Sylca Styles: Pattern Mixing

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!

Do you pattern mix? We want to know! Show us some of your fun outfits using #sylcastyles

Weekly Favorites

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!

Summer Trends: Linen

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!

Weekly Favorites Recap

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!

What do you think? As always, show us how you style Sylca using #mysylcastory !

Weekly Favorites Recap

This week Gina went bold with her choices. For her first look, she paired bright greens and purples against a navy blue shirt and it looked awesome! The Leilani necklace is a mix of green, grey, and purple geometric beads that can be worn long or short! The colors compliment the navy blue, but also stand out against it to make a statement. We paired this look with the matching chunky bracelet to complete the look.

The next look was a more elegant look with our purple Kalei necklace. This beautiful necklace is handmade with colorful string wrapped around each bead giving this necklace a more delicate look. Again, these colors complimented the navy blue shirt really making the necklace stand out. The delicateness of this necklace automatically gives this outfit a more dressy look.

We love how for this weeks favorites we pulled off two different looks; casual and dressy, using the same outfit. It just goes to show how versatile our pieces are!

Which look is your favorite? As always, show us how you style Sylca using #mysylcastory! Maybe you’ll see your outfit featured on a post one day!

Hi everyone!

For this weeks favorites we kept the theme going from last week with patterns and bright colors!

We love the the oranges, greens, yellows, and grey all compliment the colors of the dress without being too overwhelming.

The Elisa link necklace pairs perfectly with the bright colors in the dress, yet still stands out and doesn’t get lost against the pattern of the dress.

Our second choice we chose was our Willow necklace. We love how the grey keeps this look a little more subtle, but still fun with the mix of yellow and white beads.

Both looks we paired with simple matching yellow earrings to pull the look together.

This outfit if perfect for an afternoon picnic or a dinner out on the patio! Which necklace do you like best paired with this dress?

Colombia: How it inspires us!

We thought it would be fun to show you all a little piece of our culture and how it inspires us!

This picture does a great job capturing the beauty and culture of Colombia. We love the fun vibe it gives off and all the beautiful colors it shows. We try to tie all that into each of our collections!

Not only does the beauty and color inspire us, but also the environment. All of our jewelry is handmade using shell, wood, and resin which is all materials found in Colombia.

Our jewelry truly captures our roots and we love that we are able to share that with you all!

What do you love most about our pieces?

Have you seen the recent weekly favorites video yet?

Typically when we wear our statement jewelry we tend to wear more toned down colors or plain outfits so that our jewelry really stands out. However, what is great about our jewelry is that you truly can wear it with anything!

For starters, how cute is the printed palm dress in the video!? It makes you feel like you’re on a tropical island! The only thing missing from our video was a tropical drink…

We chose our Celeste necklace specifically to show off the off the shoulder neckline of the dress. The length of this multi strand beaded necklace adds just enough accent without taking away from the dress, and the pink pairs perfectly with the colors of the dress! For our second look, we chose our Misha necklace. This pink pendant necklace has a multi color accent bead in the middle which really pulls all the colors of the dress together. It is adjustable for you to get the specific length you’re looking for! We paired both looks with our pink and multi resin bracelet. Again, we just think the pink and multi color accent the dress so well!

Let us know what you think of this weeks video! Do you want to see more patterns like this, or more neutrals?

Do you love our jewelry, but not sure how to wear it? Follow along each week as we pick a few our of favorites and talk about why we love them and how to style them! Along with the video we’ll post a recap of our picks here on the blog!

For this weeks picks we chose our Dahlia and Misha necklace and paired them both with a pair of our bestselling Lola earrings and our multi color bangle!

We paired these pieces with a light blue stripped shirt for a muted feel, yet still getting that pop of color from the multi color accent beads and bangle! We also love how the length of the Dahlia necklace makes for a fun neckline on such a simple shirt. For a more casual look, the Misha pendant is the perfect choice. The multi color bangles finishes off the whole look, pulling all the color together!
