JEWELRY123 BLOGS: JEWELRY TIPS, DO'S & DON'TS — brand yourself with jewelry
Posted by Staff on
Are you a classic/conservative type of jewelry wearer or are you a fashion forward trendy jewelry wearer? What's your preference? Plain or colorful? Bold or classic? Whatever category you fall into, this article about decorating with jewelry will teach you a lot about how, when, and where to wear the right jewelry for the right occasion.
Decorating with jewelry should compliment your attire- not clash with it. It should bring out the beauty of your attire, as well as your features, and of course your jewelry. All kinds of jewelry whether it is the classic ones of gold and silver or the most “fashion-forward” styles of today are all stunning and eye catching. You just have to know and understand where, when and how to wear it. Most jewelry wearers are unaware of this which is why they often hear things about their fashion taste to be boring or too much. They usually go to one extreme or the other: not wearing enough or the right jewelry for the outfit or wearing to much.
When branding yourself with jewelry, you should consider several things. From your budget to your facial features to your skin tone and most importantly to the occasion. As a jewelry wearer myself, I advice my readers to wear the right size and color of jewelry. Choose jewelry that will compliment and highlight your best features such as your face and skin tone. Some women who are in the plus size prefer to wear “chunky jewelry”. Make sure that it does not clash with your outfit. Choose jewelry instead that will bring out the best color and design of my dress.
Here are some branding tips that will help complement your best features:
• Don't overdo it if you are going on a traditional job interview, wear “something less”. Remember this is a professional occasion which means less is more when it comes to jewelry. You can wear your watch, a pair or pearl or stud diamond avoid dangling earrings and chunky bangles that could distract your soon to be employer.
You may also wear a plain necklace of gold or silver. If you prefer beaded works, then go for single strand, one color of necklace, a wrist watch and one small stud and nothing more. Of course this can be catered to the profession. The jewelry for an office administrator should be different than the jewelry a professional musician rock would wear.
