Ross Mathews Pre Red Carpet Interview with Twisted’s Designer

Afraid to wear statement jewelry? Debra Mitchell (Twisted Silver designer) and Ross Mathews (Academy Awards red carpet correspondent) say don’t make that mistake!  In an impromptu “pre-red carpet” interview at the Oscar suites this week, Ross says:

“If you’re wearing jewelry and no one notices it, I think it’s a mistake. Unless it’s sentimental, I think it’s a mistake.”

Watch the clip here:

Be sure to catch Ross Mathews on E! as he covers celebrity fashion at the Academy Awards red carpet this Sunday, February 26 at 1:30pm ET/10:30am PT (live to both coasts) alongside Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana Rancic, George Kotsiopoulos and more.

A Twisted Spring: The Ballerina Bun

Effortlessly chic, the ballerina bun is a fixture on the runways and the red carpet — and a must for cheering in the spring season.  Messy, romantic (and super easy!) the ballerina bun is perfect for showcasing earrings of all types.  Check out “Hot in My Salon,” a featured vid on StyleList, will give you the how-to for this insta-look.

Contrast the feminine romance of the ballerina bun with edgy chain like the Horse Bit convertible (worn as a belt of necklace).  Or go the complimentary route keeping it sweet and simple with Pansy earrings or Whistle necklace.

A Twisted Spring: A Great Jacket

3/4 sleeve jackets are made for bracelets.

Really, you should always buy pieces that can be worn multiple ways, and there’s nothing that fits the bill better than a great jacket.  Whether it’s structured with military styling or a slouchy boyfriend blazer, a great jacket takes you from shorts-with-tights to skinny jeans to office skirt with a shrug of your shoulders.

Here’s the cool part: this season we’re seeing lots of 3/4 sleeves and cuff-able or push-up-able sleeves.  That means stack up the bracelets!

The jackets out there are austere-minimalist and masculine, so feminine bracelets like Broach (shown below) add a balanced contrast… and keep you away from being extra dude. Snap bracelet (shown to right) is perfect for rocker enhancement.

A Twisted Spring: Layered Neck Chains & Color-Blocking

Color blocking is the IT thing, from eye-popping jewel tones ala Katy Perry on the cover of Elle’s March issue, to a lesson in neutrals in Reed Krakoff’s leather snake skin tote.  If you’d like to ease into the trend, try wearing mostly black and white solids broken up with a print.

So what about jewelry?  Solid colors are a study in simplicity, and nothing pairs better than mixed metal chains.  Wear a layer of varying lengths.

Twisted Must-Haves: Patchwork necklace and Contessa necklace (wear it double for short, open it up for long)
