Jewelry – Bringing In Style

by: Bridget P. Allen

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend then jewelry is her soul sister! Jewelry is such a powerful accessory that many choose one fabulous piece and build an outfit around it. You can ruin a perfectly great outfit by wearing the wrong jewelry.

Before we get into what and how to where jewelry there are some no-nos that you should be aware of. Relax – these are too tough to follow!

Don’t overdo it with jewelry. Keep it simple. Wear no more than one big piece such as earrings or necklace.

Don’t wear an ankle bracelet or toe ring with a dressy outfit. It can look trashy.

Limit the number of rings. Wear chunky rings alone.

For after hours events, replace your basic day jewelry with more festive pieces.

Now for the good stuff. Here’s what you can do with jewelry.

It’s takes a confident person to wear bold jewelry. Going bold is great and screams “I’m okay with standing out in the crowd and I want everyone to know it!” What it shouldn’t do is over-accessorize the wrong outfit. Don’t wear prints with big and bold jewelry. Sleek all black or all white are perfect with colorful jewelry.

Learn to mix metals. It’s not taboo to gold with gold and silver. Just remember to keep the style of jewelry the same. Stacking square or round bangles in different shades of gold and silver is fine. You can even layer gold and silver necklaces for a modern look.

Wear the right length necklace. Wearing the wrong necklace can through any outfit out of kilter. Here are some simple guidelines for getting it right. V-neck, boat-neck and off the shoulder tops look great with collar necklaces. Chokers are great with strapless or plunging necklines. The most common length is between 17-19 inches. This can be worn with most necklines except high ones. Plunging necklines look great with a necklace length of 20-24 inches. Very high necklines are perfect for 28-34 inch necklace. This length can also be doubled for a multi-strand look.
