You may have the ideal outfit in mind for an upcoming function. However, finding the right piece of jewellery to go with it might be challenging.
After you've chosen a garment, something may still seem odd after you've tried it on. So, what are the jewellery rules? How can you accessorise your outfit without being garish?
Knowing how not to wear your jewellery is an essential part of getting the most out of it. You can elevate your outfit by simply wearing your jewellery correctly.
Here are some of the most common jewellery blunders and how to prevent them.
Letting Your Jewellery Tarnish
Like everything else that is worn frequently, jewellery collects filth and grime. It is in contact with your skin for long periods, typically while you are engaged in a range of activities.
It doesn't matter if you are wearing sterling silver huggies earrings. If you don't clean and maintain your jewellery, it will tarnish. People will notice eventually, even if it takes a long time!
You may need to clean your jewellery every few weeks, depending on the piece and how you use and keep it. Cleaning can range from a simple soap and water wash to an intensive filth and tarnish removal procedure.
Making sure your jewellery is in good condition helps guarantee that you look your best as well.
Wearing Them in Water
Wearing your jewellery in water is a sure way to ruin it.
It's easy for little bits to fall off and down the drain when you're in the shower before you know it. Aside from water itself being a solvent, shampoos, conditioners, and body washes may all degrade the condition of your jewellery as well.
When swimming, it's also a good idea to take off any jewellery you're wearing first. Swimming pools and hot tubs contain chlorine which may discolour jewellery and damage gold. Saltwater isn't much better since it may degrade some metals.
Consider the occasion while looking at different jewellery pieces. A lovely pendant may be appropriate for a formal event, but it may appear out of place at the office. Everyone wants their outfit to be elegant and costly, but wearing too much at the same time might look too gaudy.
Not Matching Your Neckline
Consider some alternatives to the same necklace you've been wearing every day. Look through your jewellery collection and note your necklaces' various styles and lengths. See which ones are better with rounded or v-necklines.
Not Matching Your Hair Style
If you wear your hair down, it may draw attention away from your earrings. Consider putting on a pair of basic studs or some solid gold huggie hoops.
If you have a bun or a high ponytail, on the other hand, there will be a lot of space between your ear and your neck. Consider wearing something larger and more traditional in such a case.
Combining Gold and Silver
Gold and silver are equally beautiful on their own. Although some people proudly wear both simultaneously, this rarely works out in people’s favour.
Warmer tones go nicely with gold. Gold may suit you well if you have an olive or Mediterranean complexion. On the other hand, cooler tones look better with silver or platinum. Go for one look or the other—wearing both may be too much.
Getting the Most Out of Your Jewellery
The real art of accessories is knowing how to incorporate them into your overall outfit and how not to. Make the most of the pieces you have by avoiding mistakes.
There's no fear of looking frumpy or tasteless with the right jewellery. Keep these pointers in mind, and you'll look your best with the fewest accessories possible.
