Many people understand that too much jewellery is a major fashion mistake; in fact, it may be in the top of the list of fashion errors. It seems at times that some people simply don't know when to stop. Jewellery is a great thing because it can make an outfit stand out, or highlight your natural features. But when is too much? This post aims to answer that question once and for all.
Wearing too much jewellery is an overwhelming experience to those that see you. It creates too much distraction from you, your clothing and yes, even the jewellery itself. Strive to make yourself the center of everyone's attention, not your amount of jewellery.
Here's another important piece of advice. Sometimes jewellery isn't necessary. Many times women will wear a necklace or bracelet when there is no need and then even that simple amount of jewellery can be overkill. Plan your style carefully and consider if the jewellery will accent your outfit or detract.
The most important time to skip a necklace is when many women feel is the best time to wear one: when you're wearing a low-cut dress or halter top. These outfits already reveal a great deal of your collarbone, neck and chest. Don't draw too much attention and cheapen your look by wearing a necklace; the clothing is enough and can stand by itself. Usually an attention-grabbing pair of earrings will do in these circumstances.
Another situation to watch out for is this: wearing large earrings with a necklace. Balance is very important to create the right look and this is one of the reasons too much jewellery is a no-no. You wouldn't ever pair dark lipstick with dark eye makeup; don't make the same mistake with jewellery. Let your clothing and self be the center of attention.
In summary, balance should always be kept in mind to avoid wearing too much accessories. Think about this when you're getting ready to go out. Also, make sure it's you that shines through, not your choice of over-the-top necklace. Above all else, jewellery should be thought of as an accent. Use it sparingly and you'll wind up looking your best.
