One of the easiest ways to fight aging and appear more youthful, fun and vibrant is by focusing on the jewelry you wear. Jewelry and accessories play a major role in any fashion statement and choosing the right pieces can literally take years off any look. Here are some top de-aging jewelry tips:

1. Spice Things Up

Top 5 De-Aging Jewelry Style Tips A common fashion mistake is letting jewelry become more and more conservative as you age and relying too much on fine jewelry versus branching out into fashion/costume and handmade (one-of-a-kind) jewelry. Keep jewelry statements fresh by mixing together fine and fashion jewelry and a combination of different metals, finishes and materials, such as leather and pearls, shiny and matte or smooth and rough textured surfaces.

Incorporate unexpected, edgy, kitschy or trendy motifs into jewelry designs such as skulls, spikes, shark teeth, snakes, insects, tassels and more. Play up the scale of jewelry by designing with oversized pearls, chunky gemstones, large-link chain and attention-getting pendants for youthfully inspired statements. Have fun experimenting with non-traditional jewelry styles, such as toe rings or ear cuffs for a cutting-edge look.

2. Bibs Aren't Just for Babies

Keep necklaces short and sweet. Chunky bib-style necklaces brighten the face and draw attention upward towards the eyes, especially in mixes of pearls, crystals, beads and stones that reflect light. Bib necklaces can also disguise sun-damaged skin, can be easily dressed up and down, and offer the perfect complement to flattering V-neck and scoop necklines.

3. Stacked Up Style

Start stacking bracelets, rings and necklaces for a younger-looking appearance. Layering jewelry and mixing in different pieces exudes a fun and youthful spirit. For example, layer a pendant charm necklace with a long chain necklace, wear a few mismatched bracelet bangles, a multi-strand bracelet and necklace, or a couple of different rings together.

4. Color Your World

Take years off your look by adding bright pops of color to black, navy and beige outfits. Colorful jewelry is cheery, fun and when worn near the face can instantly enhance the complexion. Brightly colored bracelets are a smart choice for three-quarter length sleeves. Shockingly bright-colored earrings make a major impact and large-stone cocktail rings are extra memorable. Experiment with brilliant jewel tones and even neon-colored jewelry for stunning results. Ombré color patterning and color-blocking techniques are a great way to master a colorful fashion statement.

5. A Stud Magnet

Attract attention and avoid showing droopy earlobes with statement stud earrings. Studs, along with slim hoops, are lightweight, easy to wear and can be beautifully showcased by smoothing hair behind the ears or wearing a ponytail. Incorporate colorful elements, shiny crystal beads, clusters of seed beads, sparkly gems, floral motifs and filigree or lace-like materials for stud earrings that are anything but small in terms of their fashion influence.
