Visually, they draw attention to aging skin of the earlobes and neck. Earrings don’t have to become the centerpiece of the look in this case, so neat and simple ones will be a better option.

Jewelry ensembles

Too old-fashioned. This is not in style anymore. A set of jewelry will give you an air of the previous century.


Be careful with them. They are not a taboo, but the simpler the better. A good example would be a long pearl necklace worn with a stylish white blouse and black pantsuit.

Wrong metal

If your skin is of a warmer shade, then go with gold. Silver is more suitable for pale skin. The wrong metal can highlight your wrinkles.

Accessories that look ridiculous on mature women


It goes without saying, doesn’t it? This accessory is too daring. Leave it for teenage girls. It will look at the very least strange on a mature woman.

Handmade low-quality accessories

No threads, beads, and other handmade stuff. Not only is it ‘teenage jewelry,’ it is considered tasteless and unfashionable. There is no place for these in your jewelry box.

Accessories of childish shapes

Leave all the elephants, shells, and stars in their past. Such decoration will definitely not benefit an adult woman.

Several bracelets and rings at the same time

It’s unadvised to overload your image with such accessories unless you are on an island dancing by the fire.

  2. Choose light earrings of minimalistic design.
  3. Combine different accessories, for example, a minimalistic ring and a stylish watch of another metal.
  4. If you are buying jewelry, go for quality.

Try incorporating all these tips in your looks and forget about appearing older than you really are.
