Tips for Wearing Jewelry

Wearing jewelry is an excellent way to liven up an outfit. It adds life to what you wear and helps complete the look. However, there are times when jewelry can also break an outfit. To make sure that you wear your accessories the right way, here are some things to keep in mind.

  • Keep it Simple- one reason that some people are not able to accessorize properly is because they tend to overdo it. You do not have to wear every single piece of jewelry that you own. Instead choose just a few pieces that will go well together. Remember that you want to look put together and not like a walking jewelry store.
  • Balance Things Out- make sure that your jewelry and you clothes go well together and do not compete with each other for attention. If you are wearing something bright, colorful or attention grabbing pair it with minimal or simple jewelry. On the other hand simple outfits go well with big and bold jewelry pieces.
  • Wear it the Right Way- certain pieces of jewelry look best when worn properly. For those with long necks dangling earrings are a great way to draw attention to your face and neck area. As for those who are on the heavy side large studs are the way to go. When it comes to necklaces wear longer ones with clothing that have higher necklines. Plunging necklines on the other hand look best with necklaces that are just below the collar bone.
