Styling for Summer - Jack Weir & Sons

We know we are excited to get away this summer - to explore sandy beaches, big cities, and new places near and far. One of the most fun parts of getting away is getting to add new flourishes to your wardrobe to feel comfortable in these new settings. Estate jewelry offers a unique opportunity to add a touch of history and glamour to these summer getaway wardrobes.  One-of-a-kind pieces possess a timeless charm that can elevate any ensemble, allowing you to make a stylish statement and work as conversation starters too!   Today we’re going to explore some ways to incorporate our fantastic collection here at Jack Weir & Sons into your summer getaway looks. 

Embrace the Lightness and Levity of Summer 

In most places, summer is the perfect time to experiment with light and airy outfits, and estate jewelry can complement these looks beautifully. Opt for delicate pieces such as filigree bracelets, pendant necklaces, and dainty earrings. These intricately designed accessories add a touch of femininity to your summer ensemble without overpowering it. Choose estate jewelry that features gemstones in vibrant hues like aquamarine, citrine, or peridot to capture the essence of the season.

Mix Vintage with Contemporary 

Create a fashion-forward blend by combining estate jewelry with modern pieces. Consider wearing a classic strand of pearls with a flowing maxi dress to strike a balance between old-world elegance and effortless bohemian vibes. The contrast between vintage and contemporary elements will add depth and character to your overall look.

Stack and Layer

Summer provides the perfect opportunity to experiment with layering and stacking estate jewelry. Combine delicate rings in different metals and styles on your fingers for a trendy and eclectic look. Layer multiple necklaces of varying lengths and textures to create a visually stunning and personalized statement. Experiment with different combinations until you achieve a harmonious and eye-catching arrangement.

Consider Colorful Gems!

Summertime is all about vibrant colors, and estate jewelry offers an array of stunning gemstones to choose from. Incorporate pieces featuring colorful gemstones like amethyst, turquoise, or coral into your accessories collection. These vivid hues will add a playful and joyful touch to your summer outfits, instantly catching the light and drawing attention.

Let Statement Pieces Shine 

Sometimes, one striking estate jewelry piece is all you need to make a powerful statement. Allow a bold cocktail ring, an ornate chandelier earring, or an exquisite vintage necklace to take center stage by keeping the rest of your outfit simple. A little black dress or a white linen ensemble can provide the perfect backdrop, allowing your statement piece to shine and capture attention.

Bring it to the Beach! 

Don't hesitate to bring a little bling to the beach! Summer vacations and beach getaways offer an opportunity to infuse a touch of glamour into your seaside look. Opt for oversized sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat, and a flowing cover-up, then adorn yourself with jewelry that captures the beauty of the ocean and its surroundings - shell, coral, and turquoise all evoke the spirit of the beach while adding a luxurious touch.

Styling estate jewelry for the summer allows you to embrace the beauty of the past while embracing the spirit of the season. Whether you prefer delicate and dainty pieces or bold and statement-making designs, estate jewelry offers a world of possibilities to enhance your summer ensembles. Remember to experiment, mix old with new, and let your creativity guide you as you create stunning looks that showcase the timeless elegance and charm of estate jewelry.
