When it comes to fashion, and most specifically, jewelry, everyone has their own personal style. In essence, fashion is completely subjective- what one person may like, another may not.
In today’s world, there is a bigger drive than ever to express yourself through fashion and jewelry. It’s a chance to make your very own personal statement about who you are.
But if the idea of wearing the right type of jewelry every day intimidates you, there’s no need. Here’s how to wear jewelry that represents who are and completely own it…
Jewelry trends come and go, but there are a few jewelry pieces that seem to have stood the test of time. Some of these include a classic pair of diamond studs, pearl earrings, a simple gold pendant, and the iconic pearl necklace.
While these are more sentimental jewelry pieces, how do you go about styling more eccentric or statement items of jewelry on a daily basis?
Check out these seven simple tips:
A great way to spice up an everyday outfit and make use of some of your favorite jewelry pieces is with layering. But remember that there’s a fine line between looking trendy and tacky.
When it comes to necklaces, experiment with contrasting lengths. But remember to stick to one or two types of metals, max. Mixing too many metals tends to clash.
The same goes for earrings. If you have more than one piercing, the trend these days is to stack your earrings by mixing different shapes and sizes.
Bangles and bracelets are also super simple to layer. You can have a little more fun here and even mix up the textures and materials of your bracelets. Just be careful not to go overboard. You want to avoid the daily distraction of jingling bangles for both you and your colleagues.
Gather up a collection of necklaces and pendants in different lengths, textures, and styles. Try layering then in different combinations to see what works and what doesn’t.
When it comes to layering your jewelry, it’s important to pick one style and go with that. Layering necklaces with earrings and bangles at all at once can start to look a little more distracting than fashionable. In other words, you don’t want your jewelry to compete for attention!
The principles are simple, really. If you’re layering up your necklaces, stick to more simple earrings. If you’re wearing a stack of earrings, opt for a simple pendant necklace.
As Coco Chanel once recommended: ”Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory.“ In essence, know when enough is enough.
You may be in the habit of wearing the same earrings day in and day out.
But your earring choice says so much more about you than you think. They’re also in the direct field-of-vision for anyone talking to you. Ultimately, they help to frame your face and complement your eye, hair, and skin tone.
With this in mind, it’s important to carefully consider what earrings you choose on a daily basis and what they say about you, your mood, and your personality.
A pro tip? If you have long hair, choose a metal finish that is contrasting to your hair color so that your earrings are a little more noticeable.
But if you’re interested in mixing up your looks a bit and showcasing the beautiful jewelry you do own, pick out your pieces the night before. Once you’ve done that, lay them out in a noticeable spot so that you remember to put each piece on in the morning, before you leave the house.
Takes some time and go through your jewelry collection to see what you own and what fits in with your personal style. If you’ve outgrown certain pieces, simply donate or sell them so that they’re not clogging up your collection.
Okay, so not everyone may agree with the sin of mixing metals when it comes to jewelry. But it’s a trend that has found popularity in recent years.
But the key is to start off slow. If you feel like layering up your necklaces, opt for two different colored necklaces to start. The same goes for rings and bracelets.
Stick to mixing just two different colored metals as well, such as silver and gold or rose gold and yellow gold.
You can even match your mixed metal jewelry with tones in your outfit for a cohesive, on-trend look.
This concept is especially important for your day-to-day outfits, whether you’re heading into to work, going for brunch, or running errands.
Choose a focus for your overall outfit: is it going to be your clothes or your jewelry and then build on that.
If you’re planning on showcasing new pieces of jewelry such as a beautiful layered necklace or earrings, opt for a simple, chic outfit. Otherwise, if you want to bring a simple outfit to life, go for a statement necklace and earrings.
On the flip side, if you’re wearing a very colorful or patterned outfit, it may be best to stick to simple, fine jewelry. This way, neither item is competing for attention.
Essentially, you should ask yourself what you want people to look at when you choose your jewelry pieces on a day-to-day basis.
If you have an area of your body you’re perhaps self-conscious about, you can use jewelry to distract from that region. For example, if you have a bigger bust, use bold, statement earrings to create a focal point.
Now that you have a better idea of how to wear jewelry on a daily basis, why not build on your collection?
