While looking your best when out and about is important, sometimes it is all too easy to go overboard in the matter.

This is especially true when it comes to jewellery as some people don’t know when enough is enough. The accessories you don each day should be that: simple accessories. They should highlight your attractive features without overwhelming anything. So that you can maintain an eye-pleasing appearance, here are a few ways to know how many items you should wear.

Forget About It

There are times when no jewellery is better than some. With certain outfits, the design itself is enough to draw attention to your look without any lavish accessories getting in the way. Take a gander in the mirror before you go out to see whether a certain item will add to your look or detract from it. For example, two pieces of clothing which should never been worn with a necklace are:

•    Low-cut dresses
•    Halter-neck tops

These items accentuate your collarbone and neckline anyway, so any sort of necklace will just hide the overall effect. In this case, the clothes can stand by themselves, creating a killer outfit that everyone will appreciate. For those who really feel naked without some sort of jewellery, some small earrings will be as much as should be allowed in this scenario.

Think Minimally

In other circumstances, remember that you should always use jewellery in a balanced manner. Never let it overpower your overall look. For instance, you wouldn’t wear dark eye shadow and lipstick at the same time, as your facial features would effectively be hidden. The same attitude should be made with the accessories that you wear. Whether you shop at or simply choose items from your home, strike a balance between the jewellery you wear and the clothing you have on. Large earrings should be worn smaller necklaces and vice-versa so that the primary accessory highlights exactly what you want it to. Let your body and your clothing be the centre of attention, while the jewellery you wear simply adds subtle changes and focuses on the best features of your appearance. After all, this is what you’re aiming for every time you step out of the door each day.

One Final Piece of Advice

As the world famous fashion designer, Coco Chanel said, “It is always better to be slightly underdressed.” Before you leave the house then, it will be important to take off at least one item that you have on. Once you feel that you have a complete outfit, strip it down to its bare minimum, giving you a sleeker appearance that you can be proud of. Remember that a work of art is made by first creating something course and then getting rid of the unnecessary details. The same will definitely apply to the outfit that you wear each day. After all, you dress to be beautiful. Think of yourself as a living, breathing masterpiece and you can then use jewellery in an effective, yet minimal way.
