Is Fishbone Jewellery for the Birds?

Certain fads are challenging to don, which is also what makes the fashion industry so exhilarating. Included in these challenging trends is the ever controversial fishbone jewellery.

Fishbone jewellery is exactly what it sounds like: Pieces that resemble the skeletal structure of a fish. While some are against the thought of wearing it at all, others are intrigued by the challenge. So, how do you wear this style and is it worth it at all? Meaning, will it elevate your outfit to better heights? The answer is yes and here’s how:

Sport It as a Choker

If you are one of the people who thought that chokers died along with the 90’s, you are about to be pleasantly surprised. Chokers once only came in standard shades and styles, but the accessory comes in a plethora of options today. Among the greatest options include the fishbone choker. Though these chokers come in a multitude of colours, silver or gold paired with a plain black t-shirt, jeans, and open toed shoes will provide you an outfit that is both simple and top model ready.

Dangle It from Your Ears

Earrings are the perfect accessory to take your outfit from okay to, “Wow, where did you get that?” Fishbone earrings are unique, there is no denying that, so it is best to wear these earrings with a simple, plain outfit and hairstyle. Because dangle earrings work the best with short hair or up-dos, a more lax occasion is essential for pulling off this look.

Wrap It Around Your Wrist with Pride

Bracelets are a great way to add that little something extra to your style. While fishbone earrings and chokers cannot jive properly with an immensely formal outfit, a bracelet can. A gold fishbone bracelet layered with other bangles, like a solid diamond or gold band, can look incredible with a sleek, black cocktail dress. If your outfit or dress contains colour, consider incorporating a solid, same coloured bracelet in your stack.

Wear Them All for a Hipster Feel

Flowy earth tones, floral prints, over-sized floppy hats, gladiator sandals, denim shorts and jackets, long dresses, gaucho pants, fringe tops, and ponchos are a few of the elements to create an outfit that is totally Boho chic and fishbone jewellery will look incredible with all of them, especially if it is all gold. Layer fishbone chokers with drop necklaces and your bangles with similar hues and textures, like leather for the best look.

Try Turquoise

While gold and silver are the most popular in the fishbone jewellery realm, turquoise pieces are just as epic. Because turquoise adds a pop of colour to your wardrobe, pairing it with solids, like white, black, and denim, is ideal. Despite this rule, though, you can also pair your turquoise fishbone with contrasting colours, including lime green!
