Do you have an upcoming trip planned? Whether you're going for a relaxed beach look or heading downtown to dazzle in the city lights, you want to plan outfits that make you feel great and fit the occasion. Jewelry is the go-to for defining your look, but you can only bring so many pieces. What's the best solution?

When you travel, it’s great to have versatile pieces of jewelry that minimize your packing, but not your style. From adjustable necklaces to hoops with added charms, the experts at Jewelry Television (JTV) recommend these pieces to provide looks for every trip and travel memory! Here are some versatile pieces of jewelry and tips for mixing and matching to create distinct looks without overpacking your accessories:

1. Adjustable necklaces

By taking some adjustable necklaces or magnetic extenders, you can wear the same pieces several times and achieve a different look. Wear it alone or adjust the length and layer it with a multi-strand necklace to complement various necklines on different outfits. You can also get an ensemble that enables you to rotate the chains or gemstones to create coordinated looks to match your attire.

2. Endless strands or lariat style necklaces

Endless strands are long-length, no-clasp necklaces that can be worn long and layered, wrapped or even knotted. A lariat necklace has a design of its own; unlike traditional necklaces it has a lariat in place of a clasp, providing a lot of flexibility for styling. Very versatile, an endless strand or lariat style necklace can be worn several different ways to create or complete your look. Wear it long or short, wrap it around to layer, or drape the ends down your back to accent an open or low-back outfit. You can also wear the lariat style necklace as a belt for an alternative vibe.

3. Interchangeable pendants or charms

A versatile set of earrings with interchangeable charms complements multiple outfits, and changing out the charms is a breeze. For example, a set of filigree hoops can be worn alone or you can swap out the charms for four unique looks. The same versatility can be achieved with one chain and multiple pendants to create the look of extra necklaces without the extra baggage.

4. Stackable bracelets and rings

Want a fashion-forward jewelry look for your next trip? Layering and stacking is a trend everyone loves and is perfect for creating different styles with minimal effort. Choosing stackable bracelets enables you to vary your look from minimalist to fully layered — and everything in between. It's easy to mix and match to create different styles. For rings, layer them on one finger or spread them across multiple fingers to transform your look from daytime to evening or one event to the next.

5. Consider alternative jewelry

Depending on your trip and what excursions you have planned, you may be tempted to bring your best tennis bracelet or gemstone pendant, but to keep jewelry safe, consider options that create the same high fashion look for less. Also, if you’re headed to the beach, consider leaving your diamond ring secured at home and wear a Bella Luce ring in its place.

As always, the JTV experts recommend transporting your jewelry in a travel-proof jewelry roll for safekeeping. For more tips and to explore versatile jewelry styles, visit https://www.jtv.com/traveltips.
