How to wear jewellery: Etiquette for Different Events

Women around the world have a love for fashion and enjoy putting outfits together for various occasions. Fortunately, women have many different options when it comes to outfits, as well as the accessories that add the finishing touches to any outfit. Jewelry is one of the most popular accessories used to dress up any outfit and take it to the next level.

Not only that, but jewelry has the power to dress down an outfit as well. Below is a closer look at a variety of jewelry, how to wear them, and the different occasions that call for particular jewelry pieces.


Jewelry Pieces Women Love

As with everything, jewelry pieces come and go each season because of trends and what is considered in style at the moment. However, there are many pieces that are considered classic and are still popular. To learn more, browse Adina's Jewels to see current trends. For example, statement pieces, chain necklaces, bangle bracelets, cocktail rings, gemstones, and so much more are still very popular pieces that women have been drawn to for many years.

Different Events

Wearing jewelry is meant to add beauty to your outfit, but it also gives you a chance to express your personality and sense of style. Although there are many fashion rules to consider, remember to always use your best judgment. Don’t be too concerned with what the fashion experts say. Try different things together and determine for yourself if you like the look or not. With that being said, let’s take a look at some of those fashion tips.


Statement Pieces and How to Wear Them

Statement pieces of jewelry are pieces that will be noticed by others. They are often larger in size and include bolder colors. These pieces of jewelry are often used to dress up an outfit. For example, most people attending a formal event will wear a long dress that is often a solid color. A statement necklace or earrings would elevate the look tremendously. These statement pieces often include rhinestones or gemstones to give some sparkle to the look.

Different Events

When wearing statement pieces, there are a few things to consider. First, make sure you are not overdoing it. Choose one statement piece you would like to be the focal point of your outfit, whether it is a necklace or earrings. If it is a necklace, choose subtle earrings (such as stud earrings) to accompany the look. You can consider a cocktail ring or bracelets to complete your look. As stated before, try it on and determine for yourself if you love the way you styled your outfit. Make sure your outfit is not competing with the jewelry you are wearing.

When it comes to wearing a bold outfit (one with many colors or patterns), it is probably best to not wear statement pieces. A bold outfit and statement pieces may be overdoing because that presents many elements to the outfit. People around you will get distracted and will not know whether to compliment your outfit or your jewelry. At that point, it may look like you are trying a little too hard to pull off a look.

We talked about wearing statement pieces to special events, but what about using statement pieces to dress up a tee-shirt and jeans? Many women love to dress casually but want to add some jewelry to spice up their outfit a bit. To do this, consider a statement necklace, earrings, bracelets, or a ring, but not all of them at the same time. Imagine wearing a simple white tee-shirt, ripped jeans, flat shoes, and a cardigan. A statement necklace or earrings would definitely spice it up a bit. Choose one or the other and pair the look with a few bangle bracelets. This look is great for having a get together with friends or for a casual day out.


What to Wear to Work?

When it comes to the workplace, women are a bit more reserved regarding their outfit choices, and the same should apply to the jewelry they wear. For example, statement pieces are probably not piecing that should be worn to the office. However, dainty stud earrings and ones that dangle would be appropriate. Pendant necklaces and thin bracelets are also acceptable. Jewelry worn into the office should not be distracting to others.


The Little Black Dress

A little black dress is considered a staple in every woman’s closet because it is so versatile and can be worn to various events. It is versatile because it can be dressed down or up through the use of different accessories (including jewelry).

If you are interested in wearing a little black dress to a wedding or cocktail party, your accessories must elevate the look. Choose bold and shiny jewelry pieces to finish off the look. For example, a statement necklace, bracelets, and dainty earrings would look fantastic. Another example includes statement earrings, a cocktail ring, and two to four bangle bracelets. Any combination would work to complete a look. Experiment a little bit to see what you like the best.

That same little black dress can be dressed down to enjoy a casual night out with friends. To achieve this look, consider pairing the dress with flat shoes, a denim jacket, hoop earrings, and bangle bracelets. As with everything, take a look in the mirror and try different looks. Just remember, if you are trying to dress it down, jewelry that sparkles and shines is probably not the way to go.

Fashion is a great way to express your style and personality. Although there are rules and guidelines, you should always do what looks and feels best to you. Don’t be afraid to break some rules. Experiment and try different things. Who knows, you could be the next person to set the newest trend.

When it comes to jewelry, women have many options to choose from, and that is a great thing. Such options range from very affordable to expensive. It is up to you to determine your budget and the pieces you want to invest in.
