Why We Love The Boho Chic Appeal of Midi Rings
19th November 2018
Midi rings are extremely popular at the moment – and with their beautiful but barely there appeal we can totally see why. This article identifies why we love midi rings and offers some styling suggestions to help you pull off the trend with ease.
What is a midi ring?
A midi ring is a piece of jewellery worn on the finger just above the lower knuckle. The trend rose to prominence in 2016 whilst adorning various models on catwalks that year and has remained popular ever since. In 2018 many bloggers/fashion thought leaders are opting for a more minimal approach when it comes to their jewellery choices.
If you’re intimidated by the thought of wearing a midi ring – don’t be! The concept may seem like something that should only be donned by bohemian hipsters – but we assure you that’s not the case! Most midi rings on the market are notably subtle and can easily be paired with other jewellery – so you can experiment and get a feel for the look before committing to wearing lots at once.
Midi rings combine two major current style trends – the comeback of dainty pieces and the increasing popularity of more unusual styling (think mismatched earrings and mixing rose gold with silver.)
How to make midi rings look fabulous!
When tastefully worn midi rings can add amazing creative flare to an outfit. Below are three things to consider when introducing the midi ring into your look.
- Find the right size. The biggest trick to wearing midi rings comfortably is to find the right size. As the rings can rest at various different places on the finger they need to fit accurately to avoid the feeling of ‘is it going to fall off?’ Measure your finger first and make sure your new purchase won’t be too loose before you hit ‘add to basket.’
- Treat yourself to a manicure! At Lucy Quartermaine we’re all for any excuse to indulge in a little pampering. Some of the most enviable midi ring shots on Pinterest look great because of how the jewellery looks against a glossy (or matte) nail polish. We love pastel shades and minimal nail art at the moment.
- Less is more – Keep it simple. Experiment with stackable styles across the fingers. We love playing around with lots of different widths and textures and arranging the pieces into shapes and lines.
We’ve been advocated of this jewellery style for some time now and really do believe that these elegant little bands are an easy accessory to make your fingers look extra special. Shop our collection that features, silver midi rings, gold vermeil midi rings and rose gold vermeil midi rings.
