How To Properly Match Jewelry with Your Outfits
There's a big difference between jewelry and accessories. While the former is permanent, the latter refers to any article that can be taken off or added to an outfit. The difference comes down to function as much as form.
The permanence of jewelry is part of its power, but additionally requires a certain level of responsibility when it comes to coordinating accessorizes.
A lot of women tend to wear the same pieces of jewelry over and over again. They might love the piece, but if it's the only one they have, they're limited in what they can wear it with. If you have a nice watch, try coordinating it with your other accessories––a belt or a pair of earrings––instead of just pairing it with every outfit you own. When selecting pieces to add to your collection, don't be afraid to spend a little more on something beautiful that you'll be able to wear again and again. You'll definitely get your money's worth when you can wear an accessory with multiple outfits!
When it comes to coordinating jewelry to your outfit, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. The general rule of thumb is that the piece of jewelry you choose should complement your outfit––the color, the texture and the style. The best way to pull off this look is to follow your instincts. If you have a necklace that includes all three of these elements (i.e., color, texture, and style), then go ahead and wear it with any outfit you please.
However, if you're having trouble matching jewelry to your outfits, whether it's a mismatched color or too much going on at once, here are some guidelines to help you out:
Choose jewelry according to the type of occasion
Jewelry is a personal, often intimate addition to your outfit. It also helps you put together a look. Jewelry can bring a simple outfit together or transform a plain dress into something spectacular. You can wear jewelry to make yourself look taller, bolder or slimmer.
When choosing the right jewelry for an outfit, consider where you'll be wearing it and how you want to feel.
Wear the right thing at the right time. If you're going to work and want to feel professional, don't cover yourself in bling. Dangling earrings and bracelets might sound attractive, but if you're spending most of the day on a computer keyboard, your dangling wrist jewelry doesn't work so well.
If you're dressing for church and don't want to draw too much attention from people's gazes, skip on the flashy, chunky rings and necklaces with large pendants and colorful gemstones. They may be beautiful pieces of jewelry just by themselves, but they won't help you keep a low profile.
Jewelry for festive occasions
Even if the dress code is casual, dressier jewelry can be worn by anyone. If you have an elegant necklace or bracelet, it can be worn with a t-shirt and jeans. When in doubt about what is appropriate, it's always better to play it safe and put on less jewelry than more.
Sparkly jewels have their place in every woman's wardrobe. They're perfect for special occasions and other times when you want to look your best. Just make sure that there isn't too much sparkle for the occasion. Sometimes less is more when it comes to bling.
Identify all of your options
You have so many options when it comes to jewelry. Bracelets, necklaces, rings, earrings and watches all come in various shapes, sizes, colors and widths. They can be made from materials such as gold, silver and diamonds. The shape of the jewelry also varies from chunky to thin. If you do not know where to begin when it comes to matching jewelry with your outfits, a lot of educated guessing will have to be done on your part. First things first: decide on the colors that best match your wardrobe — for example black, brown or white — and then match those colors accordingly.
When choosing a watch, think about what you're wearing that day. For example if you're wearing a casual t-shirt and jeans, you want to make sure your watch matches that outfit. If you want to wear two types of watches, try to keep them the same color. This will keep your outfits looking more cohesive. When choosing a ring make sure it's the right size for you hand. Make sure your ring is not too small or too big for your finger because it will look awkward when taking pictures if your hand is squished or spread out. It's also important to know if you have any allergies before wearing something new on your skin like a bracelet or necklace made out of a certain material like metal or leather.
In addition, it is very important to maintain your jewelry. This means that you should clean it regularly, so as not to leave stains on your clothes. You can clean it with ultrasonic cleaning and restore its radiance. Best of all, after this kind of cleaning, your jewelry will be like new, no matter how many years you have owned it.
Choose the right wardrobe that matches the jewelry
When choosing precious pieces of jewelry like rings, necklaces and bracelets, it's all about the details. To keep your accessories simple and delicate, pair them with an outfit that has delicate embellishment such as sequins or embroidery. The delicate nature of the detailing on your clothes will match perfectly with the delicate nature of the detailing on your jewelry. This combo creates a soft and elegant look while keeping things interesting. The same rule applies when mixing bold pieces with plain pieces. It's all about balance! Chunky statement jewelry looks incredible paired with plain clothing items like a white T-shirt or denim jeans. If you'd like to try this trend but aren't quite sure where to start, simply add one large piece of statement jewelry such as a chunky necklace or oversized hoop earrings. This one piece can easily make an outfit look instantly chic and well put together!
When coordinating several pieces of jewelry at once, balance is key to successfully accessorising your outfit.
When choosing jewelry, you want to think about the color of your outfit. If your outfit is bright and colorful, choose a piece of neutral jewelry. This will help you look pulled together without getting lost in all of the color.
If you are wearing a deep V neckline, try a long pendant necklace or one that hits right above your cleavage. This will draw attention to your neckline without distracting from your outfit.
Short, statement necklaces look nice with a sweetheart neckline. Choose something that hits at the collarbone or below the bust line.
Layered necklaces and statement necklaces look nice with crew neck clothing. Try different lengths to see which style looks best with your outfit.
