somewhere tropical or a bustling city, you’ll need pieces that compliment a variety of outfits to mix and match, while making you feel your best. We have rounded up our best tips for what jewelry to pack on vacation so you can soak up the sun in style.
WHAT JEWELRY SHOULD YOU WEAR ON VACATION? FIRST, CONSIDER YOUR COLLECTION
Take inspiration from your own collection before purchasing new pieces for summer. Pick a few staples like hoops and bangles that can be matched well with other metals. Bangles are easy to wear alone or stacked with others for a carefree, bohemian style—the epitome of an easy, breezy summer.
Pro Tip: Don’t pack your favorite jewelry pieces! Anything with sentimental value is best kept at home. Wearing your favorites by the pool or to the beach may result in a tragic loss.
TAKE THE PLUNGE WITH LARIATS
Summer is the time to experiment with plunging necklines. Whether a little black dress or a sultry low-cut top, turn up the heat by accessorizing with a lariat necklace. Perfect forthose warm sunset dinners, a lariat necklace such as this sterling silver foxtail chain lariat from John Hardy, will draw attention to your flawless neckline.Mixing languid strands with shimmering freshwater pearls, this necklace gives off a beautifully organic feel.
Pro Tip: Lariat necklaces can be adjusted to any length, making them a suitable fit for a wide variety of necklines. They can even be worn reversed for a stunning backless moment.
LOOK FOR EDGY STUDS
Earrings, no matter how small, will amplify your style. A summer up-do or sun hat will give you the ability to flaunt your earrings at every turn. Studs are a classic jewelry staple that will never go out of style so it’s no wonder they make such a versatile vacation accessory. For a fun twist on this timeless style, choose a pair of geometric studs like these chevron studs from Shy Creation, which will easily take you from day to night.
Pro Tip: When thinking about what to pack for vacation, a pair or two of stud earrings are essential, because they add just enough drama without worrying they will get caught on anything like your hair on breezy summer days.
DITCH THE RINGS
If at the beach or pool remember to remove your precious jewelry. Chlorine and salt water can be extremely harmful with the potential to damage or discolor your jewelry. Summer heat will often make your fingers swell then the shock of cold water can cause them to shrink. This is a sure way to lose rings, so be cautious of what you wear. Your rings may also be scratched by sand and dirt, so make sure to leave your rings at home before digging or building sandcastles.
Pro Tip: We recommend ditching your favorite ring stack—too many pieces with the potential to get lost. Instead, consider a faux stack such as this David Yurman Crossover Ring, which is versatile and convenient. Plus, the sculpted rope detailing gives us nautical-inspired daydreams.
