5 Jewelry Rules to Break Now

Once upon a time, fashion was dictated by rules. Mixed prints were a no-no. White after Labor Day was a no-no.

Fast-forward to a time where there's only one rule: There aren't any rules! That doesn't mean you should go around town looking like a clown, but if you've got the confidence there are very few things you can't rock. Here are 5 jewelry rules that were meant to be broken.

Never Mix Metals — What was once seen as tacky, is now purposeful and stylish. Feel free to mix silver, gold and rose gold. The colors don't need to match, but the individual pieces should make sense together. Put together styles that make for good combinations and the metals will go well together.

Remove One Accessory — Coco Channel once said, "Before leaving the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory." That was before arm parties was a "thing." Stacked bracelets can make a powerful fashion statement. Go big or go home.

Make a Statement — "Wear only one piece of statement jewelry at a time"? Rubbish! A statement necklace can easily be supported with a statement bracelet. Look at your neckline and sleeves to determine the best way to make an impact with statement jewelry.

Faux Sure — Investing in expensive jewelry is a nice luxury, but by no means a necessity. Stay on trend and on budget by wearing faux jewels. You'll get much more bang for your buck and have a collection your friends will envy.

Save Special-Occasion Jewelry — Do you have a gorgeous necklace or ring that was passed down to you? No need to reserve special jewelry for special occasions. Wear that stunning piece with jeans and a white T-shirt. Make sure your hair and makeup support the look. Special pieces serve as a sweet reminder and should be worn often.
