Enhance Your Style


Fashion Jewelry can enhance your personal style while adding numerous options to your wardrobe. To start with your jewelry collection, invest in a personal statement piece. This could be a necklace or chain with a defined or large pendant or a multi-strand necklace. You can then add bracelets or earrings of your choice to complement the outfit. Today’s style allows for mixing and matching of different colors and style of jewelry; “sets” of jewelry with complete necklaces, earrings and bracelets are not necessary for your collection. They are good pieces to mix and match with other jewelry you may have.

The best pieces of jewelry are those that can coordinate with several different outfits. Chains can be worn by themselves or with multiple slides that can be taken on and off as your outfits warrant. Some long necklaces can be draped in two or three strands that can completely change the look of an outfit. Even longer necklaces can be used as a waist-defining belt to dress up a hip-length sweater or blouse.

Pairing necklaces with earrings can be as simple as putting on simple hoops or a color that coordinates with your outfit. You should avoid pairing large earrings with a large statement piece as that will detract from your style. Smaller, simple earrings look best with large necklaces, and likewise, smaller necklaces can be paired nicely with larger earrings.

In addition to defined necklaces, bracelets are again gaining popularity as statement pieces. You can select a bold bracelet or wear several smaller diameter bracelets as one piece. Many fashion experts also are mixing both silver and gold for more versatility. This is especially true with rings, even gold, silver and platinum wedding rings.

The old adage that you should take off one piece of jewelry before leaving the house is that old. If you think you’re wearing too much jewelry, all you may need to do is change into a few more simpler pieces to draw more attention to the statement piece you want to which you want to focus attention.

Do not forget that watches also add to your jewelry style. You can mix smaller bracelets with a simple watch. A large face or colorful band can count as a statement piece. Using your fashion jewelry to accent your outfit is a matter of personal taste but can change a simple outfit into a magazine quality ensemble.
