Jewellery is one thing that has been around for centuries, way before fashion gurus taught us how to wear it. Ancient people used jewellery not only as fashion pieces, but to signify their status as well. Throughout the years, more and more people from all walks of life used jewellery not to cement their place in society but as fashion pieces to spice up their outfits. Necklaces, bracelets, rings and the like are excellent gift options for loved ones. You can give them pieces that have sentimental meaning to them, such as personalised handprint jewellery. You can own a number of jewellery items that you can pass on to the next generation as an heirloom. But how should you really wear jewellery? Here are some dos and don’ts you can follow.
You don’t have to wear every single ring that you own in one go. Don’t go overboard and wear rings on all ten fingers. One or two, three at the most, should be enough to spice up your look. If you love wearing rings, you can choose dainty, thin and small ones which you can stack for a statement. You can layer necklaces and bracelets several pieces at a time, but don’t use more than five at once. Necklaces should be of different lengths so each of them can have their own space on your neck and chest. Do not wear several chunky bracelets together. Thin chains and bangles are the best.
Mix and match
You need not wear the same combinations of jewellery all the time. You can try mixing and matching pieces that will complement your outfit. You can also add a pop of colour to your jewellery, such as a bracelet with colourful stones. The general rule is that if you are wearing bright and printed clothes, your jewellery should be as simple as possible, and vice versa.
Don’t overdo statement pieces
Statement pieces are big pieces of jewellery that attract attention. If you wear a statement piece, choose among these three: bracelet, necklace or ring. Do not wear a statement ring, a statement bracelet and a statement necklace all at once as you will look overdone and ruin your outfit.
Invest in classic and timeless pieces
It is okay to have the latest fashion jewellery, but you should also invest in timeless pieces that will never go out of style. Examples of these are diamond stud earrings, pearl necklaces and earrings, gold bangles, simple rings, pendant necklaces, chokers, etc. You can wear these pieces with virtually any outfit. You don’t have to think about if they will match because they will, every single time.
You can express your individuality, style and character with your jewellery. And you can wear just about anything you want. These pieces of advice are only here to guide you if you don’t have a clue on how best to wear jewellery, and you want a little bit of fashion help. It is also a good idea to have different types of jewellery that you can wear with any outfit.
