Jewellery is the most important accessory because it is so versatile in not only how you can wear it, but also in colour, shape, and style. Statement pieces and delicate chains can be worn in so many ways, but it’s easy to latch onto one type of jewellery and stick with it. If you’re looking for fun, eclectic ways to mix up the way you wear your jewellery, keep reading. We’ve put together a short list of things you can do to take your jewellery game to another level.
Don’t Be Afraid to Mismatch
In years past, mismatching your earrings was seen as a cardinal sin of accessorizing. Thankfully those days are over, and it’s actually become something of a trend to mismatch your earrings. Try wearing different lengths, different colours, and different sizes. If you have multiple holes in your ears, use studs in one hole and dangling earrings in the other. You can easily find some mismatched earring pairs for sale: SpellThief n Co has a couple of gorgeous pairs of handcrafted mismatched tourmaline earrings that will look perfect no matter what you’re wearing!
Don’t Avoid Cute and Colourful
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with embracing cute and whimsical accessories like brooches. Not only do they embody lighthearted fun, they can also be great ways to draw compliments and start conversations. Dressed For Sunday has some lovely, breezy brooches and necklaces, as well as some carefree tie clips and cuff links. Pieces like these not only accentuate your clothing, but imbue it with a sense of relaxation and confidence.
Stack Your Necklaces and Bracelets
Stacking has long been a jewellery trend and continues to be because of how great it can look. Multiple necklaces can be incredibly striking, but if you wear too many it just starts to look cluttered. If you plan out your choices and pay attention to the finer detail of the pieces you’re wearing, the end result can be incredible. Large square chains like this one sold by contemporary designer Renate Jewellery will pair up well with almost any other kind of necklace, particularly those with bits of colour in them. Alternatively, consider wearing this oxidized leaf pendant with a smaller chain or a beaded necklace.
Use the same methods when looking to stack your bracelets. A large statement bracelet worn together with a couple of fine chains will look chic, and you can always mix and match your favourite watch with some bangles of your choice. Keep it on one arm if you want, or start stacking on both for some bohemian charm. You can stack almost anything, so don’t be afraid to experiment!
Try Anything and Everything
Ultimately your aesthetic will boil down to your own preferences, so why not try wearing what appeals to you over what you think other people will approve of? If you love bold colours and mismatched earrings, go for it! The same applies when it comes to whimsical designs and stacked bracelets and necklaces. Do some trial runs with your favourite pieces to get a feel for what works and what doesn’t, and keep adding to your jewellery collection in order to open up more possibilities!
