Jewellery has been worn for centuries as a means to enhance appearance as well as show ones status. From crude jewellery made from the likes of wood and plants to quality made pieces using precious metals and gemstones to suit royalty, jewellery has been a good way to accessorise for thousands of years.Luckily, in the modern age, we have a wide range of styles to choose from! So today, we've compiled a few tips on selecting jewellery that will complement your particular features and body types! As you know, we've already touched on how to enhance your features with earrings, so this blog will touch base on how to accessorize with necklaces, bracelets and rings-- Enjoy! Necklaces Much like clothing, necklaces can help make you appear either taller or shorter. If you are shorter and want to give the perception of height, then choose necklaces that are longer. Necklaces that are V-shaped or Y-shaped can elongate your appearance. Pick necklaces that go below your collarbone, but not pass your waist. These shapes and lengths will stretch your torso and make you appear taller. For those who are tall and wish to take attention away from your height, choose necklaces that are shorter and rest closer to your collarbone. Choker necklaces can also work to make you look shorter.
When choosing necklaces, you also want to think about the volume or chunkiness of the necklace. A full figure would suit a necklace that has a little bit of volume-- try large chunky stones or a thick chain. If you are petite however, larger jewellery may swamp you figure and therefore you may want to choose something a little more delicate.
But always remember, when choosing jewellery, regardless of any rules, buy what you love! Finding something you feel good in is the perfect accessory to any outfit!
