We know that keeping your sparkle and shine going during the snowy season can be tricky, so we put together some winter styling ideas to help. Just because you’re bundled up doesn’t mean you can’t express yourself with your favorite accessories. In fact, the right jewelry can elevate your winter wear in a major way. You might need to get a little creative with your looks, but that’s part of the fun of fashion! Follow these 5 tips to stay stylish and warm this winter.

1. Layer Statement Necklaces Over Tops

When it comes to winter jewelry, long, chunky, gold necklaces are the cream of the crop! They look amazing worn on top of sweaters and turtlenecks, adding an exciting visual element to traditional cold weather attire. A necklace with an eye-catching pendant is a great choice when you want to go big with a dramatic look, but even a subtle chain can add just a hint of shine that makes the outfit pop.

2. Let Your Ears Do the Talking

Even on those blustery days when a beanie is a must, you can still have a pair of earrings peeking out from below. Dangly earrings make wonderful winter jewelry because they’ll show even when your ears are fully covered.

Here’s a fun tip: Did you know that stud earrings can double as brooches? Pin an earring to your winter coat to give your cozy winter aesthetic a subtle touch of elegance.

3. Pair Compatible Rings and Gloves

As you explore winter styling ideas, you may also want to think about winter gear that complements your favorite jewelry. For example, fingerless gloves are super cute, and they’ll let your rings show (just make sure the weather doesn’t require full coverage!). You can also wear minimalist rings underneath your gloves so your winter jewelry is a nice surprise once the gloves come off. Be cautious when wearing loose-fitting or chunky rings, as they could slip off with your gloves if you’re not paying attention!

4. Wear Bigger, Bolder Bracelets

Long sleeves will usually cover your wrist accessories, but charm bracelets can still poke out. You could even add charms with longer chains just for wintertime. You could also stack multiple bangles underneath a loose sleeve. They may not be visible all the time, but people will catch a glimpse of that beautiful shine as you move.

5. Customize Your Perfect Winter Jewelry
