There's more to accessorizing than piling on bling

Jun 26, 2013

In today's more-is-more society, many fashionistas have been guilty of piling on tons of bangles, belts, necklaces and more to showcase their collections on a daily basis. Though a stack of bracelets paired with modest studs like the 4.00 TCW Round Cubic Zirconia Platinum Over Sterling Silver Stud Earrings can create a major fashion moment, figuring out how to wear your favorite pieces correctly can help your style points soar in general. Here are a few tips for rocking jewelry - big or small - properly:

Chunky necklaces
Bold and beautiful colored necklaces can be a gorgeous accessory, especially during the warmer months when the pieces can help show off your totally tanned skin. You might think anything goes when it comes to summer, but this isn't necessarily the case. Instead, the pros at Harper's Bazaar magazine recommend you take a step back and think about the accessories you're trying to wear and the outfit you're looking to pair pieces with.

For example, if you're dying to wear the Emerald-Cut Blue And Green Crystal Accent Goldtone Metal Antique-Finish Collar Necklace 18," which boasts large blue and green emerald cut stones, it might be best to pair it with a simple black dress or a white blouse and navy shorts to allow the necklace to act as the focal point of your look.

Let the jewelry do what it does best - enhance your overall appearance. 

Envious earrings
Though they come in big and small sizes, all earrings help draw attention to your face, so it's best to rock pretty ones. Whether you only don studs or you prefer to add style points to your ensemble with show-stopper drop numbers, knowing when and how to wear certain versions is key. According to Harper's Bazaar, studs are the perfect accessory for women looking to add a touch of glamour to their everyday appearance. 

Though diamonds are the ultimate choice in studs, feel free to mix up your style with similarly sized pearl or silver earrings, as such a modest change can go a long way in helping you step up your game.

Ladies drawn to drop earrings tend to be a bit more adventurous than stud-wearers, but more reserved than those who long for outrageous chandelier styles. Perhaps the best way to rock drop earrings is to find a pair with a bit of sparkle, like the Round Crystal Accent 14k Yellow Gold-Plated Filigree Pear-Shaped Drop Earrings, which boast an elegant pattern as well as tiny crystals that will shine in the sun.

A pair of earrings like this can easily take your daily style from drab to fab.
