You may have jewelry boxes and organizers filled with rings, bracelets, necklaces, and brooches, but you probably wear only a few pieces on a regular basis. If you’re looking for an excuse to wear your jewelry, you’ll be happy to know that you don’t need to dress up for your fancier items. In fact, you don’t even need to wear necklaces as necklaces or bracelets as bracelets. You can easily incorporate them in other ways into your everyday outfits without looking too dressy. Here are a few alternative ways to wear your jewelry:
Attach them to your bag
Beaded bags are textured bags that reminded some people of a ‘90s granny aesthetic, giving them the nickname “granny bags.” However, they’re now back as a trend in 2021. And it’s a good thing you don’t need to buy one to get on the trend. Adding some jewelry to your bag is a simple way to level up your look. Wrap necklaces or bracelets around the handles, or attach their ends on the bag and let them hang loosely. Another option is to pin brooches. You can put jewelry on backpacks and body bags as well, not just on clutches and purses. However, it’s best to add jewelry on plain bags so that they can stand out.
Pin brooches to your shoes or hat
Brooches work best on plain shoes so they can stand out. If you don’t have two brooches that are exactly the same, you can simply pair two similarly-styled brooches. Pin them near the seam or any part of the shoes that offers some rigidity. Meanwhile, you can attach a brooch anywhere on a hat.
Bejewel your face mask
Face masks are now an essential part of anyone’s outfit. In fact, several variations of face masks continue to come out – from your everyday reusable masks to special occasion-specific wedding masks. Bejeweling your face mask may require more effort than other suggestions on this list. Having anything hanging off your mask may be dangerous as it could accidentally be caught on your hands. As such, you’ll have to sacrifice some of your jewelry and sew it onto your face mask. You can also use a necklace as a face mask chain.
Wrap a necklace around your waist
If you’re wearing a shapeless, flowing dress, wrapping a long necklace around your waist can add some curve to your figure. If you don’t have a long enough necklace, you can string similarly-styled necklaces and bracelets, such as pieces from the same collection, together. You can also do some layering the same way you’d do so if you wore necklaces.
Wear them in your hair
Sparkly barrettes and headbands aren’t the only accessories you can use for your hair. Having bejeweled hairstyles is actually quite common on the runway or red carpet events, being sported by Jennifer Lawrence and Cara Delevingne, among others. You can braid a necklace through your hair, slide a thumb ring over your ponytail holder, or pin a bracelet across your head like a headband. You can even braid rings into your hair. No matter how you put it in your hairstyle, jewelry can easily make simple hairstyles look classier.
