You might think that if you’re wearing a bold outfit, you should pair it with basic, simple jewelry to avoid an overwhelming appearance. While this is a great rule of thumb to keep in mind, it doesn’t always apply.

Sometimes, experimenting with pairing a bold outfit with bold jewelry can turn out great. Other times, it can be a catastrophe. You should be willing to try out different looks; don’t ever be scared to experiment, or you might miss out on something great. If you do choose to pair a boldly printed dress with a chunky necklace or dangly earrings, however, make sure the shapes and colors of the pieces are complementary to keep your look appearing whimsical and sleek and avoid a choppy and thrown-together look.
