Looking good isn't always easy. There is so much to think about. What with beauty treatments and fashion, sometimes we forget about our jewellery. But accessories like jewellery can have a massive impact on your look.
Check out these do's and don'ts to help you wear your jewels the right way.
Do match the metals
As a rule, it's best not mix your metals so that mean gold and silver should not be worn together. Keep jewelry, all the same, metal looks classier and gives you a more put-together look. There are lots of metal shade to choose from now like platinum and rose gold, so you are not limited to just the usual gold and silver. Just make sure you don't en duo wearing them all.
Don't wear too much
Some people have a tendency to over accessorize! As Coco Chanel said, 'look in the mirror and take one accessory off.' A few quality items are always better than load and loads of cheap rubbish!
That bring me on to my next point. Do invest in a few good items of jewelry that are versatile. A pair of diamond earrings. Some solid gold sleepers and a few nice rings can set off any outfit and will stand you in good stead.
Don't wear the wrong style necklace
Remember that wherever your necklace lands, that is where the eye is drawn to. So make sure that you are bringing attention the parts of your body that you want to emphasize.
Do experiment with fashion
Fashion changes so quickly these days it hard to keep up. That's why if you are going for specialty fashion pieces rather than classic items, it's ok to go with costume jewelry.
For example, if you want to try the latest trend like multiple finger rings, it's much more cost-effective to go for fashion jewelry. It also means that you don't have to worry if you don't like the look or just wear it with a few outfits.
Don't buy cheap
Even when you are buying costume jewelry, don't go for the cheapest you can find. You can spot a plastic rhinestone from a mile away! As costume jewels are often large and make a statement, it's really easy to tell if they are not good quality. So spend a few extra dollars to make sure it looks as classy as the rest of you.
Do enjoy your jewelry
Just like your clothes, no matter what size and shape you are, you should enjoy what you're wearing. If you don't enjoy it, then it's just not worth displaying it on your body. So make sure you are in love with every piece before your open your purse to buy it!
