Style Bee - Look 14 - Claire Green

Sometimes it’s really fun to mix fabrics I wouldn’t normally put together, like this cashmere sweater and these linen pants. For some reason this time of year seems perfect for pairing textures I don’t typically associate with the same season. So I decided to give it a try during a recent warm spell and loved the result, which is a ridiculously soft, lightweight look that’s not too springy and not too wintery either. A mixed material bucket bag and a minimal statement necklace add some interest and structure to the look without taking over and as always my Mars ankle boots add a pop of warmth. This is one of those looks I’ll be coming back to a lot as the temps fluctuate and I just want to be comfy and cozy all day long, without succumbing to sweatpants and hoodies.

It’s pretty nuts  how much impact a little thing like a necklace an have on an outfit isn’t it? It can totally change the tone of a look and for someone that’s working on keeping her closet lean, it’s key to have a good line-up of accessories to mix in. That’s one reason why I love discovering new jewelry designers and finding pieces that add that perfect touch without going overboard.

Claire Green is one of my latest jewelry designer crushes for sure. I just love the shapes and textures she creates and the way she mixes materials. All the pieces in the collection are made by hand in her Portland, Oregon studio and each one has a simple elegance with a touch of surprise, whether it’s in the stones Claire chooses or the unexpected but beautiful way she pairs shapes and texture. I’ve been a long time admirer of her work on Instagram and am thrilled to be partnering with Claire to host a fabulous giveaway of one of her stunning pieces. See below for entry details.

  2. Angela says:

    Wow! I may have found a new shop for jewelry; I’ve always been quite particular (waited until I was 26 to get my ears pierced) about my accessories, but the whole Claire Green line is gorgeous. I have to pick just one? I keep going back to the Sextile Studs.

  3. THANK YOU to everyone for your lovely comments and entries for this giveaway. It was wonderful to see so much love for Claire Green’s work. I knew you’d love her as much as I do! The winner selected at random is Emma Lavelle, congrats! xo

  15. Katie says:

    I’m in a challenging career, but this is by far the most difficult decision I’ve made all week! Everything Claire Green is MAGIC. My favorite (besides everything) is the Idol necklace. I’d wear it with everything.

  16. Mythri Viswanathan says:

    What a beautiful collection! I love the mercury stacking rings just the right cross between delicate and geometric.

  17. Agga says:

    Love the outfit, elegant, timeless and effortlessly stylish! It’s hard to pick just one piece of jewelry from Claire Green as its all rather epic but I do love the reservoir cuff and studs in lapis, MAGICAL !!

  18. Sana says:

    That pool necklace is so dreamy! Would be a wonderful birthday present for me! Love locally made jewelry.

  26. Emily Yang says:

    Love the Oasis Collar!

  27. Elysia says:

    Wow. Her pieces are so amazing that it’s hard to pick a favorite. Loving the Oasis collar in both lapis and white howlite although I think the lapis edges out the howlite for me. The Trine cuff is probably a close third!

  28. Susyolivia says:

    I’m in love with the oasis collar in turquoise <3

  29. Carla Walsh says:

    Love your outfits and I Love everything Claire has made. !
    I love ???? The custom white marble goodness necklace. Or the Venus necklace

  30. Brianna Mintz says:

    Oasis collar in white howlite- all the way. I love the clean, dramatic lines and the shorter length. Most of the necklaces I wear are long, so this necklace would be a fun way to get out of my routine! I would love to wear this with a plain black linen dress to a spring or summer event.

  31. Tricia Sevier says:

    I love the Idol Stacking Rings.

  32. Anna says:

    How beautiful! I love the sextile sextile studs.

  34. Inês G. says:

    I love love love the Reservoir studs!! Love simple earrings like that. And love this look!

  35. Stephanie says:

    Claire Green is also a favourite of mine – I found her once on the Instagram explore page and have followed her ever since (similar to your own IG account). The simplicity and beauty of the pieces always catches my attentions. The idol necklace is beautiful and would pair so great with my own style of clothing. Thanks for this opportunity!

    Steph 🙂

  36. Claudia says:

    As everyone has already noted, it is difficult to chose just one as a favourite, but I guess that’s what a favourite is – the best of all of them. So I think I’d go with the Oasis ring in turquoise. Thanks for this opportunity!

  37. Eleanor says:

    Love the Oasis Ring in Howlite!!

  38. Kat says:

    So hard to pick! Took me a good 10 minutes to narrow it down 🙂 She has beautiful pieces, simple and original. So I think my favourite is the Oasis Collar with the lapis stone. But Caravan collar and Taurus necklace are a close second! The Oasis just seems so elegant and feminine though. Your black sweater brings the necklace out really well too.

  68. georgine BOSAK says:

    How is your Everlane cashmere holding up? I have two cashmere v-necks and they are fuzzy and a little pill-y. If you have any advice on how to care for them, I would appreciate it. I don’t want to replace my sweaters every year – I have tried so many brands from $$ to $$$$ and they are wear poorly. I use a lint brush to help with the fuzz and pills. I do have alpaca sweaters, those do seem to wear better – but I love my cashmere v-necks and would love for them to last and last.

    • Hey Georgine! My Everlane cashmere has been holding up pretty well. I have a couple tricks to keep it in good condition. 1. Only Dry Clean once or at most twice a season. I wear them at least 10+ times before dry cleaning. It’s hard on the fibres and I’ve found it causes them to fray and fluff easier. 2. I use a razor to remove pilling once it happens. Just gently run the razor on the surface to slice off the little bumps. I avoid lint rollers as they pull at the fibres. Here are a few other options. I don’t have much experience with Alpaca but I’ve heard only really positive things about it. I hope that helps! xo

  69. Shy says:

    Love the oasis collar in turquoise. Everything is absolutely gorgeous though. Almost makes me want to pierce my ears!

  70. Courtney says:

    Hi Lee,

    Love the outfit. I just snagged a pair of linen pants similar to yours and I can’t wait for Philly to warm up a bit so I can wear them! I am a Taurus like you, so naturally I love the Taurus Necklace.

    Thanks for introducing us to this great maker!

  71. Heather E. says:
