Whether it’s designer clothes, accessories, or even home furnishings, mixing high and low is always more interesting than matching similar pieces because of the unexpected contrast it provides. Imagine wearing an intricately beaded designer skirt with combat boots, or positioning a gilt-framed painting by a worn-out wooden bench–surprising yet chic! This heirloom diamond and sapphire tennis bracelet, for example, is elegant (if a little old-fashioned) on its own, but it gets a much needed fashion-boost and gains street credibility when thrown together with wooden beads and a native ikat weave into an eclectic mix.
What do you think of mixing high and low? Would you try it out? 🙂
