How to Jewelry

Jewelry can make or break an outfit. It’s all about how you wear it.

Many of us have pieces of jewelry in our jewelry box that we never wear. Why? We don’t know what to do with it.

Well, if you are sick of looking at pieces of jewelry you love but never wear because you’re not sure how to style it, here are some tips that might get those items seeing the light of day.


Necklaces can complete an outfit, or ruin it.Necklaces are probably the most essential accessory and they also may be the hardest to wear.

To avoid making a fashion faux pas, determine whether your outfit needs a necklace at all. If your top has a busy print or a high neckline, it’s likely a necklace will just get in the way.

On the other hand, if your top is plain, it’s just begging for a necklace.

The length of the necklace will also be a consideration. If you are wearing a V- neck, U-neck or a button up that you are wearing unbuttoned, a shorter necklace will look good. If you have a crew neck or turtleneck opt for something longer.

These are good general rules, but they may vary from outfit to outfit. Feel free to experiment to find a look that works for you.

A bold statement necklace will also look good on a plainer top while something more subtle will be suitable for busier styles.


A bracelet doesn’t interfere as much with the line of your outfit so here, it’s more about supplementing your look.

If you’re going for a punk style, you can layer bracelets. But if you’re going for a more sophisticated look, keep bracelets minimal.

With the layered look being popular, many will combine more than one bracelet when wearing them on their wrist. It may be difficult to find a few that go together.

In general, you are safe pairing like with like. So, a few chain bracelets will look good together, bangles will complement each other and rope bracelets can go all the way up the wrist.


Rings are not very different from bracelets when considering how to style them.

Since they don’t interfere with the line of your outfit, it’s really about the look you’re going for. Chunky rings make a great alternative look while elegant rings are better for sophisticated formal occasions.

Like bracelets, rings can also be layered. Try layering thin rings together. Thick rings will not work as well in layered looks.


Earrings are another item that will not interfere with the line of your outfit. However, they do frame your face, and this can make finding the right ones tricky.

If you have a round or heart shaped face, you can give it a slimming look by wearing long, dangling earrings. If your face is long, opt for studs instead.

You should also consider the occasion you are wearing the earrings for. A formal occasion may call for diamond studs while you might want to bring out the hoops and bling for a night on the town.

Now that you know how to wear your jewelry, you never have to worry about it sitting in your jewelry box all alone. How do you like to accessorize?
