When picking out jewelry to accompany your outfit, it can often be difficult finding something that matches. Most women tend to question if they look too casual or too over the top with their attire as it is and adding jewelry into the equation only exacerbates matters.
We can all agree that the right piece of jewelry can complete any look and enhance the overall appeal but finding the right pieces to wear for each particular outfit, and each specific occasion is the key to success. And with so many choices available, it’s all about finding which items work better.
Every woman has its own collection of jewelry. If your jewelry box is like a treasure trove of goodies full to the brim, it can be overwhelming picking out suitable pieces.
Nothing is more irritating than buying a beautiful necklace or a fantastic pair of diamond earrings that end up never seeing the light of day as we can never decide what to pair them with.
Below are some helpful tips when it comes to deciding what pieces of jewelry to wear and when.
The Wedding Guest
Special occasions – they wouldn’t be quite the same without your select pieces of jewelry that compliment your sophisticated glam look. They present the perfect excuse to sport those unique accessories you have on your collection so you may as well make the most of it. Start by putting your outfit together and then begin to layer your jewelry accordingly.
If you intend on wearing lots of colors, it’s always a good idea to keep your jewelry colorless so that it doesn’t clash too much with your outfit and instead offer a sophisticated tone to your look, so stick with gold or silver and clear stones.
Some solid colors work well with contrasting tones. For instance, red attires always look super glam when teamed with emerald stones, be it in a ring, necklace, or earrings. The key to getting it absolutely right is not to go too overboard. Remember, less is always more!
The Working Woman
Now’s not the time to flash the sparkle, although minimal bling may be acceptable. Store the fancy stuff away for elegant events and go with something smart, toned down, and not too overbearing or distracting. For a meeting or interview, you want to dress the part and look sharp so opt for a nice smart suit and crisp white blouse. To pair with that outfit, look for something simple yet stylish such as diamond studs, a delicate pendant necklace, and a nice watch. Gold or silver tends to look smart and elegant.
The Dinner Party Guest
Deciding on what to wear for a dinner party depends on the type of event you are attending. Black tie or formal party calls for something unique and exquisite, but for any other kind of dinner party, you may be free to wear what you like. The ultra-formal event asks for something to compliment your special gown. Opt for diamond drop earrings, necklaces, and bracelets to make your appeal sparkle and pop.
On the other hand, if you’re attending a casual dinner party, you should skip wearing more elaborate pieces. Delicate pieces or silver chains are elegant, classic designs that are perfect for every occasion.
And remember always to wear the most precious accessory of all–your smile!
