Whether you are going out on a date or attending a client meeting, wearing jewellery shouldn’t be taken for granted.  Your outfit may by stunning but jewellery, even the simplest ones, will definitely complete the equation.  Find out how to wear jewellery and accessories with the right flair on any occasion.

Not too much or too little

One advice that never fails is to always view yourself in the mirror before going out and take off a piece of jewellery.  A famous icon in the fashion industry has said this time and again, emphasising that wearing too much accessory can be a mortal sin.  While you may have family heirlooms that you will want to wear every day for sentimental reasons, it doesn’t justify wearing it with every wardrobe.

Wearing too little or no jewellery at all is also a fashion no-no.  Your age, the type of work you do, or your simple laid-back lifestyle aren’t excuses for not experimenting or having fun with jewellery.

Consider your body shape

One strategy that works is to consider the shape of your body and use jewellery to your advantage.  This means, wearing jewellery to keep the beholder’s eyes focused on areas you want to emphasise or understate.  It also means choosing the right jewellery size that will look good based on your features.

Necklaces are flattering.  Make sure though that you experiment with the length.  The objective here is not to make your neck appear shorter.

A pair of earrings is another set of jewellery that’s divine to look at.  Consider the size of the stud you are wearing and ensure your ears don’t drown in them.  It is alright to wear a bigger pair but never wear one when you are attending a meeting with a client.  The reason behind this is that he will tend to focus on your jewellery instead of in your eyes and what you have to say.  You might have a hard time getting your proposition across.

A cuff-style bracelet is also a good fashion statement and it goes well with a shift dress.  Again, be smart enough to know when a cuff is good for you or not.  If it appears to cut the length of your arm, just drop it.

Choose colours that enhance your skin tone

While it’s important to match your jewellery with your wardrobe, do you know that the colour or type of jewellery you wear does have an impact on your skin tone?

Experiment with jewellery colours.  Whether it’s gold, rose gold, silver, sapphire, turquoise, or emerald, each of these will have a different effect on your skin tone.  Choose the colour that enhances your skin.

A lot of older women, prefer to wear silver metal jewellery but on the overall, gold toned pieces are versatile and certainly enhances almost any skin tone.

Wearing jewellery to enhance your wardrobe can be a challenge. These tips will help you hurdle it with flair.
