5 DAYS, 5 LOOKS | Arpil 20, 2022
5 days, 5 looks - accessories edition!
Over at APM HQ, we’re living vicariously through all the people attending the cool events going on around the world right now. Naturally, this means we haveimagined what many (many!) of our looks would be, were we to be attending. Each monthly APM collection captures a world of its own which makes the jewels really fun to play around with.
April is also the month of the first sign of the zodiac! If there’s ever a moment when anything can happen, it’s during Aries season! The Ram is out to play (and work hard!) and we’re loving the energy in the air right now…Motivation, ambition, drive, passion. Basically, this is your sign to truly get after it and act on the fire you have within! Chase your goals, love hard, embrace all the emotions…
Here are 5 very different looks, for 5 very different days.
Look 1 - Tennis Rolex Masters @ Monte Carlo Country Club, Monaco
The annual Tennis Rolex Masters is historic in Monaco, it is one of the rare events that has remained somewhat untouched over the course of the years. This is the reason why it holds such a special place in the hearts of the locals who attend. To us, watching a sporting event is a close match (pun intended!) to that of attending a concert. There is something special and really fun about watching someone/something you admire without distractions, performing at their peak. Don’t you agree? At the Rolex Masters, it helps that the sportsmen are easy on the eyes, the people watching is stellar, and chances are, you are sitting among the elite of Monaco and those who’ve flown in especially for the occasion.
Of course, it’s also an opportunity for us to show UP with our look…For this occasion, we’re layering the Black Agate Necklace atop the choker-style Black Nylon Ring Necklace. We’re matching our bracelet game too, with a stack of Chain Link Neon Nylons, and a Chain Link Neon earring for good measure! For an extra statement we’ve chosen the mini Mana tote (it's the perfect size, just in case we manage to bring a tennis ball home with us ;)) Jewelry, but make it sporty? Check!
Look 2- Coachella Festival @ Palm Springs / Indio, California
We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: Attending the Coachella Festival is a cardio workout. Hear us out. It’s a full weekend of standing on your feet all day, walking, if not running, long distances from stage to stage trying to catch your favorite performers, and of course dancing and singing your heart out! The fun makes it all worth it, but we’ve also hacked the Coachella science.
Listen up, festival people, this is the secret: go low key on the clothing and high key on the accessorizing and let the jewels do the work! If your jewelry and accessories game is on point it’s likely you’ll have more fun and be more comfortable at the same time! Here’s our day 1 lineup: we’re doing Mana statements left, right, and center! We want Rainbow Pavé layers everywhere. On day 2, we’re doing a classic serpent moment. We love to mix & match the Serpents in both Néon and Silver tones to create an eye-catching look. We’re adding these accessories to denim cutoff shorts and a classic white tank! How easy was that? It’s what we call “reverse styling” and removes any Coachella outfit pressure; try it out! Now you can focus on just enjoying the music and your friends!!
Look 3 - Boat Day @ wherever your heart desires
Une Après Midi À La Plage…literally! We’re wishing everyone many sun-soaked days ahead! For tan line purposes, we usually prefer to keep our jewels minimal (for the most part) when on a boat day or anywhere a swimming suit would be required. However, especially when we’re wearing monochromatic tones or color-blocking, we love an earring moment, a chunky yellow silver hoop in particular! Thankfully, we have many to choose from. The Classic Pavé or Chunky Batik Hoops from Mana, the Large Roma and Lumière Hoops are also a solid option for us. Picture this, wet hair, hoop layers, and bronzy skin… It doesn’t get much better! Our swimwear of choice these days is any cool high-waisted bikini or 90s style one piece! Wondering where to pack it all? Our Lumière tote bag fits it all (snacks included)! The fun in the sun can now begin.
Look 4 - A day of work @ wherever your heart desires
Not to break up the week of fun, but at this point, a day of meetings and office work seems necessary…remember, we’re tapping into that productive April energy! At work, you can catch us in the tried and true Croisette collection. We love to contrast the classic silhouettes with some Collection Up and Down Zig Zag jewels, a discreet yet noticeable twist to a chic and dainty pavé chain. Accessorizing your work attire is made easy with these touches that will add the extra sparkle to add some pleasure to your business. Show them you can walk the walk and talk the talk!
Look 5 Date night @ wherever your heart desires
Whether it’s a casual affair or a rendez-vous that requires dressing up, Collection Morse is the way to go. That’s what we love about it, it’s always appropriate, timeless, and works for both him & her. Jewels that whisper, rather than scream, I love you, baby…That’s what we love to hear. There’s also nothing wrong with jewelry that is a little louder. Why not pick a piece with a red heart detail for date night?
Yes, it’s a more obvious option, just like a LBD (Little Black Dress) might be, but both almost always work out for us! Will it be the Valentine Red Heart earrings or something more subtle like the Chain Link Robot Heart earring? Or maybe you’ll find the black nylon necklace with intertwined rings quite symbolic and special for the occasion. There’s also a daintier chain version that you can hook one of our clippable medals onto; your date mate’s initial perhaps? Remember to tag us in your looks so we can see what you come up with during the fun days of April!
We’d love to get inspired by you, too!
