Why Choose Between Gold and Silver?

I have this thing about wanting to have a signature style. Although I wrote about why you shouldn't define your style, I still find myself thinking about the exact image I want to portray. My best friend Katie is a color expert; she always talks about what "color season" a person is and what they should wear to most flatter them because of it.

For a long time I only wore silver jewelry. It wasn't a conscious decision, it just so happened to be that it was what I was most attracted to. After Katie told me that, with my color season, gold was really more of my color I started to incorporate gold accessories into what I wore.

This of course led to silver being left out. It made me stop and think "why should I choose just one color to wear?" And the answer to that question is there is no truly good reason to stick with just one precious metal! Now I wear gold and silver all of the time (even together; what a rebel I am, right?).

Here is a list of some reasons you shouldn't choose between gold and silver:
  1. You look good in both. If you're wearing nice jewelry, trust me you look good no matter what color it is.
  2. You are an inclusive person. Discrimination is not ok and you know it.
  3. Mixed metal stacks are all the rage. As you know I like to keep things classic. However, I've been wearing a stack with as much enthusiasm as the next girl and its been mixed metals. I wear a two tone watch, add a silver Cape Cod bracelet, dainty Tiffany & Co. charm and pearls and you have yourself a simultaneously trendy and timeless statement. 
  4. You like to live without limitations. So go for it. Be bold and embrace it all!
Do you swear by gold or silver, or are you open to both?
