5 Tricks to Mixing and Matching Your Jewelry with Your OOTD So they Don't Clash

Every fashion girl knows that accessorizing is an art. It may be the easiest way to dress up your outfit, but if the jewelry pieces you combine clash, they can overwhelm and throw off your entire look. To avoid this, follow this guide and learn the art of mixing things up in style. 

1. Layer dainty jewelry only.

Create a relaxed but stylish vibe by layering thin, dainty pieces of various lengths. Since the pieces are on the delicate side, they won’t overwhelm your look. Make the necklaces stand out by wearing a low-neck top, and stay casual with skinny jeans and low block-heeled sandals. To dress the outfit up a bit more, throw on a sleek blazer.

2. Work around a centerpiece.

An easy way to make a statement is to work around a focal point. Like building an outfit around your newest bag or pair of shoes, clasp on a statement necklace or earring then make it pop by pairing it with smaller, matching pieces. If you’re wearing bejeweled, dangling earrings, complement them with a thin silver bangle or a chain necklace with a tiny stone pendant—just make sure that the metal or the stones match. Best worn with a little black dress and black pumps, jewelry with sparkly stones will definitely add more elegance to the look.

3. Stack thick and thin pieces together.

For a stronger layered look, mix your skinny metals with your chunky chains. Keep the bigger pieces to a minimum, or try wearing them according to size (thinnest to thickest) for a more cohesive look. A trend to try if you haven’t yet: stacked earrings. Match some stud piercings with a chunky pair of ear cuffs for an attention-grabbing look. Keep your hair in a ponytail or slicked back, and your makeup simple. You’ll look effortlessly edgy yet coordinated.

4. Mix metals.

You may have read somewhere that you shouldn’t mix metals, but it’s actually a fun and interesting way to match your jewelry. Try stacking gold and silvery bangles together, or wear a piece that plays around with mixed metals. Just make sure to keep it to two metallic shades to avoid clashing.

5. Keep things symmetrical.

If you have four or five piercings in each ear, play around by wearing completely different earrings on each. One can have studs, small hoops, and a dangling chain, while the other can be adorned with a cuff and a bigger hoop at the lobe. To pull this look off, make sure each ear looks balanced. Play up the edginess of these accessories with a leather jacket.

With your mixing and matching skills down pat, you’ll be able to navigate through the accessories you already own or be inspired to get pieces that can challenge you to step your jewelry styling game up.
