1. CREATE LAYERS WITH RINGS, NECKLACES AND BANGLES
Experiment with contrasting lengths, shapes, textures and colours to make appealing layers with rings, necklaces, bangles and even in some cases earrings.
If you're layering necklaces then go for different lengths to draw the eye up to your face.
Different shapes, colours and textures will often work a treat. For bangles and bracelets you can pretty much create an arm party of different pieces which will flash and jangle as you move. Rings can be mixed, matched and stacked in all sorts of interesting combinations.
2. KNOW WHEN TO STOP
If you’re drawing attention to your face and neckline with layered necklaces or a statement piece, perhaps you don’t need an armful of bangles to compete for attention. If you’ve accessorised with multiple pieces then consider taking a leaf out of Coco Chanel’s book: "Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory“
3. CAREFULLY CONSIDER YOUR EARRINGS
If you have long hair a great tip is to select a colour or metal finish which is more likely to be visible, depending on your hair colour. However, your earrings are usually in the field of vision for anyone who is talking to you, so they are important. You should aim to choose different earrings to frame your face and complement your hair, eye colour and skin tone.
4. WHAT’S THE FOCUS: JEWELLERY OR CLOTHING?
A simple - even dull - outfit will almost always look transformed into something special with the right jewellery and accessories. You can choose jewellery that really makes a statement to bring a simple outfit to life. But if you’re wearing bold clothing, then often it’s a good idea to go with smaller, more subtle jewellery pieces as highlights.
5. WEAR RINGS WITH PANACHE
Stacking rings in particular can add a lot of versatility to your wardrobe as you can mix and match them as you please to create a slightly different look each day. You can even choose to wear just one or two simple stacking rings for a more minimalist look on some days. Try pairing up a set of matching rings or go for a mixture of colours, textures and gemstones.
If you’re wearing multiple rings then the consensus seems to be to wear no more than one cocktail ring on each hand. Wearing an odd number of rings on one hand and even on the other works well too.
