How to Find Your Personal Jewellery Style

Your jewellery collection is more than just an assortment of accessories—it's a reflection of your unique personality, tastes, and lifestyle. Having the right jewellery pieces can completely revolutionise how you feel about the clothes in your wardrobe and every outfit you wear.

Whether you lean towards minimalist elegance, dopamine dressing, bohemian chic, or classic sophistication, finding your jewellery style will not only improve your wardrobe but enhance every item of clothing you wear.

If you're tired of rummaging through your jewellery box, only to find nothing matches your outfit—this guide to finding your personal jewellery style is here to help! From defining your aesthetic to discovering your must-have jewellery essentials, following these steps will help you to curate a jewellery collection to match your personal style.




How to Find Your Personal Jewellery Style


How to Find Your Jewellery Style

Discovering your personal jewellery style takes time and experimentation. It starts by reflecting on your fashion preferences and personal aesthetic. Consider the nuances of your wardrobe choices and how you prefer to express yourself through your outfits.

Your jewellery style should align with your overall aesthetic, complementing and accentuating your outfit choices to encapsulate your unique personal style.



Define Your Aesthetic

Take a moment to reflect on your fashion preferences. Do you prefer minimalist style, dopamine dressing, bohemian flair, or the timeless classics?

Consider the clothing styles, colours, and textures you gravitate towards, and how you dress on a daily basis. The jewellery you choose to wear should complement your outfit choices, helping to define and enhance your personal style.



Gather Inspiration

If you're struggling to define your aesthetic, gather inspiration from social media and fashion magazines. Create a mood board or Pinterest board featuring outfits and styles that catch your eye.

Pay attention to any recurrent themes, colours, and styles, as well as materials, shapes, and textures. This will give you an idea of what to look for when choosing what jewellery pieces to buy.



Evaluate Your Wardrobe

A look inside your existing wardrobe to help identify the key pieces you love to wear will help you to decide what jewellery pieces to buy. Jewellery should complement your clothing and enhance your everyday outfits.

Versatile jewellery styles are the best choice for any wardrobe as they can seamlessly transition from day to night and from casual to formal situations. They're also easy to mix and match, ensuring you get the maximum wear out of all your pieces.



How to Find Your Personal Jewellery Style


Consider Your Lifestyle

By now you may have an idea of the jewellery styles or specific pieces you want to buy. Before making any purchases, consider your lifestyle. You daily activities and routines will influence the type of jewellery you wear.

If you lead an active lifestyle, opt for durable and low-maintenance pieces that can withstand wear and tear. For professional settings, choose classic, sophisticated jewellery.



Seek Quality Over Quantity

It's better to have a few pieces of jewellery that matches your personal style perfectly, than to have a dozen options that are not quite right.

When shopping for accessories, look for sustainable jewellery made by reputable brands known for their craftsmanship and attention to detail. Quality jewellery not only looks better but can be worn for years—unlike fast fashion!



Experiment with Different Styles

Although having jewellery pieces that perfectly match your aesthetic is a great way of ensuring the overall versatility of your wardrobe; don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone occasionally! Experimenting with new jewellery styles can revolutionise how you feel about the clothes you wear.

Whether you borrow pieces from friends and family, or take a risk on statement jewellery; introducing different metals, natural gemstones, and enamel charms will open up new styling possibilities within your existing wardrobe.



Listen to Your Instincts

When it comes to selecting which jewellery pieces to wear with what outfits, trust your instincts. Don't feel pressured to confirm to trends or societal expectations—choose jewellery that speak to you on a deeper level.

The jewellery you wear doesn't always have to match your outfit or even your personal style. Fashion is all about experimentation and expression—have fun!
