Did you know that out of everything we put on as women, jewelry is one of the smallest—and sometimes one of the most expensive? It is also one of the most noticeable aspects of our attire.
It has a way of bringing everything together, which is why it is important that you choose the best jewelry for each outfit.
A lot of us have a lot of jewelry today, but not many of us know how to pick the right ones for each outfit. So we sometimes get it wrong, and other times we do not even put on jewelry for the fear of getting it wrong.
If you are finding it difficult to choose the right jewelry for your outfit, here are some simple things you need to know:
Ensure you scale
Jewelry is meant to make your outfit shine, and this means the right level of balance in terms of size. In other words, it cannot be too small or too large for your outfits. So where can we get the right balance?
When you have busy and patterned outfits, for example, you can pair them with simple and small jewelry. On the other hand, for simple clothes and gowns, you can put on bigger jewellery like big bangles and necklaces. Doing the opposite of this can be counter-productive, as it makes you look a lot less attractive than you should.
Define your style
When accessorizing, you can either be different or general—never in-between. However, those who stand out have their jewelry style defined. This involves combining different types of jewelry for a classic look.
Having a definite style is left up to your level of creativity. However, you do not need to go for excessively large jewelry combinations just to make a statement; you will only look worse.
Consider your skin tone
One major consideration, aside from your outfit, should be your skin tone. For example, for women with lighter skin tones and darker hair, gold is a great choice, while women with cooler skin tones can opt for silver jewelry.
You should never be afraid to experiment because looking good is a lifestyle, not a day’s job.
Matching your outfit
Another way you can choose the best jewellery for your outfit is to first consider the outfit itself. Most of the time, your jewelry can have a lot of space to shine on your outfit, and this is something you can take advantage of.
For example, a gown with a V-shaped neckline can go well with a Y-shaped pendant and some matching earrings. It shines through your outfit and makes you look great as well
Match your outfit colour
Another consideration for choosing the best jewelry for your outfit is the colour of that outfit. This is so important because matching the colour of your outfit to your jewelry makes your outfit stand out without making you look like a riot is going on.
While gold and silver go well with basically all outfit colours, other jewelry colour considerations should be in the same colour family for that great look.
Choosing opposing colours like yellow and purple or orange and blue can be a recipe for disaster. So, consider a colour that matches your outfit, and look as astonishing as you have always wanted to.
Getting the right jewelry for your outfit means trying different things under the umbrella of the rules highlighted here.
You also need to consider where you are going and the theme of the occasion when accessorizing to prevent an outfit fail.
Not everything is about large bangles; you need to follow the rules and look great because you are beautiful.
