A few years ago we did a blog on how to wear statement jewelry. Well, as with anything, things change as time goes on so we wanted to do a revamp of that post today!
Wearing statement jewelry can be scary at first, but once you jump in, you’ll realize how easy it is! There is no right or wrong to how you wear it, but if you’re just getting started here are a few tips…
· Feel confident and empowered. That’s our motto. We want you to feel empowered to choose a fun necklace and/or bracelet and feel confident when wearing it! We like to think of our statement jewelry as conversation starters. We want people to come up to you and say “wow, I love your necklace!” This in turn makes you feel confident in your own skin!
· Don’t be afraid to wear color! We’re carrying this over from our last post because it still stands true today. If you lay out necklaces in different colors such as, teal, grey, pink, and yellow, I know for a fact most people will probably choose grey. Why? It is the most neutral and the least intimidating option. Stop thinking like that! Don’t be afraid to wear some color and stand out!
· You can pattern mix. Just because you may be wearing a blouse or dress with a busy pattern doesn’t mean you still can’t add in some statement jewelry. Pick a necklace with coordinating colors but something that still stands out. If you’re still unsure, pair your outfit with some statement earrings and a coordinating bracelet instead.
· Lastly, be comfortable! We want you to be comfortable with your decisions on how you wear your statement jewelry so you wear it confidently!
We love to see how you choose to wear Sylca! Send us your pictures or use #mysylcastory!
Are you afraid to wear color in the fall? Don’t be!
Everyone automatically associates color with the warmer months, spring and summer, and darker colors with fall and winter. While that is true, that doesn’t mean you CAN’T wear color any time of the year!
In our weekly favorites, Gina shows you how! She paired a muted purple long sleeve top, jeans, and cute slip on sneakers with our multi color Leilani necklace and Azalea necklace. Both feature the same multi color wooden beads wrapped with colorful string around each bead! The Leilani necklace is longer, where as the Azalea necklace is shorter, but both offer the same pop of color!
Throw on a light jacket if need be, maybe a pair of booties if you’re meeting up with friends, but either way you have the perfect fall look with color! What do you think?
The cooler months don’t have to be blah and boring! Show us how you add some color to your fall wardrobe!
Fall is just around the corner, so were talking about our 5 fall must haves! These are a few staples we like to keep in our closet for the fall! Having these to mix and match with all your outfits will give you a ton of variety this season!
- A jean jacket! This is probably my favorite piece to own. Perfect for the crisp fall days and nights, throw it over a tank or tee with jeans or leggings, and it’s the cutest outfit!
- A blouse! Blouses are an easy go to for a cute outfit. Throw a blouse on with jeans and cute shoes and you’re good to go.
- Army green everything! This is our go-to color this season! Linen pants, shirts, a cute jacket… you can’t go wrong with this beautiful fall color.
- Slip-ons! We love a cute pair of slip ons. They literally go with anything; Jeans, leggings, skirts, blouses, and tees!
- Statement jewelry, of course! Finish off any outfit with a cute statement piece!
What are some of your favorite fall must haves? We’d love to hear!
This week we wanted to show you our frosted pieces from our new collection! We have multiple frosted pieces to choose from, but today we’re showcasing two styles for you to see how fun and easy they are to wear!
Our Taylor necklace, or as I like to call it, our bubble necklace, features frosted bubble like beads in different sizes, and scattered on a black adjustable cord. This necklace is fun and easy to wear! The frosted beads really stand out against dark clothing, like the black shirt we paired it with. The “bubbles” are a conversation starter for sure!
To keep with the theme, our Teegan pendant necklace is another fun frosted piece! This style is more of a pendant, featuring larger geometric beads almost in the shape of a flower. Again, being that the beads are frosted, pairing it with dark colored clothing works well. You can also try pairing with patterned clothing so that the clear beads pick up the different colors and patterns!
Both styles were paired with our wood and frosted dangle earrings.
If you like what you see here, head on over to our website for even more fun frosted styles! Which one is your favorite?
Something as simple as jewelry can really give your outfit a whole new look. Today, we show you two different looks with one outfit and how the way we accessorized made this outfit look different with each.
We took a simple long black tunic and jeans and kept it casual with a pair of sneakers. We wanted to keep it casual but add some flair, so we took chose to wear our black and white Harlow necklace and matching Amelia bracelets, and simple black beaded earrings. We love how the white and grey beads on the necklace stand out against the black tunic, yet keep the look simple and casual. Perfect for an afternoon of lunch and running errands!
We then kept the same long black tunic and jeans, and paired them with a cute pair of heels to dress it up a little. To add to the dressed up look we paired our red multi-strand resin necklace and black and red geometric bracelet together. The glossy finish on both pieces contributes to the dressy look. This would be a perfect outfit to meet some friends at happy hour in!
We love that we can take the same old clothes we have in our closet and take different pieces of jewelry to give it a different look every time! It makes us feel like we have a new outfit each time we wear it!
What staple piece to do always wear and how do you change up the look each time you wear it?

We’re so excited to show you some brand new styles this week! Not only are they from our newest collection, but we also went a slightly different route with these pieces as we usually do. Did you notice the chain? Typically our necklaces hang on cord either plain or beaded, but we wanted to try something new… we went with a copper chain for some of our collection!
We chose a casual outfit this week to pair with our chain because we thought it would make it stand out and show you how it could dress up any outfit – even something super casual as Gina is wearing! The first necklace is our Grace necklace in blush. We liked how the color blended with the top but also still stood out around the neckline. It gave a casual outfit a subtle statement! We paired it with the matching blush Amelia bracelet for an added accent.
Next we chose our geometric Cadence necklace in grey. This is a fun pendant that looks like a wearable piece of art, and we love how the grey pops against the light pink shirt. Again, the dainty copper chain helps “dress up” the outfit a little. We also chose the matching grey Amelia bracelet to pair with this necklace.
We love this casual look and how is shows how easy it is to add a little flare to an every day outfit with our statement jewelry!
Do you like the new styles and look of the copper chain?
Have you tried pattern mixing? I’ll be honest, I was skeptical at first. When I hear “pattern mixing” I right away think something like a red polka dot shirt and blue stripped pants. NO. That’s actually not it at all… it’s a little more subtle than that. Phew.
We took a pair of simple polka dot jeans and paired it with fun plaid shirt, and were loving how it came together! These jeans are easy to pattern mix with because they are subtle so pretty much any shirt you pair with them will go! For this outfit, the blue in the plaid shirt complimented the blue jeans so the whole thing just kind of flowed!
What I love about pattern mixing is it kind of mixes up your outfits. If you’re like me, you most likely have a favorite pair of jeans or pants and a favorite top that you would typically wear together over and over and over again… Well, by pattern mixing, it switches up your options and its almost like you have a brand new outfit! I’m sure if I really took a look in my closet I could get more creative!

I think Thursdays are becoming our favorite day of the week! Today Camila is showing you how to wear our multi color Petunia necklace, both the long and short version! We love how bright and vibrant these necklaces are especially against the black jumpsuit Camila is wearing! Even though these necklaces are super similar, they offer a different look to the outfit.
The first necklace is the shorter version of the Petunia necklace. The beads are smaller in size, and double layered to create more of a pendant pattern which sits nicely across the chest, and makes for a fun neckline. We love how it lays perfectly right about the v neck of the jumpsuit and makes the whole outfit stand out! Sometimes its hard to find a necklace that lays perfectly with certain necklines, but this one definitely does the trick!
The longer version of the Petunia necklace features the same bright and colorful beads, but in multiple sizes and longer in length of course. This also happens to sit on the neckline of this particular jumpsuit perfectly, outlining the v neck. Its almost as if this necklace was made for this jumpsuit! The bright colors of this necklace stand out against the black and complete the overall look of the outfit.
Which length necklace do you prefer, long or short?
We hope you’re loving our weekly favorites as much as we do!
It’s safe to say we’ve hopped on the linen trend train this summer and were not sorry about it! We’re loving how lightweight the fabric is, and how easy it is to wear! The neutral colors and patterns go with pretty much anything you already have in your closet! Pants, shorts, shirts, dresses… the options are endless!
Do you know what else we love about linen? The trend rolls into fall with some darker colors such as army green and black! I love when I can justify a purchase by getting 2 seasons out of it! But let’s not get ahead of ourselves, we’ll save our fall linen styles for another post…
Back to summer, we styled a light blue and white striped linen tank top with white pants and brown sandals for a more casual every day look. You could totally dress it up with a high waisted skirt and heels for a dinner out with the girls!
Linen is definitely an essential for your wardrobe this year! Below are some other summer trends and linen were loving!
What has been your favorite trend this summer?
We kept it simple this week with neutrals, which in my opinion, you can never go wrong with…
Our Beaded Sienna Necklace was an easy choice when we decided to keep this look simple. This necklace is a staple in our closet because of how versatile it is! It actually comes double stranded at about 60″ long so we always double it up to created a shorter, 4 strand necklace! If you like an even chunkier look, you can triple it up and created more of a chunky choker look! Another look we love to do with this necklace is to tie it into a loose not for a lariat look. See how fun this necklace is? Let us know if you find any other ways to wear it!
We also chose our Gold Sloan Necklace to give our outfit a more dressier look. Being that this pendant is on the larger side, it really makes a statement against a plain top. my favorite part about this necklace is that the pendant is made up of broken shell which gives it the shiny, iridescent look!
Both of these necklaces were the perfect choices for a loose fitting tan top, and flowy black crop pants. We love the “less is more” look of this whole outfit!
