Metscan asked about Jan’s attitudes to jewellery and jeans – here is her reply – FYI – in New Zealand, jandals are their word for flip-flops which in Australia we know as thongs!
“In respect to jeans and jewellery, I think you have to take care when you with putting the two together , it is a bit like levels of refinement. It also depends on your style and how you combine the items .
I personally think that if you are wearing sneakers or a canvas shoe with jeans , then no jewels. However jeans, jewelled jandals and a tank top can look great in the summer with a fabulous beaded necklace, even rubber jandals and a tank top and jeans can look wonderful with a super casual necklace. If you take the mood up a notch and you have a heeled sandal on and a nice top then your jewellery can be a bit more ornate but must still have a casual look to match the mood of the jeans . With boots and jeans , it all depends how you are wearing them.
If you are wearing dress jeans and a silk top then your jewellery can match that level of dress. If you are unsure do the blink test .” Jan Fisher, AICI, Image Coach
I did up this Polyvore to help illustrate Jan’s points.
