Every girl loves jewelry, right? And with good reason – jewelry is one of the best and easiest ways to add something extra to an outfit. Having said that, there are a few important rules to follow – like not overdoing it!
Easy to say, but how do you know when you are overdoing it? To answer that, you need to consider the pieces of jewelry that you are planning to combine. It is best to have one main piece that you wear, and then smaller pieces (if any) chosen to complement your main drawcard. That’s not to say at all that you can’t wear a selection of your favorite pieces, just that you should choose to emphasize and show off one piece at a time.
Lets look at some examples. Say you want to wear a complex, ornate silver necklace. It would be wise to pair this up with simple stud earrings, so that your whole face isn’t obscured by sprouting jewelry. You do want people to notice your face, don’t you? A slightly different strategy is to combine multiple simple pieces as your ‘focal point’.
You could wear several chains that are similar in design, or a whole bunch of slender bracelets.
By following these tips, you will be able to use your jewelry as a draw card that doesn’t take too much attention away from the features you also want to be noticed. Taking this one step further, consider where you want to focus attention and use these tips strategically.
Some pieces of jewelry can obscure contours, and some can draw attention to your best areas. Plan wisely, and you will be the talk of any event you grace with your presence!
