Wear Less Than 3 Accessories for Each Outfit
The accessories you wear can make or break an outfit, and choosing the right ones is a big part of that. That's why it's essential to get in the habit of wearing less than three pieces for each look. This way, you can keep the focus on your outfit and make it shine while still being able to mix up your looks in a fun, creative way. On the other hand, wearing more than three accessories at a time can make you look disorganised and fussy.

When deciding which accessories to wear, take into consideration where they go with the outfit. Choosing complementary colours will help your look pop, while contrasting colours will give it a more edgy feel. 

If you're feeling self-conscious about wearing less than three pieces of jewellery at once, start with just one necklace and move on from there! That way, you can figure out what your favourite combos are before adding in the other two accessories.

Also, caring for your jewellery is a must if you want to pair different pieces for various occasions and looks.

Use a Matching Set of Jewelry Only if They Are Small
The rule of thumb when mixing and matching your jewellery is to keep it small. It's all too easy to get overwhelmed by a pile of mismatched earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings, but there are some simple steps you can take to create an elegant look with any accessory set.

First, choose one large piece like a necklace or bracelet to anchor your look. The rest of the pieces should match in size and style to work together without competing for attention. 

Similarly, if you're wearing multiple rings on different fingers, make sure that each ring matches the overall design but is unique. This is perfect for people with an outfit with several colours or patterns and can create the illusion of more pieces on their body than just one necklace.

Your Handbag Shouldn’t Be the Same Color As Your Shoes
Accessories are a great way to dress up your outfit, but you shouldn't have your handbag be the same colour as your shoes. You want to broaden the spectrum of colours that you're wearing, so it doesn't look like you just threw on any old thing in your closet. While this might sound tedious and not worth all the work, it can make your ensemble more complete.

Be sure to consider the colours of other items in your look when you are deciding on which accessories to wear. A little bit of colour coordination goes a long way! 

The way you dress reflects who you are and how confident in your style and personality you feel. Of course, it’s important to go with your gut when choosing accessories, but this article might be a good read for you if you’re unsure of where to start.
