Jewelry has been a vital part of fashion for centuries. Some of the sophisticated rules and guidelines – jewelry etiquette – remained unchanged and are still in place today. All of these rules dictate the amount of the jewelry you should have on you at once. As a fashionista, you should know that one of the big fashion sins is jewelry overkill. That is why we are going to help you look stunning by enabling you to answer one simple question – “Am I wearing too much jewelry?”
JEWELRY ETIQUETTE – GENERAL GUIDELINES
The best way to start answering the question is to put on everything you’ve planned and to stand in front of the mirror. Close your eyes and picture yourself. Imagine how you planned to look
in the outﬁt you’ve chosen. Then, open your eyes. See if the jewelry you have adds or detracts from your look. We’re aware that you want to wear your favorite pieces of jewelry, but if it feels like too much, you should consider wearing it for some other occasion. Always go with the jewelry that complements your look and enhances your outﬁt.
STATEMENT JEWELRY ETIQUETTE
If you ﬁnd yourself particularly fond of statement jewelry, you should learn how to master wearing it. There is only one guideline to follow here – wear only one piece or a matching pair. Whether it is a bracelet with a necklace, or even just earrings, you‘ll have to decide which one item or collection to put on. Leave all other lush jewelry pieces at home.
THE ATTRACTIVE PAIRS
When in doubt, you can always go back to the rule of thumb – stick to pairs. Pair your necklace with a bracelet or earrings for an astonishing combo. Let your attire and hairstyle guide you through the decisions process. For instance, if you decide to wear your hair down, you may want to stay away from dangly earrings, as they can easily get in the way. And depending on the style of your outfit, you will have to choose between luxury statement, casual elegant, or dainty delicate jewelry pieces.
An oversized ring works perfectly well with breathtaking earrings. But make sure that the ring mimics the shape and color of your earrings. If you’re going out with a beautiful necklace on, earrings that match will do the job.
