Jewellery can be a fantastic way to accent your clothing and accessorize your outfits, but it’s actually fairly challenging to start wearing jewellery if you’re not used to it. Perhaps you’re starting to build a jewellery collection thanks to gifts from friends and family members, or maybe you’re looking to transform your clothing with something a bit different and new. Either way, we understand that it can be a little daunting to start wearing jewellery, so here are a couple of tips to help you out.
Don’t think too hard with jewellery–wear what makes you feel comfortable
You shouldn’t think too hard when it comes to jewellery. Wearing a necklace or ring isn’t a huge deal and can add a unique touch to any outfit. Gold and silver jewellery is typically the best because the colours go well with anything you wear. You can generally mix and match whatever styles you want, but if you do have jewellery with different colours such as red rubies or blue topaz, then you can try to complement them by wearing clothes that help them stand out.
Don’t forget about jewellery on your face
If you’re not used to wearing jewellery then you probably don’t have any piercings. However, if you do then you could always consider wearing different kinds of earrings. Other facial jewellery can include nose rings, lips rings, or even studs which are a lot smaller and subtle. There are also more unique jewellery options for the face such as zero gauge plugs from Urban Body Jewelry, though it can take a little while to get used to them and there’s a bit more investment involved than just putting on a piece of jewellery. With that said, it’s certainly a unique way to accessorize and can be the highlight of certain outfits.
Layering can help you create a more distinct style
One of the best ways to experiment with different patterns is to start layering. You can add different rings and necklaces and lay them on top of each other to create a unique style. You can wear multiple rings that don’t necessarily have to share the same style, and you can also layer different necklaces at different heights so that they don’t overlap with each other.
Know when you’re wearing too much jewellery
One of the most obvious signs of wearing too much jewellery is when it starts to get uncomfortable. If you’re wearing too many necklaces and it takes forever to remove them, or if you’re wearing multiple rings and it becomes hard to move those fingers, then you should probably wear a little less. In addition, jewellery tends to draw attention to those parts of the body where they’re being worn. If you’re wearing too many bangles then it draws attention to your arms but not the rest of your outfit, thus creating an imbalance that should be corrected. In short, try and spread your jewellery out around the body for a more consistent and pleasing style.
