Summary: Wearing one jewelry piece too many can make you stick out like a sore thumb.
If you walk down the street and look at what people are wearing, you’ll probably see 8 out 10 people wearing some type of jewelry piece. Some people can wear it well while others tend to go a bit overboard. This guide will detail how you can create a balance between simplicity and stylish without going too far.
Always Complement Your Attire
Jewelry is meant to accompany your outfit and add a bit of extra flair to what you’re wearing. Whether it’s religious jewelry or a simple pendant, it must blend seamlessly into your outfit – otherwise it’ll stick out like a sore thumb. One way you can do this is to never over-accessorize. Sure, wearing 5 to 6 rings and three necklaces might sound like a fun idea, but once you leave the house, it’s sure to raise a few eyebrows. Keep it light and keep it simple.
Casual Outfits Call for Casual Jewelry
Your everyday outfit calls out for an accessory that will make it feel “complete”. One way you can go about accomplishing this is to find a simple jewelry piece like a cross necklace or a thin gold or silver bracelet. For men, try utilizing leather, which portrays a rough, yet stylish, feel. It goes great with a pair of worn jeans and a simple top. Remember, the more layers you wear, the less your accessories will stand out, making them a bit redundant. However, don’t let this be an excuse to include more pieces as it’ll make you resemble a decorate Christmas tree – not ideal for a casual lunch with friends.
