    it might be a good idea to tone down flashy, glittery jewelry especially if out by yourself at night. A sparkle from a big earring or necklace can draw the attention of a bad actor because it 1. identifies the wearer as usually female and 2. suggests that said wearer might have items of interest to a bad guy. It can draw the attention of people whose attention would be unwelcome, which is in the same nature of the situational awareness you are describing (aka "street smarts").
