Tips of Wearing Jewellery:
Which type of jewellery you wear with your outfit????
"Jewellery is the
perfect way to bring life to an outfit and enhance your best features. What better
way to do so than to complete your look with a bold, striking and attention-grabbing
piece of jewellery?"
Jewellery are designed for you to have fun with, but can make all the wrong statements
if they are not worn correctly.
The beauty of jewellery is that it only takes one piece to make your whole outfit
stand out. The key is to keep it simple and either work your outfit around one big
eye-catching piece, or to work well-coordinated accessories into your look by striking
the right balance.
From cocktail rings to cuff bracelets and bib necklaces, jewellery come in all forms,
designs, colours and sizes. They can work wonders to add dazzle to a simple dress
or can help to draw attention to parts of yourself that you would like to emphasize.
Either way, make sure you follow our tips to pull off a look that gets people looking
at you in awe rather than dismay.
Keep It Simple:
Big accessories are best worn with simple clothes. Steer clear of busy patterns
and embellishments such as sequins when wearing bold jewelry. Remember, you want
your statement piece to stand out, so match items wisely.
A little black dress is the perfect match for one or two attention-grabbing pieces,
while jeans and a pure white top will make an ideal backdrop for something big,
bright and colourful. Try to stick to neutral and block colour items when wearing
bright and detailed accessories. Less busy pieces can work very well with patterned
items of clothing, however.
Don’t pull the focus away from your bold jewelry. Coordinate smaller accessories
with your statement pieces by keeping them to a minimum and sticking to the same
colour or metal.
Bold pieces should
be allowed to stand out, so do not over-crowd your look by wearing them within close
proximity of each other. It is preferable to wear one at a time, but if you do want
to wear more than one heavy jewellery piece, make sure not to wear bracelets and
rings together and avoid wearing earrings and necklaces at the same time.
Chandelier earrings and a cuff
bracelet can look beautiful when worn together, while
a long necklace and a cocktail ring can match perfectly. Just make sure to select
items that coordinate. Try to stick with the same kind of metal and avoid clashing
patterns and charms.
Layered chain necklaces can look extremely charming if worn correctly. Keep your
look tasteful by making sure that you do not layer too many strands together and
keep tabs on how much sparkle you layer on.
Avoid wearing long chain necklaces, however, if you are wearing a belt, as there
will be too much going on around the same area. Wide chokers and bib necklaces can
stand to be your sole statement piece, so let such items take center stage and forgo
other pieces of jewelry.
Match The Right Necklace With The
The best way to make sure a statement necklace stands out is to wear it with the
right neckline. Strapless, off-the shoulder, scoop necked or v-necked dresses and
tops are ideal, as they will let your statement piece do the talking.
Collars, halter necks and detailing close to the face should be avoided, as they
will clash with bold pieces. A one-colour turtle-neck sweater can work beautifully
with a statement necklace, provided that it is form-fitting and one colour throughout.
Make sure to wear a statement necklace next to a simple and preferably one-colour
top to keep the look chic and to do your necklace justice. You can never go wrong
with neutral tones, so wear bright and attention-grabbing necklaces with black,
white to keep the look elegant.
Necklaces of different lengths:
-15-16" is called "Choker length" and hits just above the collar bone.
-18" length chains are called "Princess Length" and hit just below the collar bone.
-22-23" length necklaces are called "Matinee length"
-28-36" necklaces are called "Opera length"
-37" or longer necklaces are called "Sautoir or Rope Length"
Statement earrings are beautiful, ornate and cannot be missed. They will be the
first thing that anyone talking to you will notice. To make sure they frame your
face, choose a pair that suits your face shape and enhances your features. Choosing
the wrong pair can be distracting, so take details such as length, colour, shape
and outfit coordination into consideration when choosing adornment for your ears.
When wearing dangly statement earrings, it is better to keep your hair sleek and
not too big. Remember, it’s all about balance, so while you can pump up the volume
with simple earrings, larger ones will balance better with loose waves or poker-straight
Alternatively, pull your hair up into a chic chignon(hair style). Also make sure
that your make-up balances well with your earrings. If you are wearing a brightly
coloured pair, they may look best with clean and simple makeup.
Adorn Your Arms
Cuff bracelets are
an excellent choice if you want to wear a statement piece. To show yours off, keep
your arms bare or wear a cuff over a slim-fitting one colour long sleeve top. Stick
to one cuff to create a focal point.
Bangles are another great option. Just remember that if you would like to stack
a number of bangles together, stick to one arm only. Keep to a maximum of six bangles
at a time as a general rule of thumb to avoid overdoing it and make sure that the
bangles’ colours and patterns complement each other. When layering bangles, throwing
in some gold or silver always looks great.
Pay Attention To Your Hands:
When wearing a bold ring, it is worth remembering that it will draw attention to
your hands, and consequently, your nails, so make sure they are perfectly groomed.
Go for a simple manicure.
Make sure that the colour of your nail polish does not clash with the colours in
your ring, and avoid wearing a bold and colourful ring with multi-coloured manicures,
nail art and glittery nail polish. While this may look cute on an adolescent, it
does not exactly convey a statement of elegance.
These eye-catching rings are the smallest of all the statement pieces, so have as
much fun with them as you like. The bigger and brighter, the better. Just remember
that balance is key, so it is better to wear one at a time.
That Create An Outfit:
Remember that statement pieces are supposed to make – you guessed it – a statement,
so choose pieces that help to create an over-all outfit. If you are going for a
prim and polished look, opt for pearls.
Vintage or floral pieces will look beautiful with a beautiful and feminine outfit,
while colourful beads are a must if you are going for a boho look. A bold cuff will
compliment a block colour dress, while chandelier earrings will look gorgeous with
a long flowing maxi.
