One of the Hotest Trends of 2017 in jewelry and fashion is lightweight minimalistic "A lighter way of living.”
Lightness can be either lighter color palette or in terms of weight (or lack thereof).....will come to the fore front this year as one way to embrace the new minimalism.
What does that means for jewelry and watch lovers?
Really it’s shows that there’s a whole new design language not just about minimalism, but beyond minimalism. I'm seeing it in home decorating , jewelry and In fashion, it’s more about being lighter and consuming less.
Our culture’s embrace of minimalastic lifestyle seemed to have began with the change in the economy in 2008, partly because our desire to be discreet and the need to spend less and save more. We fast forward to 2017 and there’s a new philosophy that has emerged, which is very much about trying to buy less, but better and live in a more minimalistic way.
Adopting a minimalist look when you dress can look chic, slick and clean, but it isn’t as simple as many people think it is. Minimalist fashion isn’t about just wearing things that are basic and plain......that doesn’t create a minimalist aesthetic, but rather a simple, boring look that doesn’t seem to have had much thought put into it. Minimalist chic is about letting simple lines and color speak for themselves. Accessories are also a part of minimalist dressing, and things like belts, watches, sunglasses and YES JEWELRY, have a place when they are chosen in a minimalist style and worn in a way that doesn’t make the outfit busy or complicated.
Here are some tips for wearing jewelry when I am aiming for a minimalist look .
STICK TO SIMPLE STAMENT PIECES......
A beautiful way to add minimalist style with jewelry is to wear simple statement pieces that compliment you and your outfits without being ornate. If you are looking for a ring that will go with your sharpest work outfits and your most chic little black dresses, then a simple pearl in silver or white gold can give you that completed minimalist look without compromising the clean, sharp effect you are going for.
TRY WEARING JUST ONE STATEMENT PEICE.........
Jewelry is there to pull together your overall look, take a sleek minimalist outfit from dull to chic. Wearing too many matching pieces draw attention to too many parts of your outfit at once, it ruins the clean effect and makes the look complicated. This is fine if you are looking for a relaxed, funky style, but really doesn’t work for minimalist. For each outfit choose just one piece of statement jewelry. If you wear a watch, then this will count as your one piece in most cases. This is your statement for that outfit, and so don’t wear any other jewelry or keep what you do wear very discrete, like simple stud earrings.

To aviod any of your minimalist lines being clashed by the addition of jewelry, If you are wearing a simple top with a design on the front or a print, then don’t wear a necklace. If you have a blouse that has fringe or lace at your wrist, think how will it look if you are also wearing a bracelet.
Wearing jewelry can really compliment minimalist clothing, but you have to take care to keep what you wear in the same style as your outfit.

As someone who admires, yet struggled with starting my journey to live with only the things I love ❤️...... I'm struck by predictions how an obsession with living a minimalistic life will impact consumer behavior in 2017.
So I ask ........what do you consider to be your luxury? Whether it is, traveling or an emotional contact with others or choosing to surrond yourself with fewer , but higher quality possessions that will stand the test of time......One thing is evident the new generation of luxury consumers are more interested in being cerebral, not about looking to show off...
