The Dos & Don'ts of Wearing Jewelry
1. Put A Ring On It
Do wear a single bold oversize ring as a glamorous exclamation point, day or night.
Don’t pair big rings with long, colorful nails—you’ll look like a strange blend of vintage hip-hop and drag queen.
2. Stack Up on Cuffs
Do invest in gold or silver cuff bracelets. They go beautifully with sleeveless tops and dresses.
Don’t forget to keep cuffs in proportion to you: Smaller girl equals smaller cuffs.
3. Mix Metals or Gems, Not Both
Do mix metal colors. Try silver gold and pink gold together, for instance.
Don’t pile on a mix of colored gemstones and different metals. Then you’re veering into Christmas tree territory.
4. Know When To Rock Big Hoop Earrings
Do try a minimalist hoop earring with a simple ponytail or sleek chignon for a great take on singer Sade’s classic style.
Don’t pair giant hoops with a head of curly hair—you’re just one tambourine shy of a Halloween costume.
5. Keep The Chunk To A Minimum
Do wear chunky chain-link bracelets and necklaces with simple clothes.It’s sporty chic with a status edge.
Don’t forget to keep your clothes metal-free—no studs!—when wearing out-there jewelry. Too many bold links and spikes are for biker babes.
