Remember when silver jewelry in middle and high school was everything? I remember getting a Tiffany heart chain bracelet at my Bat Mitzvah and thought it was just the greatest thing ever. For the years to come, I wore silver non stop.
Then I switched back to gold and I probably will never go back to silver jewelry again. I know never say never, but I think jewelry is so personal and once you curate your personal pieces, they just stay forever.
But when it comes to silver shoes, bags and other fun fashion accessories, I am 100% in. Like, all in. And I’m just as shocked as you are about it.
How To Wear The Silver Trend For 2023
Wear With Neutrals
When in doubt, wear your silver with neutrals. Today’s outfit is the perfect example of how to wear the silver trend with neutrals. Pair it with denim (which to me will always be a neutral when it comes to outfits) and a simple white top.
You can also wear with cream, or wear it with all black. It’s simple, easy and you can’t go wrong.
Be Careful With All Black
While I am team black top with jeans and a silver shoe or bag, I am a bit weary when it comes to a head to toe black outfit with a pop of silver. It definitely gives off a vibe or holiday party, or a clubbing outfit.
Pair With Casual Things
I think one of the fun ways to style the silver metallic trend is to wear it casually. Styling a silver loafer with straight leg jeans and a cozy sweater is a casual way to try this trend.

Remember, Silver Is A Neutral!
I think we tend to overthink things when it comes to fashion. Especially when a new color trend comes around. Wearing silver is not some new thing. Many of us are wearing a metallic of some sort with our jewelry. So we know gold or silver goes with our outfits. We wear the jewelry with it!
So remember that silver really is a neutral at the end of a day. It can be paired with bold colors, and neutrals, with prints, and solids. I’ve styled it with red sweaters, jewel tones, earth tones, you name it. Look at it the same as you do your silver or gold jewelry.
Try Matching With Silver Shoes And Bag
You may be wondering if you can wear silver shoes and a silver bag at the same time. And yes, you 100% can pair them together. I think it actually pulls the outfit together. This especially feels very cool and fashion forward when styled with a casual cool look.
Pairing a silver bag with a casual look is a fun juxtaposition. We’re so used to a metallic handbag being paired with nice evening outfits. But not anymore!
Mix Your Jewelry
I’m never going to take my gold jewelry off. And I think this outfit is proof that it’s totally fine to keep your gold jewelry on if you want. You can mix metals and have fun with it! But you can also lean into the silver jewelry trend, below are some of my favorite pieces.
