I’ve always been a wearer of rings and jewelry in general. I feel incomplete without at least something on. In my opinion, even the most basic outfit can be dressed up if paired with the right accessories. Dainty details can make even the biggest impact as far as style goes. Here are some of my go-to rules about stacking your jewels to make it seem effortless and right on trend…
Rule No. 1: Balance. You don’t want the total look to be overwhelming. So, the thinner the band, the more rings you can get away with. And that goes the same with bracelets.
Rule No. 2: Stick with one color scheme. I am normally a fan of mixing metals, but when it comes to ‘hand jewelry’ I generally like to stay with the same color palette so as not to look overdone and mismatched.
Rule No. 3: Pay attention to your nails. If you’re wearing more jewelry than your used to, people are generally more prone to glance towards your nails. A fresh coat of your favorite color can really enhance the look.
Rule No. 4: Don’t be afraid of layering. When you’re working with smaller pieces, layering them up can have big affect. It’s an almost whimsical, bohemian approach to standard jewelry.
