Jewelry can turn an ordinary outfit into a fashion statement. Therefore, it is important to figure out what kind of jewelry style you must have. This enables you to build a collection of pieces that you can wear every day or on special occasion.
In addition, you can easily match colors, shapes, and textures and shop for better jewelry pieces by understanding your jewelry style. The following are five ways in finding your unique personal jewelry style.
Have a look at your current lifestyle
Just like trying to figure out your clothing style, looking at your current lifestyle should reflect what you have in your closet. For example, you might be the type to wear more dressy jewelry for special occasions; then, for everyday wear or work stuff, you might be wearing something a bit more subtle. You might also select a few pieces for everyday wear, and then layer up and wear more jewelry for a special occasion.
Find your favorites
Pull out some of your favorite jewelry. It could be a necklace, a pair of earrings, a ring, a bracelet, or a watch. Once you have pulled out a couple of your favorites, it’s time to figure out what these pieces have in common. Does a particular material such as gold or silver stand out? Do you tend to go for classic pieces, or do you love unique, artsy jewelry such as those from Boho Magic? Are they edgy or more feminine? These pieces have in common with what your jewelry style is built on. Focusing on that will give you a nice jewelry capsule filled with only your favorite pieces.
Define your jewelry style
It is natural to choose jewelry that matches the style of clothes you wear. Your accessories should likely have a connection to the type you have within your wardrobe. For instance, if you go for a simple and classic style of clothes, you might be going for a simple and classic style of jewelry, such as short and sleek necklaces. The same goes if you have a more feminine style, then you might like pearl necklaces or pearl earrings.
Mix and match
You can try to mix different materials, such as gold and silver, or different textures. For instance, layer your necklaces by wearing something chunkier and another that’s a bit finer. You can also choose different chain lengths for layering necklaces. This is perfect if you’re wearing a simple outfit as it creates a fancier overall look. Go for more statement pieces to keep the rest rather subtle. Choose certain focal points such as statement earrings that you can mix them with a simple necklace or vice versa.
Gather up inspiration
It’s always helpful to get some inspiration for new ideas in combinations or style directions that you might like. There are tons of resources online that you can use, especially when creating different layered combinations.
Like clothing, jewelry is something personal. People have their own tastes and style preference for wearing jewelry. Creating a capsule wardrobe can be applied to your jewelry collection by selecting your favorites so you can easily plan your daily accessories.
