When it comes to incorporating accessories into your outfits, it’s important to show restraint. If you catch yourself stacking a dozen necklaces, rings, and bracelets, donning a row of earrings, and donning one rhinestone-encrusted belt at a time, you’ve gone too far – and that’s especially true if you you feel the slightest bit uncomfortable doing it. You need to be confident in your ability to add items like a necklace (and maybe one or two bracelets, earrings, or rings). TLDR: One or two props shouldn’t trigger impostor syndrome.
So how exactly can you increase your self-confidence? Repetition! If you pick up the rhythm of wearing a necklace every day, literally no one can stop you. You’ll get used to the way it hangs around your neck, how it looks over or under your diapers, and how certain designs – chain, pendant, ring, or even choker – suit different outfits.
