Incorporating Redesigned Vintage Jewelry into Your Everyday Outfits: A Guide

Incorporating Redesigned Vintage Jewelry into Your Everyday Outfits: A Guide

When it comes to wearing vintage jewelry, you might be wondering how it can best be worn with any modern-day outfit. Looking stylish doesn’t end at your shoes and clothing — by complimenting your outfits with your favorite vintage jewelry, you can create a look that bleeds elegancy, sophistication and class. With that being said, here’s a guide to incorporating vintage jewelry pieces into your everyday outfits.

1. Always stack an odd number of bracelets.

Be sure to always wear multiple vintage bracelets when combining them with modern-day clothing items — preferably, you should stack an odd number of bracelets. A good starting place for you is to wear three comfortable vintage bracelets that you feel confident in. Your outfit will have a huge impact on what you should and shouldn’t wear together and wearing a long-sleeve shirt will mean that you have to avoid wearing vintage bracelets (or select sleeker pieces to wear underneath your sleeves).

2. How to Wear Different Kinds of Rings

If you’re wearing a ring, chances are you haven’t yet considered how to wear it properly — unspoken fashion culture rules dictate that different kinds of rings must be worn on different fingers for different occasions.

Wear wedding and engagement rings on your left ring finger (the exception to this rule is entirely cultural, as some may choose the right index finger instead). Vintage rings with no connection to marriage or a relationship should be worn on a thumb, middle finger, or left index finger (the choice is yours, but showing off your new ring on your left index finger is a practice that’s been going on for centuries).

3. Choosing a Necklace to Fit Your Neckline

The neckline of your outfit will factor into the kind of necklace you choose to wear. While deeper necklines and plunging shirts allow for longer and more elaborate necklaces to be worn, higher necklines require shorter pieces. This fashion decision can be made only by you — but for the sake of brevity, if you’re ever stuck on what vintage necklace to wear, know that a small pendant or handmade lariat (knotted) necklace will look great with just about any outfit or neckline. Necklaces are highly underrated fashion accessories and knowing how to wear one properly can make all the difference.

4. The Proper Way to Wear Earrings: Vintage-Style

Earrings’ color, length, and overall shape influence the kinds of outfits they will work with. If you’re struggling with a particular look, add a pair of earrings to the mixture and see if your

entire outfit hasn’t suddenly improved. But, before you do, here are some tips to take into consideration.

You should wear longer/larger earrings if you style your hair back or leave it short. If you have a longer hairstyle, you may want to look into shorter earrings so as not to take away from your hair. Also, if you choose to wear vintage earrings for an evening, ditch the vintage bracelets and necklaces. Luxury jewelry etiquette demands it. Fortunately, a pair of vintage earrings is enough to spruce up and renovate your entire look without the need for other vintage fashion accessories.

5. Remember the Five Fashion Factors: Occasion, Outfit, Neckline, Material, and Hairstyle

That’s it! Fashion doesn’t have to be complicated once you know and understand the simple rules it operates by — use this knowledge to wow your friends at your next dinner gala.
