5 Tips to Styling Jewellery
1. There are no rules!
Fashion and jewellery are ways for each person to express their unique style. Contrary to popular belief, there are no rules, no guidebooks, and no limitations. Don’t let other people’s opinions affect the way you want to express your style. Allow yourself to dress and accessorize in any way that makes you feel the most confident. Always remember that fashion is subjective, not objective. Each person has a unique style that only they can curate. Make your closet and jewellery box a collection of pieces that you adore! The prettiest accessory a girl can wear is a smile and anything beyond that is just extra.
Layering is a crucial aspect of styling jewellery. Experiment with necklaces of different lengths and different combinations of bracelets and bangles. The same pieces can be mixed and matched to create many different jewellery looks. You don’t need 100 pieces in your collection to look stylish, you just need a little creativity. To make layering necklaces simpler, choose one statement necklace and combine it with 1 or 2 simpler chains. This pairing will accessorize your statement piece perfectly.
3. Mixing metals
The new trend of mixing metals in jewellery is taking the fashion world by storm. You can mix your favorite pieces together to create a balanced look! Combine a silver pendant and a gold chain to make a perfect mixed-metal necklace. One of the most popular ways to mix metals is to combine gold, silver, rose gold, and even gunmetal bracelets! The taboo tip of sticking to one metal is gone and a whole world of mixing metals has replaced it.
4. Don’t restrict yourself to trends
Trends come and go faster than we can keep up. Closely following trends will cause you to constantly change your style. This can be tedious and quite expensive. Instead of trying to keep up with ever-changing trends, stick to fashion ideas that you like. It is much better to invest in timeless pieces than to buy jewellery based on what will be popular for the next few months. Always remember that in a world full of trends, it's better to be a classic.
5. Know your focus
Jewellery is meant to accentuate your outfit, but not overtake it. It is crucial to choose a focus for each outfit and accessorize accordingly. If you want to wear your new sparkly top and bright shoes, then it is probably best to choose a simple jewellery look to compliment it. In contrast, if you want to show off your new chunky necklace, choosing a simpler top allows it to be the focus. Decide on your focus piece first and the rest of the look is easy to create!
