Bling Blunders: 5 Mistakes To Avoid When Wearing Jewellery

5 Mistakes To Avoid When Wearing Jewellery

Jewellery is the ultimate accessory for making your outfit stand out. However, use it inappropriately and you could stand out for all the wrong reasons. Here are just five common mistakes to avoid when wearing jewellery.

Wearing more than one statement piece

It’s best not to wear too many blingy or wild items of jewellery at once. In fact, you're best sticking to one statement piece and keeping everything else minimal. People won’t know where to look first if you're wearing lots of blingy items together – it can reduce the visual impact of each item of jewellery and will make you come across gaudy and tacky. Statement pieces tend to be chunkier or more colourful. The rest of your jewellery meanwhile should follow a theme.

Choosing the wrong shaped earrings

Depending on the shape of your face, certain earring shapes can help to frame your face in the right way. If you’ve got a very round face, drop earrings and long earring pendants can help to elongate it – anything too round could emphasise the roundness of your face. Meanwhile, if you feel you have a very square or angular face, rounder shapes such as hoop earrings can help to soften it.

Choosing metals that don’t suit your skin tone

Certain metals go better with certain skin tones. For instance, if you’ve got cooler skin, you could find that metals like rose gold and copper don’t look right – to help bring out the coolness of your complexion you could be better off using white metals such as white gold, platinum, and silver. Similarly, those with warmer skin tones suit rose gold and copper better.

Ignoring metal allergies

Some people have allergies to certain metals. This can cause unsightly rashes and - in the case of piercings - sometimes infections. On top of doing nothing for your looks, this allergic reaction can be incredibly itchy. As a result, you should try to stick to metals that don’t react with your skin. For instance, if nickel belly bars are causing reactions you could be better off switching to titanium belly bars. Some metals are hypoallergenic which means that they are suitable for all skin allergies.

Not thinking practically

Practicality is very important when choosing jewellery to wear. In the workplace, certain jewellery could be a health and safety hazard - a dangling necklace could get caught in machinery whilst a ring could contain bacteria that could contaminate food in a kitchen. Other jewellery may simply be annoying or distracting such as jangly bangles if you spend most of your day typing on a keyboard. Such jewellery is also worth considering when doing household chores or any other manual labour task.
