10. Scene stealers
Many of today’s modern clothes have a neutral palette. Dark suits, off-white tops and grey dresses are the perfect backdrop for bold, colorful jewelry. A bold combination of metals and stones around your neck or dangling from your ears energizes any sophisticated look.
9. Express yourself
Often the best way to make a lasting impression is to let your personality shine with designs that say something about you. This means choosing pieces because they speak to you, not because they’re trendy. Then you have a genuine conversation starter. Love animal and nature-themed jewelry? Let that passion add sparkle to your outfit, literally.
8. In your hair
There are countless stunning ways to wear jewelry in your hair. Work a colorful beaded necklace into an elegant braid. Pin a ring around the base of a high pony tail, or drape a chain necklace around a clean bun. The colors and textures of precious gems and metals are a perfect contrast to soft, shiny hair.
7. Pile on the charm
Coco Chanel famously advised women to look in the mirror and take one thing off before leaving the house. Less is often more, but some special times call for a bit of excess. Go on and add one more bauble and personalized charm for good measure.
6. A seasonal accent
A single statement piece is all you need to give an outfit a seasonal makeover. Try stacking a wide metal cuff with a charm bracelet. Break out your favorite chunky necklace and layer it around your wrist with a beachy sea shell bracelet in summer. Opt for large white snowy beads in winter and delicate flowers in the spring.
Low necklines invite an elegantly layered look. Finding new ways to wear necklaces calls for care to be sure the designs will complement each other. Try chains of the same metal in different lengths to bring festive variation to a basic ensemble.
4. Frame your face
Of all the stunning ways to wear jewelry, using earrings to frame your face is something many women do without really thinking about it. Anyone who makes eye contact with you is going to see your earrings, so use this to your advantage. Wear earring studs that accentuate your eye color or glamorous metal dangles to reflect light.
3. Know when to tone things down
Accessories and clothes shouldn’t compete for attention. When you choose to wear clothing with a bold pattern, opt for minimal extras. Precious metal jewelry like large, simple ring or sculptural necklace adds an artistic touch that enhances vivid fabrics.
2. Borrow from the past
Vintage-inspired style never goes out of fashion. Browse through the trends of previous eras and it may start to feel like you were born in the wrong decade. The good news is you don’t have to live through prohibition to make a flapper’s splash with a wink and perfect round pearls.
1. With an edge
Popular Savings Offers
Things aren’t all sparkles and daintiness in the accessories department. Jewelry has many attitudes and edgy is most eye-catching. For some, this translates to black hearts and studded chokers or bracelets while others like their edge with a bit of subtlety. Just think how striking a white lace top would look with a spider broach, for instance.
