We all know how difficult could be to pick the perfect outfit, and if we add to that the stress of pairing them with the right jewelry it could be a nightmare.
It’s great to have choices, but too many can turn dressing into something dreadful. If this sounds familiar, don’t think for a second you’re alone! Women all over the world are stuck in this predicament every week––if not every day!
In fact, women spend an average of 90 minutes a week in their closets choosing what to wear.
So here are some tips on how to coordinate jewelry with your outfit.
1. Jewelry Should Match The Occasion
Dangling wrist jewelry doesn’t work so well when you’re typing on a keyboard. If you’re dressing for work (and you plan on typing a lot at work), you might want to skip the bangles and hanging bracelets.
Your choice of jewelry for church hopefully wouldn’t be the same selection as an evening at the club. Make sure to consider where you’re going, what you’ll be doing, and how the jewelry comes off to onlookers.
2. Patterns And Simple Jewelry Is A Great Choice
Whenever you decide to dress in flashy patterns or regular patterns, the best choice is to use solid bracelets, watches, and earrings instead of showy accessories.
Don’t forget to take your outfit into consideration because too much ornate jewelry can be also tacky.
3. Use Earrings To Highlight Your Face
Always be careful and take the shape of your face into account when you choose the pair of earrings that better fit your outfit but also your face.
Ladies with heart-shaped faces, for example, might consider drop earrings that don’t taper at the bottom. Ladies with oval faces should consider studs and triangular earrings to show off their cheekbones.
4. Mixing Warm Jewelry With Cool Colors
Rubies, canary diamonds, and amber gems make a statement by themselves. These colors are fiery and ambitious and look great over black and white. But did you think you could pair them with their opposite colors?
Warm gemstones pair nicely with plain blue or purple material. For instance, a set of rubies on top of a royal blue top completes the look with a bold statement.
5. Mixing Cool Jewelry With Warm Colors
There’s a science behind matching up colors in fashion. Many stylists refer to the color wheel for inspiration.
The color wheel will tell you that as warm and cool shades blend one way, they also blend in the opposite. Deep green and dark blue gemstones pop against a yellow or orange dress.
Striking the balance between cool and warm colors is basically what accessorizing is all about. Try to coordinate jewelry and outfits to be the prettiest “opposites attract” example out there.
