Accessories can be a fantastic addition to near enough any outfit. The ideal bracelet or a necklace shining around your neck can set things alight, add points of interest, and generally provde you with a standout edge. Yet, for some reason, accessory wearing also tends to be a marmite matter.
That is right; you either love it or hate it. And, given you are reading this post, there is a high chance you are in the latter category. Do you have drawers filled with costume jewelry that never sees the light of day? Do you always slip rings off within minutes of wearing them?
You aren’t alone. Many of us struggle to get going where jewelry is concerned, no matter how much we want to make it work. Lucky for you, this might not need to halt your accessory attempts altogether.
We are going to discuss how you can turn to the capsule approach to ensure you are at least able to utilize some key pieces moving forward. We are not saying you are going to turn into an accessory-led fashionista overnight, but developing your accessory capsule in the following ways might see you reaching a jewelry-wearing compromise.
Pick Pieces That Feel Comfortable
Given that discomfort is a leading cause for accessory struggles, picking pieces you feel comfortable wearing is the most important thing you can do. Too often, people who do not ‘gel’ with jewelry buy in bulk without giving any thought to each piece. This is a guaranteed way to ill-fitting bracelets, uncomfortable earrings, and accessories that rot in your drawer.
Instead, focus on individual pieces that you actually enjoy/feel comfortable wearing. This guarantees adequate usage which is, after all, a key focus where capsule wardrobes are concerned. If you are used to buying cheap costume pieces, tackle this point straight away by instead turning to designer choices like this Van Cleef and Arpels Jewelry. While each piece will likely cost more than one of your bulk buys, such purchases come with a guarantee of quality that could take comfort, and thus wearability, to the next level.
Think Hard About Color Scheme
Color scheme is a central focus for any capsule undertaking, and neutral colors that work in a variety of ways are best. This is likely in direct opposition to your focus until now, with many thinking that the perfect bracelet has to be as bright as possible. But, this is a falsehood that clearly is not serving. Instead, look for pieces in gold and silver above all and think how these could compliment as many outfits as possible.
Make Sure To Mix And Match
Capsule wardrobes are also about mixing and matching, so make a real effort to do this. Do not simply wear your new bracelet with one outfit and consider the task complete. Instead, play around with different ways to integrate key accessories. Play around with bracelet/earring combos, and whatever you do, make sure that you’re getting the wear that you should out of your accessory capsule at last.
