Statement Jewelry: Rules For Doing It Right // Guest Post
Jewelry is an essential component of any fashionable outfit. But doing it right can be a challenge, especially when you want to make a statement. In this article, we’re going to take a bit of a dive into some of the rules for wearing jewelry right. Here’s what to do.
Match Jewelry To The Neckline
If you want your necklace to stand out, it’s important to match it to your neckline. The best necklines are off-the-shoulder, strapless, and v-neck dresses for when you want to emphasize a statement piece. Other necklines, such as halter necks and collars don’t work as well. Ideally, you want bare skin underneath a necklace so that people can admire the item more.
Pair Rings With A Manicure
Rings look great on their own, but you can take them to the next level with the help of a professional manicure. Manicures paired with Tacori rings can help to create a dramatic effect: just make sure that the color of the acrylics doesn’t clash with the gemstones in the ring. Subtle, natural tones tend to work best with most rings, while glittery or multi-colored manicures can conflict.
One Bangle Per Arm
People like mixing and matching bracelets so much that some decide to wear their whole collection all in one go. But if you’re looking to make a statement, this is probably the worst thing you could do. Statement jewelry is designed to be worn on its own, which is why you should limit yourself to a single bangle per arm. A single bracelet will generate a focal point, enhancing - not detracting - from the look you’re going for.
Use Jewelry To Create An Outfit
Jewelry isn’t an afterthought or something which stands by itself: it’s an integral part of any outfit and should be treated as such.
If you’re going for a vintage or floral look, try pairing this with floral bracelets and rings. For more professional or sophisticated outfits, go with simple colors, like gold and silver, and clean, straight lines. Diamonds, or equivalent substitutes, work perfectly on these occasions.
Choose The Right Earrings
Earrings are usually the first item of jewelry that people notice because they frame the face. As a result, you need to choose your earrings wisely. First off, it’s worth only choosing earrings that suit the shape of your face. Many women believe that the type of earrings they want has no impact on what they look like, but face shape plays an important role. It’s also worth thinking about which colors and styles will suit your hair. If you have long, dark hair, for instance, you may want to include bigger, bolder earrings. Those with shorter hair should stick with studs.
Keep Your Clothing Simple
The purpose of statement jewelry is to create an impact. As a result, it’s often big and bold. But overdoing it with busy patterns and colors can ruin your look, so it’s important to make sure that you keep the rest of your clothing simple. Wear two attention-grabbing pieces of jewelry alongside a simple, plain dress.
