Too Much Jewelry

Expand on idea of“Too Much Jewelry”

When wearing jewelry, it is important to take into account a few simple rules in order to create a fashion forward look instead of suffering from gaudy over-accessorizing. For instance, one should start by limiting your accessories to two or three pieces when styling an outfit. Pick just one type of metal tone, preferably gold or silver and opt for smaller, more delicate pieces like rings and small necklaces. Make sure the colors you pick don’t clash with each other. Also be mindful of what piece of clothing you are styling – if wearing an elaborate dress like a maxi gown choose simple earrings or no jewelry at all. When it comes to the classic little black dress though, the messier the better! Statement pieces like bib necklaces work perfectly for occasions such as this. Furthermore, steering clear from mismatched clusters and confining yourself to working with only one point-of-interest can help you make all the difference when it comes to avoiding gaudy looks and nailing modern styling.

Add Visuals

Too much jewelry can easily overpower your style and make an outfit look garish. To create a stylish yet understated look, you should choose your jewelry wisely. Don’t wear an abundance of large pieces or multiple layers at once; instead, keep things tasteful by selecting one to two standout elements that won’t take away from the overall look. For example, a statement earring paired with just one delicate bracelet can enhance any ensemble, so try to be selective when adding these finishing touches. Your wardrobe will thank you for it!

Pictured above is one example of how to layer jewelry without letting it become overbearing. Here we have added a pair of diamond studs for subtlety and sparkle along with a few delicate layered necklaces in gold and rose gold tones. This combination creates interest without being too overwhelming or distracting from the rest of the outfit. It’s the perfect mix of understated elegance and modern sophistication.

Give Examples

I had a friend who was always decked out in jewelry. Everywhere she went, she’d have multiple necklaces, several bracelets and dangly earrings. Although the jewelry was eye-catching and even glamorous, it often ended up looking clunky and overwhelming!

For example, I remember going to a work party with her once. She wore an all-black dress accompanied by an array of different necklaces ” four in total! The necklaces were beautiful, but they hung so heavily that her dress was completely unnoticeable. My other friend commented that it looked like she had put too much jewelry on!



Another personal example would be my own experience with piling on too many rings every day. Choosing just one big statement ring or two small ones is enough for me; any more than that and my hands start to look cluttered and weigh me down. I’m sure others have experienced the same thing when wearing multiple pieces of jewelry!

Conduct Research

When it comes to wearing jewelry, many cultures take the phrase “less is more” to heart. We often hear that too much jewelry can be a sign of arrogance or overconfidence. In some countries, wearing too many accessories is associated with negative traits such as brashness or vanity. In other places, however, these ornate displays of personal style are embraced and worn as symbols of status and prosperity. When it comes to understanding how different cultures view excessive jewelry, there are a few key findings worth noting.

In some Eastern European countries such as Poland, Russia, and Hungary, it’s believed that wearing too much jewelry suggests bad taste and poor judgment. People in these regions find modest adornment to be elegant and tasteful. On the other hand, in Greece and Italy, large jewelry pieces are considered stylish. It’s quite common for Greeks and Italians to wear multiple extravagant pieces such as bracelets, necklaces and earrings in silver or gold.

Meanwhile, Middle Eastern countries strongly oppose excessive adornments because they are thought of as too flashy or ostentatious. Wearing more than one ring is frowned upon by cultural standards within this region; instead modesty is preferred when accessorizing with minimal embellishments like subtle studs or plain chains.
