They say that a lot of things change in your 30s — friends, goals, personal style, and of course, jewelry. This is a time to streamline your favorite baubles and keep the ones that are timeless and versatile. Enough with the “I-can-only-buy-cheap-pieces” attitude and start updating your looks.
Your 30s are a time where you feel more confident, as you don’t need to keep up with the trends — you just have to know what’s right for you.
Jewelry for the Right Occasion
This is what every woman needs to know and not just women in their 30s. On special occasions like your friend’s wedding, add some oomph to your look by wearing jewelry that is a bit sparkly. Don’t look “too glamorous” when doing the groceries, but wear them when you’re on a fun night out. During job interviews, wear a piece that makes you look professional.
Let One Statement Jewelry Shine
One thing that most people learn when they’ve reached 30 is how to wear a statement piece the right way. At this age, the key to looking put-together is to wear one statement piece, while keeping the rest of your jewelry to a minimum. You don’t want to look like you’re trying way too hard by showing everything off at once.
The Tried-and-True “Classics”
Trends come and go, but the classics always remain. Cliche-ic but true. Think jeweled rings, sophisticated earrings like pearls, and gold bracelets. These pieces have stood the test of time and are worn by many celebrities. It’s absolutely okay to embrace clothing trends, but it’s not the same for jewelry. Fill your jewelry collection with classic pieces and you won’t regret it. Be it gold, silver or rose gold, you won’t have a hard time dressing up your wardrobe with your favorite bauble.
Quality Over Quantity
Last but not least, invest in quality pieces. Purchase jewelry that you can wear time and time again. Those feathered earrings that you got for a bargain? Time to ditch them! Those glitzy trinkets that are currently on sale? Nope, don’t event try to stock up on cheap junk just because they are budget-friendly. Don’t disappoint yourself by buying budget products that would soon fade or break. Go for authentic pieces (though they can sometimes come at a higher price but are worth it!) that you can wear whatever the occasion.
Notice how relaxed you can be when you’re in your 30s? While you get excited about wearing different jewelry styles in your 20s, your 30s call for a more refined and streamlined look. But remember, no matter how polished you look, the most beautiful piece you can wear is your charm and confidence.
