Jewellery is a highly versatile accessory that can change the look of any outfit, or even turn a daytime outfit into something glamorous enough for evening. Accessorising is an art – the more you experiment with it, the more skilled you'll become. Try these four basic tips for accessorising with jewellery.
Try wearing one piece of statement jewellery.
Statement jewellery is something highly noticeable, such as a larger necklace or pair of earrings. If you wear both, they'll compete for attention, so choose one or the other and make it the focal point. The closer two statement pieces are to each other, the more “visual clutter” becomes a problem. If you are wearing a statement necklace, for example, and you’d also like to wear earrings, then choose small studs to complement the necklace without crowding it.
Choose pieces from the same colour tone.
If you want to wear multiple pieces of jewellery, such as a necklace, bracelet, earrings, and rings, all at once, the simplest and most attractive way to do so is to choose jewellery from the same colour tone. That doesn’t mean it all has to match; you can also choose metal tones such as gold, silver, and rose gold, which can be mixed and matched fairly easily and usually complement each other.
Consider the jewellery’s level of refinement.
Your jewellery can be classified according to its “glam factor” or level of dressiness or formalness. For example, jewellery appropriate for work will typically have cleaner lines and fewer details; formal evening jewellery will be more sparkly or have more details and "flash." In fact, you can wear the same outfit out for the evening that you wore to work; just bring along more glamorous jewellery, shoes, and handbag to dress up your look before you go out.
Try layering your jewellery.
Layering jewellery is a technique in which you wear multiple pieces of the same type of jewellery at once, such as a stack of bracelets or necklaces. This look can be striking and attractive when you choose pieces that complement each other, your other accessories, and the outfit you’re wearing. Try layering smaller, similar pieces, such as three small pendant chains of different lengths or several rings of similar colour, design, and size.
