Crystals. Once only found in a side alley hippie shop. Back in the early 2000s this was the go to place for unorthodox piercings (sorry dad), a heady musk-like perfume and sticks of incense.
Now we are seeing crystals headlining the runways and adorning the most discerning of fashionistas… So, what’s the appeal?
Turns out these magical rocks have never really gone out of style. What’s more we now understand far more about crystals, their powers and how to wear them so you don’t look like you’re on a permanent gap year.
Although this is an undeniably cool look.
Crystals are an incredibly versatile jewellery choice so embrace them.
Crystal is now a style staple for the modern traveller and unless you’ve been living under a fashion rock it’s fairly clear that Boho is back. 90’s Bohemia, reigns high in particular, with fashion feeling like it’s fallen straight out of a Fantazia rave. So what better stone to work alongside your 90’s traveller look?
Accessories are key to creating an authentic vintage look; layer your crystal necklaces, choosing finer bracelets and stacking rings- check out our Salt and Pepper brand for a 90’s inspired collection. A crystal sunglasses chain, courtesy of Sarie Joynes, will have you looking like a Winona in her Depp era. Finally work up your bling with shoe-string floral dresses, biker boots and denim jacket for the ubiquitous 90s look.
If you’re not holidaying in Bali or dancing in a field somewhere, don’t be afraid to wear crystals with a sharper style. Whilst they are the perfect sidekick to a bohemian look, the juxtaposition of an earthy stone with a crisp white shirt might bring a little more serenity to your working lunch. If not, at least you’ll look smoking hot.
Crystal is also the antidote to the winter accessory dilemma and holds its own against the thick, layered and heavy fabrics we see in the AW season. A longer crystal pendant works well against a heavier knit as does a pair of weightier earrings. A ‘Listerine’ coloured aquamarine against a fluffy black knit is simply a joy on a cosy winter day.
So there it is, our crystal roundup and how to wear them. Lucky for you we’ve handpicked an array of crystal beauties to suit your style.
Don’t forget, they are more versatile than you think.
Here’s our Style Editor’s pick of the best. You’re welcome.
