How do you wear jewelry as part of your personal style? Here are some things I consider when deciding what jewelry to wear:

I’m fascinated with all the various ways we can combine the jewelry we wear into our personal style.
And this is also something that a lot of jewelry customers would appreciate your help with – helping them figure out great ways to incorporate jewelry as the finishing touch to their overall look.
Today I’m going to share a little about how I work jewelry into my personal style.
My style is basically an uncluttered, simple look with a bit of drama.
I often I wear clothes that are more plain and simple so they make a good backdrop for my jewelry.
Then my top becomes a blank canvas for the necklace art that will be worn with it.
And my earrings get more attention if the top I’m wearing is plain and simple.
But when I wear something a little more detailed like this sweater with the big cowl neckline, I feel like that’s enough going on around my neck, and wearing a necklace with it would be too much for my style.
So I’m not wearing a necklace, but instead I’ll choose a simple pair of earrings that are either large or colorful (I chose colorful), that create a good visual balance against that neckline.
And because I’m just not comfortable wearing heavy jewelry, part of my personal style is that if I’m going to wear earrings, they need to be lightweight.
So for me large earrings might have a lot of openwork or open areas in them to keep them lightweight, or they could be made from lightweight materials like acrylic.
Since the sweater looks pretty busy already, I chose to wear these simple, medium-size, lightweight, colorful acrylic bead earrings.
I chose colorful earrings because the sweater is all neutral colors and I felt that a bright pop of color was what this outfit needed.
So for me, working jewelry into my personal style involves a lot of small choices that when put together make a difference in my overall look.
And of course, your style and how you wear jewelry is not written in stone. You can always change and evolve as you go.
I would love to hear how you wear jewelry as part of your personal style!
Thanks so much for stopping in today! I’ll see you soon.
