Jewelry & Fashion Accessories Etiquette

Tips of Elegant Accessorizing

  • The general rule of thumb is do not wear more than one thing at a time, with the exception of bangles.
  • Take into account color combos. Aim for a cohesive look.
  • When in doubt, pick an area to accentuate before making decisions on what jewelry to wear.
  • Remember not to get carried away and over do it! For instance, do not wear earrings, a necklace, a watch, a few rings and bracelets at the same time. You'll look like a christmas tree!
  • Keep it simple, less is more.

  • Also, a woman never looks elegant with more than one earring in each ear.
  • Ensure a balance when accessorizing. Be careful that you do not want to look lopsided.

  • Accessories 'breaks' the shape of the dress or solid colors, which can be a good thing. It adds sparkle to a plain outfit, or creates an interesting look by giving a color contrast.

    For example, wearing a long chain gives you a long neckline and helps you look taller and slimmer. A lopsided look occurs when you wear say, a short strand of pearl necklace with a narrow V-neck top. The 'shape' does not flow.

    Wearing a short strand of pearls or a necklace brings attention to the neck or the collarbones, which is very desirable.
  • Sometimes wearing dangling earrings can be distracting with your hair tied back in a pony tail, especially if it swings back to and forth as you speak. When worn well, it can look very chic emphasizing the ears and neckline.
  • If in doubt, only wear one piece of jewelry at any one time.
  • To achieve a very fail-proof elegant look, wear pearls.
