Dos

  • Wear statement bracelets. These look great if worn well.
  • Keep a charm bracelet or two for different occasions.
  • Have at least one simple, elegant bracelet for everyday wear.
  • Never pair statement bracelets with other statement jewelry pieces. They can be harder to match with outfits as well.
  • Never wear more than two or three bracelets on one hand. Even when you do, layer them with one charm bracelet, a simple one and another leather bracelet added.
  • Be careful of chunky bracelets. They only look good on certain people and can actually make your arm look chunkier too.

Don’ts

Earrings

Earrings are trickier than bracelets but here are a few dos and don’ts about them too.

Dos

  • Pick earrings which match your face shape. Certain earrings can make your head look squarer, round or slimmer.
  • Hoop earrings are a safe option, but be careful, large hoops can sometimes look odd if you have a small head.
  • Statement earrings can look classy or chic but they can be hard to pull off.
  • Never wear statement earrings with a statement necklace. They can be paired with a statement bracelet but some pieces may not go with the bracelet.
  • Colorful earrings are fun but don’t go overboard. Know when to tone it down and stop your ears from looking like signboards.
  • Don’t follow every trend you see. Certain celebrities can pull off statement earrings and more but you should pick earrings which suit you, not your favorite model or celebrity.

  • Avoid going overboard and do not layer too many rings on your hands.
