Picking the right metallic jewelry for your look

1.Ensure the jewelry matches the occasion

Are you going to the office? Stick to small and simple pieces. Don't wear accessories that jingle when you move.

If attending a formal event, pick one statement piece and keep the rest simple and small. If going to an informal event or party, almost anything goes.

2.The anatomy rule

There are four regions on a person’s body where jewelry is typically worn and most visible: your neck, ears, wrists, and fingers.

You don’t need to wear jewelry in each of these spots. You can go big on one of the areas and keep the others clean and simple.

3.Layer to create visual interest

For instance, multiple necklaces around your neck or a few rings on your fingers. Try different combinations to determine the most stylish look.

Opt for necklaces of different lengths to avoid tangling, and pair rings of varying thicknesses to create visual interest.

4.Here's another decision to make while getting dressed

What do you want the focus of your outfit to be? A simple - even dull - outfit will almost always look transformed into something special with the right jewelry and accessories.

The most important rule? Break the rules as you see fit. Dressing up should be fun and about your taste.

Your style is about who you are and how you want to appear to others. If what works for you is doing whatever you want and following none of the typical fashion tips, then go for it.
