How To Wear Jewelry Right

Feb 10, 2008
A man should wear jewelry; it should not wear him. This statement means that jewelry can make or break a man's outfit. The right jewelry should allow him to pull off his look effortlessly, while the wrong jewelry would only make him look ridiculous. Jewelry is now considered as one of the important accessories that add the required finishing touches to a man's look. If you do not have a clue as to what jewelry to pick to complement your outfit, then this short article may serve as your guide.

1. Necklace. Less is more, keep it tucked in your shirt. Doing otherwise will just look tacky and even childish.

2. Ring. Aside from the usual ring finger, these days you can wear a ring on your pinky, your thumb, or just about any finger, as long as it looks good with your outfit and it matches the occasion. Avoid wearing disproportionately large rings as they would only make your fingers and hands look smaller and would come across as gaudy. Refrain from wearing more than one ring at time since it looks too flashy.

3. Bracelet. As a general rule, bracelets should not be worn too tightly around the wrist, nor should you let them swing up and down your arm.

4. Earrings. There is a particular type of earring called for in a certain occasion. It would not be appropriate to wear a diamond stud at the beach. A punk-inspired earring would look awkward when worn during a black tie or red carpet event.

5. Watch. Gold, silver or titanium wristwatches rather than leather-strapped ones go better with an evening suit. Leather watches are for more casual events.

6. Do not wear too much jewelry. Piling tons of jewelry would only destroy your look; it would make it appear confusing and cluttered. But there is an exception to this rule. You can wear several accessories at a time, as long as it matches your outfit. For instance, you can layer beaded necklaces or anklets if you want to achieve a more laidback, bohemian look.

7. Wear jewelry with the right length and size. It would be useless to don a long metal chain and tuck it in your shirt. It would also be wrong to wear a very loose bracelet, especially if it goes up and down your arm and makes an annoying noise. Don't wear overly large accessories since they would look just too showy. Wearing accessories that are too small would also look awkward, especially on a big person. When it comes to combinations, avoid using extremely big jewelry with small ones. A thick necklace and a tiny stud earring would look gawky.

8. Different types of jewelry are called for in different occasions. You can where jewelry anytime and anywhere. Since it boosts our image and enhances our appearance, we should not limit wearing it to formal events. Instead of precious metals and gemstones, we can opt for simpler materials, which are durable and ideal for everyday use, such as stainless steel, leather, rubber, and glass.
