Industrial edge: Quick tips for updating feminine styles

We all know that spring brings about floral and pastel fashions, creating pretty and feminine wardrobes. While these light options are ideal for the sunny seasons, they may not be your style or particularly modern.

If you want to update the more feminine spring fashions of spring but still stay on-trend, we have some great tips on how to add an industrial edge. Read on to see how you can rock this look:

Chunky chains

One of the easiest ways to add a more modern element to typical spring looks is by including chunky chains.

Chain necklaces and bracelets that are oversized create a stylish urban look that contrasts with sundresses and soft shades while still working with them.

This means that something like this Italian 9K Yellow Gold Oval Belcher and Bar Bracelet can work well with subtle maxi dresses or vintage-style fit and flare skirts.

Geometric shapes

A great way to contrast with soft patterns like floral designs is to wear striking geometric jewellery. This adds straight lines to your look that will make a statement even if you’re only wearing small pieces.

Our Square Necklace and Hook Earrings set is a great choice for spring and will work really well with any of the colours that are in fashion for SS16.


A really subtle and effective way to add a simple, industrial element to your spring wardrobe is to wear multiple band rings at different points on your fingers. These can be plain circular rings or include different shapes like triangles for a more varied look.

This is a big part of the tailored trend and a great way to add details that contrast with florals and pastels. Stick to a single colour for your rings – yellow gold, silver or rose gold – and avoid gems for the best effect.
