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
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
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.
