4. Wear Appropriate Jewelry To Compliment Your Outfit: When accessorizing with chains and necklaces, it is important to pair your outfits with the right bling. Long length chains are better with turtlenecks and jumpers while short length chains and chokers are better with t-shirts and round necks.

5. Don’t overdo Rings: Wearing the right rings can accentuate your look and give you a refined appearance but there’s a thin line between flashy and trashy so it is important to recognize where that boundary lies. Wearing multiple rings on all fingers is only acceptable if you are a gypsy or Shabba Ranks but if you’re trying to come off as a gentleman than tone down the bling and limit the maximum number of rings to three on all ten fingers.
