This week’s Top 3 Picks feature oh so subtle flesh tone jewelry. When we think flesh tones, we can’t help but imagine hues of cream, neutral tans, dusty rose, milky salmon and light peach come to mind. This trend lives year round, but has moments in the spot light. The Fall and Holiday seasons are always a great time to adorn yourself with flesh tone jewelry. These accessories match back to virtually every outfit and are an easy day to night look. Let’s take, for example, the nude pump. Goes with everything from office slacks to a sexy evening mini dress. The best part about nude jewelry is that you can match to any color! Whether you’re in a bright pink dress and want to stack cobalt and nude bangles up each arm or you’re in floral printed wide leg pants with a flowy tank and nude earrings… You can’t go wrong!
Rocks Paper Metal also thinks that nude in conjunction with neon is going to be a huge trend for Spring and Fall 2012. We have already started to see glimpses of this funky pair, but we believe the best is yet to come! The color pallet is a total mix for next year, far from our normal gem tones and primaries. We are predicting splashes of bright colors through every season, perfectly balanced with neutral flesh tones, dirty 70’s mustard and deep reds, blues and a hint of pastel at the beginning of the year.
The runway and red carpet has already seen some quite extravagant pops of neon with flesh tones. This tell us that the designers are on board and we are anxiously waiting for the masses to jump on too! But if you are too cautious to jump into the pallet mixing, start with the easy neutral jewelry trend. Pair simple one tone plated styles with your favorite dusty rose or light pink accessories. Bracelets are the easiest way to incorporate this trend into your existing jewelry collection. Also, stud earrings in flesh tone resin or enamel painting can be the perfect subtle accent of neutral color. Nude jewelry necklaces are few and far between so if you find one, invest! You can wear nude pearls and long nude beaded styles for years to come. A perfect go to on those ‘I have nothing to wear’ fashion crisis days.
Sheer and nude flesh tone are going to be the big trends for that conservative girl in 2012. While neon takes over the rest of the market, find that perfect balance for your day to night wardrobe!
