With our tips and tricks, any woman can wear accessories right and look amazing.

Let's get started!
Our guide is here to help you choose the best women's accessories to wear in 2022 - and to give you tips on how to wear them.
If you haven't been using bracelets before, it's time to start now. Bracelets have been among the top women's accessories for a while now and they'll continue to be there in 2022 also.
Your style has an impact on what types of bracelets suit you the best. Whether you're into classic clothes or street style or anything in between, there is a perfect bracelet out there that fits the style perfectly. Remember that a bracelet should be there as a subtle detail. Not as the centerpiece of your outfit, but definitely as a distinct part of the look.
If your style is classy and elegant and you wear blazers, pants, skirts, dresses, and high heels on the regular, your style would be best complemented with delicate chain/cuff bracelets in precious metal colors, enhanced with crystals or pearls. If your style is more easygoing and your wardrobe consists of more comfy and casual clothes, such as hoodies, jeans, tees, and sneakers, a more laid-back bracelet style might be more suitable for you. Try a beaded bracelet for example.
Today, mixing styles is a big trend. You can tell by the trend of wearing sneakers with anything, even to a party or to a club. In jewelry, you don't have to go by any etiquette (dress code events excluded), you can mix and match different styles to create a combination that pleases you. Remember, with elegant, simple and subtle jewelry, you can't go wrong.
Tip: Depending on the style of the bracelet, you can wear just one or stack many to maximize the effect. If one bracelet is not enough, you can stack as many thin chain bracelets and cuff bracelets on the same wrist as you like. Anyhow, do not match the bracelets on both of your wrists. Preferably, leave one wrist unoccupied.
Earrings are one very small but significant detail. Of course, there are all kinds of earrings, including drop earrings, hoop earrings, and statement earrings which all vary in size, but most commonly used earrings are tiny stud earrings. Some might think that "there's no point in wearing small earrings, no-one's going to notice them anyway", but that's wrong. You really might be surprised by the amount of attention other people pay to details. If you're wearing small, beautiful earrings, they will be noticed.
If you're not used to wearing earrings, you probably want to start small. Get yourself a beautiful and timeless pair of stud earrings in your favorite precious metal. These kinds of earrings are great for every-day use, they go on casual days as well as in the office and on special events. For their small size, they can be combined with any necklace and hair accessories.
If you're looking for a more dashing look, choose a bigger, eye-catching pair of earrings. For example, hoop earrings, tassel earrings, statement earrings, and delicate but sizable wire earrings are totally in style in 2022.
One thing is sure: wristwatches never go out of style. A watch is a form of self-expression. The style of the watch on your wrist tells other people a lot about your lifestyle. That should be kept in mind when choosing a watch to wear. Some people like to own just one, good quality watch that they can use in any occasion. Others prefer to have more choice and variety and own multiple different wristwatches that they can alternate even daily.
Women's watch trends in 2022 continue in a quite simple style, similar to what we have seen in past years. Plain designs, neutral colors, precious metals, leather, and marble are all features that will be seen in the top watches of 2022. The outlook of the watches is usually very minimalist and the most common colors are white, black, gold, silver and rose gold. The great thing about these types of watches is that they are often very versatile and can be used with casual as well as formal outfits.
Keep in mind, that to achieve the perfect look, your watch metals should match other metals used in your clothes, accessories, and jewelry. This way the whole outfit combination will be in harmony and perfectly put together.
Simplicity and elegance will be the main watch trends for women in 2022. These watches are from our Watch Collection.
Tip: A watch is something other people pay attention to. We recommend having at least two watches - it makes combining your watch with your other jewelry and clothes so much easier.
Handbags are one of the largest and most noticeable accessories a woman can wear, thus, making it one of the most significant and important ones.
Your handbag doesn't have to cost a fortune. If it's in good shape and looks well kept, it's enough. There's nothing worse than women wearing threadbare handbags with otherwise a great outfit. That if anything ruins the whole outfit.
You might be able to survive with just one handbag, but most women prefer having multiple bags in different sizes, colors, and styles. This is for a good reason since many occasions require a certain type of handbag. If you own just one bag, there are so many different situations where the perfectly suitable handbag is something else that the one that you own.
Another thing to consider when choosing a handbag is, to what purpose you need it for. For work or school, you usually need a spacious bag that has room enough for your books, laptop, lunch, essentials, etc. On a night out, a big bag is just in the way, and what you usually prefer is a smaller crossbody or clutch bag, that holds your essentials but not much more. There are situations like this and countless others, and having a suitable bag for all of them makes life so much better. As said before, your handbags don't have to cost a fortune, so don't worry about not being able to afford them.
The handbags below are from our collection. They are all very affordable, durable and convenient. Check out our collection of affordable, high-quality handbags here.
Tip: If you're tight on budget, focus on neutral-colored and versatile bags. Pay for quality, but not for the brand. This way you'll get the most bang for your buck.
Rings are more than just wedding bands. Wearing rings makes you look elegant and lets people know that you pay attention to details. Wearing a ring is probably the easiest way to add elegance to your outfit since it's a small accessory that basically can't be worn wrong. If you match the metals and colors of your rings with your other accessories and clothes, it's a great way to complement your outfit and make it look whole.
The three main women's ring trends for 2022 are elegant, expensive-looking crystal rings, eye-catching statement rings, and thin, simple rings that you can stack to create the perfect combination. They are all beautiful and elegant choices, just pick whatever style works best for you and goes well with your outfit.
Elegant, expensive-looking crystal rings
Expensive-looking but affordable rings often look like their costly sisters but are made of more affordable materials. Instead of diamonds, they are enhanced with cubic zircons, and instead of being full gold, platinum, or rose gold, they are plated with them. Well-cut cubic zircons look almost identical to diamonds, and cannot be distinguished with the bare eye. Since this kind of rings look a lot more expensive than they are, wearing one is a great way to add some luxe to your look, even if you're on a budget.
Eye-catching statement rings
Statement rings are the perfect companion on a night out or at a party. They are quite massive, making them a great centerpiece of your outfit. With a statement ring, you don't need other rings, since it's at its best when worn alone. Statement rings often come in eye-catching colors and designs, which suits perfectly to their ornamental nature.
Thin, simple, stackable rings
Stackable rings are very trendy at the moment. As they are stacked on many fingers, they can attract the attention, and as they are individually very subtle, simple, and thin, you can easily control the volume and placement of the rings. The most popular metals of stacked rings in 2022 will be silver and gold since they are the most timeless ones and the easiest to combine to any outfit.
