But just because the choice of accessories is often subjective and usually determined by personal preference, there are still a few guidelines that must be followed to ensure that the items yield the desired effect. After all, if you don't, you're far more likely to cheapen your overall style and look instead of elevating it. So, in the interest of avoiding fashion blunders, here are some etiquette tips when it comes to wearing jewelry.
It must be coordinated with the outfit
One of the rules of wearing any accessory is that it must be coordinated with the chosen outfit, and jewelry is no exception. You wouldn't wear the same pieces that you do on evenings at your favorite club when you go to a church, after all. As such, it's important to consider the occasion and the apparel first before you make a choice on which items to wear. A delectable diamond name necklace will go better with formal wear, for example, while simple pendants and charms can be paired easier with casual attire.
Avoid going overboard
Too much of anything good can be bad. And in this way, jewelry is no different. Wearing too many items can be just as bad as having none at all. And it is for this reason that you must avoid going overboard. Instead, consider where you want the attention of others to be drawn. For example, if you want your neckline and face to be better noticed, a statement piece or layered necklaces will do the trick.
Don't limit yourself to trends
There's no denying that trends often influence what many of us choose to wear to a degree. And it's not necessarily a problem, it's never a good idea to limit yourself solely to what's popular or you'll just end up sacrificing both your personality and taste and in the process. Instead, select pieces that are in line with your preference and style. Fashion is also about being unique and standing out at the end of the day.
Go for personalized items
On the topic of standing out, one way to enhance your fashion while having a distinct style in the process is by choosing custom-made jewelry since it'll be unique to you. From having a name engraved on a pendant to making use of your birthstone, accessorizing with personalized pieces will not only make you be more noticeable. But it'll elevate your apparel too.
Fashion should be as fun as it is personal, and the style that you choose shouldn't just be how you want to be perceived by others but who you really are. And jewelry can help you achieve this. However, there are still rules that we must all adhere to in order to get the desired results. And by following all of the abovementioned tips, you'll be able to properly accessorize your apparel with the right pieces and look your best.
