Sweater weather is not an excuse not to accessorizeiStock/iprogressman
“When you have an outfit that doesn’t allow for wearing much jewelry, like a fair isle that has a large turtleneck, look to your shoes to upgrade your outfits,” Raes suggests. A good choice: suede wedges or short boots in warm earthy hues, like maroon, olive, or navy.
Consider where you’re goingiStock/Giakita
Today’s style rules are much more lenient than times past, suggests Kristina Moore of corporatefashionista.com, even at work. “It’s acceptable to wear baubles during the day,” she says, though you need to take your workplace into account. “A chic, sophisticated crystal necklace may be the ideal accessory for a day full of meetings, but wearing it to give your closing trial argument is probably not a good idea—the shimmer will distract rather than attract your audience,” she says.
Pay attention before buying jewelry setsiStock/JackF
Finding a great necklace and earrings already matched up in a pretty package is an effortless win when it comes to accessorizing your outfit. However, Amber Edwards, editor of buyscreatingmemories.com, advises, “you want to make sure the jewelry sets aren’t going to over power your outfit. If you are wearing a very busy top in designs, you will want a more subdued jewelry set. If you have a lot going on with your clothing, the best way to accentuate is with a calm set of jewelry that will complete the outfit, not compete with the outfit.” Same goes for a Plain-Jane look: grab a bold bib necklace and earring set that will bring your outfit to life.
