We all know that jewelry can transform your outfit and give you confidence, but the truth is that with so many combinations and possibilities, it can be tough to know how to style it in the right way. Below, we’ve put together six pieces of advice that will help you on your way.
One of the best ways to make your jewelry look its best is to create layers with contrasting shapes, textures, lengths, and colors. Earrings can also be layered but you must be careful not to overload your ears, or draw attention away from your face. For bracelets, experiment twitch different colors and styles but make sure you don’t jingle – unless you want to, of course! As for rings, mix and match in a combination that works for you. Once you find a style that complements your outfits and personality, take a picture so you can recreate it.
Express yourself with personal pieces
Jewelry and accessories have never been cheaper, but you should not cut corners when you are styling yourself. As well as some fashion-based pieces, make sure you add in a personal item or two that means something special to you. Whether it’s your partner’s name engraved onto a ring or a Celtic cross pendant on a chain to express your religion, there are so many ways that you can create an attractive, modern design that only you can pull off. Go bold!
Don’t overdo it
Although we’re encouraging you to add as many of your pieces as you can, we should also warn you not to overdo it with your jewelry. If you’re already layering necklaces to draw more attention to your chest and face, you don’t need to add a whole boatload of bangles to your arm at the same time. The idea is to use jewelry to accentuate only one part of your look – if you’ve got different pieces fighting for attention, the chances are it’ll look too busy.
Think about earrings
It’s easy to fall back on the same earrings day in, day out, but changing them is a good way to add more excitement to your outfits and take you from daytime into eveningwear. It’s also important to give your ear jewelry a good clean – buy the right solution and don’t overlook this important step. For daytime, small stud earrings always work well, whereas if you want to add some drama to your outfit, choose pieces that dangle and jingle, provided they match.
Decide where the focus should lie
If you only take away one piece of advice from this article let it be this: decide where you want the focus of your outfit to be, and stick to it. Even the most basic of outfits can be given a whole new vibe with a chunky necklace or a watch, so accessorize and bring out the best.
Don’t chase the trends
The truth is that most jewelry will stay in fashion for decades on end, so stop chasing trends and spending a fortune on expensive pieces that you’re only going to wear once or twice. The best way to avoid trend-chasing is to figure out a jewelry style that’s compatible with your lifestyle and personality and stick to it. Whenever you add something new to your jewelry collection, make sure it works for the outfits you already have in your wardrobe.
