The minimal jewelry craze is one of my fav jewelry trends in a long time. I’ve rarely been one to sport big jewelry, and now with full-time glasses, it’s especially tough. Yes. Glasses gals, you know what I’m talking about. Those of us with glasses can all-too-quickly enter the “too many cranial accessories” territory (Mitch Hedberg fans, anyone?). And I think it was Coco Chanel who said you should look in the mirror before leaving the house and remove one accessory. This has always stuck in my head any time I accessorize, and I probably err on the side of too few. Enter me having to wear glasses full time over the last year and UGH. I always have an accessory on. Always. And it’s the same one every. day. It drives this Aquarian-lover-of-change up the freaking wall.
Finding accessories that work with glasses has been on my list of problems to solve for years now, but, enter the minimal jewelry trend — and hooray! Problem solved. Lots of tiny jewelry together is pretty and feminine, plus it’s not overwhelming and works for us four-eyed mamas. Good morning. Good evening. And good night. Finally, something on-trend that works.
The fun thing about this trend is that you can kinda go nuts and layer it without looking overdone. I went with a soft lip color here to create a more monochromatic look with my ivory top and pale pink glasses, but it’s fun to also play around with a bold lip, especially if your glasses are darker.

Fellow glasses friends, do you have any favorite styling tips? I must say I’ve been super happy with these pale pink frames from Warby Parker over the last year. They do recede as far as accessories go, and make pairing other pieces with them a tiny bit easier than my older, dark tortoise frames. I’d love to hear what solutions you’ve come up with for this issue. OH, and I’m also loving this little gem to clean them with these days. Game-changer.
Hop on over to follow me on Instagram @laurajansenstyle (new IG name!) to see more of what I’m up to in my glasses in Portland, Oregon. And don’t forget about LikeToKnow.It for easy peasy shopping of the looks I’m loving!
