Jewelry is a huge accessory that can add a huge classy element to your whole entire outfit. When styled right, jewelry can be the most important accessory there is. To achieve a sophisticated look, it is important not to over accessorize with jewelry because it may take away the focus of the overall outfit and put all the attention on the jewelry. Therefore, there are many rules to follow when you are wearing jewelry. If you are wearing a dress with a low neckline, it is ideal for you to wear a necklace to accentuate your chest. Wearing earrings that match the color of your necklace is a must as well.

On the other hand, when wearing a high neckline dress a necklace won’t be necessary so put the focus on statement earrings or a ring. For a dress like this, it is important to wear earrings and one or two bracelets on the same hand. By having the two bracelets on the same hand, you add some dimension and flair to the outfit. You can also wear one or two rings with this sophisticated look.

  1. I can agree with you when you said that the jewelry piece is the most important part of a classy look and that the person needs to make sure that it does not overpower the look of the outfit. My sister prefers using small jewelry pieces that are not obvious yet completes her look. I guess she’s on the right track. Maybe I should give that a try since I, too, prefer the sophisticated look over the flamboyant look. Thanks!
