Tips on Styling a Bolo Necklace
Finding accessories that can seamlessly carry your wardrobe from season to season can be a challenge. That's why we are so smitten with the Bolo. With strong connections to the American Southwest, Bolo tie necklaces are a classic accessory,. This versatile necklace can be styled in dozens of ways and transitions seamlessly from casual to sophisticated. Our Bolos consist of a hand-cut and hammered recycled brass pendant hanging from a length of tan or black suede cord. These unique necklaces are 100% handmade from repurposed materials in Nairobi, Kenya.
Here are our favorite ways to style them, paired with pieces from some of our favorite ethical brands:
While the warm weather lingers, soak up some sun! Wrap the Bolo several times around, creating a choker up top and allowing the length with the brass accent hang looser. This is a great way to add flair to a comfortable, casual outfit. We love to pair ours with a soft linen or organic cotton tee and a glass of lemonade on the porch. Take a peek at Alternative Apparel's comfy offerings like the Everyday Cotton Modal V-Neck T-Shirt.
Looking for a way to spice up your usual business casual? Layer - to beat those temperature changes! - a soft cashmere sweater over a camisole (we recommend The Clean Silk Cami and Cashmere Crew Cardigan from Everlane) and let this sweet piece do the rest with its gorgeous, bohemian flair.
Length & Luxury
Heading to the mountains for some apple picking? Wrap your Bolo necklace around just once, adding length and detail to a cozy sweater dress. We recommend this number, The Vee from our friends at Slumlove Sweater Co.
